Boom or bust PPR flex (RB/WR/TE) projections for Week 8

One really big change I forgot to mention in the wide receiver PPR discussion was the addition of Dwayne Bowe to the top-10.

Donnie Avery was ruled out and St. Louis is scraping the bottom of the roster for defensive backs. I also bumped up Alex Smith. He hasn’t thrown much to the receivers this season, but that could change this week in a big way.

Boom or bust PPR tight end projections for Week 8

This week we have seven running backs in the top-10 and no tight end. Julius Thomas tops the TE list and he comes in at 13th.

Individual Defensive Player (IDP) projections for Week 8

As always, these are the projections I’m least proud of. I like that the model can create them easily. I just wish I could monitor injuries and playing time situations a little more.
