In Week 8, Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri became the all-time leading scorer in NFL history, passing fellow great Morten Anderson.
Vinatieri won't be able to add to his total this weekend, with the Colts on a bye, but here are three streaming options to replace him, or whoever your current kicker is, in Week 9.
Graham Gano, Carolina Panthers: Gano hit three field goals and three extra points last week in the Panthers 36-21 win over the Ravens and now Carolina takes on the Bucs porous defense on Sunday. While Gano only has 11 field-goal attempts on the season, he has made every one of them. Tampa Bay gives up a league-high 33.3 points per game, meaning he'll likely have lots of opportunities to add to that total this week.
Brett Maher, Dallas Cowboys: Maher is already a top-10 kicker and he clearly enjoys kicking at AT&T Stadium, going 10-for-10 in three games at Jerry's World this season. In his last two home games, he's racked up at least 15 points, including two 50-plus-yard makes. That's a good omen as the Cowboys host the Titans.
Dan Bailey, Minnesota Vikings: I've seen Bailey get dropped in a lot of leagues and I'm honestly not sure why. Yes, he scored just two points last week against the Saints, but New Orleans gives up the second-fewest fantasy points to kickers this season. Bailey had scored 10-plus points in the Vikings' previous four contests and is playing at home in a dome again this weekend against a Lions team that allows more than 25 points per game. He has the chance to be a top-five kicker this week.
