IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 16
Week 16 of the fantasy football season has arrived, which means that it’s Title Game time in most IDP leagues, which means that congratulations are in order if you’ve guided your squad this far in 2011.
It also means that not only has the waiver wire been picked over more than a ham at Rosie O’ Donnell’s house but odds are if you’ve made it this far you’re not looking for someone to plug into the lineup headed into the most important game season.
However, since it’s certainly possible, for Championship Week scramblers here are some players that should be available on many IDP waiver wires that are worth targeting as we head into Week 16.
PICKUP OF THE WEEK
William Moore – SS, Atlanta Falcons: Many IDP pundits (myself included) had Moore pegged as a rising talent entering his third season, but he’d been a huge disappointment to this point in 2011. However, Moore appears to be healthy and back at starter for the Falcons and led Atlanta with 7 tackles against Jacksonville, so IDP owners looking for a matchup play DB need look no farther than Moore’s tilt with the New Orleans Saints.
Mark Anderson – DE, New England Patriots: With Andre Carter reportedly done for the season after being carted off the field in Denver last week Mark Anderson will see quite a few more snaps, and given that Anderson’s racked up nine sacks in a limited role the sixth-year veteran is certainly worth a look from IDP teams that need a boost up front headed into a favorable matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
Jordan Senn – MLB, Carolina Panthers: I’m not going to lie to you, in many IDP leagues the wire has been bled so dry that there’s precious little in the way of startable LB to be had, but Senn is coming off 14 tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception in last week’s win over Houston and has a favorable matchup with the Tampa Buccaneers this week, so he may be worth a desperation look.
Chris Harris – CB, Denver Broncos: This week’s matchup cornerback du jour, the rookie led the Broncos with nine solos in their Week 15 loss to the New England Patriots, and with a matchup forthcoming against a Buffalo Bills team that allows the third most fantasy points per game to opposing cornerbacks that’s led by a Harvard man having a post-extension meltdown he may well post two solid games in a row.
