Waiver Wire Express - Week 16 Lightning Round

After injuries destroyed many a playoff hope in Week 14, we saw some heroes rise from the ashes to guide us through Week 15. Still, injuries to Dalvin Cook, Chris Godwin and others would keep the medical industry afloat as the season winds down. There's no shortage of waiver action heading into the traditional FF Championship Week! To take home the gold, here is the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 16.

This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis. Each day of the week will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions.

Waiver pickups are listed in priority order and broken down by position. Players must be owned in roughly less than 60% of Yahoo leagues and therefore will range from shallow options in standard leagues to deep options in PPR formats.
