Fantasy Football Kicker Streaming Week 17: Give Some Respect to Riley Patterson

Dec 27, 2022
Kicker Streaming Week 17

Every single point matters in the playoffs, and if you’re in that elusive final contest, grabbing the right kicker can be a difference-maker between hoisting the trophy or going home a bridesmaid. It’s never too late to take advantage of what streaming a kicker can provide.

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 16 Recap

It wasn’t too shabby of a week on the kicking stream, as four of my five recommended kickers were among the top 14, with Ryan Succop and Riley Patterson tied for the K5 spot, Greg Joseph coming in as K10, and Jason Sanders checking in tied for K14. Chris Boswell was the lone non-starter as K17 on the week.

4for4's optimal streamer now has 174 points, which still puts him at K1 on the season.

Top Streaming Picks

Riley Patterson (Jaguars) @ Texans

The Jags are vying for a playoff berth and travel to Houston this week for an AFC South matchup with the Texans, where they are favored by 4.5 points, with an implied team total of 24. Riley Patterson gets no respect in the fantasy kicker space, yet he’s K3 in the NFL over the last four weeks (K15 on the season) and has put together three straight weeks of double-digit fantasy output.

This week Patterson gets the props he deserves and is my top streamer, plus he’s only rostered in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
