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 percent of Yahoo! leagues, to target as streaming options in Week 16.

3. Cody Parkey, Cleveland Browns (at NYJ)

Cody Parkey only scored 2 fantasy points in Week 15, so it's fair if you did a double-take seeing his name here. He has scored 8-plus points in three of his last five games, however, and a matchup with the New York Jets is about as good as it gets. The Browns are a safe bet to get into scoring range regularly this week, and even the unfortunately inconsistent Parkey should have little trouble converting that to strong fantasy output.

2. Cairo Santos, Chicago Bears (at JAX)

The Jacksonville Jaguars rank dead-last in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric, and the Chicago Bears are another team that shouldn't have much trouble racking up points. Cairo Santos has missed just one of his 44 kicks (extra points and field goals) over his last 11 games, and he's put up double-digit fantasy points in each of his last two games. Expect him to keep rolling this week.

1. Tyler Bass, Buffalo Bills (at NE)

It's a real surprise that Tyler Bass is still available in over 50% of leagues. He hasn't scored fewer than 8 fantasy points in a game since Week 8, and in his last eight contests he's averaging 12.1 fantasy points per game. Even if we extend our view to the entire season, Bass' 9.5 fantasy points per game are tied for third among all kickers who have played in at least three games.
