WEEK 8 WAIVER WIRE.....................

By Fantasy Boyz Editor in Chief Corey Bugenhagen

Another week in the books and more no names are popping up on our fantasy football radars.  Again as we have harped on for weeks now this is when fantasy championships are won.  You can't afford to punt on a week when you have a lot of guys on Bye.  You must be looking to improve your lineup at all times.  Below are some players that you would want to either add immediately or keep a close eye on.

Alfonso Smith -   With Beanie Wells hurt AGAIN the Cardinals will look to Smith to carry the lead back role.  He did score a TD last week.  RBs are at a premium this time of the year so getting a starting back even for just a few weeks is tough to do.  The unfortunate part is the Cards are playing the Ravens.  All hope is not lost though.  MJD was able to break 100 yards on Monday

Should be owned in larger leagues
Starting RB available in week 8?  Where do we sign up??

Dezmon Briscoe - Seems like every week we see a different Tampa wide out as a player to watch on the free agent front.  This week's addition is Briscoe.   He was targeted 10 times last week VS the bears and did come down with TD grab.  We don't recommend running out to grab him but certainly keep an eye on him.

Jason Hill - In what was an almost non existent passing attack Monday was a decent performance from Hill.  While he didn't get into the end zone he did get 62 yards on 4 grabs.  Hill seems to have some upside and if Gabbert progresses in the second half of the season we feel like he is a guy that could help your roster.

Michael Jenkins - Had 3 grabs for 111 yards and a TD.  Could have easily had 2 TDs but it was called back as officials said he was down at the 1.  Jenkins appears like he has the eye of Ponder and is definitely someone we would add to our roster.

Demaryius Thomas - The former first rounder caught a TD in his first action of the season.  With the trade of Brandon Lloyd we foresee Thomas getting more looks in the second half of the season.  With Tebow under center the Broncos are certainly not going to be passing the hell out of the ball but Thomas has talent and Tebow will look his way.

Harry Douglas - Had another decent game with a total of 57 yards.  While he didn't get into the end zone he has been a factor with Julio Jones out of the lineup.

Visanthe Shiancoe - Shank has been virtually a ghost with Mcnabb under center but with the rookie Christian Ponder under center he had one of his best games of the season capped off with a 2 yard TD catch.  We feel Shank is a good add to fantasy rosters as the rook will look his way often

Add in larger leagues
Ponder and his new left hand man.... ADD EM

Daniel Fells - Another Bronco that we feel will get more looks with Jesus Tebow under center.  Fells seems to be a favorite target of the young savior and that showed on the teams second TD drive Sunday.
