Cue the Europe, because it’s the final countdown. We’ve reached the fantasy football championship so let’s break down the fantasy football waiver wire for Week 16.
Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.
Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.
Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)
Blake Bortles, JAX (50-100%) — He’s tied for second among quarterbacks in fantasy scoring over the last three weeks and gets to face the 49ers.
