Don't worry, I'm not going to recommend that you listen to the Run DMC cover of the classic Aerosmith song in your Adidas jump suit this weekend [Jay's Note: Awww, I'm already dressed up for it!], but I'm going to recommend that you start Raiders' running back, Darren McFadden.
It's disgusting to read, I get it. How many times have we bought into McFadden...

Calvin Johnson to be a Crack of Dawn Game-Decision for Week 8 – Just Lovely! You’re going to have to get up super early as in the crack of dawn, if you are on the West Coast if you have Detroit Lions’ wide receiver Calvin Johnson on your … The post Calvin Johnson to be a Crack of Dawn Game-Time Decision for Week 8 appeared first on Fantasy Football Chick.
Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (elbow) is out for Week 8's matchup against Pittsburgh.Fantasy Spin:Wayne has only posted fantasy-worthy numbers once this season and is more security blanket for Andrew Luck than fantasy asset. Donte Moncrief is likelt to see more of an increase than Hakeen Nicks.
Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision.Fantasy Spin:Fortunately for fantasy owners, game-time is 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning so if he doesn't play you have plenty of time to make your alternate plans. Golden Tate will continue to be a borderline WR1 for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons if Megatron sits.
Detroit running back Reggie Bush is not practicing again Friday, but claims he'll be ready for Sunday against Atlanta, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.Fantasy Spin:Bush has admitted that the ankle still isn't healed and is bothering him and after his invisible performance in Week 7 fantasy owners shouldn't expect anything against Atlanta in Week 8.
Bengals receiver A.J. Green didn't practice Friday and can't be considered anything but doubtful for Sunday.Fantasy Spin:Green's fantasy owners should have another plan in place because it's not looking good for him to start in Week 8. Mohamed Sanu owners get a reprieve.
Colts running back Trent Richardson should be downgraded to doubtful after missing Friday's practice and making it a clean sweep for the week.Fantasy Spin:Playing part-time behind Richardson, Ahmad Bradhaw is averaging almost 60 ypg and a touchdown. With Richardson out, Bradshaw becomes a very good fantasy option.
Arizona Cardinals Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald Calls Lack of Targets “Champagne Problems” When Arizona Cardinals’ wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was asked about his lack of targets, he had this response to share according to the teams’ official website (via NFL.com). I always keep it in perspective how fortunate and …

Watch: Peyton Manning Looks Like an Angry Bird Yelling at Fans Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning apparently wasn’t a fan of his fans last night. He looked like one of the “Angry Birds” flapping around the field while he yelled to his fans to shut the “F” up. Not very … The post Watch: Peyton Manning Looks Like an Angry Bird Yelling at Fans appeared first on...

The 2014 National Football League regular season is flying by, and as the seasons and weather begin to change so does the landscape of your fantasy football roster.
With players going down with injuries left and right (lost BOTH Buffalo Bills star runners this week) and Calvin Johnson still missing time among many other players...
Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas' expectations were so high heading into the Thursday night game against San Diego that his eight receptions for 105 yards almost feels like he let fantasy owners down.Fantasy Spin:After 521 yards and five touchdowns in the three previous weeks, his night was still a solid points producer and fantasy owners should continue be on him every week.
Just another solid performance from Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday night's 35-21 win over the Chargers.Fantasy Spin:Zero interceptions again for the third consecutive game. He could have easily had five touchdowns and 300 yards, but the team didn't need it. His average game of 304 passing yards and 3.14 touchdown passes has...
Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman rushed for 109 yards on 20 carries and caught three balls for 29 more yards.Fantasy Spin:Hillman also had a long touchdown run called back by a holding penalty and he appeared to be the fastest man on the field. Fantasy owners can't be happy, however, when Juwan Thompson vultured two short touchdown runs.
Broncos receiver Wes Welker's best contributions Thursday night didn't include catching the ball.Fantasy Spin:He blocked well on flanker screens and recovered an Emmanuel Sanders fumble late in the game. Welker is the fourth option these days behind the "Thomas Brothers" and Emmanuel Sanders, so his fantasy value is limited.
Chargers QB Philip Rivers was forced to throw more than he would like and ended up 30-of-41 for 252 yards, three scores and two interceptions.Fantasy Spin:It wasn't a great night, but it likely won't kill fantasy owners. Rivers is still producing top-five statistics at the quarterback position and one "off" night won't change that.
Broncos tight end Julius Thomas posted a second consecutive disappointing output, catching just two of six targets for 23 yards.Fantasy Spin:Thomas has been living off touchdown passes without many yards and over the past two games it's caught up with him. It's inevitable that Peyton Manning will start finding him again.
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates continues to be Philip Rivers' favorite target in the red zone.Fantasy Spin:Some things never change. Gates is adept at getting just enough room for Rivers to stuff it in there. Thursday night he scored twice from inside the 10-yard line.
Chargers receiver Keenan Allen led the team with 13 targets, catching nine for 73 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:With the Broncos great pass rush, short, quick passes were the strategy for the night which is why Allen finished the day with just an 8.1 yards-per-catch average.
