College Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Second Glance: Week 8

On Sunday, Joe Arpasi took a look at some possible waiver wire additions (click here).  After studying the stats from the weekend further, today we take a look at some more wire considerations, or guys to at least put on your radar moving forward.

Waiver Wire Grab Bag – Week 8 Second Glance



QUARTERBACKS

QB Chandler Harnish, Northern Illinois
Harnish has put up 24, 24, and 28 fantasy points over his past three starts.  More favorable match ups lie ahead in MAC play.

QB Ryan Aplin, Arkansas State
We've been pimping Aplin for most of the season as an under-the-radar fantasy option.  He lit up Indiana for 33 fantasy points.  He should be a able to have similar success vs. upcoming Florida Atlantic, Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky.

QB David Piland, Houston
Piland has thrown for nearly 600 yards and 5 scores in his first two games under center.  Nice matchups against SMU and Memphis are up next.




RUNNING BACKS

RB Stepfan Taylor, Stanford
Taylor was on a bye last week.  But in the two weeks prior, he rushed for 17-113-1 and 23-104-1 against Oregon and USC, respectively.  Washington State and Washington are up next, and both aren't playing particularly well defensively.

RB Leonard Mason, Colorado State
Mason has filled in nicely for injured starter Raymond Carter, posting 23-149-1 and 14-121-1 in his last two games.  He's not worth starting against Utah this week, but after that the schedules opens up a bit.

RB Robbie Rouse, Fresno State
Rouse finally had a big performance last week, rushing for 150 yards and 2 TDs against lowly New Mexico State.  San Jose State provides another tasty opportunity for Rouse to rip it up this week.




WIDE RECEIVERS

WR Jarrett Boykin, Virginia Tech
Boykin has scored a touchdown in five of his team's seven games, and faces a bad Duke passing defense next.

WR Lance Lewis, East Carolina
Lewis was a big waiver wire pick-up after his week one explosion, then went quiet for a while.  Well, in his last three weeks he has awakened to put up 9-68-1, 2-92-2, and 8-87-1.  Marshall is his next opponent.

WR Casey Robottom, Tulane
Robotton is probably only worth grabbing in the deepst of leagues, but he has posted 23 and 15 fantasy points over the past two weeks, posting a total statline of 15-169-2.

WR Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, Iowa
DJK has been red hot lately, posting 21, 23, 14, 27 fantasy points over the past month.  Some nice matchups remain on the schedule (Indiana, Northwestern, Minnesota).




TIGHT ENDS

TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame
With Kyle Rudolph done for the year, Eifert stepped up in his absence and posted a 4-72-1 statline
