Top Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups For Week 8

Minnesota Vikings v Detroit Lions

5. Theo Riddick RB Lions

The Lions went in another direction this week with firing offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, and that could spark a run game that hasn’t been very good in 2015.

Jim Bob Cooter takes over an offense that is putting up 127 yards per game on the ground, and that could rise with a new look and running back Theo Riddick getting more carries and chances catching passes.

Riddick had three catches vs the Vikings last week for 40 yards, and added eight yards on the ground on three carries.

Ameer Abdullah and Joique Bell are still ahead of Bell on the depth chart, but Riddick could be a solid sleeper with his out of the backfield pass catching abilities.
