ESPN: Miami Might Be For Real

10th place in DVOA coming into the week, the Dolphins may be a surprise playoff team. Ryan Tannehill has been acceptable, and the run defense has been phenomenal. However, they will have to deal with a tougher schedule in the second half.

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.

ESPN Upset Watch: Ravens over Texans

ESPN Upset Watch is on a four-game winning streak, but just like last week I don't think the line in this game in particularly wrong. This is less about why the Ravens will topple the Texans, and more about how the Ravens offense can attack the Texans defense in order to overcome the injury issues that the Ravens have on their own defense and outscore Houston. Cover watch looks at the double-digit line on the biggest game of the week, Jets-Patriots. And how do we know it's the biggest game of the week? 'CAUSE THAT'S WHERE I'M GONNA BE. (These last three sentences are copyright 2012 Sal Paolantonio.)
