We’re down to the last week. There’s not much of an opportunity to pick up that missing piece to win your league on the waiver wire, but there are still some options that could be starters on even championship-level rosters.

For those who are still paying attention to the waiver wire, here’s the best week 16 waiver wire adds.

Ty Montgomery, RB, Green Bay Packers

I snatched up Montgomery earlier this season after he was the main option to replace Eddie Lacy. Then the Packers went into the non-running back mode, leaving Montgomery back in the waiver wire for the majority of other fantasy leagues.

After his week 15 game, he should generate some serious consideration to start for fantasy football teams in the championship round.

He went for 162 yards rushing and two touchdowns against Chicago in week 15. Montgomery is a classic example that sometimes people are too quickly dismissed. He was a drop candidate earlier this season, but he’s now more comfortable in his role as running back.

It might be more beneficial to wait a bit on some players before just dismissing them as fantasy options.

And Mongtomery should get some consideration this week against Minnesota. The Vikings looked awful in week 15 and have been giving up more yards in recent weeks. Montgomery now has back-to-back double-digit fantasy efforts, giving fantasy owners who pick him up this week an opportunity to chalk up some more fantasy points.

Robby Anderson, WR, New York Jets

Starting a New York Jets wide receiver isn’t likely┬áthe reason anyone would be in the fantasy football championship.

But it doesn’t mean that Anderson can’t contribute WR3 production in week 16.

Anderson has emerged as the top receiver for Bryce Petty, putting him in double-digit fantasy points for three straight weeks. More importantly, he has 29 targets in the last three weeks.

You can’t ignore that many targets, regardless of who Anderson suits up for on a weekly basis. The Jets have a tough matchup in week 16 against New England, but who’s to say New York doesn’t fall behind big again, necessitating more attention toward the passing game.

Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks

For the first time this season, he started in two wide-receiver sets for the Seahawks. He responded by being targeted eight times, catching seven balls for 130 yards.

That gives him at least 19 points in two of the last three games. And even though a matchup against Arizona awaits the Seahawks, I’m a little less frightened of that matchup after the Cardinals didn’t show up in week 15.

The Seahawks will still throw the football plenty against Arizona, even with the division wrapped up.

Lockett was an option earlier this season many believed would be a solid fantasy option, only to not show up for the majority of the season. He’s now here and should be a good fantasy option in week 16.

He’s owned in a little more than 50 percent of fantasy leagues, so he may not be on your waiver wire. If he is, you should grab him this week and make him a WR2.
