Week 16 Kicker Streamers and Starts - 2018 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

For much of the season, we've seen kickers rarely used on field goal duty, but, in the last couple of weeks, we have seen a large amount of change in that area.

Week 16 Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

It's Championship week in most fantasy football leagues, and a rough week to be streaming quarterbacks at that.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: This recommendation is largely based upon the premise that LeSean McCoy might be unable to perform this week.

Ian Thomas (TE, CAR) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Greg Olsen has become the poster boy for podiatrists with all of his foot problems.

John Kelly (RB, LAR) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If you added Malcolm Brown as a late-season handcuff to Todd Gurley, you must now pivot to the rookie John Kelly.

Stevan Ridley (RB, PIT) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The guarantee of seeing carries on a top offense while facing one of the worst defenses in the league led some to add Pittsburgh Steelers running back Stevan Ridley in advance of Week 14.

Jordan Thomas (TE, HOU) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Houston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas can only be used in touchdown leagues at this juncture since he has not shown consistency with his reception and yardage numbers.
