NFL Week 8 Waiver Wire Targets (2021)

Miles Sanders

Not much this week on the Waiver Wire, although there are a few Running Back options that are probably worth a shot.  Running Back depth is getting increasingly difficult to manage, so using some FAAB for even a potential one-week victory is probably worth it as we get halfway through the season. There has been a lot of injuries and surprise inactives the last few weeks, so you may need to go hard at your waiver wire to keep pace with your league. Let’s take a look at some players worth adding this week. Boston Scott – Running Back – Philadelphia Eagles (1% owned) Boston Scott once again gets a shot at leading the Eagles’ backfield, thanks to a Miles Sanders injury that could hold him out a few weeks.  Scott will for sure share time with rookie Kenneth Gainwell, however it appears as though Scott will handle rushing duties and Gainwell will handle passing-down duties.  Scott rushed seven times for 24 yards and a touchdown on Sunday and caught a pass for five yards.   Philly gets an easy opponent next week in the Detroit Lions, so if Sanders does miss next week, Sanders is in line for a decent amount of work.  He may not be amazing, but many of you probably need a running back at this point and he seems to have the best opportunity out of all others on the waiver wire.
