Isaac’s Fantasy Football Corner – Week 8

Isaac Hunt

Week 8 tip: It’s time to buy into the hype. It’s week 8 and your team most likely has a lot of byes. Pick up the player you have been eying all year like Jeremy Kerley.

En Fuego: Michael Vick. With the help Andy Reid’s bye-week mojo, Vick has thrown for 497 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions, and rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown in his two years with the Eagles as a starter following bye weeks.

Heated: Justin Blackmon. Call me crazy, but Blackmon has had 37 targets this season: That’s eight more than the next leading receiver on his team. Either quarterback will get him targets, and he’ll finally have his breakout game with their lack of running game.

Chilled: Eli Manning. The Cowboys are third against the pass and fresh off of a win. Playing in the Big D won’t fair well for Manning.

Frigid: Vernon Davis. Davis has a total of 37 yards in his last two games. The Cardinals are currently second in points allowed to tight ends; I expect Davis to score around five points.

Week 8 random fact: Rashad Jennings has only averaged 2.6 yards per carry this season. Don’t expect much out of him this week.
