In Week 16, fantasy owners are looking to put together the best possible lineup with the pieces that they have left of their roster. By this point of the season, many of the players originally drafted are no longer on fantasy rosters.

 

Whether it is because they are injured or just underperforming, fantasy owners should take a long look at the waiver wire to see if there is anyone out there that may lead their fantasy team to a championship.

 

Waiver Wire Week 15: Kenneth Dixon, Kenny Stills, Ian Thomas, Vernon Davis

The Week 15 waiver wire is filled with players that may help fantasy owners, but none are must-adds. By this point of the season, if you’re still playing, your roster should be stocked with players you are contemplating starting (or you don’t want your opponent to start against you).

 

Waiver Wire Week 14: Justin Jackson, Jaylen Samuels, Jeff Wilson Jr., Curtis Samuel

Samuels is James Conner's handcuff and should be owned in all formats

Fantasy owners playing in Week 14 are either in their fantasy playoffs (congrats!) or the last week of their fantasy season. At this point, don’t just take a chance on someone if it means dropping a better player from your roster. Pick up a player that will help you this week, because you don’t know if you’ll be playing in Week 15 (unless you have a bye for Week 14, of course). Another strategy is picking up a player that you may not start but you don’t want to play against.

 

Waiver Wire Week 13: Lamar Jackson, Adam Humphries, John Ross, Jonnu Smith

Week 12 was a tough week for some fantasy owners as injuries affected many players. Evan Engram injured his hamstring in pregame warm-ups and it wasn’t announced until after the game started, earning fantasy owners a zero. Melvin Gordon was active, but ended up injuring his knee (although fantasy owners should be satisfied with the points he gave them). Andy Dalton suffered a season-ending thumb injury. Jack Doyle suffered a season-ending kidney injury. Marvin Jones Jr.

It's Week 12 and for some fantasy owners, the season is rapidly coming to an end. It’s also Thanksgiving week and those owners that see that little asterisk next to their team name that indicates they are in the playoffs have plenty to be thankful for. For the rest, it's time to take a long, hard look at your roster and drop anyone that you aren’t going to play. It's crunch time and you need to start thinking ahead and see if there are any matchups you can exploit.

By Week 11, the waiver wire is pretty thin much to the chagrin of many fantasy owners. Some players are still getting injured (Cooper Kupp, torn ACL), and with injuries comes opportunity for other players. Fantasy owners also are nearly through the bye weeks. Six teams are on bye for Week 11, although not a lot of those teams have fantasy-relevant players.

 

Waiver Wire Week 10: Duke Johnson Jr., Mike Davis, Anthony Miller, Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Week 9, with six teams on bye, is finally behind fantasy owners. However, Week 10, with four teams on bye, looms ahead. While the injuries pile up and some players aren’t going to be available, fantasy owners need to be looking at the waiver wire.

 

Waiver Wire Week 9: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Peyton Barber, Christian Kirk, Jack Doyle

Week 9 has the potential to be a tough one for fantasy owners. Six teams are on bye (deep breaths), and that’s going to leave plenty of gaps in rosters. Fantasy owners should be sure to look at their team needs before heading to the wavier wire.

 

Waiver Wire Week 8: Baker Mayfield, Jalen Richard, Raheem Mostert, Vance McDonald

With Marshawn Lynch out, Richard becomes an interesting PPR option

Week 8 brings another week with four teams on bye. Fantasy owners are going to be scouring the waiver wire to find replacements for players on the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans. In addition, as with every week, injuries affect starting rosters.

 

Waiver Wire Week 7: Baker Mayfield, Taylor Gabriel, Chris Godwin, C.J. Uzomah

Godwin has four touchdowns in five games and should be owned in fantasy

As fantasy football owners enter Week 7, they may be looking to fill gaps in their lineup. Four teams (Green Bay, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle) are on bye in Week 7, which means plenty of owners are looking for players to start on their teams. Additionally, some key wide receiver injuries in Week 6 may impact some owners.
