Waiver Wire - Week 8

You can put in waiver wire claims based on positions you need or to hoard against your opponents. Most players listed below are owned in 60% or less of NFL.com leagues. Players are ranked according to how we recommend placing waiver wire claims to pick up players you will start this week. If there is a better available player in your league that is not listed here, it is likely because they are owned in more than 60% of NFL.com leagues.
