Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

By Michael Visconti December 20th, 2016

Welcome to Championship Week! If you are still in the running congratulations! Your team at this point should be solidified, but here are some streamers if you are desperate in the championship week.

Good luck and Merry Christmas to all! Please remember the bulk slate of the games are on Saturday due to the way that the holiday lands this week.


Here are the stream options for Week 16:

Joe Flacco @ PIT
Tyrod Taylor vs MIA
Colin Kaepernick @ LA
Trevor Semien @ KC

Running Backs

Justin Forsett DEN – Justin led the Denver backfield with 10 carries and 5 targets this Sunday. He is not really recommended in the championship week in a tough rematch in Arrowhead. I can see Forsett gaining 6-8 points in full PPR leagues, but he won’t get much done on the ground.

Ty Montgomery GB – Ty took advantage of his first opportunity as a “true” running back as anointed by Mike McCarthy earlier last week. I would expect him to have another solid week with Minnesota showing their true colors as of late.

Dwayne Washington DET – I can’t see Dwayne having a monster game in Dallas but he will get around 15 carries and a few targets.

Wide Receiver

Robby Anderson NYJ – Once again Robby and Petty show that they have a great connection and timing. After Petty took a monster hit which resulted in a nasty bruise, it’s tough to say if that will continue this week. One thing is for sure they will be throwing A LOT this weekend against the Patriots.

Dontrelle Inman SD – The only show in town is Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman with 9 and 8 targets. Inman has a great matchup this week against the Browns and I would feel comfortable with him as my WR3.

Tyler Lockett SEA – There he is. Right on time. Lockett had a great game while leading the Seahawks in targets with 9. He caught 7 of them for 130 yards and a TD.

Watch List – Michael Floyd NE

Tight End

Ryan Griffin HOU – With Fiedorowicz still out with a concussion Griffin is seeing more volume. He also sees targets from Tom Savage where they did a lot of team 2 work through the year. Check in later to see the status on Fiedorowicz and Osweiler, but this could be a great opportunity for a streamer TE.

Charles Clay BUF – Clay caught all of his 7 targets this week for 72 yards and a TD. We like the matchup this week at home in Buffalo versus Miami.
