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

Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri
Yeah, he's still kickin'

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.

Kai Forbath, Washington Redskins (99 percent)

Forbath split the uprights on his first career field goal attempt (from 50 yards out) and then nailed all five of his PATs as an unusually effective Redskins offense converted possessions into touchdowns. It's understandable if you'd like to see a little more before moving on Forbath, but there's legitimate potential here.

Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis Colts (79 percent)

Even in a tough week for Andrew Luck, the rookie still moved the ball enough to get Vinatieri three field goal attempts. The veteran hit them all and has now scored at least nine points in three of his last four games. Because he has some nice matchups on the horizon, you could do worse than adding Vinatieri.

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 - Dan Bailey, Dallas Cowboys (60 percent)

Bailey's last-second miss in Baltimore was his first of the year, and the second-year kicker has hit double figures twice in the last three games. The Carolina Panthers welcome Dallas this week, and they've been especially gracious hosts when it comes to opposing kickers. Since Week 3, Carolina has allowed a league-high 3.67 field goal attempts and 13.3 points per game! Plug and play, ladies and gentlemen, plug and play.

NEW - Josh Scobee, Jacksonville Jaguars (95 percent)

Jacksonville's offense hasn't done much in 2012, but their Week 7 matchup with the Oakland Raiders looks to be a good one for Scobee. Over the last four weeks, the Silver and Black have given up 2.67 field goal attempts and 10.3 points per outing. That could spell some sneaky value for Scobee.
