Snickers Waiver Wire: Running Backs
(7:37)

Before you can figure out which running backs you’ll have to choose from in Week 8, you need to know which running backs won’t be available. The bye weeks are where you’ve gotta start, and we’re missing some big names, with Chase Edmonds (and Kenyan Drake, though he’s hurt), Antonio Gibson, James Robinson, and David Johnson all out in Week 8. That’s bad enough, but, of course, injuries remain an even bigger factor.

Nick Chubb, Austin Ekeler, Raheem Mostert are all still out with their injuries, while Chris Carson, Devonta Freeman, Phillip Lindsay, and Jeff Wilson all suffered injuries in Week 7 as well, putting their status for Week 8 in doubt. And then you’ve got guys like Christian McCaffrey, Aaron Jones, Joe Mixon, Miles Sanders, Dalvin Cook, and Mark Ingram, all of whom could potentially return in Week 8, but are very much questionable as of Wednesday. 

That’s 15 running backs who were drafted with the hopes of contributing to your Fantasy team, plus a few more who emerged as worthwhile options. So, yeah, it’s a bit of a mess. Filling out your lineup at running back isn’t going to be easy. Jamey Eisenberg’s Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em calls can help.
