The breakout fantasy star of Week 8? It's got to be Houston running back Ryan Moats, who took advantage of Steve Slaton's incurable case of fumble-itis to rescue the Texans in Buffalo. Moats' final line was shocking: 126 yards, three touchdowns. Not bad for a five year veteran with just one 100 yard day in his entire career.
So now everyone should rush to their computer and pick up Moats, right? Well, not exactly.
First, consider the opponent: the Bills are woeful at stopping the run. This week's enemy, the Colts, are just a tad bit better than Dick Jauron's bunch.
It's not like the Texans have committed to Moats, either. Coach Gary Kubiak seems set to deploy a running back carousel including Moats, Slaton, and local product Chris Brown.
All of this is to say don't expect Ryan Moats to score two more touchdowns again this week. With a bye week coming after the Colts game, Moats probably isn't worth your time.
