The fantasy football regular season is approaching its dramatic end, leaving many owners scrambling for all-important playoff spots and first-round byes when the postseason begins. Wins and losses could be the difference between a few more weeks of fantasy football fun or a frustrating winter with the bitter taste of defeat.

At this point in the season, the waiver wire should only be used in emergency situations. Hopefully, the roster you’ve spent all season constructing is quality enough to not need a last-minute savior to rescue the season. Those who had their Thanksgiving ruined by Stefon Diggs’ absence for the Minnesota Vikings or Andrew Luck’s concussion for the late Thanksgiving game against the Pittsburgh Steelers will need to pay attention to these five sleepers who could bring big points on Sunday afternoon.
