Sit Em

QB Nick Foles (PHI)

Nick Foles of 2014 hasn’t played like the Nick Foles of 2013. You know, the one that was a hot commodity it fantasy football?

More from Fantasy Football

During Foles’ last three games, he has scored fewer than 15 fantasy points in all of them.

To make things worse for the battered bird, in week 8 the Eagles head to the desert to take on the Arizona Cardinals, who’s defense has been tough on quarterbacks. Tough like only allowing only four touchdown passes in three home games.

Sit Foles in week 8.

RB Alfred Morris (WAS)

Alfred Morris has struggled greatly in 2014, something that many predicted heading in to 2014 due to the departure on both Mike and Kyle Shanahan during the offseason.

This season, Morris is averaging 3.8 yards per carry, with an average of only 2.2 yards after initial contact. Furthermore, the fine folks at Pro Football Focus have given the Redskins runner just one positive ranking all year, and that was in Week 1.
