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.
Shaun Suisham, Pittsburgh Steelers (59 percent)
More chances coming for Bailey?
Heinz Field has been known as a notoriously bad stadium to kick in. Don't tell that to Suisham, though, as the veteran has scored nine points or more in five of his last six games. He's also an excellent 16-for-17 on field goal attempts on the season. Until Suisham (or the weather) cools down, he should be owned in most leagues.
NEW - Kai Forbath, Washington Redskins (94 percent)
We noted weeks ago if Forbath could stabilize the kicking situation in D.C. that he'd be worth owning. Well, in three weeks with the Redskins he has averaged 8.33 points per game and converted all six of his field goal attempts (including five from 40 yards or more). Given the team's recent history of producing field goal chances, Forbath should be added now.
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.
Dan Bailey, Dallas Cowboys (49 percent)
Bailey has missed only once on the season, and though he produced an unimpressive six points in Week 8, the Cowboys continue to move the ball up and down the field. Imagine the scoring opportunities if they could just clean up their turnover problems.
