Here's a look at some players that should take priority if you're hoping to pick up some reinforcements from the waiver wire heading into Week 8.
Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens: He took the spotlight off Kenyan Drake with a 66-yard, 2TD performance. Drake had just five yards on 11 carries in the Ravens' win over the Browns. Edwards has had success in the past and looked good on his return from injury.
D’Onta Foreman, RB, Panthers: We gave you a heads up about claiming Foreman before Christian McCaffrey got traded. If you stayed ahead of the curve, it paid off. Foreman had 118 rushing yards Sunday and should continue to get a good share of carries.
Chuba Hubbard, RB, Panthers: He rushed nine times for 63 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game to tend to an ankle. With McCaffrey gone, both Foreman and Hubbard can contribute to fantasy squads.
Van Jefferson, WR, Rams: Fresh off the IR, Jefferson could help raise Matthew Stafford’s stock and fill the void Allen Robinson has struggled to occupy.
Cade Otton, TE, Buccaneers: The rookie is productive when he gets the opportunity. He caught four passes for 62 yards in the loss Sunday. Even if Cameron Brate is healthy, Otton may have a shot to keep it going.
Devin Duverney, WR, Ravens: The Ravens aren't lighting it up through the air, but Duverney has contributed weekly and often leads the team in receiving yardage, like he did Sunday albeit for just 42 yards.
Tyler Allgeier, RB, Falcons: He hasn’t had a breakout performance, but he’s rushed the ball at least 10 times in four straight games. Allgeier also scored his first touchdown Sunday.
Evan Engram, TE, Jaguars: He’s had at least four catches or 40 yards receiving in each of the last three weeks. Sunday he had four catches for 67 yards.
Tre’Quan Smith, WR, Saints: Three of his five games have been useful for fantasy, but he’s still available in a lot of leagues. He caught five passes for 59 yards in Week 7.
Allen Robinson, WR, Rams: In Week 6 he finished with five catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. He's coming off a bye so it’s possible he’s available.
Wan’Dale Robinson, WR, Giants: The rookie could be dealing with an injury, but he caught six passes for 50 yards Sunday and stands to be the best wideout target available for Daniel Jones. He’s definitely a stash candidate.
Parris Campbell, WR, Colts: Campbell is coming off back-to-back weeks in which he received double-digit targets and scored. His quarterback changes to Sam Ehlinger, however, so that may affect things.
