The Holy Grail – Week 8 QBs

Alex Smith running onto the field before a 200...

Smith won't pull a Whitehurst this weekend!

Teams on bye week: Falcons, Bears, Packers, Raiders, Jets, Buccaneers

MUST START

1 Brees  vs STL- Much like Graham , there is no other choice for the top spot this week. The stats plus the matchup make this easy.

2 Vick vs Dal – The bye week gave him time to get his legs fresh and recover from the beatings he has been taking. Dallas swarms to the ball , but Vick scores 20 in a bad game.

3 Cam vs Min – What a stud this guy turned out to be as he continues to augment his passing stats with great rushing stats.

4 Brady vs Pit – Would be higher if not for the electric nature of the position this year. Cam, Vick , Brees all have their own claims to the top spot each week and Brady has the misfortune of playing against Pitt.

5 Rivers vs KC – I am loading up on him in Salary Cap games. He is still an elite QB and KC is the perfect matchup for him to show it.

6 Eli vs Mia – Nicks will explode this week and the ‘Fins will have no answer for Bradshaw or Jacobs. Giants will put up a big number.

7 Ben Roethlisberger vs NE – Will have plenty of chances to put up big TD numbers against this horrible defense.

8 Stafford vs Den – Slips a bit in my rankings because of the injury questions – still a must start if healthy b/c of the offense and the upside.

Ok , the iCon is at it again!  We will have some real time , real life , real serious , real money blogging coming on up. Another vanilla standard PPR setup against some no names , some kinda names , and some who shall remain nameless. This installment comes to you from the top end of the draft as iCon was fortunate enough to land a pick in the top 4 which is the reason I decided to blog live about this draft. After giving you an intense look into the war room from the back end of the draft against some of the best that money gaming has to offer , I wanted to give you another look at how to approach a $100 dollar PPR draft from the opposite end of the spectrum.

What to expect: similiar targets , different targets , good values , bad values , overrated players and underrated players.

What not to expect: Sex , Drugs or Jude Law. Jude Law will not be involved in any way shape or form in this draft , not even if he texted me would I let that pouty she-male take part in this draft.

What possibly to expect: A blown pick or two because Mila Ricci aka Mrs iCon woke up from a nap and seems to be hell bent on making the rest of my night as miserable as possible.
