Cornerback Corner Week 8 is here!

Welcome to Johny The Greek's Cornerback Corner Week 8! Last week I made 60 recommendations. Of those 60, 9 were declared inactive or injured during play, 35 were correct (met or exceeded projection, Yahoo & MFL), and 16 were incorrect (below projection).

We don’t count acts of God here (injuries), and I specifically ask people to check for inactives before each game. So, discounting those, I was 68% correct last week and have a 74% accuracy rating for the season overall.

Of those 35 correct calls last week, 12 were “massive hits” (doubled, tripled or more projection). That is a 34% massive hit rate for the week. The season-long massive hit rates are available below.

Weekly Hit Rate

  1. 79% Accuracy/Massive Hit Rate 40%
  2. 79% Accuracy/Massive Hit Rate 25%
  3. 78% Accuracy/Massive Hit Rate 34%
  4. 68% Accuracy/Massive Hit Rate 34%
  5. 79% Accuracy/Massive Hit Rate 29%
  6. 69% Accuracy/Massive Hit Rate 32%
  7. 68% Accuracy/Massive Hit Rate 34%

Season accuracy to date: 74%

Season massive hit rate to date: 33%

***If you want information on how I make these picks, what the process is, and what information I'm looking at, you can go to last season's (or the season before) iteration of this article series (found on my author page). That information is laid out in the introduction to each article.***

Enough of the past. Let's look at the Cornerback Corner Week 8!

Perfect Stream: This is one of the best matchups this week. I will be streaming from these matchups in my own leagues almost exclusively. Poop stream: This is one of the worst matchups this week. I will very likely have zero corners from this matchup streaming anywhere. Half of a good matchup: This stream is a favorite of Thanos, only 50% of it is worth anything at all. Mediocre: You can probably find some value here, but it will very likely be deeper leagues only. The meme describes the matchup.

Closing Thoughts

Remember to check inactives before kickoff to avoid any surprise zeroes! The information here is usually only accurate up until Thursday evening each week, then it gets published, and I won’t be editing and updating with any injury news that occurs after that point. It’s your responsibility to track injuries for your own team. These are only suggestions. Your lineup is your responsibility and yours alone. Good luck this week!

We will have daily IDP articles, weekly waivers, sleepers, start/sit, and everything you could possibly need this season coming out daily all season long here at

Johny The Greek

Non-delusional Cowboys Fan. Been playing Fantasy since 2003, IDP since 2004 and watching football for 35 years. Being a firm believer in "you should know if the person you're taking advice from actually knows or wins anything" I'd like to present exhibit A: I have a diamond rating in Yahoo (976) with 29 plus titles in redraft/dynasty across Yahoo, Sleeper, Fantrax and MFL and an additional 57 plus 2nd/3rd place in redraft/dynasty, same platforms. I also play in and have won several all-IDP leagues. I started playing FanDuel with a free entry and have won almost a grand since. I've also won many leagues on the draft app (RIP Draft App, we miss you) and play the maximum number of free college fantasy leagues on Yahoo every year as well with 3 titles and 9 trophies in just two years of playing before Yahoo discontinued those leagues. My profile includes multiple titles in survivor and pick em leagues as well. I was a finalist in the 2021/22 IDP Guys Invitational and the best ball tournament. Also a MFL & Sleeper best ball & eliminator degenerate with many titles there as well. I just started playing All-22 this season and I would bet the mortgage I'll be good at that too. (Update, I did fine, 9-5 first season and made playoffs). What does all that mean? Nothing except when I do something I tend to overdo it. I have been at this for a long time though so I'll help you with your IDP roster and questions however I can whenever I can. I write a weekly streaming IDP corners article (Johny The Greek's Cornerbacks Corner) and whatever I feel like in the offseason. You can find me @OrangeMan3142 on Twitter. Feel free to reach out for any questions or just to talk some football. Check out my articles on Friday mornings all season long. And new this season and going forward stick around for "Johny The Greek's Free Real Estate" where I interview the best and brightest from FF Twitter, and by that I mean the interesting people who actually help you win and not the useless engagement farmers. I am not an "analyst" I'm just a crazy person/degenerate who has been doing this a long time, has been pretty good at it and is dialed in because I have to be to not sound like an idiot writing all these articles and doing all these shows. My style is straightforward & conversational, IDP isn't complicated and you're not trying to win an argument on Twitter you're trying to win your league. Come join me weekly in season for Johny the Greek's Cornerbacks Corner, where we look at the fine art that is streaming corners or finding ways to maximize your production from your CB slots each week. Also in season check out the IDP Pros Podcast on SGPN network. I hope you enjoyed the article. Let us praise our Messiah Babu Frik and give worship to Baby Yoda. Jimmy G would make a fine husband. Thanks for reading. -Johny the Greek-
