How would you like answer to all of life's burning questions? I bet you would. Well, you will have to settle for this week's best-case scenarios from the fantasy waiver wire. 

We all have problems. If it isn't injuries and other miserable maladies, it's players that aren't living up to their potential. I could live with such things if it were so close to playoff time. 

If you are in need of a surge in production, you have come to the right place. We have some fine options that will deliver star-like results in week 13. 

Vince Young

You have just enough time to get your hands on the best waiver wire option before Thursday night's game. 

Young is still available in a heap of leagues and that's troubling considering the poise he has shown in each game. The Eagles backup keeps getting better and will surely have his best game yet against the Seahawks

With Michael Vick being one of the most brittle players in football, it would be smart to hold onto Young even when Vick returns. 

Roy Helu

The Redskins have been running a back field by committee for far too long. Helu step forward as the starter and man who will get the bulk of the touches. 

Sure, he will have to face the Jets' defense on Sunday. Helu proved that he has the speed and elusiveness to get solid points on just about any team. 

Johnny Knox

Jay Cutler's demise was supposed to kill the production of anyone needed to be passed the ball. Instead, Knox has flourished with fellow second-teamer Caleb Hanie. 

You should bank on Hanie looking for Knox all game as he is obviously more comfortable getting him the ball over all others.
