Laugh if you want, but this is one of the most important weeks when it comes to finding a kicker on the market. Heading into Week 11, three of the top five kickers, according to ESPN standard scoring, are on a bye, which means you need a solid replacement if you're going to have that same luxury of exceptional scoring from that kicking spot. Here are the top three kickers to stream for this week.

You were right to stream the Titans' kicker last week and you'll be right to do so once again. Succop rewarded streamers last week with 10 points against the Patriots and should have another big performance in him as a follow up effort. Not only does Succop's stock rise as the Titans' offense improves, but he also has the luxury of going against the 31st ranked Colts team against kickers.
2. Cody Parkey, Chicago Bears

Ok, he hit the cross bar four times last week. But outside of that, he's been solid. On Sunday night, you're going to benefit from having a kicker left to help possibly win you your week. The Vikings are one of the best defenses in the league, but they truly thrive in a bend-don't-break situation. They are currently second in the NFL in touchdowns allowed while in the red zone, forcing teams to leave inside the 20 with only three points. That's bad for the Bears, but great for Parkey owners as the Vikings are 30th in kicker points allowed.

Fairbairn is one player who is all over the waiver wire as teams dropped him last week during his bye despite his hot streak. He's as consistent as they come, scoring less than eight just once since the second week of the season. Force those who dropped him to pay as you add him and lock him down for the rest of the year.
