Waiver Wire Rankings: Week 8
By Bob Miller
Week 7 was action packed. It was filled with players trades and more significant injuries, which will force some fantasy football managers into making waiver wire moves this week. Let's take a look at some key injuries:
NYJ: Breece Hall (torn ACL) out for remainder of season
SEA: DK Metcalf (knee) could miss Week 8
LAC: Mike Williams (ankle) to miss multiple weeks
DEN: Mike Boone (ankle) out for remainder of season
NYG: Daniel Bellinger (eye) to miss multiple weeks.
CLE: David Njoku (ankle) to miss 2-5 weeks
Now let's check my Week 8 Waiver Wire Rankings:
|7||Irv Smith Jr.||MIN||TE1|
Gus Edwards is number one on the list and should be owned across all formats. Spending a good chunk of your FAAB for the RB1 in a high powered run-first offense is a no-brainer. Other players that I'm targeting this week are Wan'Dale Robinson, D'Onta Foreman, and Parris Campbell. Good luck this week! I hope you get the players you need.
