Week Eight Hot Picks
If healthy I think Graham could have a big game for the Saints. If unable to go, I'd look for Lance Moore to have a big game for the Saints against the Broncos Sunday night. For the Broncos, I'd expect Manning, Thomas, Decker and McGahee to all have big games against New Orleans. The Saints rank 29th in points allowed (30.3 PPG allowed), 30th in passing yards allowed per game (304.5) and 31st in rushing yards allowed per game (161).
I have Chris Johnson as my number one RB this week. Yes, it is a bit of a surprise but I wanted to spice things up. Plus with MJD down I need him to have a monster week to help out my fantasy teams.
Historically the Colts have managed to contain CJ but this year the Colts have allowed 8 rushing touchdowns to Running Backs. They also allow 4.8 yards per carry, 5th worst in the league. After his 195 yard performance last week I think Johnson has the confidence he needs to run through a Colts defense that did not improve from last season.
