Streaming Kickers: Week 11 Targets
We’re a kicker-friendly site at 4for4 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 on 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.
Matt Gay was my top streamer last week and finished as the fantasy K4 with 12 fantasy points. Through 10 weeks, our optimal streamer has 130 fantasy points, good enough for the overall fantasy K1 on the season.
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
Robbie Gould (49ers) vs. Cardinals
Obviously, check on Gould’s status and prepare to pivot to Chase McLaughlin if he’s not back for Week 11, but it’s setting up to be a gold star week for the San Francisco kicker. The 49ers are home favorites by 13.5 points and have the highest implied team total of the week at 30 points.
Gould is currently on 29% of Yahoo! rosters and McLaughlin sits on just 4%.
