Grading The 4 Most Confusing ESPN Fantasy Football Projections For Week 8: Greg Jennings, Jacquizz Rodgers, Kellen Clemens, And Joseph Randle

(Based on standard ESPN scoring)

Do you ever find yourself lamenting how weird the NFL is? Like, sometimes guys (most likely on your fantasy team) just forget to show up. Like, if it was baseball or basketball or hockey, people would be rioting in the streets if some of the stars had such bizarrely terrible games as they do in professional football. Weird.

Speaking of terrible, we split with ESPN last week.

- ESPN had Eddie Lacy going for 17 points, we thought that was high. He ended up with 16. We’ll give that to them. Spot on.
- Joe Flacco ended up with more than six points, like we assumed he would.
- Wes Welker didn’t get in the endzone for the first time this season (though he did rack up 90+ yards). ESPN had him going for 11, which we thought was low. It was. It just happened to be Peyton Manning’s worst game of the season.
- ESPN had C.J. Spiller going for 13. He ended up with 1. They won’t make that mistake again.

So our record on the season goes to 16-11. Not bad. We’re like the old drunk guy at the end of the bar, drinking alone: We give sound advice about 50% of the time. Here’s what we’ve got for Week 8…

  • Haywood Udume

    Why is Kellen Clemens listed as the NYJ QB? I’m pretty sure he’s starting for St. Louis this weekend.

  • Jake O’Donnell

    Once a Jet, always a Jet…

  • SteveGG

    Except Steven Jackson is back this week, so have fun with that

  • Jake O’Donnell

    News just broke that he practiced today. A) We didn’t know that when this was written, and B) It doesn’t necessarily mean he will play. Hamstring injuries are tricky.

    Changed the wording though.

    The Randle projection’s been changed to 0.

  • Mr. Chill

    Yeah we know he’s back, but he’s injury prone and Jaquizz will still get the passes out of the backfield is.

  • Ludakretz

    Eddie Lacy, Jacquizz Rodgers, Roy Helu, Steven Jackson, Joique Bell, which 3???
