Streaming Kickers: Week 2 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
Joey Slye (Panthers) vs. Buccaneers
In his debut for Carolina, Slye went 2-for-3 in field goal attempts, missing wide right on a 53-yarder, and made all three of his extra points. This week he stays home against the Bucs, with his team favored to win by 6.5 points with an implied team total of 28.25. Look for Slye to have opportunity to put some points on the board in Week 2.
Slye is available in 98% of Yahoo! leagues.
