Carson Wentz and Robby Anderson appear to be solid streaming options for next week , and Samaje Perine (as well as all the RBs in handcuffs) could become potentially hot additions to waivers after Week 16 thanks to injury or complications from COVID.

For those still competing in your fantasy football playoffs, we're here to help you identify the top waiver wire pickups, free agents, and streamers ahead of the Week 17 championship round. Of course, you could be eliminated by this time next week, but plan ahead like you're going to emerge victorious. Carson Wentz and Robby Anderson look to be solid streaming options for next week, and Samaje Perine (as well as every handcuff RB) could all become potentially hot adds on waivers after Week 16 thanks to an injury or COVID complications. If you can get them for free now, it could be a big move for the fantasy Super Bowl. Since Week 17 will mark the conclusion of the majority of leagues, we're obviously not looking for more than one-week solutions anymore, so this will be an "all streamer addition" of our watchlist (outside of the group of RB handcuffs).

Fantasy Injury Updates: Latest news on Jalen Hurts, Damien Harris, Miles Sanders, more affecting Week 15 waiver pickups

  Fantasy Injury Updates: Latest news on Jalen Hurts, Damien Harris, Miles Sanders, more affecting Week 15 waiver pickups Jalen Hurts, Damien Harris, Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard, and Myles Gaskin are coming off byes, but they were dealing with various ailments last week. Their availabilities will affect Week 15 fantasy waiver pickups, so you need the latest injury and COVID updates.For all the latest fantasy news, follow us on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 17 Streaming targets free agent sleepers include Carson Wentz Samaje Perine Robby Anderson . Now's the time for owners to stay ahead on the fantasy football waiver wire and scout potential free agent pickups. Prior to Weeks 16 and 17 , it could be smart to add guys like Carson Wentz , Samaje Perine , Robby Anderson as streaming options.

Week 13 Waiver Wire Watchlist: Quarterback. Notable QBs on bye: Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater. Taysom Hill, Saints @ Falcons (53). Hill was solid in his first start and was able to score twice on the ground against the Falcons. In Week 13, he gets to take on the Falcons once again and should be able to Joe Mixon (foot) is out until at least Week 14, and Giovani Bernard just landed in the NFL's concussion protocol. It's possible Bernard is cleared in time to play in Week 12 against the Giants, but if he's out, Perine would handle the bulk of the RB touches. That might not lead to a ton of fantasy points, as Cincinnati's

The waiver wire is obviously thin at this point, but as injuries mount and concerning matchups arrive, we must prepare for all scenarios. COVID-19 started surging through NFL locker rooms in the lead-up to Week 14 and we're probably going to deal with it in Weeks 16 and 17, so make sure you're adding depth to your roster, even if you think you're fully set.

WEEK 16 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Start 'em, sit 'em

Since we're headed to the final week of the season, it's now crucial to handcuff your RBs (and in some cases, WRs) because you no longer need players who once had the potential to be late-season lotto tickets but ultimately didn't pan out. You don't want to risk a player like David Montgomery or Saquon Barkely getting hurt in Week 16 because Khalil Herbert and Devontae Booker would instantly become difficult to acquire. Grab handcuffs now so they'll be ready to enter your lineup right away with no stress. In two-QB/superflex leagues, the same notion applies to QBs. It might feel pointless to add Sam Darnold or Mitchell Trubisky, but if you own Cam Newton or Josh Allen, and they suffer an injury, you could be heading into next week without two starting QBs.

Best Fantasy Week 16 Waiver Pickups: Duke Johnson surprises, Gabriel Davis continues late-season breakout

  Best Fantasy Week 16 Waiver Pickups: Duke Johnson surprises, Gabriel Davis continues late-season breakout Duke Johnson and Gabriel Davis both enjoyed big performances in the first round of the fantasy football playoffs, and both will be among the top Week 16 fantasy waiver pickups and free agent adds ahead of the second round.Our full free agent list doesn't feature many guys who should necessarily be picked up because of their high levels of production or talent. It's more about opportunities and matchups. With the recent rash of players going on the reserve/COVID list, not to mention the usual amount of injuries, having capable backups in favorable matchups at every position will be key.

Colts QB Carson Wentz threw for 223 yards and two scores in a game the Colts won handily against the Texans. It was not like last week when he threw for 402 yards and two scores, but he has now topped 17 fantasy points in every game this season but one. Wentz is not a weekly starter, but with the byes hitting hard in the coming weeks , Wentz is an intriguing option. Bengals RB Chris Evans played 24 percent of the snaps with four carries and three targets . He finished with three catches, 67 total yards and a touchdown. Its worth noting that  Samaje Perine  was placed on the COVID-19 list last week , but

Week 16 Waiver Wire Watchlist: RB. Week 16 and 17 matchups listed . Anderson has been one of the biggest busts of the season, but he's improved since Sam Darnold has been out. O'Shaugnessy has drawn 17 targets in the past three weeks , and since Trevor Lawrence obviously loves throwing to tight ends, he might have one of the safest floors among all streamers. Fantasy Waiver Wire Week 16: Ronald Jones, Justin

At the very least, it's good to have a list of names of players to watch on Sunday so you can monitor snap share and targets/touches, and it's always smart to claim matchup-based streamers at positions like TE or D/ST before there's competition for them.

Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 16 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks

  Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 16 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks Injuries and COVID continues to make start 'em, sit 'em decisions practically impossible, but if you've made the second round of your fantasy football playoffs, we're here for you. Get Week 16 fantasy lineup advice and DFS tips from SN NFL expert Vinnie Iyer.This week figures to be busy and stressful for a lot of reasons for most fantasy owners, so as a friendly reminder, there's the regularly scheduled Thursday night game (49ers vs. Titans), two Saturday games (Packers vs. Browns and Colts vs. Cardinals), 12 regularly scheduled Sunday games, and the regularly scheduled Monday night game (Dolphins vs. Saints).

Using our Week 6 waiver wire watchlist, you can get ahead on potential top streaming targets in fantasy football . However, we're not giving up on finding season-long value either, so we'll continue to identity players who could be risers in the coming weeks . Sleepers Mac Jones, Alex Collins, Josh Gordon are some of the top free agents to watch leading up to Week 5 Joe Mixon tweaked his ankle in Week 4 and is listed as day-to-day. His injury isn't serious, but we've seen Mixon fall victim to a flurry of injuries in the past. Perine is his direct handcuff, so he warrants interest on the waiver wire or in free agency.

Reminder: This list was put together in the lead-in to Week 12, looking forward to the players that could be waiver - wire targets to scoop before the season starts to use in future weeks . If you have a roster spot to play with, these are options you could pick up early to beat the waiver buzz. Carson Wentz has played terribly for the Eagles this year and has been sacked a league-high 40 times. He also leads the league in interceptions thrown (14). The Packers have solid personnel on defense and have strung together good games against bad offenses this year, so they should do well against the Eagles.

Carson Wentz, Colts (48) vs. LV

Wentz has cooled off mightily lately, but the Raiders have allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to QBs heading into Week 16, so his ceiling is high for the fantasy championship.

Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins (42) @ TEN

The Dolphins have struggled to run the ball overall this season, and the Titans' are one of the fiercest defenses against the run. What does this all set up for? Expect 35-plus pass attempts against the Titans defense that has given up the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks.

Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers (39) vs. HOU

This matchup could ultimately set up for a ground-and-pound game plan for the 49ers, but there's no doubt a lot of points should be scored here. The YAC monsters Deebo Samuel and George Kittle can always rip off a long touchdown on an easy completion.

Justin Fields, Bears (25) vs. NYG

The Giants present just a natural matchup for QBs, but Fields has come alive in the rushing game in recent weeks, so his floor and ceiling have been raised. New York has nothing to play for, while the Bears are looking to build some momentum for next year. A QB1 week could be in play.

DeeJay Dallas, Seahawks (2) vs. DET

Dallas turned in 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 15, so he's a decent deep league option in a matchup with the lowly Lions. He's being used as a patch-catcher more than Rashaad Penny, so he's a stronger PPR play.

Notable Handcuffs — Nyheim Hines, Colts (50); Mark Ingram, Saints (47); Justin Jackson, Chargers (42); Dontrell Hilliard, Titans (33); Devontae Booker (23), Giants; Craig Reynolds, Lions (20); D’Ernest Johnson, Browns (18); Khalil Herbert, Bears (15); Samaje Perine, Bengals, (14)

49ers vs. Titans Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em for Week 16 'Thursday Night Football'

  49ers vs. Titans Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em for Week 16 'Thursday Night Football' Get your fantasy football week started off right with our start 'em, sit 'em lineup advice for San Francisco and Tennessee on Week 16 ''Thursday Night Football."The 49ers' offense is rolling with everyone key healthy, save for rookie running back Elijah Mitchell (knee). The running game has worked either with Deebo Samuel crossing over from wide receiver or Jeff Wilson Jr handling most of the carries. Tight end George Kittle has joined Samuel in dominating, and Brandon Aiyuk has found more relevance playing off both in the passing game.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling (42) vs. MIN

Minnesota gives up the most fantasy points to WRs, so MVS is probably the No. 1 option on waivers in Week 17 -- assuming he's off the reserve/COVID list. He's always a boom-or-bust play, but he's starting to get real volume, and we know all the defensive attention is always on Davante Adams.

Robby Anderson, Panthers (36) @ NO

Anderson was once a standard league touchdown-or-bust guy, but he's looking more like a high-floor, low-ceiling wideout in recent weeks, so he's in play against a Saints defense that has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to WRs.

Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 17 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks

  Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 17 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks It's time to win a fantasy football championship, and that starts with making the right start 'em, sit 'em decisions. Get Week 17 fantasy lineup advice and NFL DFS tips from SN NFL expert Vinnie Iyer.Obviously, all of the advice below is subject to change, as players can be snatched up by the reserve/COVID list without warning. With the NFL's new protocols in place, more players, such as Gabriel Davis, Mike Williams, and even Carson Wentz, could be available this week, but injuries and other issues figure to leave fantasy owners sweating out more than a few game-time decisions.

Gabriel Davis, Bills (33) vs. ATL

Cole Beasley (reserve/COVID) and/or Emmanuel Sanders (knee) could both return for this matchup, but if they don't, Davis could have another nuclear performance like he did in Week 15. The Falcons' have been a great matchup for WRs for several years, and the deep passing game should be thriving for Buffalo. Even if Beasley and Sanders do play, Davis is a solid TD-or-bust option. If they don't, he'll likely be ranked a WR2.

Kendrick Bourne, Patriots (28) vs. JAX

Bourne is purely a standard league TD-or-bust player, but he's often delivered in favorable matchups and that's exactly what he'll get in Week 17 against a spiraling Jaguars' team.

Jamison Crowder, Jets (28) vs. TB

We'd hoped Crowder would be more productive with Corey Davis (core) and Elijah Moore (quad) out, but perhaps their absences have shifted more defensive attention toward him. Moore is expected to be back in Week 17, so Crowder could go back to flying under the radar and be a solid PPR play. The Jets will presumably have to pass all day long, so a 10-target day is in play here.

Week 17 Waiver Wire Watchlist: TE

Week 17 matchups listed

Tyler Conklin, Vikings (44) @ GB

The Packers are basically a middle-of-the-pack defense against fantasy TEs, but with limited options this week, Conklin is in play thanks to his upside. This matchup always has shootout potential, so Conklin could take advantage here.

Gerald Everett, Seahawks (40) vs. DET

Everett has produced a handful of double-digit games in PPR leagues and has been a more reliable target than DK Metcalf. The Lions' offense has come alive, so Seattle shouldn't be able to dominate this game and abandon the passing game. Since Detroit is a middle-of-the-pack team against fantasy TEs, Everett has to be considered.

Cole Kmet, Bears (28) vs. NYG

Kmet is commanding a respectable number of targets lately, and that's enough reason at this position to be considered a streamer in a neutral matchup for TEs.

C.J. Uzomah, Bengals (18) vs. KC

Uzomah hasn't delivered a high-quality fantasy performance in quite some time, but Kansas City allows the 11th-most fantasy points to TEs and this game has real shootout potential. As always, he's a better standard-league option, but a touchdown or two will make him a TE1 either way.

Ricky Seals-Jones, Washington (14) vs. PHI

RSJ just played the Eagles, and while he didn't have a great game, we have to consider his QB play. Garrett Gilbert started for Washington and Seales-Jones drew seven targets (four catches, 29 yards), so there were some good signs. Taylor Heinicke will be back for this one, and the Eagles allow the most fantasy points to the position.

Week 17 defense streamers and sleepers

Week 17 matchups listed

Cleveland Browns DST (43) @ PIT

We aren't breaking any news suggesting Big Ben is washed, but the Steelers' offensive line is also one of the worst in the league, so Myles Garrett and company are set to tee off here. Expect plenty of points from sacks in an ugly, low-scoring game.

Seattle Seahawks DST (44) vs. DET

Detroit's offense has looked impressive lately, but Seattle's defense is better than most people think, so we could see the Lions' revert to its former mediocre self.

Pittsburgh Steelers DST (41) vs. CLE

We like the Steelers' defense for the same reasons we like Cleveland's. This will be a low-scoring game with a lack of explosive plays, so you're almost guaranteed to at least end up with positive points.

Carolina Panthers DST (24) @ NO

It's no secret the Saints' offense has its limitations, and while the Panthers' defensive unit has been exposed here and there, it usually delivers in favorable matchups.

Chicago Bears DST (15) vs. NYG

Mike Glennon or Jake Fromm will get the start here, and that's good enough reason for us to consider Chicago. Does anything else need to be said?
