Week 17 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 10* Players Available on the Waiver Wire

Yeah, Mr. Peterson - your fantasy owners feel your pain this week.

Over at Footballguys, we've been churning out content since June and, like you, we're all ready for a break and some time to remember what our kids' names are and whether we're married or not.

However, while many teams locked up the end of their season this past weekend, more than a few leagues take it all the way into this, the final week, of the NFL regular season.

So once more into the breach, dear friends, as we scratch and claw our way for an edge in what is often the most risky of weeks, when teams flirt with sitting players for a little extra rest or to find out what some promising rookies might be able to do in a real game.

As we've said every week, the pickings, they be slim on the waiver wires and this week we have the added bonus of one less stud on some owner's roster as Adrian Peterson has been lost for the season (and possibly into the 2012 season) with an ACL tear as well as a rumored MCL tear as well.

So if you're a Peterson owner, you have my sympathy. I hope you limped into the playoffs anyway and that you find this column useful.

This week, I've arranged the slides into positions. We'll take a look at each offensive slot, who is there and what chance they have of saving your hide. The asterisk in the title? That's your Bakers Dozen type bonus guy. Whichever guy does best this week? THAT'S the guy I meant.
