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.
Won't live by his name
Connor Barth, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (35 percent)
Make it back-to-back 11-point performances for Barth, who has attempted multiple field goals in six straight games. During that stretch he has posted double digits four times, and only once was he not given the opportunity to reach that number. The Bucs offense is legit, and the fact that they have no remaining games in cold climates is another selling point.
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.
Ryan Succop, Kansas City Chiefs (92 percent)
I know what you're thinking. Yes, Succop does play for the Chiefs. And yes, his name pretty much contains the word "suck." Nonetheless, Succop has racked up 16 field goal attempts over the last six weeks. Had he converted them all he would've scored at least nine points five times in that time. Even with a couple misses, he is averaging a respectable eight points per contest. It may sound counter-intuitive, but Succop has some legitimate value.
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 Bironas, Tennessee Titans (74 percent)
Bironas had a dud last weekend, but prior to that he had posted 13 points in back-to-back weeks. This Sunday he faces an Indianapolis Colts team that has allowed 2.5 FGAs and 9.3 points (sixth-most in the NFL) per game during the past month. If you're looking for kicking help, Bironas might be the answer this week and beyond.
