Fantasy Kicker Rankings Week 15: Who to start, sit at kicker in fantasy football

The fantasy football playoffs are finally here, and that means it’s time to really care about your kicker. That could do more harm than good, but if you’re really trying to get the most unpredictable position in football “good,” then our Week 15 fantasy kicker rankings might help.

As always, we go through the matchup stats and at least factor them slightly into our rankings. Some of the best players have very favorable matchups this week (Matt Prater, Greg Joseph, Graham Gano, Harrison Butker), but there aren’t many guys who stand out as obvious studs or sleepers. It’s always good when a guy like Prater has a good showdown Y he’s kicking indoors, but with only two true indoor games (plus another two at Los Angeles ‘indoor but outdoor stadium), the elements will no doubt play a role in kickers’ decisions this week.

Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST

Because of this, most Fantasy owners will likely stick with the kicker that has been in their lineup most of the season. That’s perfectly fine if we’re talking about Daniel Carlson (@ Browns), Justin Tucker (vs. Packers) or even Nick Folk (@ Colts), who ties the worst matchup statistically but is the number one kicker. Y play indoors this week. No need to worry too much about guys like that, as they are just as likely to kick multiple field goals as anyone.

However, because it’s time to win or go home, you owe it to yourself to check all the options. Guys like Evan McPherson (@ Broncos), Jake Elliott (vs. Washington), and Dustin Hopkins (vs. Chiefs) have been in the top 15 for most of the year, but their ownership is low. They could easily maintain their successful seasons. McPherson also gets the air-kicking advantage from Denver.

If you really want to trust the numbers, you can try Randy Bullock (@ Steelers), Eddy Pineiro (@ Dolphins), Jason Sanders (vs. Jets), or Cairo Santos (vs. Vikings), all of whom are in the top six. clashes. Bullock is our favorite of those “sleepers,” but we all know that any kicker is capable of hitting a three-FG day in any given week.

We also know that having a great kick performance can go a long way toward securing a “W”, so if you’re feeling bold, make a move. If not, that’s fine too. The weather could be the last tiebreaker in this position anyway, so keep your options open and be ready to make a move if necessary. And most of all, I just hope I have good luck. In this position, that’s often the best you can do.

We will update these kicker rankings as needed throughout the week, so check back for the latest player movement.
