Week 13 fantasy football brings with it another set of kicker rankings and top streamers.
What a week for the kickers, eh? Daniel Carlson and Nick Folk scored more than the WR16 in PPR. Folk and Carlson would have barely missed the top 12 fantasy running backs for Week 12 with their 18 fantasy points over the weekend.
See, kickers matter! Let me hear all the stories about how you found out you were playing against Nick Folk or Daniel Carlson and lost because of it this weekend!
This week we’ll see the K1, Nick Folk lead his team against an upstart Buffalo Bills squad led by Tyler ‘Drop-that’ Bass in what fans of the beautiful game from around the world are expected to tune in. Let’s just hope this contest doesn’t come down to costly mistakes from these young QBs.
Jake Elliot @ New York Jets
Elliot has had a couple of big games and he’s laid a few eggs, but after all he is an Eagle.
Against the Jets, even this sputtering Eagles offense should be able to move the ball well, and so I’m pegging this as one of the good games you’ll get out of Elliot this year. The correlation between being a very bad team and giving up a lot of points to opposing kickers is pretty strong with the Detroit Lions the worst vs kickers, the Jets are 2nd-worst, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are 3rd-worst, yikes.
Harrison Butker vs Denver Broncos
The Chiefs offense hasn’t been quite as prolific this year, and so Harrison Butker has, as one might expect, taken a step back in the overall kicker ranks. This week, though, the Chiefs play on Sunday night, and with such little difference between the 4th and 15th ranked kicker, playing Butker for the sheer joy of watching your kicker in Prime Time is the type of move I’d make if I needed to pick up a kicker.
