Streaming Kickers: Week 2 Targets
At 4for4, we pride ourselves on being 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 weekly league-winning points. To find out more about the benefits of doing kicker research, check out this article I wrote on Debunking the Randomness of Kickers.
In Week 1, my two best kickers were Daniel Carlson with 12 fantasy points, followed by Tyler Bass with 9 points. Carlson finished the week as the highest-scoring fantasy kicker, making him my optimal streamer.
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
Mason Crosby (Packers) vs. Lions
Coming off an 11-fantasy point outing in Week 1, Mason Crosby gets a juicy home contest against the Lions this week. Green Bay is projected to score 26.5 points and they are favored by 5.5-points over fellow NFC North rival Detroit.
Crosby is free in 77% of Yahoo! Leagues, so grab him if you’re into streaming this week, or if your kicker lost their job after a crappy Week 1 performance.
