The 2020 NFL season is now 15 weeks old and the time is now to start picking up players from your fantasy football waiver wire and hoping they catch fire during the fantasy playoffs. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-50 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing with the playoffs finally here in most leagues..

Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire tight ends for Week 16.

Austin Hooper, TE, Cleveland Browns

After missing Week 14 with a neck injury, Hopper returned in Week 15 and had five catches (on six targets) for 41 yards and a touchdown against the New York Giants. He has scored in two of his last three games, with a great matchup coming in Week 16.

As of this writing, the New York Jets are set to enter Week 16 as the worst fantasy defense against tight ends by a solid margin. They have allowed the most touchdowns to the position (13), including a tight end score in five straight games.
