Are you ready for Week 8 action in the NFL and your fantasy football team? It is about that time. Do you have anyone on on your team on the Arizona Cardinals or Cleveland Browns? Do you know whom your should start and whom you should put on your bench? Here is some advice, if you need it.

Who to start:

Chris Johnson, Cardinals: The Browns are last in the NFL against the run, allowing more than 100 yards more than the next worst team in the league. They allow more than five yards a carry. Johnson is second in the league in rushing. He also has been extremely elusive and has had a number of big runs already this season. He is a good play this week.

Carson Palmer, Cardinals: While the Browns aren't awful against the pass, Palmer has been a steady fantasy performer all season. He has thrown multiple touchdown passes in five of seven games this season.

Travis Coons, Browns: The Cardinals are not allowing a ton of touchdowns. If the Browns are going to score points, it is more likely to come from their kicker.

Who to sit:

Travis Benjamin, Browns: Patrick Peterson has been erasing receivers this season thus far. Expect nothing less this week.

Browns defense: The Cardinals have piled up yards and points in bunches this season. This isn't the offense to have going up against your fantasy defense. It won't get you many points.

Jermaine Gresham, Cardinals: The tight end simply isn't utilized enough to be a huge threat in fantasy leagues and Gresham will find ways to disappoint you, too.
