Week 17: Waiver Wire Work

In the final edition of Waiver Wire Work for 2006, we focus on players you might be considering for use in the last week of the season, while offering tips on who to release to make extra room on your roster for Week 17.


Kurt Warner, QB, Cardinals (Owned in 42.0 percent of ESPN.com leagues): He will start in the season finale against San Diego after rookie Matt Leinart suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. Warner is an adequate plug-in if your team is still alive and you don't have another dependable alternative. Warner did throw three TD passes in the season opener this year, but then his level of play fell off quickly and he was replaced by Leinart. Don't depend on him for anything more than respectable fantasy totals, and he should only be used as a desperation option.
