The fantasy playoffs are on the line this week, which means you need production from every single position. That means you can't deal with kickers who have simply filled in a spot every week at the bottom of your lineup. With Chris Boswell likely on his way out as the Steelers kicker, even more owners find themselves looking for a replacement.
Here are those kickers who can be plugged in your lineup as your fantasy saviors.

You never want to hitch your wagon to a dying offense, unless that player happens to kick. The Bengals have had a harder time scoring with Jeff Driskel at quarterback and A.J. Green out for the season. That has worked well for Randy Bullock, who put up 11 points last week in standard scoring formats. Up next is an Oakland Raiders team, which is 27th in kicker defense this season.

Ryan Succop has been a streaming answer before and he will be again. While he has been average with scores of five, five, eight, and six over the past few weeks, it's still consistent. Plus, Succop has the luxury of going against the New York Giants, who are dead last against kickers this season. With the Giants giving up double-digit points six times, you can't go wrong with a ceiling as high as Succop's.

Why in the world is this man available in so many leagues? He isn't owned in over 75 percent of leagues despite the fact that he's tied for the most points from a kicker in standard scoring leagues. It doesn't matter that he's playing against the Texans, who allow the 10th-fewest points to kickers. He hasn't missed more than one field goal in his last eight weeks and has been as solid as they come from a position that needs fire.
