10 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets Heading Into Week 8

Week 7 of the NFL season is just about in the books. With just one game remaining on the schedule, it's time to start thinking about your waiver wire in order to get a leg up on your competition.

By this time of the year, fantasy football players should have a good sense of their chances to make the playoffs. Your waiver wire decisions should start to reflect your odds of making the playoffs, too.

Are you undefeated and coasting to the playoffs? Then you can probably afford to use a bench spot on a high-upside stash from the waiver wire. Do you desperately need a win next week? Then odds are you can't waste time with bench stashes and need someone that can pay more immediate dividends to help you get there.

The point is, the waiver wire is going to look different to you than it is to your opponents based on your performances so far this season. Not every waiver wire target is useful to each player in your league, so you'll have to consider your options wisely. Fortunately, we're here to help you make the right decisions every step of the way, whether you're on top of your league or fighting for a playoff spot.
