Nicholas Minnix's Week 8 fantasy football matchups

by Nicholas Minnix on October 30, 2009 @ 22:21:57 PDT


No-brainers and no-ways? Matchups that look too good to be true certainly can be. And surprise performers lurk in the shadows. It may not be enough to consider lineup changes, but you know what they say about assumptions....

Key Matchup Reason
Donovan McNabb, QB, PHI vs. NYG pass defense No. 5 has played poorly for two straight weeks against bad teams; Giants' pass rush helps them avoid 3-game losing streak.
Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, JAX vs. TEN run defense VY at QB? Jags don't need to run it against this weak pass D. MJD could be sipping Gatorade by the 3rd quarter.
Devery Henderson, WR, NO vs. ATL pass defense Depleted secondary will whiff on a couple of long ones to Henderson in the Monday nighter.
Bo Scaife, TE, TEN vs. JAX pass defense Vince Young has chemistry with ... whom? His former Texas Longhorns teammate is about it. Can he hit the WRs anyway?
Tashard Choice, RB, DAL vs. SEA run defense No rhyme or reason to 'Boys' distribution of touches; Choice still their best option, maybe they remember it this week....
