The kicker position is easily the most overlooked part of any fantasy football roster. Most fantasy players 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, these three kickers, all available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues, are great options to grab off the waiver wire to start in Week 2.
3. Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks (39% Rostered)
The New England Patriots are a much tougher matchup than the Atlanta Falcons, but the Seattle Seahawks' offense looks like the real deal in 2020. Pete Carroll is finally letting Russell Wilson sling it, and that means this team should do a ton of scoring. Myers only got 1 field goal attempt (to 5 extra point attempts) in Week 1, so the tougher matchup isn't even really much of a negative. Myers is especially interesting because, if Seattle keeps this up, he could be a top-five fantasy kicker the rest of the way.
2. Ryan Succop, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (16% Rostered)
Ryan Succop missed a field goal in Week 1, but it's hard to fault him for a 54-yarder getting blocked. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as heavy 9.5-point favorites in a game with a strong 48.5-point over/under, and that 29-point implied total points to a big game for their offense. That should translate to plenty of scoring opportunities for Succop.
1. Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers (24% Rostered)
The Green Bay Packers were one of the big surprises in Week 1, as Aaron Rodgers turned the clock back with an MVP-caliber outing against the Minnesota Vikings. The Pack get an even easier matchup in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions. Crosby tied for second among all kickers with 11 fantasy points last week, and checks in as the No. 5 kicker in our Week 2 fantasy rankings.
