Week 8 Wide Receiver Pickups
Every week on Bull Market Fantasy we highlight the players to grab off the waiver wire BEFORE they become trendy pickups. Staying ahead of your competition is crucial to a successful fantasy football season.
Without mentioning names, there are some fantasy pundits out there taking the easy way out when discussing viable options to target on the Waiver Wire. I was furious when checking out some of our competition and seeing the players they were including in their suggested pickups.
Telling fantasy managers to seek players that are already owned in over 70% of leagues is downright disrespectful. Who does that advice really help? Certainly not anyone serious about winning their fantasy football leagues. Would my job be a lot easier telling our fans and readers to pick up guys like Dede Westbrook who is only available in 30% of leagues? Damn right it would. But I'm not looking for the easy way out. I want to help you win. You take fantasy football seriously and that's why all of us at Bull Market Fantasy take our responsibility of providing you great insight and useful information very seriously.
I'm passionate about providing great advice for anyone that wants to learn, be better, and win. And some of the cookie cutter advice that's out there is so absurd that I feel bad for the people that consume it.
Ok enough of my rant.
Heading into Week 8 there's two teams on bye, Ravens and Cowboys. That means Marquise Brown, Willie Snead (doubt anyone is using him), Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb are all out of your lineups. Plus some injuries to receivers like Adam Thielen and Will Fuller along with questionable pass catchers like Christian Kirk, Sammy Watkins, and Sterling Shepard might be wreaking havoc on your lineups. But there's no reason to panic. The waiver wire will be your savior.
