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: 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.
We wrote about him in Week 7, forecasting that Young replacing Kerry Collins was eminent. The Titans' faith was somewhat rewarded as Young managed the offense in their first win of the season. Of course, his 15-for-18 effort produced only 125 aerial yards and one passing score. On the bright side, he should retain the job and has the ability to contribute with his feet, as well. Given the slim pickings at quarterback, those who crave a backup or No. 3 should go with VY but shouldn't expect miracles.
Freeman's NFL baptism came in Week 7 against the New England Patriots; he attempted just four passes and finished with as many sacks as completions (two). The rook was considered a project coming out of Kansas State, and with a poor supporting cast, he likely won't have much help this year or for his first NFL start this week. To top it all off, the Green Bay Packers are this week's opponent; they've beaten up on subpar opponents when they've faced them this year. Freeman is a starter, but he is still far from fantasy-relevant in single-year leagues outside of desperate owners in leagues that require three quarterbacks. If you must look in his direction, at least be confident in the fact that the Bucs will have to throw often to try to stay in games.
