Fantasy Football Week 8: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em

The pressure is ramping up in fantasy football leagues.

Sure, if things have gone well this season and you're 6-1 or 5-2 after seven weeks, then there's some margin for error. But if you're 4-3 or 3-4, then there's not much leeway if you want to keep your postseason aspirations on track.

And if you're 2-5, one loss may be all it takes to erase any real chance of making the playoffs.

The later we get into the year, the more every week's game becomes a season unto itself, the more every roster spot becomes its own mini-matchup and the more every lineup decision becomes critical.
