Fantasy Football Week 8: Start’em / Sit’em

5 of 8

Eli Manning, @NO (60%, 20) – Has a good match up this week but has been struggling lately with less than 10 fantasy points two weeks in a row. I don’t trust Eli enough to play him until he puts together a few good games.

Matt Stafford, @KC (42%, 19) – Has a favorable match up vs a Chiefs D who has given up the 10th most fantasy points to QBs and Stafford has played better the last two weeks, but I can’t forget his stretch from week 3-5 when he put up three single digit fantasy lines in a row. Arrowhead stadium is a tough place to play and I could see Stafford getting rattled and reverting back to his early season form. I am starting him in one league, due to a lack of better option, but I don’t think Stafford will reach 20 points this week.

Colin Kaepernick, @STL (15%, 16) -Why is anyone still starting Kaepernick? Especially against the Rams fierce defense? I would start any other QB in the league over Kaepernick this week.
