Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: DT - Week 16 (with video)
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: One-week plays
The following fantasy football pickups are for those who need injury or bye week replacements. They are not players you immediately acquire - unless your team is in dire straits. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.
Washington Redskins (72 percent)
In six games (five starts) with Nick Foles under center, the Philadelphia Eagles have allowed 2.8 sacks and turned the ball over 2.5 times per contest. Of those 15 turnovers, four have been returned for touchdowns. The Redskins dominated the Eagles in Week 11 - four sacks, two takeaways and six points allowed - and they look like a nice option for Week 16 as well.
The Chicago Bears are in freefall. In their last six games they have lost five times, scoring 17 or less in each of them. Over their last two they have allowed six sacks and turned the ball over three times. For all their issues offensively, Arizona's defense can be stout; just ask the Detroit Lions. If you're hard up for a play, the Cards could deliver.
In the past month, the New York Jets have averaged four giveaways per game to go along with 2.5 sacks while scoring a whopping 13.25 points. Of course, nearly all of these numbers came with Mark Sanchez at the helm, but it's difficult to imagine Greg McElroy fairing significantly better. Even with their own season winding to a disappointing finish, the Chargers could still post some nice numbers against the hapless Jets.
