Streaming Kickers: Week 1 Targets
4for4 is a kicker-friendly site and I’m here to provide a safe space for those who still play in leagues that utilize the kicker position. In fact, using kicker to your advantage is a great way to get a leg up on your opponents and gain potential league-winning points from week to week.
Focusing in on the team implied point totals, we can get a cumulative idea of how that offense will perform when it comes to settling for field goals, distance of kicks, and the like. For a more detailed explanation on using Vegas odds for successfully streaming kickers, I suggest checking out 4for4’s DFS Playbook Strategy article, which is packed with info on the most profitable way to predict the position.
In order to provide advice you can actually implement, candidates for streaming must be owned in no more than 40% of Yahoo fantasy leagues. As always, check 4for4’s rankings and our signature Schedule-Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed (aFPA) metric when making weekly decisions on any position.
Top Streaming Picks
Austin Seibert (Browns) vs. Titans
Nothing like starting out a streaming piece with a name most of you haven’t heard of but stay with me here. Cleveland is the largest home favorite of available streamers, as the Browns are projected to win by 5.5 points, with a decent implied team total of 25.5. Seibert spent all four years in Oklahoma as their kicker, punter and kicking specialist. He carries with him a 98.4% point-after-attempt success rate, along with making 79.7% of field goals attempted. He gets a home tilt to start the season with Browns fans super lathered up about the season’s potential.
Seibert is available in 99% of Yahoo leagues. As a bonus, the rookie has a soft Week 2 contest against last season’s second-worst defense in kicker aFPA.
