Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: TE - Week 16

by Bryce McRae on December 22, 2010 @ 20:00:00 PDT


If you are serious about winning your fantasy league football championship, stay on top of your fantasy football team throughout the year.

Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, KFFL brings you its Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, which breaks down players to pick up. Be aggressive when picking up fantasy football free agents. Even if you do not need a player, you can tuck him away for depth or block others from adding him to their fantasy football team.

Fantasy football free agents: Look to acquire

The following players will have greater significance in deep fantasy football leagues. In shallow fantasy football leagues, they are not as high of a priority but should be considered based on your fantasy football team's needs.

Randy McMichael, San Diego Chargers (93 percent)

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates
Gates closed?

Antonio Gates (foot) might be done until the playoffs, if the Chargers even make it that far. McMichael should continue to fill in for the Pro Bowler. In Week 15, McMichael caught all five of his targets for 55 yards.

This week, San Diego faces the Cincinnati Bengals, who are allowing 7.5 points per game to this position over the last month. Next week, he faces the Denver Broncos, who are giving up 10.5 points per game. Both are solid matchups.

Malcom Floyd's (hamstring) return will push McMichael down the pecking order for touches, and he's hardly a sure thing to remain as involved as last week given the other options in this offense. Still, if you're looking for more than a one-week option, you could do worse than McMichael.
