Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 16

Championship!?! There is precious little available on the Waiver Wire. However, it is incumbent upon us to do our due diligence.

Add these Players via Waiver Wire

Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

If you picked up Hurts for your playoff stretch run, then you’re probably still alive. The rookie QB put up 338 passing yards 63 rushing yards and 4 total touchdowns last week. He did this against a tough Cardinals defense and now gets his shot at a weaker Cowboys defense. If he continues to BALL Hurts can carry you to a championship win. Furthermore, he can take over as the starting quarterback for the Eagles in 2021.

Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys

An Ezekiel Elliott late scratch in Week 15 set the table for a career performance by 2nd year back Tony Pollard. Not only did Pollard gain 132 scrimmage yards, but his yardage total was higher than any single-game output from Elliott this season. Pollard is a plug and play RB2 this week; and can produce on the ground and though the air if Zeke sits again.

Jeff Wilson Jr., San Francisco 49ers

Another player just over 50% ownership. Wilson could have the backfield to himself in Week 16. Raheem Mostert was just placed on injured reserved which sets up a 20-touch opportunity for Wilson. There is some volatility attached though; if the 49ers gets behind big, head coach Kyle Shanahan may insert preferred passing down back, Jerrick McKinnon. Jeff Wilson is a high risk, high reward pick up.

Le’Veon Bell, Kansas City Chiefs

Le’Veon is above our typical 50% ownership threshold but it’s championship week; and if you’re in need of a starting running back, he can help your team in Week 16. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season. This opens up a 20-touch opportunity for Bell. Even with CEH healthy for most of the game, Bell still received a season high 15-carries in Week 15. Ride him during Championship Week against the Falcons in a potential shootout.

Tyron Johnson/Jalen Guyton, Los Angeles Chargers

If you are desperate for a wide receiver option, Johnson and Guyton are sleepers of the high risk/high reward variety. Guyton is the bigger risk of the two but he also has the higher ceiling.

Logan Thomas, Washington Football Team

Logan Thomas is the no-brainer pickup of the week hovering around 50% ownership. The targets were plentiful last week, having received 15 and converting them into 13 receptions for more than 100 yards. Thomas is a plug and play TE option for championship week.

Good luck on the championship run. You’re welcome from CPGM.
