Week 16 Waiver Wire Adds

smitty fantasy football writer smitty sleeperu
Hey, all. This week's waiver wire add list isn't super deep. If you have big names available in your smaller league, list your add/drop dilemmas below!

NOTE: Tony Pollard better not be available in your league, because he was a 'win-a-league' player I've been pumping up all season long. He can literally win you a league in Week 16 if he gets the start again in Week 16, as he can be 100/1TD-bound any single game he starts. If available, grab the man. Jeff Wilson could be huge in Week 16 as well, although he is gone in most leagues. He could get a lot of run in Week 16 with Raheem Mostert out. AGain, he is likely not available in most of your leagues, but I wanted to mention both Pollard and Wilson just in case.


Marcus Mariota (Raiders)

After his solid Week 15 outing, in place of injured Derek Carr, Mariota has a lot of people excited, and for good reason. He had 226/1TD in Week 15, with 88 yards and a TD on the ground. While it's hard to imagine anyone in a championship game needing to start Mariota, you never know. How Mariota finishes 2020 will determine if he is even a thing for 2021.

Running Backs

LeVeon Bell (Chiefs)

With CEH out the remainder of the 2020 fantasy season, Bell now becomes the starter in KC. Now, clearly KC either game scripts in the running game or game scripts it out. Meaning, the starter in KC currently is hit and miss each week and it's hard to predict. But, he is a must add and a solid flex play in Week 16.

Salvon Ahmed (Dolphins)

Only rostered in about 35% of all leagues, this guy can help out as a flex play in Week 16. No doubt. If Gaskin can get back in Week 16, that could surely hurt the value of Ahmed this week; however, if Ahmed is the guy, it's not crazy to think he can do some damage in this game. He had 122 and 1TD in Week 15.

Darrell Henderson (Rams)

The dude keeps getting overlooked, but with Cam Akers out at least Week 16, the team could lean back on Hendy, or they can use Brown as well, which would limited both player values.

More Adds: Lynn Bowden (MIA/RB), Ito Smith (ATL/RB), Russell Gage (ATL/WR), Rashard Higgins (CLE/WR), Mo Alie-Cox (IND/TE), Jordan Akins (HOU/TE)

      We can’t forget about Le’Veon Bell…

        True. I’ll add him, as he does appear to be available in more leagues than I thought. Thanks for nudging that topic, sometimes I assume certain players are more retained in most leagues than they really are.
