Random Thoughts from Week 8
*The football universe is a CRAZY place!
Who woulda thought: two Jones', two Benjamin's, JuJu, some guy named Malone, a Lockett, Chowder Crowder... ALL had more points than: AJ, Julio, M. Thomas, Antonio, Baldwin, Dez, Cooks
*Martivs Bryant doesn't have very good timing: 193-1, not his line, JuJu's!
*Raiders have completely fallen apart... Carr, QB14 this week and on the year: certainly not what you paid for... and if you started Cooper, only 48 yards, back to being WR50
*Please let me have the Texans coaching staff as my jury if I ever get in trouble... obviously they have no clue what is going on to start Tom Savage to begin the year over D. Watson
*Godspeed to Zach Miller... that injury looked horrific
*Your team needs one win to get into the playoffs, who do you want to play: SF, CLE, LAC, IND or NYG
*The greatness of Terrelle Pryor has gone the way of Washington's chances at the playoffs.
*Awesome stat (credit to Field Yates): Thielen only player to catch at least 5 passes in each game this year
*You might want to look for another line of work when you make Jay Cutler look like he is a better option than you (yes, I'm talkin' Matt Moore)
*Big breakout player: W. Snead... 1 reception, 8 yards on 3 targets- for the SEASON... Tommylee Lewis (great name by the way) has 84 yards on the year.
*Like I said Week 2, Andrew Luck will be shut down for the season... no announcement yet but it is coming soon
*Zeke is pretty good.... but will he finish the year on the bench?
*Raise your hand if you sat D. Watson or W. Fuller because of the "tough defensive matchup'?... (my hand raised high)
*Dez + Baldwin + Evans + AJ Green = P. Richardson
*McCaffrey a big disappointment... only RB32 with 7.00ppg
*Interesting terrible player: M. Gillislee... RD60 since Week 3
*Famous Jameis is getting really annoying... hard to sit him but he is so inconsistent a la Cam (QB15)
*14 of the Top 20 defensive players this week were either picked up late in the redraft or as free agents (or still available)
*Lacy + Rawls + McKissic = 5 rushing yards + 6 receiving yards = 1 point... run, and run fast, from SEA RB's

We are at the half-way fantasy point... here are some winners and losers this year
*QB: Biggest surprises: Watson (QB1) and A. Smith (QB3)
*QB: Biggest duds: Mariota (QB21) and M. Ryan (QB22)
*RB: Biggest surprises: Gurley (RB1), Hunt (RB2) and C. Thompson (RB7)
*RB: Biggest duds: D.Murray (RB23), Ajayi (RB28) and I. Crowell (RB50)
*WR: Biggest surprises: Fuller (WR4), Hogan (WR10) and N, Agholor (WR15)
*WR: Biggest duds: M. Thomas (WR19), A. Cooper (WR31), D. Thomas (WR50) and T. Pryor (WR60)
*TE: Biggest Surprises: really no big surprises
*TE: Biggest duds: J. Reed (TE32) and E. Ebron (TE41)
*DL: Biggest surprises: D. Lawrence (DL1) and T. Flowers (DL10)
*DL: Biggest duds: A. Donald (DL30), D.Hunter (DL43) and JJ Watt (DL100)
*LB: Biggest surprises: L. David (LB2), Vigil (LB7) and M. Jack (LB9)
*LB: Biggest duds: Ogletree (LB45) and S. Lee (LB47)
*DBacks: Biggest surprises: Byard (S2) and J. Poyer (CB1)
*DBacks: Biggest duds: L. Collins (S14)

My Power Four
Eagles... 7-1, going strong
Patriots... just keep winning but Hogan might miss time
Steelers... Where did this team come from?
Rams... bye week, still in my Top 4 but can they stay?

My Dreadful Four
Browns... commitment to losing
49ers... well, they try hard
Giants... at least they had a bye so they didn't lose again
Colts... they move into my Top 4... dead men walking
