Streaming Kickers: Week 2 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.
Week 1 was a total disaster for kickers, as there were last-minute swaps and plenty of teams who underperformed. Nick Folk was subbed in for Quinn Nordin and was my highest recommendation—K9 with 10 fantasy points.
Top Streaming Picks
Chase McLaughlin (Browns) vs. Texans
A double-digit (-12.5) home favorite with the second-highest implied team total of the week at 30 points? Sign.Me.Up. Chase McLaughlin is my top choice for streaming this week with the ideal scenario to add plenty of points to rosters across fantasy land.
The Cleveland kicker is only rostered by 8% of Yahoo! players, so he should be there for you this week.
Jason Myers (Seahawks) vs. Titans
