As both Week 12 fantasy football and winter approach, it’s time to look at kicker rankings and top streamers for the week. While you’re sitting down this Thursday to enjoy food with people who you share copious genetic markers with, remember that there are a lot of games on Thursday so don’t forget to set your lineups.
As you’re setting those fantasy lineups, I’ve highlighted a couple of kickers who I think are in for big fantasy weeks.
Younghoe Koo @ Jacksonville Jaguars
If you’re reading this and thinking, so he just picked out the guy playing against a horrible team and is recommending you start him?, you have cracked the code. The Jaguars are giving up the 8th-most points to opposing offenses, and even the stuck-in-the-mud-without-Cordarrelle Falcons should be able to move the ball on the road in Duval. If you’ve keep Koo on your roster, now’s the time to plug him in!
Justin Tucker vs Cleveland Browns
If you have Justin Tucker I imagine you’re starting him, but each week I am amazed at how highly he is ranked. Justin Tucker is one of if not the best kickers in the game, but this is fantasy football and that doesn’t matter. Tucker, as a fantasy player, is a middling asset that his routinely ranked inside the top 5. I don’t get it, and this felt like the place to have this conversation with myself.
