Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 8

Washington Redskins v Indianapolis Colts

Mike James- The Tampa Bay running back should be an excellent pick up for a team in need of a RB2 or Flex. With new thats Doug Martin is injured, James should get the bulk of the carries. Also, considering that they have a rookie QB, the run game should be consistent, and don’t be surprised if James has one of the mot touches on the team.

Roy Helu Jr.- Helu looked great in Week 7, with his 41 yards and 3 touchdowns. With Alfred Morris struggling, expect big things from Helu. While he won’t have another 22 point game, or anything remotely similar, he should be a very solid pickup.

Marvin Jones- the Bengals’ WR has emerged as one of Andy Dalton’s favorite target, of course second to AJ Green. He’s had 128 yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks. With Giovani Bernard and Benjarvus Green-Ellis struggling, Dalton’s pass game will be even stronger. Marvin Jones is a great add to take the place of a Flex or WR3
