Fantasy Football 2014 Rankings, Sleepers & Week 16 Waiver Wire: Top 5 NFL Players to Pick Up This Week
Week 16 of the 2014 NFL Fantasy Football season is here.
As we all know, staying on top of your waiver wire is key to winning your Fantasy Football league. As the season comes to an end, time is becoming more and more limited for Fantasy Football owners to win their league. This week, wide receivers and running backs are thriving in the waiver wire.
Here are five players you should consider signing off waiver wire for Week 16:
1. Eli Manning
The New York Giants won't be playing in the postseason for the fifth time in the last six seasons, but quarterback Eli Manning has been putting together some good numbers lately. After his five-interception performance against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11, a lot of Fantasy Football owners dropped Manning instantly. Since that game, Manning has thrown six touchdowns to just interceptions. It may be a lost season for Big Blue, but Manning is a veteran quarterback who can still put up quality numbers. The Giants will face the St. Louis Rams next week.
2. Terrance Williams
Dez Bryant is obviously the 'go-to guy' for Tony Romo, but Terrance Williams is having a great season for the Dallas Cowboys. Williams has 501 receiving yards this season, which ranks third on the team. More importantly, Williams has six touchdowns this season, the second most on the Cowboys, even more than star tight end Jason Witten. Williams doesn't make a lot of catches, but with zero fumbles and six touchdowns, he could be a fantasy star against Indianapolis Colts pass defense next week.
3. Greg Jennings
Remember this guy? The former elite wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers is having a quality season for the Minnesota Vikings. Jennings leads the Vikings with 53 catches, 641 yards and five touchdowns this season. Not earth-shattering, by any means, but for fantasy owners having trouble at wide receiver, Jennings could be a good addition. Jennings has found the end zone three of the last four weeks. Facing the Miami Dolphins next week will be tough, but the Vikings will play the pitiful Chicago Bears defense in Week 17 at home.
4. CJ Anderson
The Denver Broncos may have a future Hall of Fame quarterback, but they are slowly becoming more run friendly week-by-week. The Broncos have eclipsed the 100-yard mark four consecutive weeks, including two 200-yard games. Leading the way is CJ Anderson, who is averaging 4.6 yards per carry. He entered the season as a third stringer behind Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman, but the 23-year-old back is making a name for himself. Expect Anderson to have a big game against the Cincinnati Bengals next week on Monday Night Football.
5. Carlos Hyde
The San Francisco 49ers have officially been eliminated from the playoffs, and Frank Gore isn't getting any younger. Carlos Hyde is the future star running back of this squad, and with just two games remaining in the 49ers season, they will give him a lot of carries. Despite having 121 less carries than Gore, Hyde has more rushing touchdowns. In his last game, Hyde had a season-high 55 rushing yards on just six carries against the Seattle Seahawks.
