    FANTASY STUDS OF THE WEEK- week 8 edition

    Disclaimer: this is something new I'd like to try out to contribute something, let me know if it sucks or not; point determinations are based on the fantasy league scoring methods that I mostly play with: passing- 1 pt per 25 yds, 4 pts per TD pass; rushing/receiving- 1 pt per 10 yds, 6 pts per TD, 1 pt per reception.

    FANTASY STUDS OF THE WEEK- week 8 edition

    This was definitely the week for the stud running backs to come out and play, as 6 RBs scored over 30 fantasy points, with 3 of them scoring more than 40!!!! We also had 3 QBs scoring in the 30 point range, including the top 2 involved shooting it out in the same game. Let's break it down:

    RBs

    6 studly contenders this week:
    Bjoern Mason (Arizona)- 190 yds rushing, 1 reception, 30 yds receiving, 3 TDs
    Reggie Bush (Philadelphia)- 248 yds rushing, 3 TDs
    Matt Forte (Chicago)- 22 yds rushing, 6 receptions, 83 yds receiving, 2 TDs
    Adrian Peterson (Minnesota)- 237 yds rushing, 4 receptions, 65 yds receiving, 1 TD
    Joey Keller (New Orleans)- 99 yds rushing, 2 receptions, 11 yds receiving, 3 TDs
    Michael Turner (Atlanta)- 120 yds rushing, 5 receptions, 16 yds receiving, 2 TDs

    WRs

    Dion Grimes (Chicago)- 5 receptions, 173 yds, 2 TDs
    Chris Chambers (San Diego)- 4 receptions, 125 yds, 1 TD
    Tiquan Underwood (Kansas City)- 3 receptions, 137 yds, 2 TDs
    Steve Smith (Jacksonville)- 4 receptions, 118 yds, 2 TDs

    TEs

    Dallas Clark (Indianapolis)- 6 receptions, 89 yds, 2 TDs
    Kellen Winslow (Arizona)- 4 receptions, 92 yds, 1 TD
    Ryen Garoppolo (Atlanta)- 5 receptions, 83 yds, 1 TD

    QBs

    Jay Cutler (Chicago)- 387 yds, 4 TDs
    Spencer McCallister (Indianapolis)- 454 yds, 5 TDs
    Drew Brees (Jacksonville)- 346 yds, 5 TDs, 1 INT


    FANTASY STUD OF THE WEEK

    REGGIE BUSH- RB- EAGLES

    Bush led all fantasy scorers this week with 42.8 points. Impressively, all of his points came from rushing, as he had a brilliant performance in week 8 against the Giants by gaining 248 yds rushing on 20 carries and 3 TDs to go with that.

    Ideal lineup- week 8

    QB- McCallister (Ind)
    RB- Bush (Phil)
    RB- Mason (Ariz)
    WR- Grimes (Chi)
    WR- Underwood (KC)
    TE- Clark (Ind)
    FLEX- Peterson (Min)

    haha very nice, this is a very VERY big reach but to build up anticipation for the upcoming 2010 Fantasy football season maybe a couple of us could have a sort of OMFL fantasy season just like reg fantasy football but using the OMFL stats and players!!!

    Because you demanded it:


    FANTASY SPOTLIGHT:

    BUFFALO BILLS

    Top stud:

    TE- Shawn Nelson: the Southern Miss tight end leads all Bills receivers with 33 catches for 403 yds and 2 TDs, including studly performances week 5 against the Jets with 5 catches for 60 yds and 1 TD and in week 2 against the Chiefs pulling in 6 catches for 114 yds and 1 TD.

    Power Trio:

    HB- Marshawn Lynch, WR- Terrell Owens, WR- Brandon Marshall: these 3 always have the potential to get stud numbers any given week, but not all 3 at once. It's a crapshoot, but the most reliable fantasy starter of the 3 would probably be Marshall, would is 2nd on the team in receiving with 23 catches for 393 yds and 1 TD, but no points for punting balls. Lynch and Owens would at least make good flex-spot options depending on either whether the Bills have a favorable matchup or you're desperate due to byes or injuries

    QB Watch:

    QB- Trent Edwards: while never considered a stud number, because of the great receivers he has to work with, Trent can definitely put up studesque numbers. I wouldn't be hesitant to start him in a pinch

    Dark Horse:

    WR- Roscoe Parrish: probably really shouldn't be called a dark horse, since he actually leads the team in TDs receiving with 3, along with 19 catches for 264 yds and 2 rushing TDs on 45 yds.
