Week 8 Early Games Open Thread

Standing in the way of the Chiefs extending their perfect start to 8-0 at the midway point is a Browns team led by Jason Campbell playing on the road. Have a sneaky feeling they’re gonna be all right.

The Lions travel to Dallas for the most attractive game on paper in the early slate. Last weekend, we were treated to Megatron vs. A.J. Green on the same field. Today, the battle of receivers with elititude consists of Megatron and Dez Bryant. True to form, ESPN spent the week pretending like they have some sort of rivalry for the right to be called the bestest receiver going.


On the injury front: after laying waste to all comers the first five weeks of the season, Jimmy Graham appears due for a letdown period as per the reports indicate that he has a partially torn plantar fascia. That means, even in the slim likelihood that he does play today against the Bills it will be on a very limited basis.

In fact, it’s one of those fun injuries that actually needs to get worse before it gets better.

So if your fantasy team had been riding the Jimmy Graham train to dominance the first month-plus of the season, it’s high time you find production elsewhere in a hurry.

Elsewhere, it appears Danny Amendola and Reggie Bush are active and starting today’s games.

Your early game slate, as rated by KSK’s not-at-all subjective, rigorously scientificated five-star system:

Detroit at Dallas ***
San Francisco at Jacksonville *
Cleveland at Kansas City **
Miami at New England ***
Buffalo at New Orleans **
New York Giants at Philadelphia **
