Let’s take a look at the Week 8 fantasy studs and duds, and how they compared to the Playbook War Room’s predictions.
Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers: Playbook liked his chances of getting the ball out efficiently against the Patriots this week and he was able to do so. Pittsburgh committed to the pass as Big Ben threw the ball 50 times for 365 yards and two touchdowns.
Adrian Peterson, Vikings: The star back has been playing consistent football of late and the Playbook guys thought that would continue. Peterson gained 162 yards from scrimmage and scored twice. Hard to believe he had doubters earlier in the season.
49ers Defense: The War Room didn’t like the Browns chances of being successful on offense against San Francisco, and they weren’t. The 49ers picked off Colt McCoy, recovered a fumble, and allowed just 66 net rushing yards and only one touchdown.
Saints Offense: The Playbook guys understandably liked the New Orleans offense against winless St. Louis, after the Saints annihilated the Colts a week earlier. But we all know the NFL is full of surprises as Drew Brees threw two interceptions, no running back reached 25 yards rushing, and besides Lance Moore, the Saints receivers were relatively unproductive.
