Waiver Wire: Week 16
NOTE: Players mentioned will be owned in 40% or less of ESPN leagues. MUST ADD will be a recommended add in all leagues. MAYBE ADD is for those in 12 team leagues or deeper. DEEP ADD is for those in 14+ team leagues.
No QB worth adding that meets the 40% criteria going into this week, however if you are in a 2 QB league and need a streaming option, Joe Flacco is probably your best available option.
Peyton Barber (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – 15.7% OWNED – MAYBE ADD
It may be hard to trust him this Sunday against Carolina, but Barber is averaging 93 yards from scrimmage and 19 touches over the past 3 games. With there still being some uncertainty in the Tampa backfield, he’s still just a FLEX/RB3 option for those desperate at the position this week.
Wayne Gallman (New York Giants) – 6.1% OWNED – MAYBE ADD
Gallman is another desperation play for those in PPR formats this weekend, as the Giants continue to rotate 3 backs. Gallman has led the backfield in touches the past two weeks however, and is being used more than Shane Vereen in the passing game.
Dede Westbrook/Keelan Cole (Jacksonville Jaguars) – 30.8/1.2% OWNED – MUST ADD
With Marqise Lee out, Keelan Cole came from out of nowhere to produce a monster stat line on Sunday, making him a legitimate WR3/Flex option this week with the Jags soft match up against San Francisco. Westbrook is also in play as a WR3 with upside and is worth adding if he is still available in your league.
Mike Wallace (Baltimore Ravens) – 34.4.% OWNED – MUST ADD
Since the Ravens week 8 bye, Wallace has produced at least 9.9 points in PPR leagues each week, and he should see double digit points this week against the Colts with Jeremy Maclin sitting out once again.
Ben Watson (Baltimore Ravens) – 11.3% OWNED – DEEP ADD
Obviously it’s not an ideal situation if you have to play him in the fantasy championship, but Watson is probably the best available option in most leagues this week and has scored in 2 of his last 3 games.
