Week 8 fantasy football advice: This is the week to start Larry Fitzgerald.

Have questions about who you should start or sit? Here is our advice.


Start: Colin Kaepernick

The Niners have unleashed Kaepernick as a runner and with a favorable matchup against the Jags I would wager he is in the Top 3 in scoring this weekend.

Sit: Tom Brady

The Miami Dolphins have a surprisingly strong secondary which should be able to limit Brady and the Patriots passing game.

Start: Fred Jackson

No CJ Spiller this weekend suggests an enhanced role for Jackson in the Bills offense, who are becoming a run-first team.

Sit: Maurice Jones-Drew

Combine a very tough matchup against the physical 49ers defense, the fact that MJD has not been productive all year and that the Jags will be behind a lot which means they'll pass more doesn't bode well for a good fantasy outing.

Start: Larry Fitzgerald

Atlanta have allowed 14 passing TDs so far this season and have one if the worst secondaries in the league. Hopefully Carson Palmer can capitalize on this matchup.

Sit: Dwayne Bowe

Carrying a groin injury going into a tough matchup against Joe Haden and the Browns defense doesn't suggest Bowe will ball out on Sunday.

Start: Jordan Reed

Becoming a more prominent part of the Redskins offense, Reed is RGIII's most reliable target and should score major points in a favorable matchup against the poor Broncos pass defense.

Sit: Jordan Cameron

Seeing decreased targets since Brian Hoyer went down, Cameron's value is falling. With Jason Campbell now quarterbacking the Browns, Cameron will be held to small production against the best defense in football, some might say.
