CLEVELAND, OH – The fantasy playoffs have begun. Odds are if you are reading this, you survived Week 14 and are still in the running for a fantasy championship. Making the correct additions could be the difference down the stretch.

Here are the players worth adding this week:

DeAndre Washington (6%) – Washington finished with 96 yards from scrimmage on Sunday. He had five receptions and was heavily involved in the Raiders’ offense with Josh Jacobs (shoulder) sidelined. Washington is a must-add in all leagues and will be on the RB2 radar as long as Jacobs is out. 

A.J. Brown (26%) – Brown had the best game of his career on Sunday, finishing with five receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns. He has 333 yards receiving and three touchdowns in his last three games. Brown is a WR3 moving forward and is worth adding in all leagues.

Raheem Mostert (51%) – Mostert has 54 PPR points in his last two games. He’s been great for the 49ers’ offense and has scored three touchdowns over that span. Mostert was on this list last week. If you didn’t pick him up and he’s still available, then he’s worth claiming in all leagues.

John Ross (14%) – Ross caught 2-of-3 targets for 28 yards on Sunday in his first action since Week 4. Auden Tate has a serious knee injury, so Ross’ role should expand moving forward. He’s worth adding in 12-team leagues.

Patrick Laird (20%) – Laird finished with 10 PPR points in Week 14 on 19 total touches. He’s a safe flex option, especially in PPR leagues. Laird is a nice consolation prize if you miss out on Mostert and Washington.

Ryan Tannehill (48%) – Tannehill has scored 20 or more fantasy points in seven straight games. He threw for 391 yards and three touchdowns in the Titans’ blowout win over the Raiders. Tannehill is a low-end QB1 moving forward and worth claiming if you need help at quarterback.

Other players worth watching:

Adrian Peterson (39%), Ian Thomas (1%), Hayden Hurst (1%), Drew Lock (2%), Diontae Johnson (12%), Marcus Johnson (0%), Noah Fant (28%), Olamide Zaccheaus (0%), Russell Gage (9%), Boston Scott (0%).
