Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups, Week 13: Top adds to help your playoff chances
It's a must-win week for many of us — not technically the fantasy playoffs just yet, but basically the same experience. We can't very well leave a player on the wire when he's seeing this sort of volume. But Knight ran impressively (and angrily) against Chicago; he and Ty Johnson might very well be the 1-2 punch for New York in this week's matchup at Minnesota. Both Hasty and Henderson deserve a look from fantasy managers this week, but this is not an empty-the-wallet situation. He's definitely on the 16-team and superflex radar.wftv.com
