Earlier in the week we took a look at four week 8 fantasy Football trade targets. The extra article about trade targets last week suggested a trade for Matt Forte, who delivered a huge 25 point fantasy performance in week 7. In this article I am going to take a look at fivemore trade targets that fantasy owners should be looking to snag prior to week 8.

1. Michael Thomas.

The Saints wide receiver has scored double digit fantasy points in his last four games and is quickly becoming one of the favorite targets of Saints quarterback Drew Brees. He's also received nine targets or more in three of his last four games, a good sign for a player in a pass happy Saints offense.

Trade for him now before another fantasy owner realizes that Thomas is a decent every week flex play.

2. James White.

White's value as a fantasy player comes mostly from the passing game. But Tom Brady's checkdown option has huge value in both PPR and standard leagues, meaning that a touchdown in any day can allow White to have a big fantasy day. Owners desperate for a running back should be looking to trade for White, who has already proven that he has a very high fantasy floor.

3. Carson Palmer.

Arizona's starting quarterback is in a funk right now, but that should change immediately against a Carolina defense that has given up some huge performances to opposing fantasy quarterbacks this season.

His schedule for the rest of the season isn't too hard either, with upcoming matchups against the 49ers, Redskins, and Saints. Trade a player like Derek Carr for him now while you still can.

4. Odell Beckham.

The people who are panicking about Odell's fantasy value need to calm down. Don't forget that the star Giants receiver had a massive 32 point fantasy performance against the Ravens in week 6!

That potential alone makes a trade for the Giants beast absolutely worth it in week 8. Fantasy owners who need a receiver while Odell is on bye in week 8 will be even more receptive to the idea.

5. Ty Montgomery.

The Packers player is now considered both a running back and wide receiver, a key designation for fantasy owners who are looking for flexibility within their rosters.

Because he is a dual threat, Montgomery has an extremely high fantasy floor and should continue to have fantasy value for the rest of the season. If he's still on your waiver wire, pick him up. If not, try to trade for a player who could easily become an every week starter.
