ESPN: Week 8 Fantasy Matchups

We recommend seeing if you can cut a deal for Andre Johnson, and jumping off the Shonn Greene train before it's too late. You'll want to start Andrew Luck this week, but don't play Doug Martin if you have better options.

For the love of god, can you please bring back the +/- percentages, rather than +/- fantasy points? For those of us who play in leagues with non-ESPN-standard scoring, percentages are much more helpful.

+1

Percentages were much more helpful.

Pick 2 starters for me from these scrubs. S moss. Nicks. Djax
And for rb it's between. Mcgahee and D Richardson from stl

For RBs, McGahee. He's Denver's clearcut #1, so he's got more upside.

For WRs, Moss--with Davis out and Garcon still not anywhere near being 100% (even if he does come back next week, which I doubt), Moss will be at least #2 in DC behind Hankerson, if not #1 outright. And RG3 is not afraid to throw.

Beyond that... I like DJax over Nicks right now, though that may change in another week or two depending on how Nicks looks over that time.

I have Andre Johnson in all three of my leagues. Awesome.

Don't play Doug Martin if you have better options. Good advice, bro.
