If you are in need of some added firepower to win your week 16 matchup, or are looking for a last minute waiver-wire add, we have four players to target:
Mike Gillislee, RB New England Patriots:
Rex Burkhead is out and James White is not expected to play in this week’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Dion Lewis is still the starter, but Gillislee should see several goal-line carries against his former team, who have surrendered the most fantasy points to opposing backs this year.
Kapri Bibbs, RB Washington Redskins:
Like Gillislee, Bibbs is looking to step in for an injured starter against his former team, this time as Washington travels to Denver to take on the Broncos. Bibbs, called up from the practice squad in week 15, showed some flashes early on, gaining six yards on two carries with four catches for 47 yards and a TD. Denver is tough against opposing RBs, but Bibbs looks to be heavily involved whether or not Samaje Perine plays. Bibbs is an intriguing play in PPR leagues.
Eli Rogers, WR Pittsburgh Steelers:
With Antonio Brown out, Rogers looks to have an extended role this week against the Houston Texans, who are giving up the 3rd most fantasy points to wide receivers. Martavis Bryant will have the role on the outside, but expect Rogers to see plenty of snaps in the slot, where he corralled one of two targets for 18 yards and a score in week 15.
Tyrell Williams, WR Los Angeles Chargers:
Williams saw seven targets last week, and will seek a continued share of Philip Rivers’ passes this week in New York against the Jets. Tight End Hunter Henry is out, and Keenan Allen is dealing with a back injury. Williams, always capable of a big play, will face a secondary that is surrendering the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing receivers.
