The fantasy playoffs are finally here and that will magnify every decision as owners struggle to decide which of their players will produce the highest outputs. In some cases, players from the waiver wire are actually better than the ones in starting lineups. Do not neglect the waiver wire in week 14 and make sure that you try to pick up some of these players if you can.

1. Ladarius Green (11.6% Ownership, ESPN)

The Steelers tight end exploded for 110 receiving yards and a touchdown against the Giants last week.

He's finally healthy and flashing the potential that has made him a sleeper fantasy pick for the past few years. Owners can't sleep on him anymore, and should look to add him before Green goes up against a Bills defense that will struggle to defend Green, who is a major matchup problem.

2. Mike Gillislee (25.4% Ownership, ESPN)

It's absolutely insane that this guy isn't owned in every single fantasy league.

LeSean McCoy might dominate the backfield in touches, but Gillislee will immediately become a top ten fantasy back if the injury prone McCoy ever gets hurt. Even when McCoy is healthy, Gillislee is a fringe flex play who scored two touchdowns against the Raiders last week. Get him on your team!

3. Adam Thielen (16.9% Ownership, ESPN)

The Vikings wide receiver has dominated the team lead in targets and has quickly become a far bigger part of the offense.

Stefon Diggs might be back this week, but he will face Jalen Ramsey, one of the better cornerbacks in the league. That should open the door for Adam Thielen to have another decent fantasy game.

4. Jaguars D/ST. (8.4% Ownership, ESPN)

It's really hard to recommend the defense of a team that is currently 2-10, but this is definitely the week to play them. The Jaguars have been holding opponents to low point totals lately and nobody is better at scoring less points than Sam Bradford and the Vikings offense. Stream the Jags from the waiver wire if you are looking for a defense this week.

5. Taylor Gabriel (36.5% Ownership, ESPN)

How is this guy not more than 50% owned? He's scored double digit point totals in three of the last four weeks and had a touchdown called back in the Chiefs game last week. Gabriel has become an integral part of the Falcons quick passing attack and could easily become an integral part of a championship fantasy team. Grab him off the waiver wire while the rest of your league is still asleep.
