Streaming Kickers: Week 4 Targets
Unlike the mob-mentality in most fantasy circles, 4for4 is pro-kicker 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.
In Week 3, my best kicker was also my top suggestion, Rodrigo Blankenship, who put up 11 fantasy points as the fantasy K11. So far through two contests, 4for4’s optimal streamer has 33 points, translating to fantasy K3 numbers 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
Sam Sloman (Rams) vs. Giants
Even though Sam Sloman hasn’t had the best NFL start—missing a field goal in each of the first three games—his Week 4 matchup is a pretty savory one. The Rams are 13-point home favorites against the Giants, and are tied with Seattle for the third-highest implied team total of the week at 30.25 points.
The rookie kicker is only on 1% of Yahoo! rosters and makes for a really nice streamer this week.
