Week 8 Injury Report

KeithyP's Favs of the Week
Fav QB Matchup - Chad Henne @ Bengals - The Dolphins run game has not been there this year and Davone Bess has finally matured into a solid WR.  The Bengals just got torched by Matt Ryan and Roddy White in week 7 and hopefully Henne and Marshall can do the same in week 8
24 of 37 for 217 Yards with 1 INT.

Fav RB Matchup - Frank Gore vs Broncos - Broncos gave up 59 points to the Oakland Raiders and 4 TDs to RB Darren McFadden.  With back to back 100 rushing yard performances, Gore has been producing, just not finding the endzone.  He shouldn't have any trouble this week.
29 Carries for 118 Yards with a TD.  1 Catch for 7 Yards (1 Target).

Fav WR Matchup - Steve Johnson @ Chiefs - The Bills are another team that was supposed to run run run but only seem to pass pass pass.  Ryan Fitzpatrick has looked good in the past weeks, and Steve Johnson has been targeted a team high 45 times with 5 TDs in the last 3 games.  He also had 8 catches for 158 yards against the Ravens last week
5 Catches for 37 Yards and a TD (10 Targets).

Fav TE Matchup - Jacob Tamme vs Texans - With Dallas Clark out for the season, the Colts will turn to Jacob Tamme.  Check this out from Walter Football on Jacob Tamme before he was drafted.
Jacob Tamme, Kentucky.
Only fits this three-star rating as an H-Back or in a scheme where he can play the slot. Perfect fit for the Colts and can be better than Dallas Clark.
Yeah Play Him.

Fav DEF Matchup - Dallas Cowboys vs Jaguars - The Cowboys know that the season is over.  But they have an reputation to live upto and they will take more chances on defense which will hopefully turn into more turnovers.  Expect some sacks this week.
35 Points Allowed, 1 Fumble Recovery, 3 Sacks.

KeithyP's Upset of the Week(3-4)
Seattle @ Oakland

LiLbRo's Favs of the Week 

Fav QB Matchup -Peyton Manning vs. Texans - Yea sure he is missing Clark and Collie this week, but he's still Peyton Manning and is going up against the Texans awful secondary.  No matter who he has to throw to he makes them so much better.  I expect a normal day from Peyton, which should be 250-300 yards with 3 TDs.

Fav RB Matchup - Felix Jones vs. Jaguars - Its panic time in Dallas now that Kitna will take over for Romo for about 8 weeks.  If the Cowboys want to start winning they will need to start running the ball effectively.  Jones has yet to break out this year and I expect it this week against the Jags.
8 Carries for 22 Yards.  3 Catches for 14 Yards (4 Targets).

Fav WR Matchup - Brandon Marshall @ Bengals - After seeing what Roddy White did to the Bengals secondary I cant imagine they'll be able to shut Marshall down.  He's bigger and stronger then White and that's a problem for the Bengals.
5 Catches for 64 Yards (7 Targets).

Fav TE Matchup - Dustin Keller vs. Packers - The Jets are showing lots of faith in Sanchez this year and its obvious Keller is his favorite target.  With the Packers inability to stop the run so far this year, the Jets might toy with them by mixing up the run with play action passes to Keller, and when they get to the goalline expect the ball to go Keller's way.
2 Catches for 45 Yards (6 Targets).

Fav DEF Matchup - Rams vs. Panthers - Not sure if what the Panthers did last week against the 49ers was forreal so for that reason I like the Rams defense to step up here. Panthers cant run the ball and Moore besides last week has looked awful.
10 Points Allowed, 3 INTs, 1 Fumble Recovery, 3 Sacks
