If you’re still reading at this time of year, congratulations, and also, hard luck! You’re deep in the fantasy playoffs, but require IDP waiver wire advice — both an enviable and an unenviable situation.

Mario Addison, Carolina Panthers

Despite having 9.5 sacks on the season, Addison remains a fringe fantasy asset who can be found readily available on waiver wires across the country, which makes him an ideal pick-up candidate this week. We’re deep into the fantasy playoffs and huge upside adds are few and far between, so consistently productive players come to the fore. Addison has recorded a sack in each of his last three games, and while he doesn’t really bring much else to the table (he averages just 2.6 total tackles a game), his splash-play ability marks him out against his peers and is evidenced by him topping all 4-3 defensive ends in our pass-rush productivity metric over the last four games.
