The Fantasy Football playoffs started last week in most leagues with a great week to watch football but a bizarre week by fantasy standards. There were some critical injuries and some games radically affected by weather which resulted in some strangely skewed results. If your team is still left with something to play for this week, there are some adjustments that may need to be made due to injury, matchups, or opportunity.

If you’re looking to make a move, make sure to check out our top ten waiver wire picks for this week. Throughout the season, we have provided the top ten pickups each week with a quick rundown of the opportunities in front of the players and the upside they represent. We’ve got all your fantasy football coverage all week at Fansided’s fantasy page where you’ll find continuing coverage and analysis to help you get the win you need in week 15.

All players on this list or in the “best of the rest” on the final page are available in at least 50% of ESPN leagues as of Monday and their ownership percentages are included in parentheses. That means that some of the players on the list in the past (last week’s post available here) like Andre Brown, Donald Brown, Rashad Jennings, Nick Foles, Coby Fleener, Riley Cooper, Jarrett Boykin, Keenan Allen (pictured above), Zac Stacy, Harry Douglas, Jordan Reed, Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Cameron, Julius Thomas, and Chris Ivory are no longer eligible to appear even though they still make good pickups if they’re available.

If you’re not sure about your waiver claim or want some personalized advice, feel free to ask me on twitter @ZT_Sports or include the question in a comment at the bottom of the page. I’ll do my best to answer all your questions as quickly as possible.

All scoring references are from NFL.com’s default scoring which simply is used to give a common baseline to work from. Adjust appropriately your team and league scoring system. Here are my top ten additions headed into week 15:
