The eighth week of NFL games is in the books and the waiver wire is finally showing some fresh faces again. Several starting caliber waiver wire quarterbacks have emerged and the number of startable wide receivers on the waiver wire seems endless. Things are a little thin at running back ad tight end but given that there weren’t any major injuries this week that’s to be expected. As usual, a majority of the waiver wire adds we recommend this week are the same ones we recommended last week. Be sure to check your waivers for the “Carryovers from Last Week”. In a majority of cases those guys hold the most value. Stay tuned for the cut list we publish every week so you can get the scoop on which players to drop.
Quick Note: Not all players that had strong Week 8 outings are on this list, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t have value. If you have any questions about free agents not discussed in this article, head over to the forums and we’ll help you with the answers. If you are wondering who to cut to pick these one of these players up, stay tuned for our Week 9 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Cut List.
RUNNING BACKS—PICK THEM UP
Jonathan Stewart, RB, Carolina Panthers
Jonathan Stewart finally had his first chance of the year to be the Carolina Panthers’ true workhorse back. He didn’t look great with only 2.5 yards per carry but he got enough touches to make him valuable. Stewart ended with 21 touches for 80 yards against a stout Chicago Bears’ defense. The important news was that DeAngelo Williams had only 11 touches. If Stewart can get this many looks regularly he will be a valuable commodity from here on out.
Stewart doesn’t have the best matchup in Week 9 against the Washington Redskins but he should still make a fine play given how lethargic the rest of the offense looks. Stewart will again be involved on the ground and through the air so expect him to be featured again this week. He’s still out there in 31% of Fleaflicker leagues so grab him while you still have the chance!
