As the fantasy playoffs approach, each waiver wire add could be that one piece that makes or breaks a playoff appearance down the stretch. Here are three wide receivers that could make an impact for your team to fill in for an injury or a player on a bye week.

Mitchell Trubisky has been a fantasy stud over the last few weeks and Miller has seen the benefits. Miller has had two touchdowns in the past three weeks and exploded for 122 yards in the Bears win against the Detroit Lions in Week 10. With Trubisky and the Bears offense firing on all cylinders, Miller should continue to benefit even against a tough Vikings defense that might be more worried about Allen Robinson.
2. Christian Kirk, WR, Arizona Cardinals (33% Owned)

Kirk has had an up-and-down year from a fantasy perspective but has had at least six targets in the last four games, so the opportunity is there. He has a very favorable matchup against the porous Oakland Raiders defense upcoming. Expect Josh Rosen and the Cardinals to be able to move the ball more freely now with the resurgence of David Johnson. Kirk should be one of the many benefactors.
1. Willie Snead, WR, Baltimore Ravens (29% Owned)

Snead has enjoyed the most opportunity of anyone on this list, garnering 10-plus targets in two of his last four games. Coming off a bye week, Snead will be well rested against a terrible Bengals secondary that got absolutely torched for 51 points by the Saints in Week 10. Whether it's Lamar Jackson or Joe Flacco starting at quarterback, Snead should get plenty of looks.
