Week 7 was a disaster for fantasy football owners.
Wide receiver Reggie Wayne of the Indianapolis Colts and running back Doug Martin were both felled by serious injuries. Wayne's season is definitely over. Martin may well follow.
Adding to the headache for fantasy owners this week, a whopping six teams are on a bye.

These circumstances have combined to leave fantasy owners considering a lot of players who normally wouldn't sniff the starting lineup.
With that in mind, here are some below-the-radar fantasy options capable of saving the day in Week 8.
