With a ton of superstars on week 8 byes, the waiver wire will be the place to find a streamer! You may not find any superstar performances in these adds but for this week these guys are a fine option!
Latavius Murray- 73.6% owned- Coming off a fantastic week where he rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown, Murray should be a hot pickup for week 8. Although Jerick McKinnon should get half the carries, Murray will still be a reliable option if you’re in need of a spot starter RB.
Jalen Richard- 21.4% owned- With Marshawn Lynch suspended, Richard will be a much bigger part in the offense when traveling to Buffalo. Richard has averaged 7 fantasy points per game and will more than likely put up more with his playmaking abilities.
Jermaine Kearse- 56.3% owned- I said it once, and I’ll say it again. KEARSE PUTS UP NUMBERS. Understandably, fantasy owners tend to stay away from anybody associated with the Jets because of course, they’re the Jets. But owners need to get over this. Kearse is the 23rd ranked receiver this year and is averaging 12 fantasy points per game. He’s not only a must add, but he’s a MUST START.
JuJu Smith-Schuster– 19.9% owned- JuJu has shown he can play at the NFL level. I’d even go as far to say he’s one of the nicest surprises of the season. He’s worked his way up to Big Ben’s #2 receiver and with the Martavis Bryant drama, JuJu will continue to put up points, especially against the 22nd ranked Lions pass defense.
Hunter Henry– 77% owned- Hunter Henry has established himself as a solid starting tight end in the NFL. He’s averaged 9 fantasy points per game and has had at least 4 catches for 73 yards in his last two games. Against a terrible Patriots defense, Henry should continue to produce. If he’s not already owned, he should be a top target.
