Fantasy Football Kicker Streaming Week 9: Back at it With Jake Elliott
We’re without the services of six kickers in Week 9—most of whom aren’t regular starters—so finding a streamable kicker should be a fairly easy task. The top few 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 8 Recap
It was a mixed bag on the kicking stream as two of my players ended among the top six in fantasy points (Jason Meyers - K3 & Mike Badgley- K6), while Jason Sanders and Jake Elliott were serviceable as K15 and K18, respectively. Greg Joseph did not produce as expected, as he came in as K26 with just four fantasy points.
4for4's optimal streamer now has 86 points, which puts him at K1 on the season.
Top Streaming Picks
Jake Elliott (Eagles) @ Texans
I’m sure you’re tired of seeing Jake Elliott in this column, but the process continues to point to him week after week. This Thursday, the Eagles are favored by 14 points and boast the second-highest team-implied total of the week at 29.50 points.
Elliott is still only rostered in 27% of Yahoo leagues, and he should have a solid chance to add to your totals in Week 9.
