Alright fantasy football enthusiasts, this is the last week for NFL
football and fantasy football. If you won a championship already,
congratulations. If this is the week the championship is decided, best
of luck. If you didn't compete for a championship, maybe you participate
in a keeper league and want to make a few moves before rosters are
locked for the season. Whatever your situation is heading into week 17, I
hope you enjoyed playing this season and if you're looking to make some
moves on the waiver wire, take a look below. See you again for the 2016
fantasy football season.
Kyle Rudolph- Tight End- Minnesota Vikings- While Kyle Rudolph may not
be a model of consistency for fantasy owners, he has been playing better
as of late. He may have had only three targets on Sunday but he did score a touchdown. He's an extremely touchdown dependent player but fantasy owners looking for a tight end in week 17 may want to take a look at the Minnesota tight end.
Dontrelle Inman- Wide Receiver- San Diego Chargers- Coming off of a game
where Inman saw 13 targets, he's become a steady option in the passing
game and has scored double digit fantasy points in two of his last four
Keshawn Martin- Wide Receiver- New England Patriots- The recently
acquired Martin will more than likely have little to no value once
Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola return from their injuries but until
then, he may be the receiver to own in New England not named Rob
Gronkowski. Week 16 saw Martin with a season high 11 targets tossed his
way as he hauled in seven balls for 68 yards. Once the Patriots offense
is at full strength, Martin may be nothing more than a special teams guy
but for now, he could be a sneaky play for week 17.
Jermaine Kearse- Wide Receiver- Seattle Seahawks- With 21 targets over
the last three games and the Seattle offense hitting on all cylinders,
fantasy owners will want to own a piece of the Seahawks passing game. Sunday
saw Kearse catch three passes for 38 yards and a score and just miss
posting double digit fantasy points for the second time in as many
weeks. Owners looking for receiver help will want to take a look at
Kearse for week 17.
Andre Ellington- Running Back- Arizona Cardinals- At this point, is
there any doubt as to David Johnson being the man in Arizona? Being
reduced to a change of pace back, Ellington scored less than five
fantasy points in week 16 and can not be counted on for week 17 if
you're playing for anything meaningful.
Will Tye- Tight End- New York Giants- Through no fault of his own, Tye
has become less of a fantasy stud the last couple of weeks since making a
name for himself. The Giants offense is so inconsistent that it's
difficult to trust anyone not named Odell Beckham Jr. Tye had three
catches for 28 yards in week 16 and will be hard to start in week 17
with anything on the line.
