This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
It's time to hit the waiver wire hard. There's no shortage of potential adds in Week 8 – two players in the other suggestions list at the bottom (Jordan Clarkson and Dwyane Wade) would have been the top recommended adds just one week ago. With such a deep field of worthwhile candidates, managers should take stock of their team and make some moves – and in many cases, that will involve making a difficult drop.
Schedule-wise, it's another mostly-normal week. The Celtics and 76ers each only play two games, while eight teams play four times. With so few teams playing four games, the harm done by adding or starting a Celtic or 76er is minimized. It's still a downgrade, but not as much as it would be in most weeks. The eight teams to play four games are the Nets, Cavaliers, Nuggets, Pistons, Pelicans, Knicks, Spurs and Raptors.
The players below are listed in the order I'd recommend adding them.
As always, we'll focus on players available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. That said, here are some good players who might still be available in your league and are worth checking for:
- Collin Sexton, Cavaliers (61 percent rostered)
- Jonathan Isaac, Magic (60 percent rostered)
- Larry Nance, Cavaliers (65 percent rostered)
- Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Clippers (52 percent rostered)
- Marcus Morris, Celtics (59 percent rostered)
- Danny Green, Raptors (55 percent rostered)
- E'Twaun Moore, Pelicans
