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: 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 straits. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.

Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis Colts (51 percent)

Kansas City Chiefs Ryan Succop
Trust the matchup, not the team

Vinatieri hasn't hit double digits in a game since November 4; that's also the last time he was given more than two field goal attempts. Things are looking up this Sunday, however, as the Kansas City Chiefs have allowed 8.8 points and three FGAs (second-most in the NFL) per game since Week 12. The venerable Vinatieri could be in for a big game.

Ryan Succop, Kansas City Chiefs (91 percent)

OK, so Succop has scored exactly one more point than I have over the Chiefs' last two games. That being said, his Week 16 matchup with the Colts has huge upside as Indianapolis has given up a league-high four FGAs and 12.5 points per game to opposing kickers in the last month. It's a gamble to be sure, but Succop's upside is enticing.

NEW - Graham Gano, Carolina Panthers (99 percent)

With 19 points in the last two weeks, Gano has actually been posting some serviceable fantasy production. That could continue in Week 16 when Carolina faces the Oakland Raiders. In the last four weeks the Raiders have given up 2.5 field goal attempts and eight points per contest, which is with the benefit of their shutout last Sunday.

Bottom line, no one has been torched by opposing kickers more often this year than Oakland. That makes Gano someone you can play with relative confidence.
