Streaming Kickers: Week 6 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 5, my best kicker recommendations were Ryan Succop and Ka'imi Fairbairn, who put up 15 (K4) and 14 (K6) fantasy points, respectively. So far through five weeks, 4for4’s optimal streamer has 63 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.
Top Streaming Picks
Jason Sanders (Dolphins) vs. Jets
I don’t get to write about Jason Sanders in this space too much, so this is a refreshing change. Not only is he coming off a top kicker performance from Week 5, but Sanders gets a home contest this week where the Dolphins are favored by eight points, with a juicy implied team total of 27.75 points.
The Jets have surrendered the fifth-most fantasy points to kickers this season which sweetens the pot even more. Sanders is sitting on 97% of Yahoo! waiver wires.
