Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 8: Early Doucet, Alfonso Smith, LaRod Stephens-Howling Worth A Look

The Arizona Cardinals don't have many great fantasy football options considering how inconsistent their offense looks from week to week. But there are a few potential offensive weapons that could be used this week if they're still available.

Early Doucet looks like the best wide receiving option if you really want an available Cardinals receiving target. He doesn't get many touchdowns, but he generally gets catches, which makes him a nice emergency receiver if you need him.

With Beanie Wells down, the Cardinals running backs could be a potential pickup. Of course, the big issue here is that neither Alfonso Smith or LaRod Stephens-Howling is really distinguishing themselves, and both end up shouldering a similar number of carries. You might need to monitor the progress of each tailback in practice before coming to a decision on utilizing either one as your starter.
