Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

For any fantasy football player still alive in Week 16, this is the most important week of the year. It's Championship week! Maybe your roster is excellent from top to bottom at every position or maybe you hit a speed-bump in Week 15 and lost a key player like Dalvin Cook or Chris Godwin. Either way, the waiver wire still plays an integral role to you bringing home the trophy. 

The process for this week's waiver wire and roster management is a bit different than the rest of the season. For starters, you no longer need handcuffs-unless of course your stud got injured like Dalvin Cook. But since this is the last week, there's no need to stash anyone. 

There's two reasons to and two reasons only to grab someone off the waiver wire heading into Week 16:

1. You need a starter this week or contemplating using a player off waivers as a starter.

2. You need to block your opponent from getting a starter.

That's it. You're either picking up and potentially using the player or you don't want the player in your opponent's lineup. 

So who are the players we think you should pick up for your Fantasy Football Championship? Check out the video above for our full analysis on the following players:

Quarterbacks: None! At this point you already have your QB locked and loaded. There are no injuries or bye weeks and the only QB change is in Carolina where Will Grier is expected to start over Kyle Allen.

Running Backs: Mike Boone-Minnesota Vikings, Kerryon Johnson-Detroit Lions, Wes Hills-Detroit Lions, Boston Scott-Philadelphia Eagles

Wide Receiver: Breshad Perriman-Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Anthony Miller-Chicago Bears, Chris Conley-Jacksonville Jaguars, Greg Ward-Philadelphia Eagles, Justin Watson-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tight End: OJ Howard-Tampa Bay Buccaneers
