Week 12 Waiver Wire: Vince Young and Others to Add

John Rozum@Rozum27Correspondent INovember 22, 2011

This late in the fantasy football season the number of legit players to add has significantly decreased, so choosing more carefully is a necessity.

That being said, here are two players and one defense to add if you're looking for some help:

Vince Young: QB, Eagles

According to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles QB Michael Vick's status isn't set yet:

"'If he is healthy, Michael Vick will start at quarterback Sunday against the New England Patriots,' Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday."

"Vick’s two broken ribs kept him out of Sunday night’s game, so the 'if' is significant."

That said, even if Vick suits up on Sunday he has been prone to injuries this season. Vince Young could get some playing time any way you slice it.

Whether Vick plays then gets hurt again or doesn't play at all, Young isn't a bad pickup as he performed rather well in Philadelphia's Week 11 win over the Giants. At the very least, keep an eye on Vick's situation because Young could be a solid late season add.

Donald Driver: WR, Packers

Donald Driver may not be having one of his more productive seasons, but it's kind of hard when there's other targets such as Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

However, if you're in need of a receiver for the backup No. 3/flex spot, Driver can only help. You know Green Bay is gonna be throwing the ball all game long so the odds of Donald doing some work is better than most.

If you're in a league that earns points for receptions, Driver only becomes that much more appealing.

Seattle Seahawks Defense

In their last two games the Seattle Seahawks have only allowed a total of 24 points, their opponents in those two games being Baltimore and St. Louis. Although holding the Rams to seven points is expected, keeping the Ravens at 17 was quite impressive.

Additionally, Seattle ranks No. 8 against the run and No. 15 against the pass for a combined total of 333 yards allowed per game. Not bad for a team with virtually no offense.

If you're in the need of a No. 2 defense or just want to add some depth to your team, Seattle isn't a bad choice by any means.
