Fantasy football owners are preparing for their Super Bowl this week, and here are 10 waiver wire additions that could push an owner to a first (or third) place finish.
Last week, fantasy football fans witnessed a few breakout performances, as running back Kalen Ballage put himself on the map with 123 rushing yards on 12 carries, taking full advantage of injuries to top Miami Dolphins backs Frank Gore and Kenyan Drake.
Damien Williams was even better in Week 15 with Spencer Ware out for the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football, as he did his best to lead his team to victory by scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns with 74 receiving yards to boot. Unfortunately, Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams was even better, as the former top-10 draft pick bossed the Chiefs maligned secondary for two receiving touchdowns with a rushing score thrown in for good measure.
Marlon Mack carried the load for the Indianapolis Colts with two rushing touchdowns, Robby Anderson had another big game as the leading wide receiver in the New York Jets offense, Robert Foster showed his huge potential again, Wendell Smallwood stole the show in the Philadelphia Eagles backfield in an upset win over the Los Angeles Rams, and Jamaal Williams finally had a strong game for the Green Bay Packers with Aaron Jones hurt.
Injuries and breakout performances provided some huge shakeups in Week 15, so fantasy football owners must monitor the waiver wire closely this week before the championship games begin. Here are 10 possible waiver wire pickups this week.
