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: 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.
Campbell feeling Patriotic
Jason Campbell, Oakland Raiders (73 percent)
Campbell is coming off a 156-yard game against the New York Jets. Leave him on the wire, right? Well, he's facing the New England Patriots this week - the same Pats that have allowed the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills to thrash their secondary. The Raiders aren't even on those teams' aerial levels, but Denarius Moore is emerging to complement the dangerous Darren McFadden in the receiving game. Oakland will probably have to throw often in this one; reap the benefits if you're scraping the barrel.
Donovan McNabb, Minnesota Vikings (57 percent)
McNabb showed a little more life last week, going 22-for-36 and topping 200 yards for the second straight contest and tossing his second score of the season. When those are accomplishments.... Either way, he's starting to work in tight ends Visanthe Shiancoe and Kyle Rudolph a bit more - a positive given his history of targeting the position - and they should be able to throw a little easier on an all-around sorry Kansas City Chiefs squad; they could use this week as an experiment in opening up the offense. If you're forced into considering McNabb this week, it's decent timing.
