The 2016 NFL season is 13 weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from your fantasy football waiver wire in order to make a playoff push. Every year a no name blows up in over the first few weeks of the season and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire Wide Receivers for Week 14.
Brandon LaFell, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

LaFell had five receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and over the last three games A.J. Green has essentially missed all of he has 12 catches on 25 targets.

Green may be able to return from a hamstring injury in Week 14, but he may less than 100 percent and there’s room for others to be productive in a matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Back in Week 7 against Cleveland, LaFell finished with four receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown.
At minimum, LaFell is a nice plug-and-play WR3 for Week 14. But if Green remains sidelined next week and beyond, or less than full strength, LaFell’s increased target volume over the last three games gives him WR2 upside during the fantasy playoffs. — Brad Berreman
