Streaming Kickers: Week 7 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.
It was another really solid week on the kicking stream for me as four of my six recommendations were top-nine kickers in fantasy points, led by Brandon McManus’ 12 points as the K4. Through six weeks, our optimal streamer has 75 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
Stephen Hauschka (Bills) vs. Dolphins
Buffalo is favored by 16.5 points–not a phrase I saw myself typing in this recent era of the NFL, but here we are. The Bills have the second-highest implied team total of the week at 28 points and are playing Miami at home. Lock Hauschka in as my top streamer for Week 7.
The Bills kicker is on the waiver wire in 98% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues.
