Waiver Wire Week 16: Top Pickups, Adds & Fantasy Rankings

If you are reading this, chances are you are one of the select few who made it to your fantasy football championship. If you made it this far, you know what you're doing. This week's waiver wire is different than it has been in previous weeks. Now, more than ever, it is about strategy not just the needs of your team. Unless your team suffered a late injury, your lineup is already set. The Week 16 waiver wire process is as much about playing keep away as it is improving your team. Look at the team you are playing against and grab the player that your opponent is most likely to go after unless your team has a glaring need. Most leagues even have a transaction history where you can look at what moves your opponent has been making. There are likely to be clues as to the position your opponent has been targeting. If you are in a critical needs position, there is talent available that you can plug into your lineup immediately. Good luck this week and bring home a championship.
