This is the last waiver wore article of the year and I thank everyone for reading. If you are reading this congrats on making the finals. Your team probably does not need help but just in case an injury hit, I am listing a few good options for week 16.

QB

  • Washington QB Kirk Cousins: The Eagles' pass defense is awful making him a top 10 options this week

RB

  • Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams: He looks to be in a job share, but based on prior productivity he is the best option for the Bills
  • Carolina Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne: Fellow RB Jonathan Stewart is out again, and Artis-Payne did get 15 carries last week. .
  • Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael: He finally broke out a bit and should get a ton of touches in a potential blowout over the Rams
  • New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings: He has gotten 100 rushing yards in each of his last two games. Not a bad option this week.
  • New York Jets RB Bilal Powell: He has been a top 20 RB the past six weeks.
