Fantasy Football: Top 5 Add/Drops after Week 15

For many leagues, this is championship week. It’s the most important week of the season. Whether it’s been DeAngelo Williams, Doug Baldwin, Tyler Eifert or anybody else, the waiver wire has produced some studs this year. In the final weeks, even with 45 weeks of add/drops behind us, there are still some potential studs out there.

DSN is here to let you know which players to trust, and which players to finally let go.



1. Add Rueben Randle

Rueben Randle

With Odell Beckham Jr. suspended for next week’s contest (pending appeal), Randle will be Eli Manning’s No. 1 option when the New York Giants face off with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Randle has a TD in his last two games, bringing his total to six on the season. Even with Beckham Jr. in the fold, Randle has been a FLEX option in fantasy leagues, but with Beckham Jr. on the shelf, Randle is a legitimate WR 2 option in Week 16.



 2. Add Christine Michael

Christine Michael

With both Thomas Rawls and Marshawn Lynch out due to injury, it was be anyone’s guess as to who would lead the Seattle Seahawks’ backfield coming into Week 15. Michael proved to be that guy on Sunday, rushing for 84 yards on 16 carries in Seattle’s win over the Cleveland Browns. While Michael doesn’t have the best matchup next week against the St. Louis Rams’ defense, he’s a starting RB available on the waiver wire heading into championship week and should be added, either to play on your team, or keep him from your opponent.



3. Add Kirk Cousins


Cousins exploded last week, passing for 319 yards and 4 TDs against the Buffalo Bills. Owned in only 25% of ESPN Fantasy Leagues, if you’re looking for a QB heading into the finals, Cousins is almost certainly your best option. With a good matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles on the horizon, Cousins is somebody you can trust in Week 16.



4. Drop Danny Amendola


Amendola put up his worst performance of the season on Sunday, only catching one pass for three yards and fumbling once. Amendola left the game early with a knee injury, and at this point, it’s unclear if he will be available next week. The sure-handed receiver hasn’t produced the way many had hoped for after Julian Edeleman went down to injury, and because of that, it’s safe to let Amendola go.



5. Drop DeMarco Murray


Murry has been one of the most disappointing fantasy RBs all year. After leading the league in rushing last season, Murray has dropped off drastically this season, only topping 100 rushing yards in one game this season. Over his last four contests, Murray has failed to put up even four points in ESPN standard leagues. With head coach Chip Kelly favoring both Ryan Matthews and Darren Sproles at this point season, owners can drop Murray for better options.
