If you made it to week 8 and are now in the Championship, congratulations! We're well on our way to taking home a year 1 championship over here at Fantasy Knuckleheads. As it stands my team is currently sitting at 5-2. Winning 5 straight behind Week 3's star pickup Pierson-El. All 3 of last weeks picks struck out, and week 8 isn't looking much better. I've spent this week digging in the trash so you wouldn't have to. I've managed to find 3 players who if you're really desperate may be able to help you out.
Brandon Radcliff- RB ATL
Last week, Radcliff had 7 carries and 3 targets that he turned into 3 catches and 26 yards. There really wasn't any production there but that's a lot of touches for someone still available on most waivers. If you're really in a pinch, this is your guy.
Daniel Williams- WR MEM
In week 7, Williams caught 5 passes on 9 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown. The week before he caught 7 passes on 11 targets for 70 yards. If he went overlooked on your waivers last week, make sure you snag him before the first week of your playoffs. This may be a true difference maker uncovered just in time. Next up he has the Apollos which has given up over 150 passing yards in both of the last 2 weeks.
Evan Rodriguez- TE SA
No one really wants to play tight ends in AAF Fantasy Football, let's be honest. They're abysmal. With that said, if you're badly in need of a flex, and Radcliff and, Williams are gone, Rodriguez is your best chance of success. Last week Rodriguez caught 3 passes on 3 targets for over 70 yards. Hopefully, he can build on that with a matchup against the Hotshots who just had a tight end of their own catch a touchdown. I really wouldn't go here unless you have to, but if you're in between a rock and a hard place look no further.
That wraps up everyone I can tell you to pick up and play with any confidence this week. I know it's slim but it should be more than anyone else in your league has found with how hard the waivers on altfantasysports.com to navigate. As always follow me on twitter @HessFootball for more AAF, NBA, and NFL fantasy advice and news. I hope to see you all back here next week for another round of AAF Fantasy playoffs. Good luck!
