So, you made it this far, huh?

Kudos on making it this late into the fantasy season, but if you're going to win the Shiva and badger your friends for the next year, you're going to need some backup.

Whether you're the owner of an injured wideout like Dwayne Bowe or you're looking to play the matchups in Week 15, here are three under-the-radar wide receivers who will add some points to your lineup this weekend.


Rod Streater, Oakland Raiders

Rod Streater is seeing a ton of looks from Carson Palmer of late and his stats back it up.

Streater now has at least 90 yards receiving in consecutive games, including a TD against the Cleveland Browns in Week 13.

He amassed 100 yards on a solid Denver Broncos secondary last weekend and has a great matchup against a Kansas City Chiefs defense that has allowed 25 passing touchdowns.

Having been the most-targeted wideout for the Raiders in Week 14, I like Streater's chances for a solid day at home on Sunday.


Donnie Avery, Indianapolis Colts

Normally I wouldn't advise someone to go with a WR against the Houston Texans defense, but after seeing the Texans get shredded by Tom Brady and an average Pats' receiving corp, I like Avery this week.

Next to Reggie Wayne, Avery has been targeted the second-most from Andrew Luck (109 targets). It's a bit scary that the two have connected on just 52 of those targets, but still, Avery has 706 yards and three touchdowns this season.

You can bet Houston will be set on taking Wayne out of the game, which gives Avery the opportunity for a big day.

The Texans have surrendered 24 passing TDs and that number will be going up against the Colts in Week 15.

Jon Baldwin, Kansas City Chiefs

This goes out to all the Dwayne Bowe owners out there: Jon Baldwin is your best replacement on the Chiefs.

With Bowe out, Baldwin immediately comes to mind as the Chiefs' No. 1 red zone target, given his 6'4", 230-pound frame.

There's no evidence that Baldwin will be a solid option this week, other than his 37 yards and a touchdown in Week 13.

What I can tell you is that with Bowe out of the equation—for this week at least—Baldwin's size and talent make him an option for those of you in deeper leagues desperate from some sort of production out of the flex position.
