In an effort to right the wrongs that were thrust upon the fantasy football world by the Blue team in week 7, we turned the decision making for week 8 over to President Lincoln. Honest Abe did not disappoint.

Our coin flip method yielded two great sit or start recommendations and a "meh". We could say that our lucky coin was 2.43 for 3 on sit or starts and 2 for 3 on the marquee match-ups. A great improvement over the dismal Blue team picks of week 7.

After last week's performance, it was clear that this was not any ordinary penny, and as such, deserved a proper send off. So, while we continue to brainstorm on ways to memorialize our friend, we wanted to give him one more chance at fantasy football glory. This week, we are pitting Lincoln against our in-house experts, The Specialists.
