We made it through another week without multiple serious injuries, other than Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Still, this could affect your fantasy teams and you’ll need some fantasy football waiver wire pickups to replace him or block an opponent from a key pickup.
If you’ve been here before, you know what I’m going to say: active fantasy managers win their leagues. With four teams on a bye this week (WAS, HOU, JAX, ARI), you’ll need to find some gems as waiver wire pickups to make an impact this week, especially those teams with the Murray-Hopkins stack.
With that being said, here are my top waiver wire pickups for Week 8 that have some value, given their matchup or injuries on their teams.
There are also some drop-worthy candidates that you can consider dropping at this point, but by no means are must-drop players.
Players must be owned in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues to be included in the fantasy football Week 8 waiver wire pickups column. All ownerships for waiver wire players will be provided and will reflect that of Monday evening.
