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.
TEAM DEFENSE—PICK THEM UP
San Diego Chargers DST
The San Diego Chargers defense hasn’t been outstanding this year but it has been good enough to play the matchup game. The Chargers have forced 10 turnovers and scored two touchdowns in the last five weeks. They’ve given up plenty of points but are great at forcing turnovers.
This week they play a Kansas City Chiefs’ offense that turned the ball over six times in their Week 4 matchup against the Chargers. The rematch should prove similar with the Chiefs having turned the ball over 10 more times in their three games since. The Chargers are available in 73% of FleaFlicker Leagues. Consider them a high end streaming option this week.
Consider Adding In: 10-team, 12-team and 14-team Leagues; especially as a spot play
Carryovers from Last Week: —NONE—
Team Defense Watch List: Dallas Cowboys DST, New York Giants DST, New England Patriots DST, Oakland Raiders DST
