1. Matt Forte - Chicago Bears: @ New England
The potential is there for Forte to run all over the Patriots defense.

2. Le'Veon Bell - Pittsburgh Steelers: vs Indianapolis
Bell is averaging 5.1 yards per carry this season and he'll get another 20 touches.

3. Arian Foster - Houston Texans: @ Tennessee
Produced 85 total yards and a TD last season on them in Week 2.

4. Marshawn Lynch - Seattle Seahawks: @ Carolina
Just 2.5 yards per carry against them last season but Panthers run defense is terrible in 2014.

5. DeMarco Murray - Dallas Cowboys: vs Washington
Best RB in fantasy facing the best defense against RB's in fantasy.

6. Ben Tate - Cleveland Browns: vs Oakland
Tate should bounce back against Oakland who can't stop the run.

7. Lamar Miller - Miami Dolphins: @ Jacksonville
Miller has scored in the last three games and he should do well against the Jaguars.

11. Jerick McKinnon - Minnesota Vikings: @ Tampa Bay
McKinnon rushed for over 100 yards against a very good Bills run defense last Sunday.

12. Ahmad Bradshaw - Indianapolis Colts: @ Pittsburgh
He's a receiving touchdown machine.

13. Joique Bell - Detroit Lions: @ Atlanta
Bell should come close to 20 total touches and the Falcons have allowed 5 more rushing scores than any other team.

14. Eddie Lacy - Green Bay Packers: @ New Orleans
Lacy hasn't been given over 17 carries in a game this season but a good match-up.

15. Darren McFadden - Oakland Raiders: @ Cleveland

Vereen registered 114 total yards and two receiving TD's last Thursday.

19. Branden Oliver - San Diego Chargers: @ Denver

20. Giovani Bernard - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Baltimore
Bernard produced 110 total yards in Week 1 against the Ravens.

21. Doug Martin - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs Minnesota
If Martin can't get going against the Vikings then he is pretty useless in fantasy.

Morris averaged 20 carries for 84.5 yards and a TD against a hapless Cowboys defense in 2013.

23. Mark Ingram - New Orleans Saints: vs Green Bay
The Packers struggle stopping the run and Ingram should get 15 carries.

24. Tre Mason - St. Louis Rams: @ Kansas City
Mason has likely taken over as the Rams starting RB but the Chiefs are tough.

25. Denard Robinson - Jacksonville Jaguars: vs Miami
Robinson recorded 22 carries for 127 yards and a TD last week.

26. Bishop Sankey - Tennessee Titans: vs Houston
Decent match-up and he's getting better.

27. Trent Richardson - Indianapolis Colts: @ Pittsburgh

28. Theo Riddick - Detroit Lions: @ Atlanta
RB Reggie Bush likely out and the Falcons allow the most fantasy points.

29. Bryce Brown - Buffalo Bills: @ New York Jets
I think Brown will be the main back in Buffalo over RB Anthony Dixon.

Oakland gives up the 2nd most fantasy points to RB's this season.

31. Chris Ivory - New York Jets: vs Buffalo
Buffalo gives up the 2nd fewest fantasy points to RB's.

Gray looks to have taken over Stevan Ridley's role for now.

6. Jeremy Maclin - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Arizona
Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson will be covering him but they give up the 5th most points.

7. Julio Jones - Atlanta Falcons: vs Detroit
Jones could do well but his QB will need some time in the pocket to get him the ball.

Indy gives up the fewest fantasy points to opposing WR's.

10. Sammy Watkins - Buffalo Bills: @ New York Jets
Watkins had 122 yards and 2 TD's last Sunday. The Jets are an easier match-up.

21. Vincent Jackson - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs Minnesota
A veteran facing a Vikings secondary that just got lit up by a rookie in Sammy Watkins.

35. Dwayne Bowe - Kansas City Chiefs: vs St. Louis
This season, the Rams have given up the 3rd most fantasy points to the WR position.

36. James Jones - Oakland Raiders: @ Cleveland

37. Cecil Shorts - Jacksonville Jaguars: vs Miami
Miami has a great secondary but at least Shorts will get targeted plenty.

The Packers give up the 13th fewest points to WR's. Cooks due to score soon.

39. Justin Hunter - Tennessee Titans: vs Houston
Hunter and rookie QB Zach Mettenberger were on the same page back in the preseason.

1. Greg Olsen - Carolina Panthers: vs Seattle
Olsen recorded a season high 105 yards last week and the Seahawks allow the most TD's to TE's.

Decent match-up and he's averaged 10 targets the last 3 weeks as QB Tom Brady has been great.

Gates scored four times in all of 2013. He has scored four times in the last three games.

5. Martellus Bennett - Chicago Bears: @ New England

6. Jordan Reed - Washington Redskins: @ Dallas
Decent game Sunday with 5 catches for 54 yards. Dallas allows 2nd most points.

7. Jimmy Graham - New Orleans Saints: vs Green Bay
Graham was obviously favoring his shoulder last Sunday and didn't catch anything.

8. Zach Ertz - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Arizona
Ertz had a TD in his last game and the Cardinals are still bad at covering TE's.

9. Dwayne Allen - Indianapolis Colts: @ Pittsburgh
Allen has scored in five of seven games and Pittsburgh is a favorable match-up.

Walker hauled in a season low two catches for 17 yards last week and Houston gives up 7th fewest points.

11. Jordan Cameron - Cleveland Browns: vs Oakland
Targeted 6 times but only caught one for 5 yards last week.

12. Travis Kelce - Kansas City Chiefs: vs St. Louis
Had his worst fantasy performance this past week but should bounce back against the Rams.

13. Jared Cook - St. Louis Rams: @ Kansas City
Cook is in the Top 10 among TE's in receiving yards (320) but just hasn't found the endzone.

14. Jason Witten - Dallas Cowboys: vs Washington
Witten totaled 40 yards receiving in the two games facing Washington last season.

15. Charles Clay - Miami Dolphins: @ Jacksonville
Jacksonville gives up the 6th most points and Clay produced a 4/58/1 stat line against Chicago.

17. Scott Chandler - Buffalo Bills: @ New York Jets

19. Jace Amaro - New York Jets: vs Buffalo
Amaro should see a good amount of targets and could score.

20. Crockett Gillmore - Baltimore Ravens: @ Cincinnati
TE Owen Daniels is out and the Bengals give up the most points to TE's.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 8 DST Rankings

1. Miami Dolphins: @ Jacksonville
The Dolphins defense is pretty good and the Jags offense is pretty bad.

2. Detroit Lions: @ Atlanta
Detroit will feast on Falcons QB Matt Ryan and his terrible offensive line.

3. Buffalo Bills: @ New York Jets
The Bills lead the NFL with 24 sacks which isn't good for Jets QB Geno Smith.

4. Kansas City Chiefs: vs St. Louis
Kansas City playing at home against a team that allows the 2nd most points to defenses.

5. Houston Texans: @ Tennessee
Houston forces turnovers and OLB Jadeveon Clowney could be back.

6. Dallas Cowboys: vs Washington
Whether its QB Robert Griffin or good ole QB Colt McCoy; the Cowboys should dominate.

7. New England Patriots: vs Chicago
The Patriots are banged up on defense but Bears QB Jay Cutler is still one of the best at blowing games.

8. Cleveland Browns: vs Oakland
Not a great match-up even though they are playing a rookie QB at home.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs Minnesota
Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has thrown for just 345 yards the past two games along with 5 INT's.

10. Minnesota Vikings: @ Tampa Bay
The Bucs offensive line isn't any good and neither are most of their offensive "weapons".

11. New York Jets: vs Buffalo
Jets defense at home facing QB Kyle Orton and some back-up RB's.

12. Indianapolis Colts: @ Pittsburgh
Indy just shut out the Bengals last Sunday and Big Ben gets sacked quite often.

13. Seattle Seahawks: @ Carolina
Seattle's defense has been a waste of a pick for many fantasy players.

14. Baltimore Ravens: @ Cincinnati
Baltimore's defense couldn't do anything in Week 1 against the Bengals but Cincy was just shut out.

15. Arizona Cardinals: vs Philadelphia
They only have 7 sacks this season but they should be pretty stout at home against the Eagles.

* I won't be ranking kickers. Just pick a kicker with a good offense or a kicker that is going against a terrible team.

Flacco was on fire last Sunday and could keep it going against a pour Falcons defense at home.

The Broncos allow the 11th most fantasy points to QB's. Could be a high scoring game.

12. Cam Newton - Carolina Panthers: @ Green Bay
The Packers allow the 3rd most rushing yards to QB's in 2014 and Newton rushed a career high 17 times last week.

Not an ideal match-up and Ryan has thrown 6 INT's to 5 TD's on the road this year.

14. Carson Palmer - Arizona Cardinals: @ Oakland

Dallas allows the 3rd fewest fantasy points to QB's in 2014.

11. Justin Forsett - Baltimore Ravens: vs Atlanta
The Falcons have allowed 4 more rushing TD's than any other team.

17. Ahmad Bradshaw - Indianapolis Colts: vs Cincinnati
Decent match-up and Bradshaw continues to get receiving TD's.

23. Jerick McKinnon - Minnesota Vikings: @ Buffalo

Smith only has 23 touches all season but is in the Top 10 in fantasy points among RB's.

Helu is 2nd among RB's in receiving yards (258) behind only Matt Forte.

39. Khiry Robinson - New Orleans Saints: @ Detroit
Robinson should get the majority of carries but RB Mark Ingram will also be eased back in.
