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: 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.
Arizona Cardinals (76 percent)
It was easy to overlook Arizona's solid Week 1 showing (two turnovers, three sacks, 13 points allowed) since they were hosting a rookie quarterback. That task became exponentially more difficult this week when they traveled across the country and largely shut down the New England Patriots. The Cardinals harassed quarterback Tom Brady, sacking him four times and holding their explosive offense to 18 points.
Worthwhile matchup play
Arizona's relentless pressure hasn't resulted in a ton of big plays yet, but that could all change this coming Sunday when they host turnover-prone quarterback Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles.
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 - St. Louis Rams (95 percent)
It didn't take long for Jeff Fisher's influence to pay dividends for the Rams, who have four interceptions in two games this season, including one that was returned for a touchdown. Now they square off against Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who has been sacked nine times and tossed five picks already this year. With Matt Forte (ankle) iffy as well, this looks like a good week to plug in an opportunistic Rams defense.
