There is perhaps nothing more important in fantasy Football than the waiver wire. It's where owners go to seek replacements for their injured players and find hidden gems like these. A good waiver wire strategy is absolutely key for those fantasy teams looking to contend for a championship. Here are five players who should be added in all fantasy leagues that will immediately improve your team and help you compete for a championship.

1. DuJuan Harris (31.4% Ownership, ESPN)

The 49ers running back went off against the Saints in week 9 and manage to score 17 fantasy points through a combination of the running and passing game.

With Hyde's status uncertain, it would be wise for fantasy owners to scoop up Harris. Even when Hyde comes back, Harris has likely carved out a role for himself in the 49ers offense in week 10and in the future.

2. Kapri Bibbs (4.4% Ownership, ESPN)

According to head coach Gary Kubiak, Bibbs earned a bigger role in the Broncos offense after scoring on a 69 yard touchdown against the Raiders. If Booker gets injured, Bibbs will immediately take the reigns at the starting running back position. Even if that doesn't happen, Bibbs has likely earned himself a bigger role in the Broncos passing game and a claim on fantasy waiver wires.

3. Quinton Patton (0.4% Ownership, ESPN)

Quinton surprised everyone by recording more than 100 yards receiving against the Saints in week 9.

Patton led the team in receiving and is beginning to emerge as a major target within the San Francisco offense. Patton has value in fantasy leagues as a player who should get a lot of targets with the 49ers almost always playing from behind. He's barely owned by anybody and should be available on most waiver wires.

4. Dion Lewis (30.1% Ownership, ESPN)

This sneaky pickup has a huge potential fantasy benefit. When Lewis was healthy last season, he played a big role in a dynamic Patriots offense. If Lewis is available in your leagues, it would be wise to pick him up immediately, especially with such scarce running back depth across fantasy leagues.

5. C.J. Fiedorowicz (11.6% Ownership, ESPN)

I've already recommended adding him and I'm going to do so again after his bye week. The tight end position is fraught with inconsistency, but Fiedorowicz has actually received a decent number of targets every week for the past four weeks. Those targets have led to three touchdowns in his last five weeks. Can somebody please tell me why more people don't own him? Grab him from the waiver wire if you can.
