DFS Busts - Week 8

By Muntradamus

THE ALL MUNTRADAMUS BUST TEAM (WEEK 8)


AARON RODGERS @ DEN
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #5
ECR #12
Discount Double Bust takes on the best defense in the NFL. While Aaron Rodgers is Aaron Rodgers, the Packers offense is not the same without superstar Jordy Nelson. James Jones is doing a nice job picking up some of the slack, but his production and volume is not nearly the amount of Jordy which is forcing Randall Cobb to take on the entire offense by himself. This week Cobb goes up against Aqib Talib. When you add all that up plus a tough road game in Denver who will get to the QB before you finish reading this sentence. Aaron Rodgers is not going to be Aaron Rodgers like.


TODD GURLEY vs. SF
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #8
ECR #1
Last week in my analysis I was assuming Joe Haden and Tashaun Gipson were going to play, which is why I expected the Browns to put more energy in stopping the run game. The first half against Gurley went flawless, but then the floodgate opened which was all started with a gift TD thanks to a WR being tackled on the 1 inch line of a deep bomb pass. Gurley and the Rams should expect to be in a very low scoring game against the 49ers as these two teams always play eachother very well. #1 RB? Ok Gurley Hype train, your next stop is Week 8.


DANNY WOODHEAD @ BAL
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #31
ECR #16
Hi I'm Muntradamus and I have DirectTV.

Hi I'm a Fantasy Sheep Expert and I have cable.

Munt: I actually goto the Sportsbook and watch all the games. Even if it is a blowout, I will still watch. After the Football day is over, I re-watch all the NFL games on NFL Game Pass.

Sheep: I just analyze box scores.

Woodhead did absolutely nothing all game against the Oakland Raiders. It was not until the Chargers were down by 4 scores late in the 4th Quarter where Woodhead picked up two cheap garbage time TDs which made him a Fantasy Legend. For the second week in a row, the Chargers tried to win a game without running the Football. For the second week in a row, they lost.

If the Chargers are going to make the playoffs this season, they need Melvin Gordon to carry the load and make this team multi-dimensional. It also does not help Woodhead that Branden Oliver is now in the mix after a good enough game last week. Gordon is running at full strength, Woodhead can go back to the bench in non PPR leagues.


LARRY FITZGERALD @ CLE
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #28
ECR #10
The Weather/atmosphere in Cleveland is going to have the Arizona Passing game out of rhythm on Sunday. Larry Fitzgerald will go up against Joe Haden, and Carson Palmer will not have the Dome. Fitzgerald could see more targets if John Brown misses the game, but in the end Larry Fitzgerald will remind us of late 2014 Fitzgerald.


STEFON DIGGS @ CHI
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #36
ECR #21
If you have not traded Stefon Diggs for a Golden Tate or James Jones yet, you are just asking to lose all your value in 1 roll. Teddy Bridgewater did what I said he had to do to make Diggs successful last week. Throw for 300+ Yards.

Life is great in a Dome, now the Vikings go to the cold outside elements in Chicago. The weather is only going to get worse as the season goes on and the Vikings are going to rely on that running game and defense more and more. Diggs better get his stats early, because the Vikings will be running out the clock all 2nd half.


JAMES JONES @ DEN
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #34
ECR #27
Kills me to put him on this list, but this matchup is not a good one for James Jones. The Broncos Defense moves too fast for the Packers and Chris Harris Jr. is physical enough to body with James Jones who is becoming a Box-Out WR. While James Jones is FAR from done, this is a week that will remind you why the rest of your league slept on him when he was on the Waiver Wire.
