    Below is a list of some names that Craig, Greg and Mike think could be worth a shot on your roster. This list will be updated throughout the day Monday, just in time for waiver wire openings on Tuesday. Keep in mind, we’re almost in Week 14 and the waiver wire is getting thinner and thinner and it might be the final week your league allows you to perform them. Choose wisely. Our list of potential players is going to continue to get smaller. If you have any specific questions about possible waiver wire players, please contact one of our staff members (craig@fantasyfootball.com or greg@fantasyfootball.com).


    1. Tarvaris Jackson (Minnesota) — If you think Brett Favre is going to ruin his consecutive games started streak, think again. But don’t be surprised if Favre doesn’t re-injure his shoulder or whatever ails him next, giving way to the younger Jackson at some point. He looked good, at times, in Week 13 and because of his ability with his legs, he could have some value in the final few weeks.

    2. John Skelton (Arizona) — I raved about this guy in the pre-season, thinking he might actually have the tools to beat out Matt Leinart. Little did I know Leinart would get cut, they’d bring on Derek Anderson, Max Hall would move ahead of John Skelton on the depth chart, and the rookie from Fordham would be inactive every week. Skelton took over for the ineffective Derek Anderson in Week 13 and HC Ken Whisenhunt will be more than happy to give him a shot to show what he can do.

    3. Jason Campbell (Oakland) — Bruce Gradkowsk is done for the year. Campbell was actually serviceable in Week 13 vs. San Diego, so I guess you could do worse, right? Only if you’re desperate boys, only if you’re desperate.

    4. Alex Smith (San Francisco) Looks like the Troy Smith experiment is over, for now, after the crushing defeat to the Packers over the weekend. Alex had lead the 49ers to a dismal 1-6 record, but his knowledge of the system is still favored over the “Let me make things up as I go” mentality of Troy. The Seahawks give up close to 300 yards a game through the air, so Smith is only an option if you are ABSOLUTELY DESPERATE.

    Running Backs

    1. Tashard Choice (Dallas) — Choice was on our list last week because we knew Marion Barber wasn’t going to be healthy enough to play. Now Jason Garrett has to grow a pair and actually consider benching Barber in favor of Choice next week and actually using his 100-yard rusher.

    2. James Starks (Green Bay) — I’ve been telling people for over two months to get this guy for when he was taken off the PUP list. Hope you listened. It looks as if it’s time the Packers are going to promote him so he’s actually worth something other than wearing a parka on the sidelines. 18 rushes for 73 yards (4.4 average) against one of the best rushing defenses in the league. Not bad for a first game.

    3. James Davis (Washington) — Another one of those guys I have been pimping for the last few months. In fact, if you look back even at some of last year’s articles, you know how high I am on him. Davis can do a lot of things and caught three passes in Week 13 vs. New York.

    4. Chris Ivory (New Orleans) — I’ve had enough of Pierre Thomas’ “injury” issues. Hey Pierre, go ahead and sit out the rest of the season… you already screwed your fantasy owners enough. I’d much rather see Chris Ivory play with some heart than watch you with all your talent but no guts.

    Wide Receivers

    1. Roy Williams (Dallas) — With Dez Bryant out for the year and Miles Austin already established as the starter, Williams now becomes a guy you have to think about. Williams, as long as he doesn’t allow any more balls to be stripped, is a very dangerous receiver and actually worked with Jon Kitna when they were both in Detroit.

    2. Seyi “Tutu” (San Diego) — Maybe it was the fact they were getting their butts kicked, but Tutu was the target of eight Philip Rivers… and the majority of those formations. Tutu is a threat to score over time he touches the ball.

    3. Jacoby Ford (Oakland) — This is the last week he’ll be on this list. Ford should already be on a fantasy roster, but if he’s not, he needs to be added to yours.

    Tight Ends

    1. Ed Dickson (Baltimore) — Sunday night against the Steelers, Todd Heap went down on the first play from scrimmage with a hamstring injury, which could knock him out Week Fourteen and possibly longer. With Dennis Pitta playing the H-Back role, Dickson caught three passes for 21 yards in the loss. We don’t see Dickson having huge value, but he could be someone to look at in larger leagues.
