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: 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.
Dan Carpenter, Miami Dolphins (85 percent)
Something to build on
Carpenter has been solid the past two weeks, converting all five of his field goal attempts and tallying 17 points. This Sunday they host the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have given up a league-high 3.25 field goal attempts and 10.3 points per game over the past month. For those that play the matchups, this might be the best one you'll find.
Graham Gano, Carolina Panthers (100 percent)
Signed before Week 12, Gano bounced back from a couple forgettable outings to hit all three of his field goals and finish with 12 points on Sunday. In Week 15 the Panthers travel to play the San Diego Chargers. During the past four games, the Bolts have allowed 2.5 field goal attempts and 9.0 points per contest. If Carpenter is unavailable, Gano is a solid secondary option.
NEW - Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings (36 percent)
Granted, Walsh has done next to nothing recently - 1-for-3 on FGAs, nine points combined in his last three games. However, the St. Louis Rams have surrendered 2.5 field-goal attempts per contest over their last four; tied for the fifth-most in the NFL. Despite some recent struggles, if Walsh gets the opportunities odds are he'll make the most of them.
