2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 8 WAIVER WIRE ADDS

Josh Docston:  The Washington Redskins have given up on the Terrell Pryor experiment at wide receiver and they are now fully deploying 2016 first-round pick Josh Docston in response.  While Docston caught just three balls Monday night, he has tremendous athleticism and the promise to be an impact player the rest of the season once he gets on the same page as QB Kirk Cousins.

Josh McCown:  Unbelievably, New York Jets QB Josh McCown is worth adding as the journeyman passer comes off a FOUR TD game Sunday (3 passing, 1 rushing.  While McCown throws a lot of picks, he also has 10 passing scores and over 1,500 yards.  He gets the always shaky Atlanta Falcons defense as well this week to possibly keep the fun going.

Case Keenum:  If you are in need of a streamable QB this week, the Minnesota Vikings' Case Keenum is a great bet since he will get to exploit the brutal Indianapolis Colts defense.

Marlon Mack:  Yes it seems like the Colts' Marlon Mack has been on this list all season but the loss of Robert Turbin for the year has opened up even more carries for the promising rookie.  With Frank Gore finally looking to be on fumes, Mack should be firmly added everywhere.

Dion Lewis:  Yes the New England Patriots' backfield as a crowded mess but Lewis has now emerged as the most potent fantasy football-scorer from the bunch.  Lewis is adept both at running and catching the football and so those in PPR needs to be especially aggressive here.

Jalen Richard:  With Marshawn Lynch earning a one-game suspension for Week 8, the diminutive but speedy Richard figures to be the main runner/receiver out of the backfield.  Again those in PPR should be especially interested.

Kenny Golladay:  Now that Golden Tate is out for a few weeks with injury, rookie Kenny Golladay should see a vast uptick in targets from QB Matthew Stafford.

Kenny Stills:  Clearly Miami Dolphins wideout Kenny Still has a nice rapport with QB Matt Moore after the two connected for two passing scores this past Sunday.  With Jay Cutler out weeks with a bunch of broken ribs, Still is worth a long look.

New Orleans Saints Defense:  With the New Orleans Saints defense getting the awful Chicago Bears offense this week, they are the easy call for being the top streaming unit.  Count on a turnover or two from rookie QB Mitch Trubisky helping the cause.
