Waiver Wire Pickups Week 15 As the playoffs officially begin for all fantasy football leagues, never could getting the right guy off the waiver wire be more important. Last week we made some great calls including: Nick Foles who had the 2nd most points of any quarterback for the week, Montell Owens who finished 11th for the week in fantasy points for running backs, Kai Forbath with a 5th place finish in kicker scoring, and the Cleveland Defense, who finished 2nd only to the impressive 41 point outing by the Seahawks against the Cardinals. Now more than ever you need players you can trust, but if injuries or lack of depth forces you to use a waiver wire player, we are here to help you pick the right guy. Quarterback Nick Foles – 8% owned – What a successful week for rookie quarterback Nick Foles. He finally lived up to his full potential as an NFL quarterback and not only did he score some decent fantasy points along the way, but his play helped the Eagles get a much needed win again...

I don't know. Maybe Nick "Shaggy" Foles is...
