Fantasy Football Kicker Streaming Week 16: Jason Sanders With A Leg Up on the Pack
By making it this far, you probably already know how valuable grabbing the right kicker can be. If you’re new here, welcome. It’s never too late to take advantage of what a kicker can add to a roster, especially in the playoffs when every point matters. This week isn’t the best for streaming, as there are 14 teams with fewer than 20 as their implied team total, but I found some potential winners.

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 15 Recap
Last week was not strong in the streaming department, but you were warned. My best kickers were Greg Joseph as K16 and Mason Crosby, who tied for K18, followed by a rough K22 performance by Jake Elliott, with Wil Lutz checking in as K29.
4for4's optimal streamer now has 161 points, which still puts him at K1 on the season.

Jason Sanders (Dolphins) vs. Packers
This is certainly not the first time Jason Sanders has made this column this season, and it may not be the last. The Miami kicker was perfect last Saturday in the tough elements in Buffalo and gets a home tilt this week where the Dolphins are favored by 4.5 points with the second-highest implied team total of the week at 27.
Pickings are indeed slim in Week 16, and Sanders should be solid. He’s available in 82% of Yahoo leagues.
