    Finding the perfect addition to your Fantasy basketball team via the waiver wire can be the difference between winning your league or going home with nothing. And before you determine which players you should target on the waiver wire this week, you absolutely need to see what SportsLine's NBA Fantasy expert Mike Barner has to say.

    Barner is one of the most respected voices in the industry, whose work has appeared in Sports Illustrated and on Yahoo, RotoWire and KFFL. He's also been featured on ESPN Radio. He digs deep into the data, examining team trends and projecting game outcomes. If there's anybody who knows what it takes to win a league, it's him.

    Now, he's revealed the best widely available free agents ahead of Week 8. One player Barner is advising Fantasy players to target on the Week 8 waiver wire: Hornets forward Miles Bridges, who is available in 50 percent of leagues. 

    "The Hornets aren't a very deep team, to begin with, but they are really hurting right now," Barner said. "Terry Rozier (ankle) has missed the last two games and now P.J. Washington (foot) is also sidelined. Bridges started and played 32 minutes with Washington out Wednesday, posting 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a block and two 3-pointers across 32 minutes. Washington's return date is still uncertain, so with the Hornets scheduled to play four times in Week 8, Bridges could be busy."

    Barner has also identified which other players you should target on waivers if you need a jolt for your squad, including a point guard available in well over 60 percent of leagues who has "plenty of playing time on the horizon." Anyone who adds this player could hit it BIG.

    So which players should you target on the Fantasy basketball waiver wire in Week 8? And which overlooked guard could lead your team to victory this week? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the best league-winning free agents, all from one of the most respected voices in the industry!
