MIAMI, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Finally, the fantasy football finals have arrived.
You can stop crossing your fingers, hoping that your players avoid the injury bug. If you've made it this far, you likely have a healthy roster prepared to do battle and achieve fantasy football glory.
To help you figure out which players your opponent might have an eye on and assist you in earning your league bragging rights, take a look at my top players to add and top players to drop for Week 16.
QB | Matt Moore; RB | Adrian Peterson, Ty Montgomery, Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis; WR | Dontrelle Inman, Tyler Lockett, Sterling Shepard; TE | Dion Sims, Jared Cook; D/ST | San Diego Chargers; K | Randy Bullock
Matt Moore threw a career-high four touchdown passes last week, after taking over for Miami Dolphins starter Ryan Tannehill. I expect Moore to throw some more on Christmas Eve against the Buffalo Bills. He is only worth adding if you are in a two-quarterback league or need to keep him away from a quarterback-needy opponent.
Robert Griffin III is another desperation add. Although the Cleveland Browns quarterback hasn't thrown a touchdown in three games this season, he has scored twice on the ground in consecutive weeks. The Browns host the San Diego Chargers at 1 p.m. Saturday, and will likely be playing from behind.
Ty Montgomery is this week's top waiver-wire target. Montgomery exploded in Week 15, and was integral in putting many fantasy teams in their league championship. The Green Bay Packers running back/wide receiver turned 18 touches into 163 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns last Sunday. Although I don't expect similar production this week, Montgomery is still worth starting against the Minnesota Vikings. He will get plenty of opportunities and touches, making him a trustworthy option for your fantasy football championship.
Derrick Henry is finally starting to get steady work behind DeMarco Murray in the Tennessee Titans' backfield. In Week 15, the rookie had nine carries for 58 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers give him three scores in his last three games. I expect another week with somewhere around 10 touches for Henry. With his talent, and the Titans' success running the ball this season, I expect flex level production from Henry against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Since the New York Giants' Week 8 bye, Sterling Shepard has scored five times. Although it's tough to count on a rookie in the fantasy football championship, Shepard has been consistent enough to be worthy of WR3 consideration for Week 16.
Tyler Lockett was a large benefactor in Russell Wilson's Week 15 resurgence. The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver is worth an add to your fantasy football lineup, if only to keep him away from your opponent. Last week, Lockett had 130 yards and a score on seven receptions. I expect another week of good production in a home matchup against the sinking Arizona Cardinals.
Miami Dolphins tight end Dion Sims has developed into a steady red zone option for whoever is playing quarterback. With Matt Moore, against the New York Jets, Sims secured four receptions for 31 yards and two touchdowns. He now has reached pay dirt four times in his last four games. He is a fringe TE1 this week against the Buffalo Bills.
