Many fantasy teams have started or are just beginning their fantasy playoffs and for a team that has been carried all season by Matt Forte, it may seem as if it’s over. But all hope is not lost because of his back-up, Marion Barber, and there are a couple of other possibilities that could help lead your team to the promised land.

Beyond picking up free-agents, there are probably a few players on your bench that have been sitting there in non-bye weeks that you can’t seem to pull the trigger on that keep outperforming your expectations like QB Tim Tebow has done. At some juncture, we have to say that between his running ability and now his throwing (no turnovers) that he’s a better fit for your team’s performance than Tony Romo, Mark Sanchez and Matt Ryan.

Here’s a look at some pick-ups for week 14:

RB Marion Barber, Chicago Bears

Although the Bears are having trouble with Caleb Hanie moving the ball, Barber should be picked up immediately whether you need him or not. He’ll be getting the load of the carries and swing out passes and will put up numbers. Even if you don’t need him, get him anyway so that your opponents can’t.

WR Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos

The Tebow effect has even made draft busts like Thomas come alive as he had his best pro game last week against the Vikings, routinely getting open deep. The Broncos don’t throw a lot, but a high percentage of the passes go deep into a wide open secondary with safeties cheating for the run.

RB Roy Helu, Washington Redskins

It’s hard to keep up with what Mike Shanahan is going to do at the RB position, but two straight 100 yard games with a TD in each make it look like Helu is the guy moving forward. He’s likely not to be available in most leagues, but is someone that should move to the starting role against a shaky Patriots defense this week. – Micah Roberts
