Start Em

QB Tony Romo (DAL)

Yes, that says Tony Romo. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback gets the call for fantasy football week 8, and it’s for good reason.

Over that past five games, Romo has been hot to say the least. Last week, against the New York Giants, Romo threw a season high eight touchdown passes and had only six incompletes to boot.  Additionally, in four of Romo’s last five games the Cowboys signal caller has thrown for 250-yards plus in four of those contests.

Making things even more promising is the fact that Romo and the Cowboys face the Washington Redskins in week 8. The Redskins pass defense has struggled greatly in 2014, putting Dez Bryant at the top of your Start Em list as well.

    RB Lamar Miller (MIA)

    It’s safe to say that Lamar Miller has exceeded his fantasy expectations in 2014. During the offseason, the Miami Dolphins brought in Knowshawn Mereno from the Denver Broncos, leaving many questioning what to expect out of the Dolphins backfield when the season started.

    However, after eight weeks of football the outcome is crystal clear, and Miller is the hot option for fantasy football week 8.

    Miller enters his match-up with the Jacksonville Jaguars riding a four-game streak that has resulted in double digit fantasy points. Furthermore, the Jags have given up an average of 20 plus fantasy points per game to opposing running backs in 2014.
