Week 8 Waiver Wire Focus

Strip clubs are a waste of time, money, and blood flow. You know what’s also a horrible tease? A fantasy team with Reggie Wayne, Julio Jones, Randall Cobb, Jimmy Graham, and Doug Martin. You’re just less likely to catch any hump bumps.

Huge names, with huge injuries, with huge ramifications. This could mean church for your fantasy year.

However, when one door closes, two doors open. Opportunity has arrived, my friends. These waiver wire targets may salvage your season. You can recover from losing Arian Foster, but it gets a little tougher recovering from hump bumps.

Mike James, Tampa Bay
The Muscle Hamster is out for the rest of the year. James is now your waiver wire priority number 1. He ended Sunday with 17 touches and 53 total yards. He has a tough road ahead (SEA, CAR), but what else are you gonna do?

Roy Helu, Washington
2012 looks as though it was an outlier for Mike Shanahan’s backfield. Alfred Morris has given up close to a 50% time share with Helu, and Helu is getting the 3rd down and goal line work. Bad news for Morris owners, good news for people desperate for running back help off the waiver wire.

Terrance Williams, Dallas
If T-Willy is lingering on your waiver wire, then you need to make sure to join this league every year. Dez Bryant is receiving bracket and double coverage almost every play, and Williams has been the beneficiary. He has assumed the Miles Austin role and out produced his predecessor.

Jarrett Boykin, Green Bay
Even with James Jones returning, Boykin will still get all of Randall Cobb’s targets, which is more than enough to be a top 25 wide out going forward. Jermichael Finely is likely to miss an extended amount of time, meaning there will be even more targets to go around for the healthy receivers.

Jordan Reed, Washington
So, you lost Jermichael Finley? Reed is your best tight end option off the waiver wire. Robert Griffin III has shown a love for the tight end, and RG3 is looking healthier each week. As a vote of confidence in young Reed, the Redskins have expressed interest in shopping the veteran tight end Fred Davis.

Coby Fleener, Indianapolis
If Jordan Reed was plucked from the wire last week, as he should have been, Fleener is a nice target. He is going to be getting even more targets with Reggie Wayne missing the rest of the season. Fleener hasn’t been the most consistent tight end, but target should be increasing, and Luck has a special place in his heart for his college tight end.

Also, pay attention to what Houston does about their injured backfield. Arian Foster and Ben Tate went down on Sunday. Could be a massive work load for the next man in line.
