NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- As we enter Week 14 of the NFL season, Jim Cramer says it's all about getting home-field advantage through the playoffs.
"This is a weekend where even if you've won seven games, you must win now because home field is going to be gigantic for playoffs," he says. "Someone might say, 'who needs this game more than that game,' no -- everybody needs every game because home field is everything in the league this year."
The Seattle Seahawks (8-4) and the Green Bay Packers (9-3) are two teams that need to win very badly in order to get home field advantage, says Cramer. With that in mind, he stresses that fantasy football owners should play Green Bay players and anyone from Seattle this week, even those who aren't stars.
With many fantasy owners looking to beef up their teams as the playoffs start, Cramer acknowledges there's slim pickings on the waiver wire. Being as there aren't a lot of players left, it's important to know which guys to grab while owners still can.
So who are the hottest commodities that are still available on the waiver wire this week? Here are Jim Cramer's waiver wire picks for Week 14.
QUARTERBACK: Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals (8-3-1)
Andy Dalton completed 19 of 27 passes for 176 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in his team's Week 13 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-10).
"They need home field. I would actually risk Dalton, I really would."
If you can't get Dalton, Cramer also recommends Minnesota Vikings (5-7) quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. "I like Bridgewater. He's been putting up excellent numbers. People might want to think about him."
