Fantasy Football Week 8 Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Maybe Jon Kitna Does Have Value

Week 8 of fantasy football is almost ready to be played, and we have your Friday Start 'Em Sit 'Em Top 10 consensus rankings.

Friday afternoon means only one thing and that's fantasy football Start 'Em Sit 'Em consensus picks. We won't waste your time on the obvious guys, but our friends at took a look around the web to see who the top not-so-obvious Start 'Em Sit 'Em guys are for Week 8. We present the Top 10 consensus picks in each category below.

He may not be Tony Romo, but the Internet experts are giving some love to Jon Kitna. He ranks as the number five "not-so-obvious" start this week. Yes, the Cowboys have an array of talent at the skill positions, but this really has more to do with Jacksonville's woeful defense. Kitna is a vet, he should know what to do.

In a return to action, the Lions Matthew Stafford ranks as the number two start. With Megatron at receiver, and a Washington secondary that will give up yards as the opponent, Stafford could have a productive return.

The convoluted QB situation in Tennessee has the experts soured on Kerry Collins and Vince Young. Is VY healthy enough to play, and to last a whole game? Will Kerry Collins be relegated to bench duty, or could he get the call at any moment? Looks like the best idea is to not take chance on either.  A couple of other quarterbacks, Matt Hasselbeck and David Garrard, also get the "sit" treatment this week.
