Do you envy your league mates at the top that have already secured a fantasy playoff berth? You should. Fight through these last five to six fantasy weeks to try and earn yourself one of those last few playoff spots up for grabs. Here are some fantasy waiver wire additions that may be of aid to you.

Carson Palmer
Palmer continues to add higher value than he has over the last three to four seasons. The offense isn’t as potent as it was a year ago or under Bruce Arians in Indianapolis. They’ve simplified things to lessen the pressure on Palmer, which has benefited the team in the wins/loss column. There is always one or two plays a game where Palmer still lets the ball go deep down the field and has had success.

Adrian Peterson
Some owners were quick to already land AP a week ago when rumors were circulating on his current situation. Now that he has his off the field issues taken care of, it will be up to the commissioner to rule where to go from here. This is an odd issue for the league once again but more than likely AP will be on the field before the season concludes.

Toby Gerhart
It’s likely doubtful that Gerhart will regain the starting role over Denard Robinson, but Gerhart could have goal line fantasy value for Jacksonville. Storm Johnson filled in that role when Gerhart was out with injury and scored a couple of touchdowns. Gerhart was used lightly last week but he looked to have a burst for the first time this season.

Mike Evans
Boy oh boy, I profiled Evans last week as owners were pushing him to the waiver wire. It was a classic case of not waiting long enough to see heightened possible fantasy value. Rush to the wire now and bid, bid, away.

Taylor Gabriel
Gabriel’s value is one that could go one of two ways in a few weeks. With Josh Gordon returning the Browns will likely finally open up the offense downfield. That could open up even more opportunities for Gabriel, as the Browns have been one of the worst teams in football for fantasy value at wide receiver or running back this season.

Jordan Matthews
Matthews was the preseason hype fantasy draftee that quickly fizzled below the hype. Now with Mark Sanchez at quarterback owners can truly expect Matthews to have some sort of fantasy value. He may not register the type of numbers he did a week ago against Houston, but he offers great depth to sub out a non-performing fifth wide receiver currently on your team.
