Weather threatens to be more of a factor this week than in any other so far this season, so we're leading off there and will be tracking potential storms right up until Sunday's kickoffs in the Shark Bites section. Weather permitting, though, this could be an interesting week to play an unusually unpopular Tom Brady. He's far from the only option at QB, though, and the most obvious target might be a guy who has rebounded from a horrible start to the season. At RB, we've got some disagreement ... but also several favorites in the high price range. WR presents some interesting mid-priced guys, including a potential differentiator from the high-powered Eagles offense. TE comes with a loaded $4K range, which we'll sort through.

And now for the lineups in Week 8 of the Crown His Ass Challenge, after Jared gained on Kevin's lead last week ...


Jared (2.5 wins)


Kevin (3.5 wins)


Matt (1 win)
