Streaming Kickers: Week 12 Targets
The anti-kicker movement is in full swing as always, and at 4for4, we 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 weekly league-winning points.
Week 11 was another decent one on the stream, as four of my recommendations finished within the top 12 in kicker fantasy points:
- Mike Badgley - 10 points (K3)
- Chris Boswell - 9 points (K8)
- Jason Myers & Nick Folk - 8 points (K12)
So far through 11 weeks, 4for4’s optimal streamer has 147 points, translating to fantasy K1 numbers on the season.
In order to provide advice you can actually implement, candidates for streaming must be rostered 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.
*At the time of writing, Yahoo’s rostership numbers are down, so I used numbers from NFL.com and will update those percentages when they are available.
Top Streaming Picks
Tyler Bass (Bills) vs. Chargers
After presumably a nice week of rest, Bass gets a home contest this week where the Bills are favored by 5.5 points, with the highest implied team total on the slate currently set at 29.5.
There should be ample chances to kick for Bass on Sunday, and he’s free in 78% of leagues heading into Week 12.
