Here's a look at some players that should take priority if you're hoping to pick up some reinforcements from the waiver wire heading into Week 16.
Jerick McKinnon, RB, Chiefs: With mostly playoff managers paying attention at this point in the season, McKinnon could still be available on your waiver wire. He's coming off a 122-yard game with two scores against the Texans. He has a great matchup with the Seahawks next.
Zay Jones, WR, Jaguars: You can't plead ignorance on this one. We've been suggesting him for weeks. He had six receptions for 109 yards and three scores in the upset win over the Cowboys. Problem is he has to face the Jets next.
Deon Jackson, RB, Colts: With Jonathan Taylor suffering a likely season-ending ankle injury, Jackson stands to get more touches in the final phase of the season. Zack Moss had more carries Sunday, but I think Jackson will be more productive as he rushed 13 times for 55 yards and caught a 1-yard TD.
Tyler Allgeier, RB, Falcons: After having a nice run in the middle of the season, Allgeier hadn't gained more than 64 yards from scrimmage in each of his last four games before Week 15. He had 17 rushes for 139 yards and a TD against the Saints.
Jahan Dotson, WR, Commanders: One thing is sure, he can get open. The rookie caught four passes for 105 yards and a TD, making it two straight games with a score. He has the 49ers and Browns in the next two games on the schedule.
K.J. Osborn, WR, Vikings: His upside finally became apparent as he caught 10 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown in the biggest comeback in NFL history. The Giants and Packers are his next two opponents.
Zack Moss, RB, Colts: If you want to bet on Moss, I couldn't really blame you as he had 24 carries for 81 yards in relief of Taylor. He faces the Chargers and Giants in the next two weeks.
Jordan Mason, RB, 49ers: He's operating on high efficiency as he recorded his third straight game of at least 51 yards behind Christian McCaffrey. If he finds the end zone some day, he could pay off from a flex spot. He rushed just four times for 64 yards against the Seahawks.
Noah Brown, WR, Cowboys: He had a strong start to the season before a goose egg and then injury slowed his momentum. Brown had a good game against the Texans and then caught six passes for 49 yards and two TDs in the loss to the Jags.
Russell Gage, WR, Buccaneers: If Julio Jones misses more action, Gage is proving he can fill in admirably. Gage caught eight passes for 59 yards and two scores playing in place of Jones against the Bengals.
Brock Purdy, QB, 49ers: He's still widely available and just logged his third-straight game with at least two touchdown passes. Purdy has a date with the Commanders at home next.
Zach wilson, QB, Jets: If you're a Jalen Hurts manager who needs a quick, desperate fill-in, Wilson might be useful as he faces the Jaguars who should be a good matchup. Wilson is coming off a 317-yard, 2-TD performance.
