Top Fantasy Football Streaming Kickers for Week 12
By Max Staley
The kicker position is easily the most overlooked part of any fantasy football roster. Most fantasy managers probably drafted a kicker with no plans to think much about the position until their starter's bye week rolled around.
That's leaving points on the board, though. It may not be fun to spend time every week thinking about the kicker position, but it can be incredibly valuable.
With that in mind, here are three kickers, rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! leagues, to target as streaming options in Week 12.
3. Tyler Bass, Buffalo Bills (vs LAC)
Tyler Bass has been an absolute stud lately, putting up at least 14 points in three of his last four outings. That stretch also includes performances of 20 and 18 points, with the 18-point showing coming just last week. It's not a fluke either. Bass is currently tied with the next man on this list for the fifth-most points at the position. He should have no trouble racking up points against a bottom-10 Los Angeles' Chargers' scoring defense.
2. Rodgrigo Blankenship, Indianapolis Colts (vs TEN)
Rodrigo Blankenship's glasses might make him the most recognizable kicker in the game, but that hasn't translated to fantasy recognition quite yet. He's only rostered in 46% of Yahoo! leagues right now despite being tied for the fifth-most points at the position. Against a beatable Tennessee Titans' defense, don't expect the Blankenship to slow down in Week 12.
1. Daniel Carlson, Las Vegas Raiders (at ATL)
Daniel Carlson has been a force this year. He's currently tied atop the fantasy kickers rankings for the year alongside Jason Sanders with 102 points. But for whatever reason, he's only rostered in 50% of Yahoo! leagues. If you're looking for a guy to keep the rest of the way, Carlson is your man. Plus, a matchup with the Atlanta Falcons' bottom-eight scoring defense should lead to a big game in Week 12.
