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.
Scobee to be busy against Colts
Dan Carpenter, Miami Dolphins (64 percent)
In his last four games, Carpenter has made all of his 1.75 field goal attempts and 1.50 extra point tries per game. He has averaged 6.8 actual kicking points per matchup in this time.
The Dolphins host the Washington Redskins, who have given up the most average fantasy points (11.8) per game to the position in the last month. They have given up 3.50 field goal tries (3.25 made) and 2.00 extra point attempts, which opponents have been perfect on.
Miami's offense has improved recently, but Washington's strength is their defense, so this game could be a field goal frenzy for Carp.
Josh Scobee, Jacksonville Jaguars (68 percent)
Scobee has averaged just 1.00 extra point attempts and 2.00 field goal tries, making all of his kicks, per game in the past month. He is averaging 7.0 actual kicking points and is coming off a bye week of preparation.
The Indianapolis Colts have allowed enemy footers to convert 1.75 of the average 2.00 treys allotted to them and be perfect on their 4.50 average scoring punctuations in the past four weeks.
With a rookie quarterback, the game could feature offensive futility in the red zone and lead to plenty of Scobee attempts.
