Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: PK - Week 9
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.
Note: Percentage of polled leagues in which player is available in parentheses
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.
Try not to let Scobee's one-point Week 8 dud (including a blocked extra point offering) cloud his potential. Scobee hasn't been very accurate this season but has Jacksonville's blessing to attempt long field goals. His upcoming schedule includes the Kansas City Chiefs, who have given up 3.00 three-point attempts and 2.00 PAT tries per game in three outings since Week 4.
Scobee's future slate should garner interest, as well: He faces the Buffalo Bills in Week 11, the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13 and the Miami Dolphins in Week 14. All three teams are ranked as top-10 fantasy matchups for field goal tries allowed per game in the last four weeks.
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 straights. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.
It's your lucky week: The kicker with the best matchup this week should be available in your league. The Jacksonville Jaguars, whom Succop will face this week, have surrendered 2.33 field goal attempts and 3.33 extra points per game to this position over the last four weeks (three games). Kansas City is coming off their bye; the extra week off might actually have them ready for a game on offense. Succop has been accurate with his 11 attempts this year, connecting on nine of them, and has also nailed all 10 extra points.
