Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: PK - Week 11

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.

Mike Nugent, Cincinnati Bengals (60 percent)

St. Louis Rams PK Josh Brown
What can Brown do for you?

Nugent has averaged 3.00 extra point tries and 1.33 field goal attempts per game (made all) in the last month. He is averaging 7.0 fantasy points per contest in the last month.

His Week 11 opponent, the Baltimore Ravens, have allowed place kickers to average the second most average fantasy points (11.3) per game in the past month. This stems from 1.50 extra point attempts and 3.25 three-pointers per matchup. Kickers have made every field goal and extra point attempt.

Josh Brown, St. Louis Rams (76 percent)

The Rams have afforded Brown 1.75 field goal tries (1.50 made) and 1.50 extra point attempts (1.50 made) per game in the past four weeks. This translates to an average of 6.00 fantasy points per matchup.

The Seattle Seahawks have permitted 3.00 treys and 2.00 touchdown punctuations per contest in the last month of play. Enemy kickers have made an average of 2.00 field goals and each of the extra point kicks.

These divisional foes could be in for a low-scoring, field goal-heavy battle in Week 11.
