Welcome to Week 8 of the 2012 NFL season and the fifth week of byes. Four teams are off this week including Baltimore, Houston, Cincinnati, and Buffalo. Off the table are players like A.J. Green, Arian Foster, Stevie Johnson, and Ray Rice.
Here are our “Fantasy Football Start ‘Ems” for Week 8 of the 2012 season. As a reminder, everyone knows to start elite players like Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, and LeSean McCoy, so when we compile our list we make sure to focus on serviceable players that will benefit from a favorable matchup.
RUNNING BACKS – START ’EM
Rashad Jennings (Jacksonville Jaguars) at Green Bay Packers
Maurice Jones-Drew doesn’t have a Lisfranc injury to his foot, but he should be out long enough to make Jennings a worthwhile start the next few weeks. Expect a heavy workload for Jennings who is a dual threat even against the Packers who figure to be a tough matchup. Sometimes, fantasy football is about touches, which lead to opportunity and Jennings will carry the ball until the game gets out of hand, and then turn into a receiver when the Jags need to play catch up. Consider him an RB2 in all formats this week.
