Greg Ward- WR- Eagles

It looks like rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts has found some chemistry with wide receiver Greg Ward. Last week against the Cardinals, Ward had four receptions for 15 yards and two scores. The Eagles face the Cowboys this weekend, whose defense has allowed the third most fantasy points to wide receivers this year. Hurts is in line for another monstrous fantasy day, and Ward could easily be along for the ride. Pick up and start Ward if you need a wide out for your week 16 final.



Zach Pascal- WR- Colts

Colts' wide out Zach Pascal might be a player worth looking at this week in free agency. Last week against the Texans, he had five receptions for 79 yards and two touchdowns. Pascal hasn't been the most consistent player this season, but he may be worth a pickup against a struggling Pittsburgh defense this week. You can get him for a buck today.



Mitchell Trubisky- QB- Bears

If you are desperate for a quarterback this weekend, Bears' quarterback may be worth a dollar. Since becoming the starter back in week 12, Trubisky has eight touchdowns and three interceptions. The Bears face the Jaguars this week, whose defense has allowed the second most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. If you need a QB, Trubisky is worth a buck this week.





Austin Hooper- TE- Browns

The former Falcon, Austin Hooper, may be worth a look in week 16. In his last game he had five receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown against the Giants. The Browns face the Jets in week 16, whose defense has given up the most fantasy points to tight ends this season. If you need to pick up a tight end for your week 16 final, Hooper as good as a chance as any other waiver pickup to score a touchdown.





Ito Smith- RB- Falcons

Head Coach Raheem Morris has named Ito Smith the starting running back heading into week 16. With Todd Gurley struggling to stay healthy and produce on the field, Smith will get his shot on Sunday against a middle-of-the-road Kansas City run defense. Smith still isn't a player that fantasy owners should trust. He could easily split time or get out-touched by Gurley or Brian Hill. But if you are desperate for a running back, Smith may be Falcon running back to start. Get him for a buck this week.





Ty Johnson- RB- Jets

While Frank Gore is the starting running back in New York, Ty Johnson has found a recent role as the third down back. Last week against the Rams, Johnson had six receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown. The Jets face the Browns this week, who has a decent run defense. Johnson might need to be utilized out of the backfield once again if quarterback Sam Darnold needs to get rid of the ball quick. Get him for a buck today.
