Reggie Wayne to Miss a Game or Two

UPDATE: Reggie Wayne is officially ruled out for Week 8, Trent Richardson questionable

The Indianapolis Colts could be without future Hall of Fame WR Reggie Wayne for their next contests with the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants, before they head into a BYE week 10.  Wayne injured his elbow in the shutout win over the Cincinnati Bengals Week 7.  Andrew Luck has targeted Reggie Wayne 62 times (10th amongst WR) but his 38 receptions have led to just 434 yards and 1 TD. 

Those of you who own T.Y. Hilton better hope that his absence does not hurt Hilton's value.  Hakeem Nicks and rookie Donte Moncrief will battle for the extra playing time. They have combined for just 44 targets this season.

Week 8 Waiver Wire Options

Luck has done a great job spreading the ball around this season, so look for Dwayne Allen, Ahmad Bradshaw, Coby Fleener and even Trent Richardson so see some extra targets!

Victor Oladipo Out Indefinitely - Facial Fracture

The Orlando Magic will start the NBA season without Victor Oladipo, who suffered a facial fracture during Thursday's practice. Oladipo was entering his 2nd season and looking to build on a solid rookie campaign, a year in which he averaged nearly 14 points per game, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. The Magic will turn to Evan Fournier at the 2 guard to start the season, a player they acquired this summer in a deal with the Denver Nuggets that sent Arron Afflalo back to Denver. Veteran guards Luke Ridnour and Ben Gordon should see extended minutes during his absence as well.

We ranked Victor Oladipo 29th and Elfrid Payton 50th in our Top 50 Guards Rankings for Fantasy Basketball 

Orlando acquired the right to rookie PG Elfrid Payton during this years NBA draft, that sent the draft rights to Dario Saric and a 2017 1st round pick to the Philadelphia 76ers. Jameer Nelson was not extended, and was a free agent this summer, signing with the Dallas Mavericks. 

The Magic extended Nikola Vucevic on a 4 year $53 mil deal, and it will be up to him and Tobias Harris to lead the Magic in scoring, while Oladipo is out.

CBS Fantasy Basketball ADP Mock Draft

CBS Sports Fantasy Basketball ADP Mock DraftAverage Draft Position is important to remember when you enter your fantasy basketball drafts this month.  If you do you homework, you will know which players are being undervalued and who is being overvalued, as well as the same for certain positions.

*I made slight adjustments to the order so that each team filled in all its starters (PG, SG, G, SG, SF, PF, F, C, UTIL, UTIL) before adding bench players.

Round 1

This is the 3rd Mock we have done (Yahoo, ESPN), and each time Steph Curry has moved up 1 spot in the 1st round, this time up to the #2 slot!  Anthony Davis falls to the 6th pick, his lowest ADP.  

Round 2

Team 10 was the only team to go with back-to-back Centers (Cousins/Howard) and Team 9 was the lone PG/PG (Westbrook/Lillard).  4 teams started their drafts with a PG/PF combo. It is important to note that ESPN does not list players with multiple position eligibility.
