Best Fantasy Week 16 Waiver Pickups: RBs Tony Pollard, Salvon Ahmed break out ahead of fantasy championship games

Every year, random RBs and WRs are starting for teams in fantasy football championship games, and this year, it looks like Tony Pollard and Salvon Ahmed will be among those players, as both headline our top Week 16 fantasy waiver wire pickups and free agent adds. Pollard and Ahmed weren't the only "handcuff" RBs to break out last week, as Sony Michel also played well in relief of Damien Harris and Le'Veon Bell scored even before Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a potential serious leg injury. Russell Gage, Lynn Bowden, Keke Coutee, Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, and Darnell Mooney are also seeing frequent targets and could find themselves in WR3 spots next week.
