Fantasy Football Week 17 Waiver Wire Wonders

If you are still alive in Fantasy Football this week, congratulations! You have undoubtedly made some screwed moves over the course of the season to put yourself in this position. With a ton of injuries and elite teams in position to rest a few guys, lets take a look at the players you can grab to put you over the top and deliver fantasy glory! Good luck everyone!

QB Michael Vick PHI vs. NYG
With rookie Nick Foles out with a broken hand Vick will get an unexpected but incredibly opportunistic start. Vick is set to be a hot commodity on the free agent market this off-season and has a great chance to audition for his new teams on Sunday. The Eagles have a chance to play spoilers this week as they can eliminate the Giants from the playoff picture. Expect a strong performance from Vick in this one.

RB Rashard Mendenhall  PIT vs. CLE
Returned from suspension last week and was more effective than current starter Jonnathan Dwyer. Going up against the Browns this week should offer plenty of opportunities for points for both backs. This will be the last chance Mendenhall has this season to make a case to be the starter going into 2013. Expect him to take full advantage of it.

RB Ryan Grant  GB vs. MIN
Had a huge game last week with 20 carries for 84 yards and two touchdowns. While a 20+ point performance is unlikely again this week, with all the injuries the Packers have had at RB Grant has taken hold of the starting job going into the playoff push. If you are looking for a guy who is going to get 20+ carries this week Grant could be your man.

WR Randy Moss SF vs. ARI
Mario Manningham tore his ACL last week and is now out for the season. Expect the 49ers to target Moss a lot this week to both tune up and see what he can give you going into the playoffs. A bit of a stretch pick but could very likely find the end-zone this week.

WR Jordan Shipley JAX vs. TEN
Chad Henne and company continue to sling the ball around, and damn near pulled off the upset of the season last week against the Patriots. Henne's favorite target Cecil Shorts suffered a season ending injury last week opening the door for Shipley to step in and become fantasy relevant. Again, a bit of a stretch but if you are in need of a WR3 or flex option, Shipley could be a nice sleeper pick.

D Buffalo Bills  vs. NYJ
"When in doubt, start the team playing the Jets"  We have lived by this all season and it holds true once more.
