Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 8 Pickups
The waiver wire begins to thin out as the season progresses. It’s no different as we look at the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 8 pickups.
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Wide Receiver Pickups
Ted Ginn Jr. – WR – New Orleans Saints
In the past two games, Ginn has hauled in 11 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown. The Saints play at home over the next two games and we all know how dangerous this offense can be. Willie Snead is still hurting which keeps the ceiling high for Ginn.
Kenny Stills – WR – Miami Dolphins
DeVante Parker is still out. Stills has positioned himself behind Landry as a solid No.2 receiver for the Dolphins with 10 catches, which includes three touchdowns during Parker’s absence. He has a tough matchup on Thursday night against the Ravens. However, he will benefit in future games with the continued absence of Parker.
Robert Woods – WR – Los Angeles Rams
Woods has at least five catches in four of five of his last games. The Rams take their bye week this weekend but don’t let him get taken by someone else in your league. The waiver wire thins out as each week goes by and Woods is a talented receiver worth having for depth.
Josh Doctson – WR – Wahington Redskins
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Running Back Pickups
Wendell Smallwood – RB – Philadelphia Eagles
Smallwood’s value comes in PPR scoring leagues. He has missed a couple of games due to injury but appears healthy and certainly has the upside to provide relief in flex positions if needed. LeGarrette Blount is the primary 1st-2nd down back but Smallwood’s versatility as a runner and receiver will certainly give him an opportunity in this explosive offense.
Alfred Morris/Darren McFadden – RB’s – Dallas Cowboys
Marlon Mack – RB – Indianapolis Colts
Alex Collins – RB – Baltimore Ravens
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Tight End Pickups
O.J. Howard – TE – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jack Doyle – TE – Indianapolis Colts
Tyler Kroft – TE – Cincinnati Bengals
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Quarterback Pickups
Andy Dalton – QB – Cincinnati Bengals
