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.
Fred Davis, Washington Redskins (56 percent)
Davis has settled in nicely as a key red zone component of the 'Skins offense. He has at least three catches in four of his last five games and has four scores in his last three outings, including a two-TD affair in Week 14. Quarterback Jason Campbell has looked his way at least four times in five of Washington's last six games. He faces some relatively friendly fantasy foes in the New York Giants (one of the worst against the position since Week 8), Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers.
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.
Evan Moore, Cleveland Browns (99 percent)
We talked about the athletic Moore making some noise for being more involved in Cleveland's playbook. Lo and behold, he was sought out six times Thursday after his 11-target Week 13. Brady Quinn's short-range game and the Browns' lack of elite offensive options gives Moore an opportunity in leagues that value carrying a backup tight end, even this late in the year. His slate features the Kansas City Chiefs (Week 15), Oakland Raiders (Week 16) and Jacksonville Jaguars (Week 17).
NEW - Dustin Keller, New York Jets (41 percent)
Keller has only seen 12 targets in his last four games and has produced just two catches for eight yards in his last two games. He was starting to turn the gears in the four games prior to that pair. With Mark Sanchez (knee) aiming to return this week against the Atlanta Falcons, Keller stands as an attractive desperation starter or flex option. Since Week 8 the Dirty Birds have allowed 4.50 catches, 49.3 yards and 0.67 touchdown grabs per contest against tight ends. That secondary has enough holes that even the more conservative Kellen Clemens, if he had to start, could find Keller once in awhile.
