Streaming Kickers: Week 1 Targets
Despite the anti-kicker sentiment that engulfs the fantasy football community, 4for4 remains kicker-friendly, and I’m here to provide a safe space for those who still play in leagues that utilize the 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 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
Mason Crosby (Packers) @ Saints
Road kickers are not usually my favorite for streaming, but Mason Crosby is set up for a productive start to the season on neutral territory because of damage from Hurricane Ida. The Packers are favored to win by 4.5 points in this NFC matchup, with a meaty projected score of 27.75.
Crosby is currently free in 72% of Yahoo! leagues, so snag him off the waiver wire and hang on to him, because Green Bay gets a home contest in Week 2 against the Lions.
