NFL Week 8: Thursday Night Football Fantasy Guide

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Josh Collacchi takes a look at the fantasy football matchups on Thursday night between the Panthers and Bucs.

This Thursday night may be one for the ages, but not in a positive way. Thursday night games have been notorious for being overall bad football games. This week the Carolina Panthers take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in what does not promise a "barn-burner", but it does include some key fantasy football players. As we continue into the second half of the fantasy football season, each and every game is more and more important.

Here is a look at Thursday's Fantasy Football outlook:

Cam Newton 5 270 yards and 2 TD with 60 yards rushing 1 TD
Mike Glennon 2 240 yards and 1 TD with 2 INT
Deangelo Williams 3 70 yards and 3 catches for 30 yards
Mike James 2 55 yards and 3 catches for 20 yards
Steve Smith 4 6 catches 70 yards and 1 TD
