If you are serious about winning your fantasy league football championship, stay on top of your fantasy football team throughout the year.
Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, KFFL brings you its Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, which breaks down players to pick up. Be aggressive when picking up fantasy football free agents. Even if you do not need a player, you can tuck him away for depth or block others from adding him to their fantasy football team.

Fantasy football free agents: Priority additions
The following players should be high on your radar and are worthy of being added immediately to your fantasy football team.
Josh Scobee, Jacksonville
Jaguars (36 percent)
Scobee doobie doo?
Scobee is owned in a lot of leagues, probably too many. He has just four makes out of his six field goal attempts in the last four games. He has connected on 14 extra points in that time, though. Still, he has just 19 field goal attempts this year, and five of those came in one game.
So why is he in this section? His matchup this week is one of the best in the league for kickers. The Tennessee Titans are giving up 3.67 field goal attempts and 10.7 kicking points per game to this position in the last month. Coming up in the traditional playoff weeks, he has the Oakland Raiders, the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins - each have been solid matchups this year.
If you've been playing the matchups with your kicker, Scobee should be extremely good this week and solid over the next few.
Ryan Succop, Kansas
City Chiefs (71 percent)
Succop's field goal attempts have dwindled in the last couple of weeks with just one each in Weeks 11 and 12, though he does have 10 extra points in those two weeks. He has connected on 14 of 19 attempts this year.
If you're preparing for your playoff run, go ahead and take a shot at Succop. KC can get him opportunities, when the matchup is good, and the Chiefs have some great ones for him in Weeks 15 and 16. The Denver Broncos present a decent matchup this week (7.3 kicking points per game in the last month), but the St. Louis Rams in Week 15 (11.3 kicking points) and the Tennessee Titans in Week 16 (10.7 kicking points) should both significantly help your championship run.
