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 — just ask anyone who got 15 points from Younghoe Koo in Week 2. 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 3.

3. Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks (43% Rostered)

One of our top streaming kickers in Week 2 as well, Jason Myers fizzled with 5 fantasy points. This Seattle Seahawks team looks built to get into shootouts all season though, having allowed 55 points while scoring 73 through two games, and that should make for plenty of fantasy goodness for Myers. The Dallas Cowboys have been shootout-prone as well, scoring 57 and allowing 59 points through two weeks, and this game has a huge 55.5-point over/under on FanDuel Sportsbook. Look for Myers to get plenty of scoring opportunities.

2. Chris Boswell, Pittsburgh Steelers (31% Rostered)

Chris Boswell has a modest 14 fantasy points through two games in 2020, but his scoring should pick up soon. Ben Roethlisberger is playing well (8.2 adjusted yards per attempt on the season), and the Pittsburgh Steelers have scored 26 points in each of their first two games. A kicker attached to a strong offense like this should put up some solid fantasy numbers, and that's especially the case this week with the Steelers sitting as 4-point home favorites.

1. Rodrigo Blankenship, Indianapolis Colts (6% Rostered)

Rodrigo Blankenship exploded for 14 points fantasy points in the Indianapolis Colts' Week 2 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Hot Rod also had a reasonable 8 points in Week 1, and a missed field goal in that one did leave some points on the board as well. His 7 field goal attempts lead all kickers on the year, and his volume shouldn't fall off much with the Colts favored by a massive 10.5 points (the biggest spread of the week) against the lowly New York Jets.
