Free-agent acquisition budget (FAAB) leagues level the playing field for nabbing fantasy free agents after every week. They also allow fantasy managers to employ a great deal more strategy when acquiring players because each team has a limited amount of dollars to work with.

All players in this article will be rostered in less than half of Yahoo leagues unless otherwise noted. Here is how you should be allocating your FAAB heading into Week 16.

QB Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

Suggested FAAB Spend: 90%
