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.

Josh Freeman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (26 percent)

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles
Eagles may turn to Foles

We hyped Freeman in this space a week ago, and he rewarded our confidence by passing for 262 yards and three touchdowns in a Thursday night evisceration of the Minnesota Vikings - his third straight game with three touchdown passes. With some high-profile quarterbacks with byes on the horizon, Freeman should make a solid addition.

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.

Brandon Weeden, Cleveland Browns (57 percent)

Weeden endured his worst showing since Week 1 on Sunday, completing just 11 of his 27 passes for 129 yards. The weather was a major factor, however, and next week's showdown against a wounded Baltimore Ravens defense is far more attractive than it would've been in the past. Weeden already passed for 320 yards against the Ravens in Week 4, so if you're in need, add the rookie.

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.

Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles (94 percent)

It sounds as though the writing's on the wall for Michael Vick, who was ineffective in Week 8 despite not turning the ball over, as this week could spell the end of his reign as Philly's starter. If the Eagles make a change in Week 10, Foles becomes an interesting player given the team's weapons.

Matt Moore, Miami Dolphins (99 percent)

Rookie Ryan Tannehill (quadriceps) was knocked out of Sunday's win over the New York Jets and did not return. If the injury will keep him out of action, Moore could have some temporary value.
