There’s really no need to keep a kicker through his bye week, since replacements are usually readily available on the waiver wire and week-to-week the disparity isn’t that huge. That means that if you’re the proud owner of Matt Prater, Matt Bryant, or Alex Henery–it’s time to make a move as those kickers head into their bye week.
Here’s our top 15 kickers that should be started this week. Joining me in this week’s rankings were staff members Steve Copps (SC) and Jeffrey Littrell (JL). Our rankings have been combined to come up with a solid composite ranking which should give you a good idea who to pick up or start this week. NR stands for not rated and counts as 20 for averaging purposes.
There was no unanimous #1 this week as Sebastian Janikowski got two of three first place votes, but still got beat out for the top spot by a unanimous #2-Stephen Gostkowski. There’s been some emerging names the last few weeks so don’t be afraid to make a move to upgrade your position. Here’s our top 15:
|3||Justin Tucker||Bal||at Hou||4.0||7||1||4|
|6||Mason Crosby||GB||at Stl||7.0||5||4||12|
|Garrett Hartley||NO||at TB||9.7||10||12||7|
|12||Jay Feely||Ari||at Min||12.7||15||3||NR|
