Top Players to Add in Week 16
If you’re reading this, you’re in the fantasy semifinals (unlike me). Congratulations, and I’m not at all jealous. Because you’re clearly the cream of the fantasy manager crop, I’ll keep this one short and sweet. You know what you need this week, and I’m simply here to provide a little extra push to what you already know in your heart.
Note: Zay Jones doesn’t qualify for this series, but he’s still available in far too many leagues. Check your waiver wire for Jones and plug him in as a WR2.
Besides Juwan Johnson above, Chigoziem Okonkwo (29% rostered) has emerged as a decent receiving option for Tennessee and has a decent matchup against the Texans in Week 16.
Ok, I’ll bite. Brock Purdy (21% rostered) has been more than serviceable for San Francisco, and he has enough weapons at his disposal to make him look good on the stat sheet.
The Los Angeles Rams (32% rostered) have remained a solid-enough defense from week to week, and the matchup against Denver should be a slog, even if Russell Wilson plays.
