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.

Oakland Raiders TE Brandon Myers
Myers' availability comedic

Jared Cook, Tennessee Titans (33 percent)

Over the past four weeks, Cook has averaged four receptions, 51 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. There's untapped upside in the fourth-year tight end with the speed to work deep down the middle. As such, Cook is worth grabbing and stashing in many formats, especially with Jake Locker (shoulder) potentially returning in Week 7.

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.

Brandon Myers, Oakland Raiders (82 percent)

After a no-show in a blowout loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 4, Myers got back on track Sunday with five catches for 62 yards. He's not catching everything thrown his way anymore - in fact, he let a would-be touchdown clank off his usually reliable hands - but he's a steady producer that at least holds value in larger leagues.

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 - Rob Housler, Arizona Cardinals (98 percent)

I'm not a political person, so I'm going to go ahead and assume that when pundits talk about "1 percenters" they're referring to that exclusive club known as the Housler owners. What's that? Oh, those are "2 percenters." Apologies. Anyway, Housler tallied decent numbers in Weeks 4 and 5 - five receptions for 93 yards combined - before a quiet effort last Sunday.
