Fantasy Kicker Rankings Week 4: Who to start out, sit at kicker in fantasy soccer


Kicker is a humorous place (however our Week 4 fantasy kicker rankings are all enterprise, do not you are worried). Heading into final week, seven of the top-12 fantasy kickers had been owned in fewer than 50 p.c of leagues. Amongst there have been Nick People (No. 2), Dustin Hopkins (3), Graham Gano (4), Greg Joseph (7), Robbie Gould (9), Matt Prater (10), and Chris Boswell (11). In the meantime, Jason Myers, checking in at No. 25, was owned in 60.4 p.c of leagues, and Younghoe Koo, No. 23, was on 84.1 p.c of rosters.

It is robust to discover a place that operates like this. Protection and tight finish may need odd possession/top-12 imbalance early within the season, however kicker will proceed to be anybody’s guess all 12 months lengthy. After all, we have now to attempt to make sense of all of it going into each week, which is why we clearly do not adhere to present rankings when attempting to undertaking for the longer term.

Quarterback | Working again | Extensive receiver | Tight finish | D/ST

As traditional, we like kickers who will probably be indoors, however matchup matter, too. Not like different positions, we won’t merely take a look at fantasy factors allowed. We’ve got to steadiness how good a protection is normally with whether or not it may simply hold a workforce out of the tip zone or fully out of field-goal vary. For kickers, so long as their offense can drive to the opponents’ 35, then they nonetheless have loads of upside. That is why we nonetheless have Tampa’s Ryan Succop (@ Patriots) within the prime 10. Sure, the Pats are a troublesome protection, however Tampa’s offense is so good, we nonetheless count on him to get scoring possibilities. The identical goes for Justin Tucker (@ Broncos), Harrison Butker (@ Eagles), Matt Prater (@ Rams), and Greg Zuerlein (vs. Panthers). The bonus for Tucker is he’ll be enjoying in excessive altitude (is a 70-yarder in play this week?), whereas Zuerlein and Prater get the benefit of enjoying indoors.

Quarterback | Working again | Extensive receiver | Tight finish | D/ST

After all, typically we keep on with a tried-and-true technique of recommending a very good kicker on a very good offense enjoying a nasty protection. Matt Homosexual (vs. Cardinals) and Tyler Bass (@ Texans) are the perfect examples this week, however Dustin Hopkins (@ Falcons) and Chris Boswell (@ Packers) are each on adequate offenses to benefit from defenses which have given up an honest quantity of factors this 12 months.

We’ll proceed to be taught extra about this place because the 12 months goes on, however for now, fantasy house owners solely have a lot to go on. Alternatives will even out, and the perfect kickers will seemingly rise to the highest. After all, sudden down years are nothing new, and there are at all times a couple of contemporary faces who get away. Preserve your eyes peeled and do not be afraid to make a transfer. Giving up on somebody like Koo after three weeks is not the identical as giving up on, say, Saquon Barkley. Kickers are a dime a dozen, and to paraphrase the outdated saying, do not led a dime maintain up greenback. You might have extra necessary gamers in your roster to fret about, so do what you gotta do.
