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.
Phil Dawson, Cleveland Browns (86 percent)
Pick up this old timer
Dawson has kicked 1.00 of his 1.50 per-game field goal tries through the uprights, and he has made all five of his extra point tries, in the last month. While he hasn't found a lot of opportunities in recent weeks, Dawson has a fantastic matchup to take advantage of.
The Arizona Cardinals have allowed 4.50 field goal attempts (2.75 made) and 1.50 extra point tries per game in the last four weeks. Cleveland's anemic offense may be just good enough to get Dawson into three-point range enough to warrant a fantasy play.
Connor Barth, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (76 percent)
The Bucs' offense can move the ball, at least enough to put Barth into field goal range against a suspect defense. Dallas' D has been so-so lately, but they have been extra friendly to the place kicker position.
Barth has averaged 1.75 field goal and extra point tries per game, making all of them, in the last month. Dallas has given up 2.00 extra points and 3.00 field goal attempts (2.25 made) per contest.
