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.
Big little man Tate
Golden Tate, Seattle Seahawks (48 percent)
Tate has shown a flair for the dramatic this season, and his go-ahead score in the closing moments of regulation in Week 13 was all effort. The former Golden Domer has continued to develop alongside Russell Wilson, and over his last five games he has averaged 4.4 receptions, 59 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per contest. Add Tate if your receiver corps is struggling.
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.
Chris Givens, St. Louis Rams (77 percent)
With Danny Amendola (foot) injured, Givens stepped in and was Sam Bradford's target of choice. It was a role change for the big-play threat, whose longest catch was just 16 yards, but it marked his sixth fantasy relevant performance in seven games. He may have seen twice as many targets with Amendola out, but the big picture with Givens is that he continues to find ways to produce.
Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns (39 percent)
Gordon has caught a pass longer than 20 yards in eight straight games, and he found the end zone for the first time since Oct. 21 courtesy of a 44-yard bomb from Brandon Weeden in Week 13. There are plenty of encouraging signs with Gordon, who has 15 grabs in his last three contests after not catching more than three in a game prior to that, and he's someone to consider.
NEW - Andrew Hawkins, Cincinnati Bengals (73 percent)
Almost as soon as we endorsed Mohamed Sanu (foot) the rookie was placed on Injured Reserve with a foot injury. Thus, it appears we have come full circle and are back to Hawkins, who appeared here all the way back in Week 2. The undersized wideout has been up and down this year, but his eight targets in Week 13 ranked second on the club to A.J. Green.
