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.

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline

Brandon LaFell, Carolina Panthers (25 percent)

With Carolina's running game clicking, quarterback Cam Newton only attempted 20 passes in Week 2. Eight of those were aimed at LaFell (double that of Steve Smith), which he neatly turned into six receptions and 90 yards. He appears to be solidifying his status as the team's No. 2 receiving option, which should at least make him valuable receiver depth.

Mike Williams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (36 percent)

Five grabs and 71 yards in two games normally isn't enough to get excited about, but when you've scored in back-to-back contests and have a 964-yard, 11-touchdown season on your resume it changes things. Now firmly in the shadow of wideout Vincent Jackson, Williams should continue to benefit from single coverage. There's too much upside here to wait another week.

Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins (97 percent)

Hartline has led Miami's receivers in both targets and receiving yardage during each of the first two games this season. He accounted for half of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill's 18 completions in Week 2, and he has emerged as the featured performer in the passing game. Those in point-per-reception leagues should make a beeline for Hartline.
