Injuries continue to be a huge factor this year and have affected some of the best players in the league. But even though these things can suck the life right out of your team, you deal with them and move on because, hey, this is fantasy football—not fantasy badminton.

Hopefully, you stashed a little depth on your squad that you can plug right in there—but what if you didn't?

This is where the all-important waiver wire comes in handy and why you need to know exactly who is worth picking up and who you can ignore as you head into your fantasy championship.
