Waiver Wire Express - Week 17 Lightning Round

This column is published early every week, and then updated on a daily basis. Over the course of each week, we also publish more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions.

But in efforts of bringing you timely information, as fast as possible, consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 17.

Waiver pickups are in order of priority, broken down by each position. Players must be owned in roughly less than 65% of leagues, and range from shallow options in standard leagues, to deeper options in PPR leagues.

Editor's Note: Once you're done here, be sure to read about even more Week 17 waiver wire recommendations, for all fantasy-relevant positions. Just click on any link: ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF
