Wide Receiver Waiver Wire - Week 16 Pickups and Adds

This is it, Championship week! Congratulations to those of you still playing. We had some breakout wide receiver performances this week, so if you lost Antonio Brown (like yours truly) or you need a flex start, we've got you covered.

If you are not exactly sure who you should add (or drop) from your teams, or have a question about your lineups, you can find me on twitter @ChrisMangano and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Let's get to it.

Week 16 Waiver Wire Wide Receivers

Mike Wallace (WR, BAL) - 40% owned (100% FAAB)

Wallace was a suggested add last week and he came through with six catches for 89 yards on 10 targets as Jeremy Maclin was out with a knee injury. It doesn't sound like Maclin will be ready to go this week either which means Wallace should once again dominate the team's targets. A great matchup with the Colts adds to the appeal.

Keelan Cole (WR, JAC) - 6% owned (100% FAAB)

Marqise Lee exited Sunday's game with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury, and it was Cole who led the team with nine targets, seven catches and a monstrous 186 yards. It was hard to watch for Dede Westbrook owners, and it appears Cole will operate as the number one should Lee miss again.

Kendall Wright (WR, CHI) - 4% owned (100% FAAB)

Wright has been on fire the last two weeks, seeing 24 targets and recording 17 catches for 188 yards and 35.8 PPR points over that stretch. He has emerged as Mitch Trubisky's number one option and is a solid add in PPR formats.

Tyrell Williams (WR, LAC) - 38% owned (100% FAAB)

Williams' stat line wasn't great, just three catches for 31 yards, but he now has 11 targets over the last two games, second only to Keenan Allen on the team. Hunter Henry is dealing with a lacerated kidney which could keep him out in Week 16. If that happens more targets should funnel Williams' way. He's by no means a must add, but if you're desperate you could do worse.

Geronimo Allison (WR, GB) - 1% owned (100% FAAB)

After Davante Adams left with a concussion, Allison filled in and saw eight targets, second only to Randall Cobb. There is risk with Allison, namely that Adams could clear concussion protocol which would all but crush his value. There is also talk the Packers may sit Rodgers now that they are eliminated from the playoffs. If Adams does sit, and Rodgers does play, Allison could have big value in a game where Jordy Nelson would likely be shadowed by Xavier Rhodes. He's worth a flier add.

Jaydon Mickens (WR, JAC) - 0% owned (100% FAAB)

Mickens benefited from Marqise Lee being out, but he is a riskier add than Cole. First, he only saw five targets. Second, he caught four passes two of which were touchdowns. He'll be involved if Lee is out again but we'd prefer Cole if possible.


Time To Say Goodbye

Antonio Brown (WR, PIT) 100% owned

SadFaceEmoji ?

T.Y. Hilton (WR, IND) 96% owned

Hilton was on this list last week and was only dropped in 1% of leagues. You aren't going to start him (I hope) so drop him and pick up someone you may.

Sammy Watkins (WR, LAR) 85% owned

Watkins had a good run, but with Robert Woods back he had just two catches for 14 yards on five targets. He is once again the fourth option in the passing game and cannot be trusted with so much on the line.
