Six kickers put up at least 12 fantasy points in Week 1. Half of those players held an average draft position (ADP) higher than top-12 at the position entering Week 1 of the season.
Kicker is one of the most high-variance positions in fantasy football, and their production tends to be more about the offense they're tied to and their weekly matchup than any sort of individual skill. That makes it the perfect position to stream in fantasy football.
With that in mind, here are our top fantasy football streaming kickers for Week 2.
Streaming Kickers Fantasy Football Week 2
3. Ryan Succop, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@ NO)
Ryan Succop was the main component of Tampa Bay's slow and steady offense in Week 1, knocking down 4-of-5 field goals and a single extra point on the team's lone TD score of the game. The Buccaneers offensive firepower is legit, and even if a solid Saints defense can slow them down again like the Cowboys did, Tom Brady will at least get his team in FG position. Last year's second-best offensive (in terms of yards) should find the end zone more than once against a Saints team that gave up 26 points to Marcus Mariota's Falcons.
2. Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles (vs MIN)
This VIkings-Eagles matchup poses some of the best offensive fantasy names in football between the likes of Justin Jefferson, Jalen Hurts and Dalvin Cook. Points will fly in this game. The Eagles just put up 38 points in Week 1, which led to five extra points from Jake Elliott. With a healthy over/under total of 51.5 points, expect the kickers to get involved. Minnesota's defense look great in Week 1, but is fresh off a season allowing top-10 points and the third-most yards. The Vikings didn't transform into the league's best defense in one offseason, meaning points will come in bunches.
1. Greg Joseph, Minnesota Vikings (@ PHI)
We're sticking with this thrilling Vikings-Eagles matchup and simply changing sidelines. Greg Joseph capped off the fifth-most fantasy points by a kicker in Week 1, including 3-for-3 on field goals and a pair of extra points. The Eagles defense turned out a far worse Week 1 performance than Minnesota, allowing 38 points and 455 total yards to the Lions. Minnesota' offense will hum in this Monday Night Football clash, setting Joseph up for a lot of scoring opportunities.
