Lightning Watch: Week 8

Let’s get right into it.  Tons of player with quick summaries after the jump:

Reminder: Recommendations must be available (<20%) and ready to blow

Recap

Let’s see how a few players are doing that I suggested last week (or in previous weeks)

(That’s pretty convenient to make that point in this post.  Total yardage = 100, 50, 42, 34, 3 yds)

So why would they ever trade him?  ..Or rather dump him for almost nothing?

Backup Watch 6: Lightning

Let’s see if we can kick things up a notch here in the speed department.  Let’s play this thing fast and loose.  If you want more info about a player, team, or specific injury / dynamic situation, please ask in the comments below.  Otherwise, I’ll be supplying only a one or two-liner on this page.  I’ll dive into more detail upon request.
