Fantasy Football Week 8 Waiver Wire: Redskins Injuries, Tebow Targets Raise Players Value

Week 8 is here, and there are plenty of injuries to deal with for fantasy purposes. Who might be benefiting from those issues?

Week 8 Bye Teams: Atlanta, Chicago, Green Bay, Oakland, New York Jets, Tampa Bay

Fantasy football rolls on into Week 8 of the season. With bye teams still in play and with injuries piling up, the waiver wire is as important as ever. There were plenty of injuries from Week 7, you can peruse the list here. Now we turn our attention to some potential candidates for your roster. Fake Teams, SB Nation's fantasy blog, has done the homework on the Week 8 waiver wire. Instead of a traditional listing of a few players, they've ranked the Top 200 players for the rest of the season. This lets you see who should be a factor the rest of the year, and helps you decide who you might drop to grab a player.

So check out their full list here.

Some highlights:

With Tim Hightower out for the season, Washington Redskins running backs move up in value. Ryan Torain had been a hot add over the last few weeks as he battled Hightower for carries. Now Roy Helu, the other backup, gains value and could see a lot more action.

Out in Denver, with Tim Tebow as the starter, Demaryius Thomas was one of his favorite targets. He scored a touchdown and Tebow looked his way a lot more than Kyle Orton did.

Beanie Wells has an injury out in Arizona that could hold him out for a few weeks. The guy who got a lot of carries in his place was Alfonso Smith.

Santana Moss will miss time out In Washington, so Jabar Gaffney's targets could go way up.

Christian Ponder had a good first start for the Vikings against the Packers defense and could be a possible player for fantasy rosters with sever quarterback issues. The guy who benefited the most from Ponder starting was wide receiver Mike Jenkins.
