Streaming Kickers: Week 12 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.
Week 11 was another successful one on the stream, as four of my five recommendations were among the top-14 kickers in fantasy points. Through 11 weeks, our optimal streamer has 139 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.

Younghoe Koo (Falcons) vs. Buccaneers
Atlanta is on a nice two-game win streak and Koo has posted double-digit fantasy points throughout his short tenure as a Falcon. Up next is a juicy matchup against Tampa Bay at home, where they’re favored by four points with an implied team total of a healthy 27.50.
Koo should see plenty of chances to add points to your roster in this divisional battle and he’s available on 95% of Yahoo! waiver wires heading into Week 12.
