Streaming Kickers Fantasy Football Week 6
3. Jake Elliott (vs DAL)
Jake Elliott's ankle injury caused his roster percentage to crater in Week 5, presenting an opportunity for managers to nab a kicker tied to one of the best offenses in the league. The Philadelphia Eagles rank second in total yards per game and fifth in points, making Elliott a major fantasy asset. Though he's logged only five field goal tries this year, he's made up for it by attempting the fourth-most PATs (14), and that's despite missing a game. He offers managers a safe floor at a volatile position, and he should thrive against a Dallas defense that's surrendered the seventh-most fantasy points to his position this year.
2. Graham Gano (vs BAL)
Graham Gano looks like one of the best kicker values still widely available. He's been heavily utilized by a New York Giants offense that's finding success moving the ball but failing to score touchdowns. Gano ranks third in field goals made (11) and fourth in attempts (14) so far, all of which have come in just the last four weeks. Baltimore has given up the fifth-most total yards per game this season, so New York should have no problems getting Gano into range. He's a great option for managers who want FG upside.
1. Nick Folk (@ CLE)
Nick Folk is coming off of a monster week as the top kicker in fantasy. He converted all five of his field goal attempts this past Sunday and added two PATs as well, making him a week-winner in some cases. He's in a great spot to keep things going this week with the Cleveland Browns up next, who are giving up a healthy 8.6 fantasy points per game to kickers. New England's offense could struggle to score touchdowns with goal-line machine Damien Harris out, opening the door for Folk to have a big day once again.
