KFFL editors offer up their top five players to draft after Round 8.

Player
Pos
Team Reasoning
Steve Slaton
RB
Houston Texans Quick in short area, he should thrive in zone-blocking scheme; Ahman Green (groin) and Chris Brown (back) already banged up
Maurice Morris
RB
Seattle Seahawks Already co-starter with uninspiring Julius Jones, but he could win lion's share by midseason; Morris is a better receiver
Ted Ginn Jr.
WR
Miami Dolphins The arrival of QB Chad Pennington helps; Ginn thrives on YAC from intermediate routes, which is essentially Pennington's game
Jake Delhomme
QB
Carolina Panthers He has a strong running game, a familiar face (Muhsin Muhammad) and a new threat (D.J. Hackett) to work with
Zach Miller
TE
Oakland Raiders Has skill to be a No. 1 fantasy option, especially in PPR setups; has strongest connection with QB JaMarcus Russell
