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.
Detroit Lions (64 percent)
A House of Spears ... and big plays
It's actually difficult to imagine an NFL team playing offense as poorly as the Arizona Cardinals, but over the past three weeks that group has tallied 23 points, allowed seven sacks and turned the ball over 13 times - four of which were returned for touchdowns. Even if Kevin Kolb (ribs) suits up this is a tremendous matchup.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (43 percent)
While you wouldn't typically associate the high-powered New Orleans Saints as a strong matchup for their opponent, Drew Brees has been unusually mistake-prone in recent weeks. In fact, during their past three games, the Saints have allowed seven sacks and committed a whopping 11 turnovers. It's a bit of a risk to roll the dice against Brees and the Saints, but with the sloppy way they've been playing it's certainly tempting.
NEW - Miami Dolphins (58 percent)
Whatever magic Chad Henne brought to the Jacksonville Jaguars appears to have worn off. Over their last three games, the Jags have allowed 4.33 sacks and 1.67 turnovers per contest. Plus, their scoring output has decreased in each game, falling from 24 in Week 12 to 10 this past Sunday. That makes Miami and their fourth-ranked pass rush an enticing play.
