Streaming Kickers: Week 8 Targets
We’re only without the services of Daniel Carlson and Justin Tucker in Week 8, so finding a startable kicker should be a fairly easy task. Most of the enormous spreads are, not surprisingly, teams with kickers who will already be rostered, but I’ve found some nuggets who should produce for us this week.
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.
Week 7 Recap
Despite the six-team bye week, Week 7 was another solid one for the stream. Nick Folk was K1 on the week with 14 points, followed by Joey Slye with eight points as the K9, and both Brian Johnson and Chase McLaughlin checked in at K11 and K12 with seven fantasy points, making 4-of-6 streamers among the top-12 fantasy kickers.
4for4’s optimal streamer now has 94 points, which puts him at K1 on the season.
