Fantasy Football: The Extra Point Poll For Week 8

Moving on to Week 8 for this week's Extra Point poll!


The 6-0 @Atlanta_Falcons take on the @eagles in Philly. Coming off a bye week, Andy Reid is 13-0 as coach of PHI. Something has to give #NFC.

@SNFonNBC features two top quarterbacks (Manning, Brees) as @Denver_Broncos

look to join the #AFC elite & @Saints fight back into the playoff hunt.
The @Patriots and @STLouisRams head overseas to London, England as the NFL continues to bring the NFL into European homes.

Last week’s question involved the battle of top wide outs on Monday night: Calvin Johnson vs. Brandon Marshall. Similar to the overall scoreboard, it was Brandon Marshall and the Chicago Bears who came out on top. Marshall caught 6 passes for 81 yards and one touchdown. Thus far in 2012, Marshall, has caught 41 passes for 577 yards and four touchdowns, making him a solid fantasy contributor. Johnson, on the other hand, struggled against the tough Chicago Bears defense on Monday night catching just 3 passes for 34 yards and no touchdowns. The lofty draft pick that "Megatron" garnered in many fantasy drafts has not quite lived up to expectations as he has 38 receptions for 592 yards, but just one touchdown on the year.

In this week's edition of The Extra Point Poll presented by XFINITY, we feature two 3-3 Quarterbacks that will be trying to get their teams above .500 on Sunday: Ben Roethlisberger vs. Peyton Manning. Big Ben is 9th in Completion percentage, 10th in Passing yards, 5th in Passing Yards per game, 10th in Touchdown passes and 5th in QB Rating. Manning is 4th in Completion percentage, 7th in passing yards, 2nd in Passing Yards per game, T-4th in Touchdown passes and 2nd in QB Rating.

Which quarterback will throw for more passing yards in Week 8: Ben Roethlisberger or Peyton Manning? Vote now in the poll below. And remember to tweet me all week long @XFINITYSports as I give fantasy tips and keep you posted on the latest NFL developments via social media.
Good luck!
