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
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.
Dustin Keller, New York Jets (40 percent)
When Mark Sanchez isn't butt fumbling or tossing the pigskin to the wrong team he likes to find Keller, who rates as one of the few viable weapons in the passing game. Since returning to full strength on Oct. 21, Keller has averaged 4.8 receptions, 57.4 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. That's not bad production.
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 - Benjamin Watson, Cleveland Browns (98 percent)
With the Raiders struggling to contain the passing attack, it's no surprise that their performance against tight ends - six receptions for 62.3 yards and 0.75 touchdowns per game over their last four outings - has been wanting as well. Watson hasn't posted big numbers this season, but he's a veteran that knows how to exploit matchups.
NEW - Jared Cook, Tennessee Titans (50 percent)
Although Cook hasn't become the weapon many felt he could be entering the season, the dismissal of offensive coordinator Chris Palmer may open up some additional opportunities to stretch the field. He gets a good matchup this weekend as the injury-depleted Houston Texans have surrendered six catches, 59.8 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game to the position since Week 9.
Give Cook a chance in your lineup in Week 13, and if he performs well consider keeping him on for the stretch run.
