That is a pretty broad question, and I don't know how much detail that you want.

Let's start by asking how much that you know about Fiddler?  Did you just install it, and now trying to figure out how to use it?

One possible scenario:

I work with a WCF 4 REST Service, and it has a been very valuable debug aid.  It can help you generate a SOAP/JSON request.  With newer versions of Fiddler, there is the Composer tab.  With older versions, it was called the Request Builder tab.  It lets you "compose" a request, and send it to the target server, and inspect the response.

Gopaltayde: The video was quite useful. That seems it cover only basics. Could you please share more videos which uncover some more features of Fiddler?
