Week 8 Recap

Another hot week of waivers keeps us rolling.

The Bullseyes – Week 8

Michael Carter, RB, New York Jets

He finished RB1 on the week. Last chance to add him.

Week 8: 15 carries, 77 yards, 1 touchdown; 9/14 catches 95 yards; 32.20 Fantasy Points

Pat Freiermuth, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers

We told you to beat the waiver wire several weeks ago and, if you hadn’t then he was a priority pick-up for week 8.

Week 8: 4/7 catches, 44 yards, 1 touchdown; 14.40 Fantasy Points

He’ll continue to get better and has a great schedule for Tight Ends moving forward.

The Obvious

Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans Saints

Week 9 is when Michael Thomas has been touted for his return. Don’t expect WR elite talent of old. But in PPR leagues he has enough high upside.

Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins

We had Tua Tagovailoa as an obvious pick-up several weeks ago. A week of patience has hopefully paid off as week 9 has arrived. It’s the Texans. Go get him if he’s available.

Foster Moreau, TE, Las Vegas Raiders

If Darren Waller remains sidelined then Foster Moreau is who you want. We had him as a bold addition to rosters last week to beat the waiver wire in case, Darren Waller was to miss further time.

Other obvious candidates:

Taysom Hill, QB, New Orleans Saints

Scottie Phillips, RB, Houston Texans

Elijah Moore, WR, New York Jets

Rashod Bateman, WR, Baltimore Ravens

Van Jefferson, WR, Los Angelas Rams

The Bold

Carlos Hyde, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars

James Robinson left with an ankle injury. Carlos Hyde is the next man up. He is a bold addition to rosters as James Robinson’s injury looked minor and he may not miss time. Watch the injury report.

Other Bold candidates (Deep Rosters Only):

Mark Ingram, RB, New Orleans Saints

Jamal Agnew, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

The Stashes

Tyler Johnson, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tyler Johnson is a stash candidate because he steps into an offense with Tom Brady as the QB. If Antonio Brown were to miss further time with injury. Tyler Johnson steps into WR3 range.

Week 8: 5/6 catches, 65yards; 11.50 Fantasy Points

Other Stash candidates (Deep Rosters Only):

Jeff Wilson, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Nico Collins, WR, Houston Texans

The Traps

Braxton Berrios, WR, New York Jets

I am confident we had him named as a trap the first few weeks of the season. He now returns to the list. Don’t do it!

Other Traps candidates:

Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers

Geoff Swaim, TE, Tennessee TItans
