Fantasy kicker rankings week 16: who to start with, sit on the kicker in fantasy football

If you’re still alive in your fantasy football playoffs, then deciding who to start on the kicker is more important than it should be for you. If you’re the type to overthink such decisions, we’re here to pile more on your plate with our Week 16 fantasy kicker rankings.

Here’s some good news: There are seven indoor games this week (Colts-Cardinals, Lions-Falcons, Rams-Vikings, Chargers-Texans, Broncos-Raiders, Washington-Cowboys and Dolphins-Saints). If you want to make your life a little easier and not have to worry about reading the weather reports all weekend, just find a guy on one of these teams. Brandon McManus (@ Raiders), Younghoe Koo (vs. Lions), Brett Maher (vs. Dolphins), and Brian Johnson (@ Cowboys) have great matchups and belong to less than 50 percent of the leagues, so those are your best sleepers. . . Matt Gay (@ Vikings) is the best combination of production, confrontation and safety, but you can never go wrong with Daniel Carlson (against Broncos), Greg Zuerlein (against Washington) or Dustin Hopkins (@ Texans).

Matt Prater (against the Colts) is tough because he’s normally dependable, but he faces the toughest defense against fantasy kickers. That doesn’t worry us too much because we know that any kicker, especially one on a good offense, can produce in any game, but we just wanted you to notice.

If you like to play matchups, check out these widely available options with favorable opponents: Jake Elliott (vs. Giants), Jason Myers (vs. Bears), Eddy Pineiro (vs. Jaguars), and Jason Sanders (@ Saints)). Elliott is the only one who has produced consistently this season, so as long as the weather is decent in Jersey, Elliott is a solid play.

Ultimately, matchups only matter so much to kickers, so don’t overdo it. If your kicker has been working for you, then you might as well roll with him. Of course, all COVID problems can affect kickers even if they are active. If an offense is significantly weakened because it comes down to its third quarterback or no multiple weapons, then it is reasonable to expect fewer scoring opportunities. You have much bigger alignment issues to worry about, but don’t make this position an afterthought.

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