Fantasy Football Update 10/25/16: Week 8 Sleeper Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 8
October 25, 2016
Week 7 in the NFL is officially all finished up, and that means it’s time once again to check out some of the notable waiver wire adds and sleeper prospects out there in the world of fantasy football. We’ve got a fresh crop of names for you to peruse, so let’s see which players are making waves.
Tennessee Titans Defense: The Titans defense is a matchup-based play these days, but they have come away with two double-digit performances this year.

Tennessee has just seven fantasy points combined over their last two weeks, but they do get a nice matchup against Jacksonville this Thursday. If you’re streaming defenses, the Titans are the one to get.
Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts: Doyle is still available in over 2/3 o the leagues out there, despite his 13.8-point performance in Week 7 and his 11.3 point outing in Week 6.
Doyle snagged nine of 10 targets against Tennessee, and was a key possession and red-zone receiver for the Colts. He’ll look to keep it going in a sketchy matchup against the Chiefs.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, Buffalo Bills: First, the bad news: Goodwin suffered a concussion in Week 7 against the Dolphins, and potential owners will have to monitor his health closely.
That said, Goodwin is also coming off 15.3 points against Miami, and through injury has managed to become the Bills’ No. 1 guy these days. He gets a permissible New England defense this weekend.
Devante Booker, RB, Denver Broncos: Here’s another guy who’s available in around 2/3 of the leagues out there. Booker is coming off a nice outing against Houston, rushing 17 times for 83 yards and a TD.
It looks like we’ve got a pretty even timeshare in Denver these days, which is bad news for CJ Anderson owners but good news for those looking at Booker. He’ll be up against the Chargers in a rivalry game this weekend.
Zach Zenner, RB, Detroit Lions: Those who tagged Zenner for a breakout in Week 7 were a bit disappointed, as he came up with just 8.9 fantasy points in standard leagues. He did get a touchdown, though, and wasn’t able to add any yards off catches.
Zenner’s value will be dependent on Theo Roddick and Dwayne Washington’s statuses this week, but if they remain out he’s a decent sneak play.
