Week 8: Sit 'Em
Pittsburgh has given up the 23rd most fantasy points to wide outs to-date this season. Santana Moss has jumped into the primary role in Washington with the absence of Pierre Garcon, but I do not like the match-up this week. Pittsburgh has the ability to shutdown the passing game with their pass rush and downfield play. Just because Moss grabbed three passes for 67 yards and two scores against New York this past week and has now scored three TDs in his past three games, does not mean he is start-worthy in most leagues. Moss has not attained nore than 80 receiving yards in any single game this season and if you consider this in non-PPR formats without a score, he is not worth much. Do not get me wrong, Moss is the best weapon at receiver in Washington at the current time, but I do not think he is your answer. Look for 35 reception yards and no score this week.
Davis has now had two down weeks in a row, last week being a big goose egg on fantasy rosters. He has not scored a TD since Week 3 and and this week faces a tough Arizona defense. I have Davis on my roster and am looking for other options at this stage given his low production and the output of the San Francisco offense of late. Davis can be a fantays stud, but if defenses can hold him up and interfere with his abaility to get open and grab passes, he can be a fantasy liability. This week I am projecting 30-40 receiving yards, but no score once again.
Jacksonville has given up the 29th most fantasy points to TEs so far this season and Finley has not been in the mix since returning from his shoulder injury. Many projected Finley to be a top fantasy TE this season and he has proven to be a bust. If Finley can turn his game around he is worth a look, but these days he is bench-worthy. In his last outing he was only targeted twice. This week could very well be another low scoring affair for Finley and if I were you I would not take the chance.Injury Status: Injured Reserve
