Dynasty Adds To Target On Waivers, Going Into Week 16
Congratulations to those dynasty owners who made it to the next round of their fantasy football playoffs. I have two remaining dynasty playoff teams, I won one game and lost the other. Below I’ll go over each offensive position; quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end, in dynasty, to help guide you to who should be added going into week 16. I’m going to use My Fantasy League for this article, but these suggestions should apply to other formats too. Let’s dive into the depleted waiver wire and who are the top dynasty adds.
Quarterback – N/A
Please check out my quarterbacks article to see if any of these players are still available for the remainder of the season or going into the off-season.
Running back – Mike Boone
(Season Stats: 21 carries 97 rushing yards 2 rushing touchdowns)
With starting running back Dalvin Cook re-injuring his shoulder Sunday, and Alexander Mattison (Ankle) also hurt, Mike Boone was the next man up. Boone took advantage, rushing 13 times for 56 yards and 2 touchdowns. I’m guessing that Cook won’t be available next week, against the Packers, and keep an eye on the progress of Mattison. If Boone is atop the depth chart for week 16, then he’s a plug and play RB1 for those owners still in the playoffs, due to their run first offense. If you’re a Cook owner, Boone is a must add. If you’re shallow at running back, Boone could be a nice depth add going into the off-season. If you need to drop him at the start of next season, no harm done.
Wide Receiver – Greg Ward
(Season Stats: 18 catches 140 receiving yards 1 touchdown)
With all of the injures to the Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers, Greg Ward started in week 15. He and quarterback Carson Wentz have seemed to develop a connection. Since week 12, Ward has seen 7 or more targets in 3 of 4 games. I think Ward has done enough to continue to be involved in the offense for the remainder of the season. He could also have a bigger role beyond this season. Ward is someone who should be added for those in need of wide receiver help or for those teams looking for wide receiver depth, going into the off-season.
Wide Receiver – Steven Sims
(Season Stats: 23 catches 165 receiving yards 1 touchdown, 6 rushes 82 yards 1 touchdown)
For those who missed last weeks waiver wire article, check out what I wrote on Washington Redskins wide receiver, Steven Sims. He had a solid week 15 performance.
Tight End – Blake Jarwin
(Season Stats: 30 catches 351 receiving yards 3 touchdowns)
I hope that most dynasty owners have already added Jarwin to their rosters, going into the off-season. I’m not sure why he’s still widely available….maybe i’m missing something here? Due to Witten’s age, Jarwin could be the tight end of the future in Dallas. Even with Witten, Jarwin has been involved in the offense, seeing snaps in every game this season. Outside of the top 3-5 tight ends this position has been a dart throw, so why not roster Jarwin into the off-season and see what happens?
Depending on the size of your dynasty leagues and roster sizes, these players may be deeper adds. Nonetheless, it is always important to stay one step ahead of your fellow owners on the waiver wire. The savvy dynasty owner is looking for opportunities along with current usage. Always remember to check your waiver wire(s) every week, even if you think there isn’t anything worth adding. Good luck in week 16!
