Waiver Wire Additions Week 16

Tim TebowTebow has officially been listed the starter for the Broncos final two games, and after watching him vs. the Raiders I am extremely encouraged. Tebow threw for 138 yards, ran for 78, while throwing and running for a touchdown against the stealthy Oakland defense. The Texans have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season and are dead last against the pass. In a two quarterback league picking up Tebow and playing him over Alex Smith, Matt Hasselbeck, and Colt McCoy is a risk worth taking.

Rex GrossmanComing off a four touchdown game, Grossman in one week had a better fantasy game then Donovan McNabb had in weeks 1-14.  Back from the dead was Santana Moss with Grossman slinging the rock, and Anthony Armstrong looked like a legitimate number two receiver vs. the Cowboys. The Jaguars are giving up 256 yards passing yards per game this season, with a secondary made of swiss cheese. While it’s impossible to trust Grossman, if you’re choosing a quarterback based off their opponent, Grossman is worth a look as he could explode in Jacksonville.

Derrick WardAs of now Arian Foster is expected to play at Denver, even though he left the game at the Titans with ankle and hip injuries. In-case Foster sits out; Ward becomes a top 12 running back for your championship game on Sunday. While Ward didn’t look great vs. Tennessee, the Denver rushing defense ranks 31st in the league, so Ward has an extremely favorable match up. Averaging 5.5 yards per carry this season, Ward will be utilized as a pass catcher against a team that gives up just fewer than 30 points per game. Monitor Foster all week, because if he’s not playing, Ward should be the hottest add of the week.

David NelsonThe undrafted free agent has emerged with the Bills and has taken over for Lee Evans in the Buffalo passing game. Nelson has scored touchdowns in three straight weeks and is averaging just fewer than 10 fantasy points per game over this span. The Bills could be down early to the Patriots so Ryan Fitzpatrick could be forced to throw the ball 40 times, working to Nelson’s advantage. While you’re likely to ignore my Nelson recommendation, he could be the difference maker in championship Sunday.

Jimmy GrahamOutside of Marques Colston, owning Saints position players has been a pain in the rear all season. Graham, over the last couple of weeks has slowly become a top 10 tight end option. The rookie has overtaken Jeremy Shockey as the red zone option, and that was evident Sunday as he scored two touchdowns at the Ravens. In the Monday Night game against the Falcons Graham is a top 12 tight end option, in a season where rookie tight ends have shined.
