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.
NEW - Shaun Hill, Detroit Lions (86 percent)
On Garrard: Houston ripe
Hill (forearm) will start for the Lions this week. Matthew Stafford (shoulder) might be out for the year. The passing offense didn't slow down in Stafford's early-season absence as Hill threw 43-plus passes and multiple touchdowns in three games.
This is a good week to start riding Hill. The Buffalo Bills, Detroit's opponents, have rolled over for opposing QBs by allowing 196.7 passing yards and 2.00 touchdowns per game since Week 5.
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.
David Garrard, Jacksonville
Jaguars (34 percent)
Garrard is coming off his bye week and has had extra time to prepare for this Week 10 tilt against the Houston Texans. The Jags' passer may have been released last week in your league.
In the past month, the Texans have given up aerial averages of 254.7 yards and 3.00 touchdowns per game to the position. The San Diego Chargers' Philip Rivers tossed four touchdowns to backup pass catchers in Week 9 against this Houston defense. The Texans have intercepted only one pass in their last three games, and quarterbacks have completed passes at a 64.9 percent clip against them.
