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

Oakland Raiders QB Bruce Gradkowski
Give Gradkowski a whirl

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 straights. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.

Bruce Gradkowski, Oakland Raiders (91 percent)

Last week we told you to keep Gradkowski on your watch list. He was owned in only 2 percent of leagues at the time. In Week 3, at the Arizona Cardinals, Gradkowski completed only 50.0 percent of his passes, throwing 255 yards, one score and an interception.

This week, the Toledo product has the league's worst defense against the quarterback position in the Houston Texans on the docket. Gradkowski should be a played if you're dealing with a bye week or have a midrange starter with a poor matchup. Houston is allowing 381 yards and two touchdowns per game to quarterbacks; they have not intercepted a pass while allowing completions at a 72.8 percent clip.
