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.

Chad Henne, Miami Dolphins (72 percent)

Miami Dolphins QB Chad Henne
A Henne saved....

The 'Fins are coming off a bye, so Henne should be widely available. Throw in his blossoming game - he went 20-for-26 for 241 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 5 - and you have a fantasy commodity. The bright second-year man from Michigan has a stronger arm than Chad Pennington (shoulder) and an impressive running game to lean on. Henne is high-end No. 3 material with the upside to be a low-end No. 2.

Fantasy football free agents: Watch list

These fantasy football free agents shouldn't be on your immediate list. They may have had a big week. They may have talent but are buried on the depth chart and merely awaiting an opportunity. Still, fantasy football players must know who they are for their potential contribution in the future.

Todd Collins, Washington Redskins (99 percent)

Jason Campbell put up another stinker of a line Sunday (9-for-16, 89 yards, one pick) and seems only to be getting worse. Collins relieved him against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Jim Zorn still believes in Campbell, but how much longer will Zorn be around? The 'Skins will allow someone else to call plays, which earns Campbell some reprieve, but the clock is ticking. Collins isn't exciting, but those in deep leagues should monitor him.

NEW - Vince Young, Tennessee Titans (96 percent)

The Titans are reeling. They are on their bye following a 59-0 drubbing at the hands of the New England Patriots. Only the Cleveland Browns are allowing more offensive yards per game than them over the last month. They've given up about 10 more points per game than the nearest team since Week 3. Changes could be coming.

Young and Kerry Collins are both expected to receive reps behind center during the bye week, and head coach Jeff Fisher will hold off announcing a starter for now. Titans owner Bud Adams wants to see more VY. What does Tennessee really have to play for? They're 0-6. Young hasn't been a great fantasy contributor in the past, but he's worth adding to your watch list - this team will be behind a lot, and Young has some versatility (12 passing TDs, seven rushing TDs in this rookie year).
