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.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson
Wilson will fill up your roster

Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks (58 percent)

Seattle favored a ground-and-pound attack in Week 10, but in Wilson's 19 attempts he still managed to pass for 188 yards and two touchdowns, the fourth time in five games he's thrown for multiple scores. Consider carrying him as your No. 2 option that can be started in the right matchup.

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 - Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins (72 percent)

Tannehill suffered through a dreadful performance in Week 10, throwing zero touchdowns with three interceptions in a blowout loss. He was mostly solid in the preceding five games, however, and Thursday's date with the Buffalo Bills could usher in a return to form. During the last four weeks, Buffalo has allowed 236.7 passing yards and 1.67 touchdowns per contest to quarterbacks without an interception to their credit.

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.

Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles (90 percent)

Although head coach Andy Reid had resisted the urge to replace Michael Vick (concussion) under center, an injury forced Foles into action. He was uneven in his NFL debut, completing 22 of 32 for 219 yards and a touchdown but also committing a pair of turnovers returned for touchdowns. If the Eagles use this as the impetus to make a permanent switch, Foles might have some value.

Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers (98 percent)

With Alex Smith (concussion) sidelined, Kaepernick took over and brought the 49ers back from behind before eventually settling for a tie. The second-year pro didn't show a lot as a passer (11-for-17, 117 yards), but he's a dangerous runner (eight carries, 66 yards and a touchdown). Monitor Smith's status before considering a run at Kaepernick as he's unlikely to unseat the incumbent long term.
