These next few weeks in fantasy football leagues are when we separate the pretenders from the contenders.
With multiple teams having their bye weeks, you might have some holes to fill out your roster. If wide receiver (WR) is one of them, here's a list of five widely available players that might help you out, either just for a few weeks or for the remainder of the season.
All of these players are available in over 50 percent of Yahoo! leagues.
Jeremy Maclin, Victor Cruz, Wes Welker, DeSean Jackson, Hakeem Nicks, Stevie Johnson and Michael Crabtree will all be on the bench this week. So if you have not grabbed a WR replacement, you need to do so now.

Yes, I know Matt Moore is the quarterback. But the Denver Broncos don't have a great pass defense, so some reasonable production can be expected from Bess.

He has to share the stage with Lee Evans and Anquan Boldin, but that three touchdown performance against the St. Louis Rams has me wondering why is he still so widely available. If you can snag him in your league, do it now.

Demaryius Thomas was a first round draft pick of the Denver Broncos. Several injuries have kept him off the field last year and this year. He is set to return to the lineup this week against the Miami Dolphins.
With Tim Tebow now at quarterback for the Broncos, and the Dolphin's secondary a little thin due to a hamstring injury of Chris Clemons, Thomas might be poised to have a breakout performance. And with trade of Brandon Lloyd, there is a chance that Thomas could become the Bronco's top-targeted wide receiver.
