Greetings! I’m back with Barely Athletics’ top waiver signings for week 8. There are not as many players as in previous weeks but here are a few.
Sterling Shepherd (New York Giants) – after missing four weeks with a toe injury, Shepherd has emerged once again as the top receiver for the Giants. Shepherd has a capable QB that will throw him the ball giving him a mid-tier flex value.
Corey Davis (Tennessee Titans) – As long as he is healthy, I’m playing him. It seems that Davis does his best work when A.J. Brown is on the field and is attracting all the attention. Davis is an underrated player this season due to his performances in previous years.
Rashard Higgins (Cleveland Browns) – Higgins has already shown bits of value in certain games earlier this season. Now with Odell Beckham out for the season and Landry still dealing with a broken rib, Higgins has some great opportunity to make an impact on this team. The Browns are red hot right now and will continue to have a high scoring offense.
JaMycal Hasty (San Francisco 49ers) – Mostert, Coleman, and now Jeff Wilson are all out for the 49ers. Head Coach Kyle Shanahan said that he is limiting Mckinnon’s workload due to the heavy workload in previous games. Hasty is now the RB2 for this team and with them holding back Mckinnon, things can get a lot hastier.
La’Mical Perine (New York Jets) – yes, I know it’s a Jets player but hears me out. It is now a split workload with Frank Gore and Perine. Gore is not getting any younger and Perine (a rookie) has scored his first touchdown last week and looked much better than Gore. I would not be surprised to see Perine have many more carries for weeks to come.
Rodrigo Blankenship (Indianapolis Colts) – He the second-highest scoring kicker this year and will most likely be the highest after this game due to Miami’s bye week. with an offense that struggles in the RedZone, and perfect vision provided by his athletic glasses, this man will score points week in and week out.
