The NFL season is getting closer to its conclusion, meaning that your fantasy leagues are nearing the playoffs.

Now is the time to finalize your rosters and get set for the final push in your league.

Everybody knows the big names like Calvin Johnson and Wes Welker. This isn't about them.

We are here to help you find those lesser known wide receivers who are shooting up the charts. These are guys who'll explode in these final few weeks.

 

Denarius Moore (Oakland Raiders)

Denarius Moore and Carson Palmer are starting to get on the same page. It's still a little risky to go out and pick up Palmer. He still isn't at the top of his game.

The wide receivers won't suffer from that.

In the last two weeks, Moore has nine catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns.

Moore has big play ability and appears to be Palmer's favorite target. Expect more big things as the two become accustomed to one another.

 

Laurent Robinson (Dallas Cowboys)

Where did this guy come from?

With all of the attention focused towards Miles Austin and Dez Bryant, Laurent Robinson is quietly having a pretty good season.

He isn't the most consistent player on the field, but he does make big plays for the Cowboys now and again.

When he does, they are typically huge. If you need a flex guy, he is worth a look.

 

Earl Bennett (Chicago Bears)

All season the Bears' primary receiver has been Matt Forte.

Finally, it seems they have found an actual wide receiver who can be Jay Cutler's primary target.

Over the last two weeks Bennett has caught nine passes for 176 yards and a touchdown. He had just 14 catches for 196 prior to that.

The Bears may have finally found something here. I don't think they'll go away from it for the remainder of the season.
