Week 13: Waiver Wire Work

Each week, we help improve your fantasy outlook by recommending the best players to add and drop. Here are some players you should consider adding who are probably available on your league's free-agent list, and others you should cut loose if you need to make extra room on your roster.


Jay Cutler, QB, Broncos (Owned in 3.0 percent of ESPN.com leagues): He finally gets the chance to start after an impressive preseason and the continued erratic play of Jake Plummer. Cutler is certainly worth adding, because he will be a star one day. He's confident and has an approach that he can make things happen, even against tough opposition. But as a rookie, that kind of mentality could lead to turnovers, and he has yet to show how his decision-making skills will hold up under pressure during the regular season. Starting any first-year quarterback is risky, as there will certainly be an on-field learning process, so don't expect immediate quality contributions from Cutler. But if you're desperate for QB help, take the shot.
