Waiver Wire Week 8: Carlos Hyde, Sterling Shepard, Rashard Higgins

With Chris Carson likely to miss Week 8, Hyde is a decent fill-in

It is now Week 8, and some fantasy owners may be surprised the season has gone on this long. Others may think that it has flown by. Others may be looking at their rosters and feeling frustrated. It's been a tough season in terms of injuries, postponements, and coaches not telling anyone that they are going to "rest" a player in a week that fantasy owners started him (Jerick McKinnon, anyone?). It's always tough to be a fantasy owner, but the key is to accurately assess your roster.

Waiver Wire Week 7: Boston Scott, Henry Ruggs III, Dallas Goedert

With Miles Sanders and Zach Ertz injured, Scott becomes a waiver wire option for Week 7

In Week 6, all games were played as scheduled (or rescheduled in the case of a couple). However, that meant there was another rash of injuries that fantasy owners now need to deal with.

 

The Philadelphia Eagles are beat up on offense, losing Zach Ertz and Miles Sanders for at least one game, maybe more, in addition to everyone else who has missed time. Raheem Mostert is injured (again).

 

Waiver Wire Week 6: Chase Claypool, Alexander Mattison, Andy Dalton

With four touchdowns in one game, fantasy owners need to keep their eye on Claypool

Fantasy owners are likely having a hard time with the NFL season in 2020. For example, instead of the week getting wrapped up on Monday, there's still one game left to be played. The Buffalo-Tennessee game has been up in the air and everyone is hoping it happens on Tuesday night, but that's still in question.

 

Waiver Wire Week 5: Damien Harris, D'Ernest Johnson, Robert Tonyan

Fresh off the IR, Harris rushed for 100 yards on Monday night

The official bye weeks start in Week 5 with Detroit and Green Bay. While fantasy owners cannot account for any other games being moved because of COVID-19, they can at least plan to keep any Lions and Packers on their bench.

 

Waiver Wire Week 4: Nick Foles, Rex Burkhead, Justin Jefferson, Jimmy Graham

Foles has taken over as QB for the Chicago Bears and is worth adding in two-QB leagues

Thankfully for fantasy owners, Week 3 wasn't nearly as much of a bloodbath as Week 2. There were some injuries, as there will be, but two of the top running backs did not end up on injured reserve after this week, so it's a good week.

 

Waiver Wire Week 3: Mike Davis, Dion Lewis, N'Keal Harry, Justin Herbert

With injuries to key running backs, fantasy owners are going to have to turn to backups such as Mike Davis

As most fantasy owners know, Week 2 was brutal for injuries. If you managed to keep your team intact despite the carnage that occurred on Sunday afternoon, consider yourself lucky. However, for the rest of you, there may be large holes on your roster than need to be filled.

 

Waiver Wire Week 2: Nyheim Hines, Benny Snell, Malcolm Brown, Robby Anderson

With Marlon Mack out for the season, Hines should be a top waiver add

Week 1 is in the books, and fantasy football owners enjoyed a week of football, bad start/sit decisions, and injuries. It's time to look to the waiver wire as some players were injured and others may not be as promising as they were on draft day.

 

Waiver Wire Week 16: Mike Boone, Breshad Perriman, Greg Ward

Mike Evans and Chris Godwin owners may want to consider picking up Perriman to help them win a fantasy championship

Congratulations! Odds are fantasy owners reading this are the ones that won their playoff matchups thus far and are playing for a fantasy championship. Most fantasy owners aren't going to be looking at the waiver wire this week, as the guys that are out there are going to be tough to trust in the championship game.

 

Waiver Wire Week 9: Cam Newton, Derek Carr, Danny Amendola, Noah Fant

Newton won't return this week, but by next week it may be too late to pick him up

The fantasy football waiver wire for Week 9 has some interesting names. Four teams are on a bye this week leading up to six teams on a bye in Week 10. Fantasy owners should be looking at their teams and looking ahead to the next two weeks to see what they might need. The players on this list are some options, but at this point, filling out a roster is equally as important.

Waiver Wire Week 8: Jacoby Brissett, Ryan Tannehill, Chase Edmonds, Ty Johnson

Edmonds should be the top waiver priority if available in your league

Only two teams are on a bye in Week 8, so fantasy owners just have to deal with injuries (of which there are plenty) and players not performing. Injuries to Kerryon Johnson and Adam Thielen prompted two players to make an appearance in this week's waiver wire article. However, the No. 1 priority should be Chase Edmonds, if he is still available in your league (which is half of Yahoo leagues!).
