Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: PK - Week 17

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: One-week plays

The following fantasy football pickups are for those who need injury or bye week replacements. They are not players you immediately acquire - unless your team is in dire straights. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.

Jeff Reed, San Francisco 49ers (79 percent)

Shaun Suisham, PK, Pittsburgh Steelers
Add Suisham if you're in need

Reed has missed just one of his nine field goal attempts since taking over for Joe Nedney (knee) in Week 13. He had seven of those attempts in two games (Weeks 13 and 14). The offense hasn't given him a ton of kicking attempts lately; however, they'll receive a boost against the Arizona Cardinals this week.

Arizona's defense is giving up a lot of yards per game, so San Fran might not have as tough a time moving the ball against them as usual, especially playing at home. Over the last month, no team has given up more field goal attempts (3.25) per game than the Cards. They're also allowing 10.3 kicking points per game, which is the second most in the league.

Shaun Suisham, Pittsburgh Steelers (86 percent)

Suisham has attempted at least three field goals in his last five games. He has missed just one field goal attempt of the 13 Pittsburgh has given him since replacing Jeff Reed in Week 11. This week he faces the Cleveland Browns, who are giving up 2.27 field goal attempts per game this year.

Over the last month, Cleveland is giving up 8.0 kicking points per game, including 2.50 field goal attempts, which is tied for the fifth most per game in that time. Suisham has been accurate and that should pay off this week with an expected boost in field goal attempts.
