Well my sleeper from a few weeks ago, Antonio Andrews, will be making a big impact today.
My sleeper for this week is Robert Turbin. If you know about him you know that he is the class of the Browns backfield. He is coming off an 8 week ankle injury & would still be a Seahawk if not for that injury.
Turbin may not be a good cash play but a GPP for sure. I expect Turbin to get 14-18 total touches. He can run, catch, & most importantly BLOCK. If you’re in a deep league you need to stash this guy & play him if you need bye help this week. In my LOR I’m contemplating sitting Hill for Turbin.
My extra super sleeper is Orleans Darkwa of the NY Giants. While I don’t expect big numbers I do think he will get the most touches in a game that will see lots of passing. As you can see below I like the matchup of ELI/OBJ a bunch.
Above are my two Cash LU’s for week 8. I pretty much split them 50/50. I do like the Manning/OBJ matchup a a ton though.
My only concern in this line-up is if the Chargers will be able to get any offense going against a Ravens Defense that matches up very well. Might be a game where Rivers has no time to row anything but screens & TE crossing routes.
Afternoon coming later.
