Streaming Kickers: Week 5 Targets
Unlike the mob-mentality in most fantasy circles, 4for4 is always 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 4, my best kicker recommendations were Randy Bullock and Ka’imi Fairbairn, who put up 15 (K3) and 13 (K8) fantasy points, respectively. So far through four weeks, 4for4’s optimal streamer has 48 points, translating to fantasy K1 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
Ka’imi Fairbairn (Texans) vs. Jaguars
Despite their coaching turnover, the Texans boast the third-highest implied team total of the week at 30.25 and they are 6.5-point home favorites against the Jaguars. Whether Houston scores a lot of points or continues to struggle in the red zone, Fairbairn wins, and so does your fantasy team.
The Texans placekicker is currently rostered by 32% of Yahoo! fantasy managers.
