Editor’s Note: Jump to the Week 16 Waivers segment on YouTube!

  • Main Waiver Wire Pickups
    • LAC Mike Williams (51% owned) vs BAL
    • LAC Tyrell Williams (33% owned) vs BAL
      • The Williams Brothers’ Week 16 potential is dependant on Keenan Allen’s health. If Keenan is out, there’s big upside for Mike Williams as we saw in Week 15. Tyrell had 12 targets himself in Week 15 as well.
    • BUF Robert Foster (14% owned) @NE
      • Hard to trust a wideout for Josh Allen and the Bills but Foster has 100+ receiving yards in two straight weeks.
    • NYJ Robby Anderson (27% owned) vs GB
      • Two big games in a row for Robby now. He took advantage of 11 targets in Week 15 with Quincy Enunwa sidelined.
    • CIN John Ross (9% owned) @CLE
      • Could be worth a desperation play if Tyler Boyd is out.
    • DEN DaeSean Hamilton (22% owned) @OAK
    • DEN Tim Patrick (3% owned) @OAK
      • Hamilton and Patrick are the ones getting targets (not Courtland Sutton) since Emmanuel Sanders went on IR.
  • Main Waiver Wire Pickups
    • KC Damien Williams (67% owned) @SEA
    • KC Darrel Williams (1% owned) @SEA
      • If Damien is surprisingly available in your league, he’s clearly the top add. He had a huge game for fantasy in Week 15 with Spencer Ware sidelined. Ware’s Week 16 status needs to be monitored though as he could return.
    • MIA Kalen Ballage (2% owned) vs JAX
      • When Frank Gore exited in Week 15, it was Kalen Ballage getting work, NOT Kenyan Drake. He rushed 12 times for 123 yards, with a big chunk of that on a 75-yard TD run.
    • GB Jamaal Williams (17% owned) @NYJ
      • Aaron Jones has been placed on IR. Williams will be the starter and RB touches can be hard to come by! The Packers did add Kapri Bibbs off waivers who could serve the pass-catching role.
    • NYJ Elijah McGuire (33% owned) vs GB
      • Crowell is on IR making McGuire the starter. As mentioned with Williams above, RB touches can be hard to come by.
    • PHI Wendell Smallwood (14% owned) vs HOU
    • PHI Darren Sproles (8% owned) vs HOU
      • Both Eagles backs are worth monitoring in case Josh Adams’ back injury causes him to miss time. He exited and returned twice in Week 15.
    • SF Jeff Wilson (60% owned) vs CHI
      • Matt Breida left Week 15 due to injury. Still, even with a full workload, it’s a nasty matchup for either player against the Bears in Week 16.
    • HOU Alfred Blue (8% owned) @PHI
    • HOU D’Onta Foreman (5% owned) @PHI
      • Lamar Miller dealt with an ankle injury in Week 15. Foreman hasn’t been active yet this year. It could be a messy mix of both Blue and Foreman.
    • LAR John Kelly (4% owned) @ARI
      • Todd Gurley is dealing with knee inflammation.
      • John Kelly needs to be added everywhere just in case Gurley were to miss. The Rams did sign C.J. Anderson as well, if that’s any indication of Gurley’s health.
    • Keith Ford  (0% owned) @NE
      • The Bills backfield is in shambles. Ford is worth a desperation add/play if McCoy, Ivory, and Marcus Murphy are all out.
