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: Priority additions

The following players should be high on your radar and are worthy of being added immediately to your fantasy football team.

Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens (68 percent)

After going 3-for-3 on field goals as part of a 15-point NFL debut, Tucker showed it was no fluke by nailing all three of his field goal attempts again in Week 2, including kicks of 51 and 56 yards. Baltimore's offense has been stalling under quarterback Joe Flacco, which is good news for the rookie kicker. With 26 points and five field goals of at least 40 yards already under his belt, Tucker is worth adding immediately.

Fantasy football free agents: Look to acquire

The following players will have greater significance in deep fantasy football leagues. In shallow fantasy football leagues, they are not as high of a priority but should be considered based on your fantasy football team's needs.

Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings (83 percent)

Walsh wasn't as busy in Week 2 as he was in the opener but still pushed his seasonal tally to 6-for-6 on field goals; that included a 51-yarder. With tailback Adrian Peterson looking close to full health and quarterback Christian Ponder playing better than expected the Vikings should continue to provide Walsh with scoring chances.

NEW - Greg Zuerlein, St. Louis Rams (87 percent)

Through two games, Zuerlein is tied for fourth in the NFL with 22 points and has successfully converted all six of his field goal attempts. The Rams have looked solid under a rejuvenated Sam Bradford, who helped then-kicker Josh Brown to a 125-point output in 2010. If this keeps up the rookie could become a viable weekly play.

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 straits. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.

NEW - Nick Folk, New York Jets (91 percent)

With the Jets struggling to move the ball in Week 2, Folk finished with a measly four points. This week versus the Dolphins should be smoother sailing with only the Arizona Cardinals (nine) having allowed more field goal attempts than Miami (six) in 2012.
