Fantasy football waiver wire Week 8: Which players to target – USA TODAY

  • October 26, 2022

Week 7 of the 2022 NFL season is over. And what a week of football it was!
If you play fantasy football, you’re already planning ahead with waivers after a busy week of games.
That’s what we’re here for, a roundup of some of the players you could be targeting ahead of Week 8.
Some of the names below might be taken already, but if not, there are a bunch of dudes who could change your fantasy fortunes this season. Let’s run through them, in no particular order:
Incredible rookie RB Breece Hall will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Ugh.
Carter was the next RB up, a possible RB2 in an improved Jets offense. But then the Jets went and traded for James Robinson. I’d still pick up Carter if he’s out there, but temper your expectations until we see how the workload gets split.
I saw him snatched up in a bunch of my leagues, but if not? It looks like he’s the RB1 in the run-heavy Ravens offense until J.K. Dobbins comes back.
I’ve been waiting for him to break out for … years? And we’ll see if his 10-catch, 70-yard-and-score day Sunday was the start of something, or if Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce are still the top two wideouts in Indy.
He’s legit! He gets yardage on the ground, and with Wan’Dale Robinson catching footballs and the Giants’ offense improving, he’s a weekly fantasy option.
OK, so Chubba Hubbard and he are probably in a timeshare. But what a week for Foreman! He had 118 yards on the ground in the shocking win over the Bucs.
If Amon-Ra St. Brown misses next week, maybe what we saw this week (75 yards through the air) is a thing.
There’s a buzz over the rookie running back who hasn’t played a single snap yet. That’s because Cam Akers is out, Darrell Henderson has been meh, and so maybe Williams does something when he returns from the injured list.
I’m intrigued by what I’ve seen so far from the rookie tight end.
