NFL Week 16 Waiver Wire Wonders

NFL Week 16 Waiver Wire Wonders
If you are still alive in Fantasy it means you have made it to your leagues Finals or Semi's. This week it is more important than ever to find that guy to fill in for your injured player or guy with a bad match-up. Lets take a look at a few of the player who can lead you to victory this week.  Good luck everyone!

QB - Sam Bradford  STL   vs. TB
Bradford is coming off a career day of 377yds and 3TD's. He is going up against a Tampa Bay team that is giving up a league most 27.3 fantasy points (320.8 yards and 2.75 total touchdowns) per game to opposing QB's. He has all his WR's back and healthy now. Expect another strong performance against the Bucs this week.
RB - DeAngelo Williams  CAR   vs.  OAK
Jonnathan Stewart will be out again this week which means Williams owners do not have to worry about splitting carries there.  The only problem is that Mike Tolbert, the same guy who poached TD's from Ryan Matthew/Darren Sproles owners in his time with the Chargers has emerged as a goal line guy. The good news:  Williams is averaging 120+ total yards and a TD over the past two games. He is a receiving threat out of the backfield and going up against a shaky Oakland defense.
RB - Danny Woodhead  NE   vs.  JAX
Woodhead took over the primary RB job for the majority of the SF game after Stevan Ridley (2) and Shane Vereen (1) coughed up the ball early and found themselves in Bill Belichick's dog house. The Pats should score early and often giving any offensive player who suits up and plays the ability to have a productive fantasy day. With the game likely to be in hand by halftime there will be plenty of garbage points for a back to grab in the second half. Woodhead seems to have Belichick's trust at the moment making him a good play.
WR Braylon Edwards  NYJ  vs.  SD
Greg McElroy has been named the starter for this one. With the season all but over the Jets, expect them to give McElroy a little freedom to evaluate him and see what he can do.  We was very efficient, albeit in a small sample size, going 5 for 7 for 29yds and a TD in his only appearance in a come back victory in week 13. Edwards is clearly his best option at WR and should get the bulk of the red-zone looks.  If you are thin at WR and need to take a flyer on a guy this week Edwards might be worth a look.
TE - Benjamin Watson  CLE  vs  DEN
TE's has lit up the Broncos defense this season. Anyone watching the game last week against the Ravens would have seen what Dennis Pita did to them. Browns QB Branden Weeden is starting to look a little more comfortable back there and is throwing with much better confidence. Expect Watson to get plenty of looks, particularly in the red-zone.
