Including this week we have eight weeks left.I am ahead by 8 points right now and have a great chance of extending my lead by another 3 points possibly. I am quite sure I just jinxed myself and the wheels will fall off now ,but any way what is cosidered a comfortable lead?

Generally BA,WHIP and ERA won't flucuate TOO much this late, so just a guess, but a lead of .25 points or more would be fairly safe in my opinion. As far as the quantitative categories, I'd say leads in R,HR,RBI,SB,W,K and S would need to be about 40,25,40,20,15,60 and 20, respectively, to be in the "completely comfortable" stage. If you meet those standards, you could probably afford to sell off one of your top producers in that category to make up ground elsewhere. Still, it doesn't hurt to keep compiling them because you don't know when another team might be loading up in one category.
