Even getting to this point is worth a self-congratulatory pat on the back. But now that we're here, we can't entertain any possibility except winning the whole shebang.
This Thursday article is our second waiver wire piece of the week, intended to give a broad overview of players worth fantasy consideration. Every Monday, Kevin Payne's first edition of the Waiver Wire series gives a rundown the top names.
