Look to add these players with championship week upon us

QB Will Grier

The rookie quarterback is expected to get his first NFL start this week, as Kyle Allen has been inconsistent and underperforming with the weapons around him. There’s no telling how he will do in his first career start, but it’s worth a gamble considering the receivers and McCaffery. Grier and the Panthers will take on a Colts secondary that got completely annihilated by Drew Brees and the Saints in Week 16.

RB Adrian Peterson

With Guice out with a knee injury again, Peterson will continue to be the starter for the rest of the season. Even though he’s 34 years old, he continues to put up consistent numbers for a terrible Redskins team. Peterson and the Redskins take on an equally terrible team, the Giants, in Week 16.

WR Breshad Perriman

Over the past three weeks, Perriman has emerged as a number two option behind Godwin in the Buccaneers’ pass-heavy offense, totaling 13 catches for 270 yards and 4 touchdowns. With Godwin most likely out for their Week 16 game against the Texans, Perriman should be one of the team’s most targeted receivers. This opens the door to lots of fantasy points.

WR Steven Sims Jr.

Sims is finally starting to get into a groove in his rookie year. The return specialist and receiver has been getting more and more playing time, and he’s been capitalizing on it. Last game, he caught his first touchdown and continues to rack up kick-return yards. Look for these numbers to keep adding up when he and the Redskins play the Giants.

TE Tyler Higbee

In Everett’s absence, Higbee has been nothing less than dominant. He’s had three straight 100+ yard games against the Cardinals, Seahawks, and Cowboys respectfully. Additionally, he’s been targeted over 10 times the last two games. Though Higbee and the Rams take on the 49ers in Week 16, he will continue to see a lot of targets.

Honorable Mention: Vikings RBs

With Dalvin Cook questionable with a shoulder injury for Week 16, Alexander Mattison (if he’s healthy) and Mike Boone will get split carries. Boone excelled in Week 15 against the Chargers with Cook and Mattison both out, racking up 13 carries for 53 yards and 2 touchdowns. If Cook is out again in Week 16 against the Packers, Boone and Mattison will both be fantasy relevant.
