Hey everyone, below are the top pickups for Week 8. If you have other names that you are seeing available in your waiver pool, comment below!
Week 8 Waiver Wire Grabs
Chris Polk/Alfred Blue (RB/HOU) – With Arian Foster out of the season (Achilles), these two will likely be this week’s top pickups. Who is going to start? Will either start? Will the team bring in someone else to muddy the situation? It’s tough to say. As of now, news wires all around suggest Polk is the clear lead here, but Blue has more talent if you ask me. Both are must-add players.
Orleans Darkwa (RB/NYG) – This kid looked good in 7, rushing eight times for 48 yards (6.0 YPC) and 1TD. He could see more carries moving forward and should be grabbed.
Danny Amendola (WR/NE) – He probably wont be consistent, but he had a nice Week 7 and looks healthy – for now.
David Cobb (RB/TEN) – He could return in Week 9, so monitor him on waivers if able.
Probably Not Available, But Check
Make sure all three of Jordan Reed, Charcandrick West and Stefon Diggs are not available in your league. All three are not likely available, but check, as all three are fantasy starters moving forward, not just good pickups.
