As the season progresses it becomes harder and harder to find players on the waiver wire even worth a second glance.
By this point, all the good guys are gone and the only quarterbacks floating around out there are either injured or buried on the depth chart.
But my friends, please, do not worry.
Because 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.
Jerome Harrison Browns, RB - Harrison still resides below Jamal Lewis on the Browns' running back depth chart, so don't get too excited. So take this as more of a notice than a suggestion because Harrison does appear to possess enough potential to eventually become the Browns go-to-guy,
Even with the most limited of carries, Harrison has found a way to make an impact. On five carries against Denver he scooped up 48 yds (9.6 ypc), three carries against Buffalo turned into 80 yds (26.6 ypc) and a TD, and against Houston Harrison finished with seven carries for 31 yds (4.4 ypc).
Those of you in the deepest of leagues should take notice.
Maurice Morris Seahawks, RB - This season has been a complete bust for the Seahawks, primarily due to an extensive injury list that's only now starting to go down.
Morris has been working himself off of that list, making spot appearances here and there until last week when he cruised to 103 yds on 14 carries against a respectable Redskins defense.
Holmgren has a comfort zone with Mo', as does QB Matt Hasslebeck, making him the more obvious choice than free agent signee Julius Jones. If Hasslebeck can get the passing game going again, Mo' could evolve into a very dependable RB2 or flex option down the home stretch.
Domenik Hixon Giants, WR - This one is entirely dependent upon whether or not Plaxico Burress suits up this weekend against the Redskins.
With Plax out after the first series (absolutely killing many of you this weekend, myself included) against the Cardinals, Hixon stepped in and was a one man wrecking crew with over 200 yds of total offense.
He's been on our radar before, way back Week 5 against Seattle when he had a career day of 102 yds and a TD.
Keep your eyes on the headlines coming out of the Big Apple this week because if Plax is out, Hixon could be a sleeper you won't want to miss.
Carnell 'Cadillac' Williams Bucs, RB - Caddy' was on this list last week and will remain here to serve as a reminder of his value down the stretch.
Gruden wasted no time last week shaking the rust of the Caddy's wheels and gave him 16 total carries. Not a bad guy to have stashed on your bench for the remaining weeks.
Davone Bess Dolphins, WR - With Greg Camarillo officially done for the season, Bess has the opportunity to assume the 'out-of-nowhere' receiver position on this offense.
He stepped right up and hauled in five passes for 87 yds and is a great play the rest of the season because the Dolphins have a laughably easy schedule to finish up the year. At St. Louis, at Buffalo, 49ers at home and at Kansas City.
Deep ball anyone?
Jerramy Stevens Bucs, TE - A guy known more for his loudmouth antics off the field than his clutch-ability on it, Stevens has reemerged as a viable TE with the Bucs thanks in large part to QB Jeff Garcia.
The Bucs have a favorable remaining schedule and Stevens will have the opportunity to deliver.
