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.

Dustin Keller, New York Jets (42 percent)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki
Moeaki back in the mix?

New York's offense has been something of a train wreck this season. Even working within that context, Keller has been productive. His seven-catch effort on Sunday mirrored his Week 7 performance, which gives him 14 receptions, 160 yards and a touchdown over the Jets' last two games. Keller is worth owning in all 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 - Scott Chandler, Buffalo Bills (48 percent)

The Houston Texans, this week's opponent for the Bills, haven't given up a lot of receptions to opposing tight ends, but those tight ends have done damage with the ball in their hands. In the past four weeks, Houston ranks 28th in yards per catch (13.6) and tied for 27th in touchdowns (0.67 per game) allowed. That sounds like the kind of environment in which Chandler - "The Touchdown Handler" to those in the know - could thrive!

Fantasy football free agents: Watch list

These fantasy football free agents shouldn't be on your immediate list. They may have had a big week. They may have talent but are buried on the depth chart and merely awaiting an opportunity. Still, fantasy football players must know who they are for their potential contribution in the future.

Logan Paulsen, Washington Redskins (90 percent)

In his first full game following the injury to Fred Davis (Achilles), Paulsen hauled in four passes for 43 yards. His numbers weren't great, but the fact that he was targeted six times (to Chris Cooley's one) is encouraging.

Tony Moeaki, Kansas City Chiefs (98 percent)

It's been a disappointing season for Moeaki, but there's no doubt he has some talent. He enjoyed his best game of the year on Sunday (four grabs, 57 yards on a team-high eight targets) and belongs back on your radar, particularly if the Chiefs choose to do something ahead of the trade deadline with receiver Dwayne Bowe.
