Here is your week 8 Friday Night Live Fantasy Focus breakdown:

Quarterbacks (select 1)

Jaden Procell, North DeSoto vs. Huntington: North DeSoto might be going back to running the ball more after posting 302 rushing yards last week and Huntington giving up 290 to Woodlawn.

Lucas Grubb, Captain Shreve vs. Southwood: Grubb has been slowed a tad the last couple weeks against good defenses but has managed to average 136 yards a game and thrown 10 touchdowns on the season.

Trent Franklin, Haynesville vs. Ringgold: Franklin has led the Golden Tornado to an undefeated season so far, don’t think that will change this week.

Running backs (select 2)

Bailey O’Byrne, Byrd vs. Green Oaks: O’Byrne and the Jacket run game is improving every week, Green Oaks has struggled with stopping the run.

Brian Fielding, Airline vs. Evangel: Fielding will be going against probably the best defense in the area other than the one he sees every day in practice.

Craig Davis, Huntington at North DeSoto: Davis had one of his best games of the year in a loss vs. Fair Park where he scored 3 touchdowns but the Griffin defense is a bit tougher than the Indians.

D’Andre James, Northwood vs. Minden: Leads the Falcons run game with 381 yards; Minden defense is one of the toughest to run against giving up just 84 yards a game.

Kolby Jackson, Minden at Northwood: Leads the Tide in rushing with 417 yards but has only 2 of Minden’s 21 touchdowns it has scored on the ground.

Lytravious Anderson, BTW vs. Loyola: Loyola’s defense gives up more rushing yards a game than it does through the air.

Receivers (select 2)

John Westmoreland, Benton at Woodlawn: The last really big game for the Tigers quarterback Garrett Hable threw for 315 yards but the Knights have one of the better pass defenses in the area.

Johnathan Jones, Parkway at Haughton: Jones is tied for second on the team with 3 touchdown catches but is fifth in receptions.

Josh Walker, Evangel at Airline: Walker has four catches for 75 yards the last three games.

Larry Moton, Woodlawn vs. Benton: Moton is one of the Knights three explosive threats that has four touchdowns the last two games.

Josh Lister, Haughton vs. Parkway: Lister is what the Buc offense is centered around and Haughton needs an upset win to get back on track.

Alex Antoon, St. Mary’s at Northwood-Lena: Lena is winless this season and is giving up close to 40 points a game on defense.

Teams: (select 1)

Benton at Woodlawn

Woodlawn vs. Benton

Benton (6-1, 3-1) tries to stay close to the top of the 1-4A race. Woodlawn (6-1, 4-0) looks to stayed tied with Minden in first place. The Knights have a lot of ways it can score points but their defense has quietly been one of the best in the area.

Fair Park at Bossier

Bossier vs. Fair Park

Both teams are 1-3 in 1-4A but Bossier has a 3-4 overall record compared to Fair Park’s 1-6. The Bearkats have have much more success than Fair Park in scoring points this season.
