The Geek's Week 8 Rankings!


We have already been faced with bye week dilemmas, but that's taken to a new level in Week 8 as we are faced with six teams taking a seat. If you are also facing a few injuries, that could make your roster decisions even more difficult.

Well, you can call me Superman, because I'm here to save the day! Ok, maybe that was Mighty Mouse, but regardless, here are my Week 8 rankings to help you with your tough decisions and help you earn a victory so you can rub it in your opponents face. I'm not a good winner...
