Week 7 Rankings (2019): Top 15 Kickers

5
1013

By now you should know the drill. Target good offenses and strong, efficient kickers, and hope for the best. Of course opponents do come into play, but in reality its the same names (for the most part) week after week. So, let’s dig into how our options rank for Week 7:

  1. Josh Lambo – Jacksonville Jaguars – at Cincinnati
  2. Greg Zuerlein – LA Rams – at Atlanta
  3. Robbie Gould – San Francisco 49ers – at Washington
  4. Matt Prater – Detroit Lions – vs. Minnesota
  5. Harrison Butker – Kansas City Chiefs – at Denver
  6. Zane Gonzalez – Arizona Cardinals – at NY Giants
  7. Brandon McManus – Denver Broncos – vs. Kansas City
  8. Mason Crosby – Green Bay Packers – vs. Oakland
  9. Adam Vinatieri – Indianapolis Colts – vs. Houston
  10. Justin Tucker – Baltimore Ravens – at Seattle
  11. Jake Elliot – Philadelphia Eagles – at Dallas
  12. Stephen Hauschka – Buffalo Bills – vs. Miami
  13. Jason Myers – Seattle Seahawks – vs. Baltimore
  14. Ka’imi Fairbairn – Houston Texans – at Indianapolis
  15. Matt Bryant – Atlanta Falcons – vs. LA Rams

Notes:

  • When in doubt, target Denver. Kicking in the altitude generally works in the favor of Brandon McManus, so let’s target him this week. Currently he is at about 13% ownership in ESPN leagues, so if you are compensating for a bye week or looking to replace a poor performing option, we might have your solution. Both of McManus’ missed field goals have come from beyond 50 yards, but he has been perfect on his four attempts from 40-49 yards. With just nine extra point attempts through the first six weeks Denver’s offense stalls more often than not, which should lead to more field goal attempts.
  • Last season Jason Myers made the Pro Bowl with the Jets, but he has been relatively quiet in 2019 with the Seahawks. The problem for Myers has been that Seattle has been too efficient, as he has just seven field goal attempts this season. When it comes to extra points he has been busy converting 18 of 19 attempts. This week Myers faces a Baltimore team that has turned opposing kickers into Top 10 options, so he might be worth a look.
  • After a rough start to the season that he would like to forget, Adam Vinatieri has gotten back on track. This week the Colts’ kicker is coming out of his bye week, so you shouldn’t have to worry about the position for the rest of the season as long as he continues to produce (and he should continue on his three weeks of success). Over that stretch Vinatieri is seven for eight on field goal attempts (his one miss came from beyond 50 yards) while converting all seven of his extra point attempts. It also works in his favor that Houston has made, on average, opposing kickers Top 5 fantasy options in 2019.

  1. I dont usually ask kicker questions but fairbaim has missed 4 xp and has reached double digit points once. Would you rather own prater or vinatieri who had their bye weeks? Or nugent, Maher, Crosby, or gay after his bye week this week. Thanks

  2. What’s up? Do you go with Damian Williams in PPR or Malcom Brown, Darrell Henderson, Ito Smith, Mark Walton, Latavious Murray? I will be dropping M Brown if answer is anything other than Williams or Brown. Thanks for the time
