We are officially heading down the stretch of the 2012 fantasy football season. Injuries are piling up and rosters are getting changed all over the place, so every fantasy owner will be looking for that dark horse who will be able to lead the team to a title.
The playoff picture is beginning to form, and there are a ton of teams hovering around .500 that are still very much in the running. With injuries and other complications that always start to occur around this time, some less-heralded players are seeing doors open for them.
It's hard to tell which players will take full advantage of opportunities, but that's what I'm going to look at here. These are five dark-horse candidates you want on your fantasy football roster for the rest of the season.
