Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: DT - Week 14

by Tim Heaney on December 7, 2011 @ 17:59:39 PDT


If you are serious about winning your fantasy league football championship, stay on top of your fantasy football team throughout the year.

Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, KFFL brings you its Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, which breaks down players to pick up. Be aggressive when picking up fantasy football free agents. Even if you do not need a player, you can tuck him away for depth or block others from adding him to their fantasy football team.

Fantasy football free agents: Priority additions

The following players should be high on your radar and are worthy of being added immediately to your fantasy football team.

Seattle Seahawks (64 percent)

In Week 14 they'll host the St. Louis Rams, who could be down to third-string QB Tom Brandstater. Even if Sam Bradford (ankle) or A.J. Feeley (thumb) can go, this O has hardly been anything that can put up ample resistance. Feeley was sacked four times and threw one pick while being shut out in Week 13. In Week 15, Seattle will tangle with a Chicago Bears squad that won't have Jay Cutler (thumb) or Matt Forte (knee).

This isn't just a matchup-dictated listing. The Seahawks have been serviceable over the last month, averaging 2.25 sacks, 2.0 interceptions and one fumble recovery per game. That performance included a surprising Week 12 win against the Baltimore Ravens and a Week 11 five-sack snuffing out of these Rams.

Yeremiah Bell, SS, Miami Dolphins
How rusty will Vick be?

Miami Dolphins (78 percent)

Sure, the Oakland Raiders dealt with several injuries on offense in Week 13, but outside of two garbage-time TDs, Miami allowed very little against them Sunday. They sacked Carson Palmer twice and registered a pick, giving them averages of 2.0 sacks and 1.75 interceptions per game over the last month. As cornerback Vontae Davis has healed from hamstring woes and has made his way back in the swing following his one-game suspension in Week 9, this pass D has improved.

Michael Vick (ribs) could return this weekend, but that shouldn't deter you from using Miami against Vick's reeling Philadelphia Eagles. The QB has registered as many picks as he has touchdown passes, and he's still prone to sacks. Miami's ground resistance could be one of the strongest LeSean McCoy has faced this year, so Vick would probably have to do more than Philly wants him to do in what would be his first game since Week 10. The O could still be without WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring, shoulder), as well.
