If you listened to last week's article and made a play for Julio Jones, congratulations. Jones had nine catches for 99 yards and a touchdown, and finally looked like the player that made him a consensus first round pick in #Fantasy this year. The other player who had success that was on the list last week was Russell Wilson, who passed for more than 300 yards and had three touchdown passes against the New York Giants. Who will be the best #Trade targets this week? Let's take a look at five fantasy players that should be targeted in trades in week 8.

1. RB C.J. Anderson

The Broncos offense has done absolutely nothing over the past two weeks, scoring a total of just 10 points in that time span.

That weak production has hurt Anderson, who has scored a combined six points in the past two weeks. Things are going to get better, and Anderson handles a majority of the workload, so now is the time to trade for him if you need a running back.

2. RB Joe Mixon

The cries from Bengals fans to get Joe Mixon the ball are getting louder after he ran for 48 yards on just seven carries. The Bengals inexplicably abandoned the run in the second half, and Mixon disappeared too. But the positive development is that Mixon is now definitely the lead dog in this offense, which makes him a real fantasy threat.

3. WR Demaryius Thomas

Thomas scored zero fantasy points last week, but he's about to have a resurgence against a Chiefs team that is allowing the highest number of fantasy points to opposing wide receiver.

Fantasy owners who are frustrated with Thomas will be willing to trade him. Take advantage and watch him rack up the points in the next two weeks against the Chiefs and Eagles.

4. TE Jordan Reed

The Washington Redskins tight end has been awful this year, and he's almost droppable in most leagues at this point. He's averaging just 2.8 fantasy points per game and hasn't been the same player that used to dominate fantasy a few years ago. Still, if he ever gets back to that form, he'll be a fantasy steal at his current cheap price.

5. WR Jordy Nelson

Brett Hundley was terrible in week 7, and the Packers receivers suffered as a result. Now their value has gone down significantly, but fantasy owners will overestimate just how much an impact the quarterback switch has. Nelson had a special chemistry with Rodgers, but he is still the top receiver on the Packers. Try to pick up Nelson via trade in the fire sale that fantasy owners will be having in week 8. #Fantasy Football
