Week fifteen of the 2023 NFL season is over and if you’ve made it this far, congratulations. You have done the hard part. You made the playoffs. If you didn’t make the playoffs, why are you even here reading? If you’d read earlier, you’d already have Kyren Williams and be in your playoffs. I am very disappointed in you. Some of you squeaked into your playoffs and others bulldozed their way in. At this point in the season, this is no longer about the waiver wire but fully based on match-ups. Figure out which of these guys has the best match-up in your league and get your guy. Here’s a list of guys you should be keeping an eye on. If I don’t mention someone whom you think I should be talking about, just know there are many reasons why I overlooked them. Maybe they are owned in most leagues. Maybe they are so bad I don’t even consider them. Maybe it’s because your opinions cannot be trusted. After all, you are here. So let us examine who our best week sixteen waiver wire players for your championship run are…
Week Sixteen Waiver Wire QBs
Baker Mayfield, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (46% rostered)
Baker has the best match-up for streaming next week if you need a quarterback. Jacksonville has given up the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.
Week Sixteen Waiver Wire RBs
Tyjae Spears, Tennessee Titans (33% rostered)
Spears is playing a defense in week 15 that is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to opposing running backs.
Tyler Allgeier, Atlanta Falcons (35% rostered)
Tyler Allgeier is playing a Colts team that gives up the 4th most fantasy points to opposing running backs and Allgeier is averaging over 10 touches a game over the last four weeks.
Ty Chandler, Minnesota Vikings (42% rostered)
Alexander Mattison has an ankle injury, so when he comes back is questionable. Chandler looked better in his start last week than Mattison has looked all season. He is definitely worth a look.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kansas City Chiefs (31% rostered)
Isaiah Pacheco is expected back this week, but if he is still hurt, CEH is the lead back in a high-powered Kansas City offense.
Jerick McKinnon, Kansas City Chiefs (35% rostered)
Isaiah Pacheco is expected back this week, but if he is still hurt, McKinnon gets a lot of usage in a Kansas City offense with no usable receivers.
Trey Sermon, Indianapolis Colts (0% rostered)
If Zack Moss doesn’t play, Trey Sermon is the starter in Indy against a tough Atlanta defense.
Zamir White, Las Vegas Raiders (10% rostered)
See if Josh Jacobs is expected to play. If Jacobs is out, White should see volume and is a decent floor play.
