The 2011 NFL regular season is coming to an end.

That means that your fantasy season should be nearing the playoffs, if they haven't started already.

The entire season comes down to this, which means now is the most important time to make sure you have the best players available starting each and every week.

Here is a breakdown of the wide receiver position and three explosive players who need to start this weekend.

Titus Young (Detroit Lions)

With Calvin Johnson drawing so much attention, Titus Young has really started to emerge as a big-play threat for the Lions over recent weeks.

Last week, Young managed 87 yards and a touchdown. The week before, he put up 60 receiving yards.

Young has drawn comparisons to DeSean Jackson from the Eagles. He is a speedy receiver and a big-play threat.

He has a good chance to break another big play or two this weekend against the Oakland Raiders.

With his improved production over the past few weeks, he is a solid start as a No. 2 wide receiver.

Laurent Robinson (Dallas Cowboys)

Miles Austin may be back and starting for the Cowboys, but Robinson should remain on your fantasy roster as a starter.

Just look at his production last week against the Giants. He put up 137 yards and a touchdown with Austin back in the lineup.

Robinson is on a hot streak. He has caught eight touchdowns in the team's last seven games.

The Cowboys are matched up with the 27th-ranked Tampa Bay Bucanneers' passing defense this weekend.

Robinson may not put up the same stats as last week, but he will still have a good showing.

Percy Harvin (Minnesota Vikings)

With Adrian Peterson returning, Percy Harvin will see many more reps at receiver instead of out of the backfield this weekend.

It couldn't come at a better time for the playmaking wide receiver.

The Vikings face off against the New Orleans Saints this weekend. The Saints have struggled in the secondary this season, ranking 30th in the league in terms of stopping the pass.

The only real threat the Vikings have in the pass game is Harvin. He has been consistent the last few weeks and is clearly Ponder's favorite target.

He has 32 catches and five touchdowns over the span of the last four games.

He'll have another big one this weekend.
