We have finally reached the fantasy football playoffs, which also bring the end of bye weeks.

With that in mind, the players to add section gives a few players who can be directly inserted into starting lineups along with some of the highest-upside backup players in case something happens to the usual starter. The five players to cut are a mix of players with reduced roles and those with bad playoff matchups.

Like last week and the week before, the players to buy low and sell high will focus on players from a dynasty perspective, taking into account what roster changes could occur between now and next September. All references to cap hits, salary cap space and potential unrestricted free agents come courtesy of the data available at Over The Cap.

If you can still trade in a re-draft, the Week 9 edition of this piece focused on players with good and bad fantasy playoff matchups.

FIVE PLAYERS TO ADD

1. RB Ty Johnson, New York Jets

Frank Gore exited early from the Jets game, making way for Johnson to come in and take the reins for the Jets. The second-year back then proceeded to put up great numbers, with 104 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries — the Jets' only 100-yard rushing game of the season.

New York has the Seattle Seahawks next week, and the Seahawks just gave up 135 yards to Wayne Gallman. Johnson’s fantasy potential will largely depend on whether Gore is ready to return next week. If not, Johnson can be inserted into starting lineups.

2. RB D’Onta Foreman, Tennessee Titans

Depending on your league's size and the number of bench spots, you might actually have more bench spots than you need at this point of the season. You might not need Ty Johnson, for example, if you have enough starting-caliber running backs. Instead of rostering these kinds of players, it might be better to pick up someone with a very high upside in case someone gets hurt.
