This is it. For most Fantasy leagues, this is the final week of the regular season. There's likely a lot on the line in Week 14.

You could be fighting for a bye heading into the Fantasy playoffs. Or you could be trying to secure a playoff berth. Maybe you just want to play spoiler to keep someone out of the playoffs. Whatever your motivation, this might be your last chance to tweak your roster.

Now, there likely isn't a must-start Fantasy option on the waiver wire this week. Unlike Week 13, where guys like Jamaal Williams and Sony Michel went right into your starting lineup, we aren't as lucky for this scoring period. But there are still plenty of quality players who could help you.

Remember, there are still four teams on a bye (Indianapolis, Miami, Philadelphia and New England) and plenty of injuries. Many Fantasy managers have holes to fill in their lineups, and we're here to help. This is also a great week for streaming DSTs.

So let's get started with the players who can help you in your playoff push. Hopefully you succeed and are still alive in your Fantasy leagues in Week 15.

Editor's note: For this waiver wire column, we are only looking at players rostered in less than 65 percent of CBS Sports leagues.

Week 14 Waivers
WAIVER WIRE
Quarterbacks
  • Injuries: Aaron Rodgers (toe), Joe Burrow (finger), Jalen Hurts (ankle), Taysom Hill (finger), Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral), Daniel Jones (neck), Tyrod Taylor (wrist), Justin Fields (ribs), Andy Dalton (hand) and Mike Glennon (concussion).
  • On a bye: Jalen Hurts, Carson Wentz, Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones.
  • Check to see if available: Ryan Tannehill (74 percent rostered). It's been a bad year for Tannehill, but hopefully he can finish the season strong. Julio Jones (hamstring) is expected to return this week, and A.J. Brown (chest) should be back in Week 16. I don't mind Tannehill as a low-end starter in Week 14 against the Jaguars.
  • Drop candidates: Carson Wentz (94 percent rostered) and Tua Tagovailoa (67 percent). Wentz isn't worth holding during his bye week. He's scored 12 Fantasy points or less in three of his past four games, and the Colts offense belongs to Jonathan Taylor, not Wentz. ... Tagovailoa has the chance for a strong finish, but he's not someone you have to stash in most Fantasy leagues when he's on a bye. You should, however, pick him up again prior to Week 15 when he faces the Jets.

Hill is expected to play through the finger injury he sustained in Week 13 against Dallas, and hopefully he continues to produce as a Fantasy quarterback. It was ugly how he scored 24 Fantasy points against the Cowboys -- he had four interceptions -- but he also ran for 101 yards. His rushing ability makes him a potential top-10 quarterback on a weekly basis, and he's worth starting in all leagues against the Jets in Week 14. The Jets allow an average of 24.3 Fantasy points per game against opposing quarterbacks for the year.

Newton will remain Carolina's starter in Week 14 against Atlanta, and we'll see how he does with a new play caller after Joe Brady was fired. Hopefully, interim offensive coordinator Jeff Nixon will lean on Newton, especially with Christian McCaffrey (ankle) out. Newton scored 29 Fantasy points against Washington in Week 11 and was benched after scoring just five Fantasy points at Miami in Week 12. Against the Falcons, I expect Newton to be closer to his production against Washington, and he should be considered a low-end starter in all leagues. Atlanta allows an average of 27.4 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks for the season.

Roethlisberger has scored at least 20 Fantasy points in three of his past four games, and The Athletic suggests the Steelers offense should run through their quarterback. We'll see if that works, but Roethlisberger is worth consideration as a streamer for at least Week 14 at Minnesota. The Vikings allow an average of 24.8 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks for the year.

Heinicke has scored more than 18 Fantasy points just once since Week 7, but I'm going to give him the chance as a streamer again in Week 14 against Dallas in what hopefully turns into a shootout. Heinicke did just have two touchdowns in Week 13 at Las Vegas, and the Cowboys have allowed three of their past five opposing quarterbacks to score at least 24 Fantasy points.

Garoppolo just had 299 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions at Seattle in Week 13, and hopefully he can build off that performance in Week 14 at Cincinnati. The Bengals are beat up defensively, and Garoppolo is worth using as a streaming option in deeper leagues. He also has a favorable upcoming schedule against Atlanta in Week 15 and Houston in Week 17.

Running Backs
  • Injuries: Joe Mixon (neck), Austin Ekeler (undisclosed), D'Andre Swift (shoulder), Alvin Kamara (knee), Dalvin Cook (shoulder), Elijah Mitchell (concussion), Jeff Wilson (knee), Damien Harris (hamstring), Melvin Gordon (hip), Kareem Hunt (calf), Miles Sanders (ankle), Kenyan Drake (ankle), Michael Carter (ankle), J.D. McKissic (neck), Chase Edmonds (ankle), Derrick Henry (foot), Jordan Howard (knee), Alex Collins (abdomen), David Johnson (illness), Ronald Jones (illness), Jeremy McNichols (concussion) and Trey Sermon (ankle).
  • On a bye: Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson, Brandon Bolden, Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Jordan Howard, Kenneth Gainwell and Myles Gaskin.
  • Check to see if available: Sony Michel (81 percent rostered), Michael Carter (78 percent), Boston Scott (72 percent), Chase Edmonds (72 percent) and Dontrell Hilliard (68 percent). Michel could once again be the lead back for the Rams with Darrell Henderson not at 100 percent because of a thigh injury. Michel just had 24 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown, as well as three catches for 8 yards on four targets, against Jacksonville. ... Carter could return in Week 15, and he's worth stashing now if he's available. ... We'll see how Sanders and Howard are coming off Philadelphia's bye in Week 14, but you might want to stash Scott just in case he's the lead rusher for the Eagles due to injuries. ... Edmonds could return this week after a three-game absence, and we'll see what his role is in tandem with James Conner. Most likely, Edmonds will play in a secondary role, but he's worth adding in all leagues. ... Hilliard should remain a solid complementary option to D'Onta Foreman, but hopefully Hilliard remains ahead of McNichols on the depth chart when he's healthy. In two games with the Titans, Hilliard has averaged 16.5 PPR points and has plenty of potential moving forward.
  • Drop candidates: Devin Singletary (83 percent rostered), Matt Breida (59 percent), Alex Collins (59 percent) and Ty Johnson (58 percent). The Bills backfield will continue to be frustrating, especially if Zack Moss remains part of the rotation with Singletary and Breida. Singletary has combined for 14 PPR points in his past three games, and Breida has seven PPR points or less in two of his past three outings. Buffalo also faces Tampa Bay, Carolina and New England in the next three games. ... Collins is likely behind Rashaad Penny and Adrian Peterson moving forward, and Collins is not 100 percent. He's not worth trusting in most leagues right now. ... Johnson hasn't benefited with Carter out, and Johnson has combined for just 16 PPR points in his past four games.

Foreman should remain the lead running back for the Titans until Henry is back, and Foreman has the chance for a huge game in Week 14 against Jacksonville. It would be great if Foreman does what Henry typically does against the Jaguars, and Henry had 632 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in his past five games against Jacknsonville. Prior to his bye in Week 13, Foreman had 19 carries for 109 yards, as well as one catch for 3 yards and a lost fumble at New England. He'll share touches with Hilliard and potentially McNichols, but I like Foreman as a starter in all leagues against Jacksonville this week.

Hasty might be the lead running back for the 49ers this week at Cincinnati with Mitchell and Wilson hurt. While neither has been ruled out yet, you might want to take a chance on Hasty in case he's headed for a big workload. Keep in mind that Mitchell has four games in a row with at least 20 total touches. If Wilson (41 percent rostered) is able to play and Mitchell is out, I would like Wilson ahead of Hasty, but Mitchell is the top guy by far when he's healthy. This is a situation to monitor throughout the week.

Penny looked like Seattle's best running back in Week 13 against San Francisco, and hopefully he can be the top option for the Seahawks to close the season. He'll share touches with Adrian Peterson (24 percent rostered) and potentially Collins, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas, but I would gamble on Penny to see what happens. Against the 49ers, Penny had 10 carries for 35 yards, along with one catch for 27 yards on one target, and he led Seattle with a 40-percent snap share. Now, Homer and Peterson both scored, although Homer's touchdown was on a fake punt, but Penny should have the most upside. He's worth using as a flex in Week 14 at Houston.

We'll see how the Panthers plan to replace McCaffrey in Week 14 against Atlanta, and Chuba Hubbard and Abdullah should split the workload. Abdullah was used in the passing game in tandem with McCaffrey and has at least three catches in three of his past five games. In deep PPR leagues, Abdullah is worth adding, and he could be a flex play against the Falcons. I like Hubbard better without McCaffrey, but Abdullah should have a substantial role.

The Eagles have a bye in Week 14, but their backfield could be in flux for Week 15 when they return to action. Sanders, Howard and Scott could all be healthy then, or all three could still be dealing with some sort of ailment. Gainwell is gaining momentum and played well in Week 13 at the Jets with 12 carries for 54 yards and a touchdown, along with five catches for 33 yards on five targets. He now has eight catches for 65 yards on nine targets in his past two games, and he could be a flex in PPR, even when everyone is healthy. You might want to add Howard (28 percent rostered) also in case Sanders is out because Howard did well in place of Sanders earlier this year.

Coleman can be a flex in deeper leagues until Carter returns, even in a tough matchup in Week 14 against the Saints. In two games without Carter, Coleman has at least 70 total yards in each outing, including 27 carries and five catches on seven targets. It's risky to trust him, but in deeper formats, he could help you based on his 8.5 PPR points per game average in place of Carter.
WAIVER WIRE
Wide Receivers
  • Injuries:  Keenan Allen (COVID-19), Adam Thielen (ankle), Deebo Samuel (groin), Tee Higgins (ankle),  A.J. Brown (chest), Julio Jones (hamstring), Chase Claypool (toe), Calvin Ridley (personal), Corey Davis (groin), Allen Robinson (hamstring), Kenny Golladay (ribs), Kadarius Toney (quad), Sterling Shepard (quad), Will Fuller (finger) and Randall Cobb (groin).
  • On a bye: Michael Pittman, T.Y. Hilton, DeVonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle, DeVante Parker, Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor.
  • Check to see if available: Jarvis Landry (82 percent rostered), Michael Gallup (81 percent) and Calvin Ridley (74 percent). Landry faced Baltimore in Week 12 and had his best game of the season with six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets. Hopefully he can repeat that performance in the rematch this week. ... Gallup will lose production now that Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb are both back to full health, but Gallup still has at least eight targets in three games in a row and scored at least 14 PPR points in each of his past two outings. He can still have value as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. ... I'm hoping we get good news on Ridley soon, and he's worth stashing in leagues where you have an open roster spot. When active, he can still be a must-start Fantasy option in all leagues.
  • Drop candidates: Courtland Sutton (88 percent rostered), Marvin Jones (83 percent), Cole Beasley (81 percent), Emmanuel Sanders (81 percent) and Rashod Bateman (66 percent). Another week, another bad performance for Sutton with Jerry Jeudy on the field. Sutton has combined for 19 PPR points in his past five games, and he can't be trusted in Denver's run-first offense. ... Jones continues to struggle in Jacksonville and has now scored nine PPR points or less in six games in a row and eight times in his past nine outings. There's no way you can start him in the majority of leagues. ... Both Bills receivers are worth dropping, especially in non-PPR leagues. Sanders hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 5 and has combined for 31 PPR points in his past five games. Beasley hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 6 and has combined for just 20 PPR points in his past five games. I'd still hold Beasley in PPR leagues, but it's getting hard to even justify that as his production continues to dwindle. ... Bateman has struggled in his past three games with a combined 12 PPR points, and it's hard to trust him moving forward, especially with Lamar Jackson currently in a slump. Bateman will have better days ahead, but you can waive him in most Fantasy leagues now.

Jones is expected to return to action this week after being out since Week 9 with a hamstring injury, and hopefully the best of Jones is yet to come. He's been a disappointment this season, scoring more than eight PPR points just once with no touchdowns, but I'm hoping that he can finish strong, especially with A.J. Brown out for two more games. Jones should get the majority of targets from Ryan Tannehill, and Jones is worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues for Week 14 against Jacksonville.

He's scored at least 18 PPR points in two games in a row against Jacksonville and Tampa Bay with 19 targets, 17 catches, 192 yards and a touchdown over that span. He's also scored at least 12 PPR points in four of his past seven outings, and hopefully he can stay productive until Ridley returns -- if that happens at all. I like Gage as a borderline starter in all leagues against the Panthers this week.

Osborn has a big opportunity in front of him with Thielen banged up, and hopefully he can take advantage of it against the Steelers on Thursday night. If Thielen is out, Osborn should see a bump in targets, making him a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. He has five games this season with at least six targets, and Osborn has scored at least 14 PPR points in four of them. If Thielen is out as expected then you should be excited to start Osborn this week, and Thielen could miss several games if he is in fact dealing with a high-ankle sprain.

Boyd has seven games this season with at least six targets, and he scored at least 11 PPR points in six of those outings. Keep an eye on Higgins in practice this week, and Boyd would be a borderline starter in all formats if Higgins is out.

He has 19 targets in his past two games against Minnesota and the Rams, and he did well against the Vikings with four catches for 123 yards and a touchdown in Week 11. He's never going to be a high-volume catch guy, but he does have game-winning upside for Fantasy managers. He's worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues for Week 14 against Chicago.

Reynolds has 12 targets in his past two games for seven catches, 139 yards and a touchdown, and hopefully both guys continue to be favorite options for Jared Goff. Add St. Brown over Reynolds, but both can be considered No. 3 Fantasy receivers this week against Denver.

You won't feel comfortable with Smith as long as Taysom Hill is the quarterback, but he does have the chance for an increase in production with Deonte Harris (suspension) now out for the next three games.

We'll see if Keenan Allen is out for the Chargers in Week 14 against the Giants, and if that happens then Guyton and Josh Palmer (2 percent rostered) are worth a look in deeper leagues. Guyton just had a big game in Week 13 at Cincinnati with four catches for 90 yards and a touchdown on four targets, but that's his only game this season with more than seven PPR points. And Palmer hasn't scored more than nine PPR points this year either. They are desperation plays, but one of them could be needed if Allen can't play in Week 14.

Tight Ends
  • Injuries: Darren Waller (knee), Logan Thomas (knee) and Ricky Seals-Jones (hip).
  • On a bye: Dallas Goedert, Mike Gesicki, Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith and Jack Doyle.
  • Check to see if available: Pat Freiermuth (86 percent rostered). Freiermuth didn't score in Week 13 against Baltimore, but he should still remain a starting Fantasy tight end in most leagues. He's scored at least 11 PPR points in four of his past six games and should do well against the Vikings in Week 14.
  • Drop candidates: Hunter Henry (75 percent rostered), Logan Thomas (68 percent) and Tyler Higbee (67 percent). Henry heads into his bye on a three-game scoring drought, and he's scored nine PPR points or less in five of his past six games. He's not worth stashing. ... Thomas might be able to return from his knee injury, but he's not worth holding right now if you need a roster spot. ... Higbee has one touchdown since Week 5, and he's combined for just 10 PPR points in his past two games. He also had just four catches for 36 yards on six targets in Week 4 against Arizona, and he faces the Cardinals this week.

We'll see who starts at quarterback for the Bears this week at Green Bay, but hopefully the target volume remains the same for Kmet as we've seen lately. He had at least seven targets in three of his past four games and at least six targets in five of his past six outings. He scored 14 PPR points in two of those games, and if he's involved once again, he could be a low-end starter in deeper leagues.

Everett had a miserable game in Week 13 against San Francisco with four catches for 7 yards on six targets with two fumbles, but hopefully the Seahawks stick with him. He's had at least six targets in three of their past four games, and he has two games with 14 PPR points over that span. Unless we find out that Will Dissly is going to get a bigger role, you can use Everett as a low-end starter in deeper leagues.

We'll see if Seals-Jones is healthy, but otherwise pivot to John Bates (0 percent rostered) with Thomas likely out. Seals-Jones had a three-game stretch with at least nine PPR points when Thomas was out with a hamstring injury. Bates had three catches for 42 yards on four targets at Las Vegas in Week 13 when Thomas was hurt. Either starter would be a low-end Fantasy option in deeper leagues against Dallas this week.

Vannett is an option for deeper leagues, and he could see an uptick in targets with Harris out for the next three games. In the past two games with Adam Trautman (knee) out, Vannett caught a touchdown in Week 12 against Buffalo and had three catches for 48 yards on four targets against Dallas. He could be helpful in deeper formats this week against the Jets.
