PPR Fantasy Football:
St. Louis Rams
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
New England Patriots
San Diego Chargers
Rams WR Chris Givens is a week 8 fantasy football sleeper.
Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of LestersLegends’ under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you in week eight.
Josh Freeman, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Freeman is averaging 374 yards and three touchdowns in his past two games. I don’t see him dropping anything like that on the Vikings, but I also don’t know how they are going to cover Vincent Jackson.
Danny Woodhead, RB, New England Patriots
The Rams are one of eleven teams to have allowed six or more rushing scores. Ridley is still the lead back, but Woodhead has been getting his share of touches lately. Over the past three games he has averaged 63.0 total yards.
Chris Givens, St. Louis Rams
I’m guessing the Rams are going to have to throw plenty against the Patriots. They struggle mightily against the pass, allowing 290.0 yards per game and 16 touchdowns. Givens is averaging 65.3 yards over the past four games.
Brandon Myers, Oakland Raiders
Myers has quietly become one of the most consistent tight ends in the league. He has four receptions or more in five of the Raiders’ six games. The Chiefs have allowed three tight end touchdowns.
San Diego Chargers Defense
The Chargers are coming off a bye and will likely play a little more conservative to cut down on the turnovers and not put the defense in a bind. The Browns aren’t a great offense and with Trent Richardson banged up, they are even less impressive.

St. Louis receiver Chris Givens has left the game against New England with a toe injury and his return is questionable.

As Americans, we're raised (or at least encouraged) to think a lot of funny things about Brits. They are stodgier than us and proper-er than us, and conversely, when they get silly (see Python, Monty), they are much sillier than us. But particularly when it comes to sport, they are quite different from us. Or so we're led to believe...

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola was known as a tough player even before he suffered a hit and dislocated his collar bone, an injury that could have claimed his life.
Now, just three weeks after that brutal injury, Amendola is trying to prove exactly how tough he is. The wide receiver is doing everything he can to come back and play this week when the Rams take on the...

Off to London they go, and with them they bring two teams owned by ridiculously rich guys who want to make more money by showcasing their team to the Brits and trying to sell some more jerseys.
In what has become an annual forgettable tradition similar to the Buffalo Bills making the trip to play in front of a half-full stadium in Toronto, this years game in London at...
New England Patriots (4-3) “at” St. Louis Rams (3-4) What’s wrong with the Patriots? That’s what people have been asking for 2 weeks. Last week, the answer to that question was nothing. Losing in Seattle to a tough Seahawks team is not an embarrassing loss or a huge upset as some were calling it. Green [...]
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Minnesota VikingsTampa Bay: The Buccaneers come off a heartbreaking loss to the New Orleans Saints, dropping them to 2-4. They led the Saints in the first half, but then Drew Brees brought his team storming back to take the lead. Josh Freeman showed some mettle, going toe to toe and punch for punch with Brees, only to essentially run out of time and real...
Minnesota's rebuilding project might eventually prove it needs more work. The Vikings, though, have clearly restored a critical piece of their foundation: the dome-field advantage.
They're 4-0 this year under the roof, where their fierce pass rush has been bothering opposing quarterbacks and Adrian Peterson has been powering his way through the other team's defense....
