Waiver wire

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire (Add/Drop) – Week 16

Ok folks I am going to switch it up a bit for the championship and give you players owned in less than 75% of leagues. If you made it this far you probably will start the guys that got you there, but just in case here is the waiver wire add/drops for Week 16.

(Add recommendations will include players owned in less than 75% of leagues)


Add – Joe Flacco Baltimore Ravens

Hopefully you don’t have to start Joe Flacco in your fantasy playoffs but if you are in a pinch he can be a viable option against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. Flacco have demonstrated some consistency as of late and has thrown for 8 touchdowns over his last 3 games. The emergence of Kenneth Dixon and a healthy bunch of receivers gives Flacco some nice options to spread the ball around.

Other Players who deserve an Add
  • Trevor Siemian Denver Broncos
  • Matt Barkley Chicago Bears

Drop – Blake Bortles Jacksonville Jaguars

Running Backs

Add – Bilal Powell New York Jets

Bilal Powell made me look good last week so there’s no reason not to go back to the well this week. Even with Matt Forte active, Powell rushed for 84 yards and caught 11 passes for an additional 78 yards. The J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets are not playing for anything down the stretch so it will be another week of Bryce Petty dumping the ball down to Powell. PPR league owners need to target Powell for championship week as he is a nice flex option that can easily give you RB2 production.

Other Players who deserve an Add
  • Ty Montgomery Green Bay Packers
  • Kenneth Farrow San Diego Chargers
  • Kenneth Dixon Baltimore Ravens
  • Adrian Peterson Minnesota Vikings

Drop – Devontae Booker Denver Broncos

Wide Receivers

Add – Malcolm Mitchell New England Patriots

With the no fly zone Denver Broncos defense behind him, Malcolm Mitchell will continue to soar this week against the laughable New York Jets secondary. Before last week’s dud Mitchell had caught 4 touchdowns in 4 games and will be a good bet to score another TD this week. Of course Julian Edelman will get the most targets but Mitchell will be a close second as Tom Brady loves to look Mitchell’s way, especially in the red zone.

Other Players who deserve an Add

  • Kenny Britt LA Rams
  • Tyler Lockett Seattle Seahawks
  • Dontrelle Inman San Diego Chargers
  • Pierre Garcon Washington Redskins
  • Adam Thielan Minnesota Vikings
  • Robby Anderson New York Jets
  • Chris Hogan New England Patriots
  • J.J. Nelson Arizona Cardinals
  • Marqise Lee Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Taylor Gabriel Atlanta Falcons

Drop – Terrelle Pryor Cleveland Browns

Tight Ends

Add – Eric Ebron Detroit Lions

With the ownership percentage going up to 75% and below, I finally can get a decent tight end for adds. Eric Ebron might not have scored a touchdown since Week 1 or has only averaged 35 yards and 4 catches in the last 3 weeks but I have a sneaky suspicion he will have a big game this week against the Dallas Cowboys. Although Ebron hasn’t blown it up this season he has received 18 targets over the last 3 weeks. The opportunity is there for the talented tight end to finish strong.

Drop – Coby Fleener New Orleans Saints
