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 17.
Jahan Dotson, WR, Commanders: The rookie made it three straight solid games, although two were against the Giants, when he caught six passes for 76 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers.
Isaiah Hodgins, WR, Giants: He's had three good games out of the last four and has caught three touchdowns over that stretch. Hodgins caught eight passes for 89 yards and scored against the Vikings and has a matchup with the Colts next.
Tyler Allgeier, RB, Falcons: He was picked up in the middle of the season and probably got dropped after some lackluster results. Allgeier is on a two game tear, rushing for 213 yards in that stretch. He gets to face a reeling Cardinals team next.
Tyler Higbee, TE, Rams: With Baker Mayfield leading the Rams, Higbee has been a monster. He just caught nine passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Broncos. He has three touchdowns over the last two games.
D.J. Chark, WR, Lions: I can understand why it's hard to trust him. He's been productive in five of the nine games he's played in; pretty hit or miss. Chark was a hit in the loss to the Panthers, catching four passes for 108 yards. It's a good matchup with the Bears next.
Chuba Hubbard, RB, Panthers: At times, both Hubbard and D'Onta Foreman can be productive, like last weekend. Hubbard rushed for 125 yards on just 12 carries while Foreman rushed for 165 yards.
Zack Moss, RB, Colts: With Johnathan Taylor out, Moss has gotten a lot of touches over the last few weeks. He had 65 rushing yards against the Chargers and if he gets in the end zone against the Giants, he could have a big day at just the right time for managers.
Greg Dortch, WR, Cardinals: He was an early season darling, but disappeared when his teammates got healthy. Dortch has proven, though, that he will be productive when given the opportunity. He caught 10 passes for 98 yards with Trace McSorley QBing the team.
Curtis Samuel, WR, Commanders: He's shown some life recently, as he's caught 14 passes for 159 yards and a TD over the last three games. If you're desperate for some flex points, you could do worse.
Brock Purdy, QB, 49ers: If you lost Tua Tagovailoa due to concussion protocol, or if you have Jalen Hurts and he doesn't come back in time, Purdy has now notched four straight games with at least two touchdown passes. He has a great matchup with the Raiders next.
Gardner Minshew, QB, Eagles: Minshew showed he can be productive against a good defense; he threw two TD passes to go with 355 yards against the Cowboys. He faces the Saint next.
Taysom Hill, TE, Saints: It would be a total hero play to start Hill at this point, but if the Saints pivot to an offense where he handles the ball like he did against the Browns, it could be worth it if he ends up scoring. The Saints play the Eagles next and garbage time might come into play.
Defenses/Special Teams to stream: Giants (vs. Colts), Jaguars (vs. Texans), Panthers (vs. Buccaneers).
