Waiver Wire Week 14: Top Pickups, Adds & Fantasy Rankings

It is slim pickings on your waiver wire. We get it but are here to help. Before we get into this week's top pickups, a brief word of advice. If you are headed to the fantasy playoffs, chances are you have a starting lineup that is, for the most part, set. This is the time of year you look to grab the best player available that another contender wants to pick up. For example, you might have two quarterbacks, but see a promising option at the position on the waiver wire. You notice there are a couple playoff teams that have been streaming quarterbacks. As long as you have your starting lineup set, go ahead and grab the quarterback to prevent an opponent from bettering their team. It just might be the difference when you face them in the playoffs. Secondly, you might have a glaring need at kicker or DST. Traditionally, these are some of the least valued positions in fantasy. However, if you see a stud defense or kicker on the waiver wire you should not feel bad about making them your top waiver wire priority. At this point, the goal of teams that are headed to the playoffs is to make sure you have the best starting lineup possible as well as preventing your opponent from doing the same. With that in mind, here is this week's list of top waiver wire pickups amidst the scarcity at virtually every position.
