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.
Note: Percentage of polled leagues in which player is available in parentheses
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.
Bironas' big leg could be busy
Billy Cundiff, Baltimore Ravens (47 percent)
The vet has attempted at least two field goals in every 2011 contest, including a five-trey Week 6, his second of the season with a quintet of attempts. He's 14-for-16 on the year, with both misses coming in Week 3. The Ravens' offense sets him up frequently for scores, especially since they don't have a real red zone threat outside of Ray Rice.
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.
Rob Bironas, Tennessee Titans (65 percent)
Bironas attempted just one field goal in four of Tennessee's five games this year; his 4-for-5 Week 2 has accounted for nearly all of his damage. The Titans' offense hasn't found consistency from RB Chris Johnson, and their passing game has improved but doesn't have as much punch as it did when Injured Reserve inhabitant Kenny Britt (knee) was healthy.
The Houston Texans should help Bironas get more involved this weekend. They've allowed opposing boots to attempt 3.0 FGs and line up for 1.75 XPs per contest in the last four weeks.
NEW - Josh Brown, St. Louis Rams (67 percent)
Brown has not lined up very much for kicks of any kind in the last month, having averaged only 0.67 extra point attempts and 1.00 field goal tries per game. He has made two of his three treys in this time.
The Rams brought in Brandon Lloyd via trade with the Denver Broncos, and the veteran wideout excelled last year in Josh McDaniels' system.
St. Louis' Week 7 opponent, the Dallas Cowboys, have allowed 2.33 point-afters and 2.67 field goal attempts. Kickers have made all of their one-point tries and 2.33 field goals per outing since Week 2.
