Week 14 marks the start of the fantasy playoffs in most leagues, so the competition on the waiver wire is likely to drop as half of the owners in your league pack it in for the year. If you made the postseason, your team is probably in good shape, but there's always an opportunity to shore up a weakness or add depth for the playoffs.

Let's take a look at the top waiver wire pickups for Week 14:
Yes, Grossman was brutal against the Jets
, but most QBs are brutal against the Jets
. His upcoming schedule is very favorable -- the Patriots
are in the top 5 in most Adjusted FP allowed to QBs, while the Giants
are also pretty generous in that category.
Moore now has three solid fantasy outings in a row and has three below average pass defenses to close the season. He's not a start without risk, but if you are hurting at QB, you could do a lot worse than Moore to close the season.
Ponder has thrown for 778 yards and six TDs in his last three games. He has the struggling Lions
this week and the Saints
in Week 15.
He is going to lose Andre Johnson
for a couple of weeks, but with the Panthers
in Weeks 15-16, Yates should be a decent (albeit unexciting) start in the fantasy playoffs.
