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: Priority additions

The following players should be high on your radar and are worthy of being added immediately to your fantasy football team.

Billy Cundiff, Baltimore Ravens (82 percent)

OK, in all fairness the Lions gave him 12 points last week (including six XPs) and the Indianapolis Colts gave him 15 in Week 11, but Cundiff has tallied at least eight kicking points in three of his four games as a Raven. His two botches this year have come in purple, yet this team gives him ample opportunities. In a remaining schedule against the Chicago Bears, Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders, Cundiff faces three teams that ranked in the top 10 fantasy matchups for field goal tries since Week 8.

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.

The following players should be high on your radar and are worthy of being added immediately to your fantasy football team.

Olindo Mare, Seattle Seahawks (66 percent)

The Seahawks offense has let Mare notch at least eight kicking points in four of his last six games, but he recorded just one in Week 14. The cure? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have surrendered 9.5 kicking points and 2.67 three-point tries per game since Week 8. Warning: With the Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans looming for Mare after this week, you'll probably have to keep the carousel spinning.

NEW - Graham Gano, Washington Redskins (99 percent)

Gano debuted with the 'Skins in Week 14 and promptly tallied 10 kicking points, including two field goals within the 40- to 49-yard bracket. Washington often settles for field goals in their offense, and the New York Giants, Gano's next opponent, have averaged 7.4 kicking points allowed per game since Week 8. Comprising New York's average is 2.00 three-point attempts and 3.40 extra point tries.
