Fantasy Football 2011: Musts, Trusts and Busts (Week 8)

0 of 3

    If you're anything like me, you've got some serious bye weeks to consider this week. The absence of Aaron Rodgers' laser arm and Matt Forte's dual threat play-making will most definitely have a negative impact on your starting line-ups. But this week's edition of Musts, Trusts and Busts has all the bye week fill-in answers at the three skill positions.

    Start the "Musts" and bench the "Busts." Week 8 is here, adhere to the MTB formula and win NOW.

    By the way, if you don't have Drew Brees, make the move to get him. Brees and the New Orleans Saints only play outdoors once in the remaining nine games.
