By now you should have a pretty good idea if your team will be in the running this season. Barring freak injuries or suspensions, your roster will remain the same as you just tinker with it to make it as strong as possible.
Each week new options are popping up and strengthening your bench for the future is most certainly a priority you should be focusing on.
To help you do so, here are some waiver wire options that you might want to take a look at before your league counterparts can beat you to the punch.
Each and every year there are a few guys that lay around on the waiver wire for a few weeks before exploding onto the scene and becoming fantasy legends like Ryan Grant from a year ago.
It's important you keep evaluating your talent each week and don't be afraid to drop someone on your roster that has been getting by on name recognition alone.
Brad Johnson Cowobys, QB - The Golden Boy down in Big D will be missing the next four weeks with a broken finger, giving this old man one more chance to shine.
Brad Johnson is certainly not a mobile quarterback and really doesn't have too much athleticism in general. But he's been through the wars, won a Super Bowl and is the definition of a crafty veteran.
He spent time with Randy Moss up in Minnesota and knows what it takes to keep a guy like T.O. healthy.
Matt Ryan Falcons, QB - Watching him absolutely torch a depleted Bears secondary was enough for me to proclaim this kid is ready for the NFL.
He's poised, accurate and fearless in the pocket, stepping up to make some very big throws with the pressure in his face. With a star in the making WR in Roddy White, Ryan could be in for a very nice second half of the season.
Dominic Rhodes Colts, RB - In one game the Colts lost starting running back Joseph Addai and rookie third stringer, Mike Hart. This left Rhodes to shoulder the load and he filled in admirably.
Addai's injury isn't nearly as serious as Hart's is, but you have to expect the hamstring will bother him for at least the next week or two.
Rhodes knows the Indy system and can thrive in it. He might only be fantasy relevant for the next week or two, but there's nothing wrong with trying to strike while the iron is hot.
Warrick Dunn Bucs, RB - A member of the RBBC down in Tampa, Dunn has defied logic and managed to produce regardless of how many touches he receives.
Coach Jon Gruden isn't earning too many points with fantasy owners with the split carries, but they're winning and aren't likely to discontinue this strategy anytime soon.
But in deeper leagues, Dunn could be a nice pick.
Kevin Walter Texans, WR - Well, now that Matt Schaub is finally awake, healthy and ready to start playing in 2008, Walter should most certainly be on your radar.
Whether you realize it or not, this Texans team has the potential to be a very high octane offense and it's been on full display the past two weeks.
And Walter has benefited tremendously, earning his fair share of looks and making the most of them.
Steve Smith Giants, WR - He caught nine balls last night for 94 yds and was a focal point of Eli Manning's throughout he contest.
It's taken some time to get Smith going, but after catching seven passes against the Bengals in Week 3, he's finally getting into the rhythm of this offense. Manning trusts him and could eventually become a younger, better version of Amani Toomer.
Donte' Stallworth Browns, WR - The Browns of 2007 made a surprise appearance last night against the Giants and if this kind of resurgence continues, Stallworth will officially land back on the map of fantasy existence.
With Browns TE Kellen Winslow out with an undisclosed injury, Stallworth will start seeing more looks in an offense that has potential to light up the scoreboard every single weekend.
