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.

Nick Folk, New York Jets (61 percent)

Arizona Cardinals PK Jay Feely
Feely should get plenty of chances

The Jets have provided Folk with 3.50 extra points (all made) and 1.25 field goals per contest in the last month. He missed one of his five field goal tries. He has averaged 6.5 fantasy points per game in this time.

Their Big Apple counterparts have allowed the fourth most fantasy points per game to the position in the last month. The New York Giants have surrendered an average of 4.50 extra points and 2.00 field goal kicks per contest. All of the point-afters split the uprights, and kickers are 6-for-8 from three-point land.

Jay Feely, Arizona Cardinals (87 percent)

Feely has been perfect kicking in the past four weeks, averaging 2.00 point-after attempts and 1.75 treys per game. The translation is 7.2 fantasy points per game in traditional scoring.

The Cincinnati Bengals have permitted 2.50 extra point attempts and as many field goal tries per game in the past four contests. Enemy kickers have been perfect on the point-after kicks and have made an average of 1.50 field goals.
