Two of last week's top five scoring fantasy kickers are rostered in less than 10% of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues.

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 13.

Streaming Kickers Fantasy Football Week 13

3. Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles (at NYJ)

Even after a down week in Week 12, Jake Elliott is on an absolute tear. He has 14-plus fantasy points in three of his last five games, ranking third among all kickers with 11.2 fantasy points per game in that stretch. He has no business being on the waiver wire in so many leagues, and should have zero trouble bouncing back this week against the lowly New York Jets.

2. Evan McPherson, Cincinnati Bengals (vs LAC)

The Los Angeles Chargers have allowed their opponents to score points on 46.4% of their offensive drives this season. That's the second-highest rate in the NFL, trailing only the Jets. Whether it's field goals or extra points, that should mean plenty of scoring opportunities for Evan McPherson. The Cincinnati Bengals' kicker has attempted 7-plus kicks in three of his last five games, and he's scored double-digit fantasy points in four of his last six.

1. Michael Badgley, Indianapolis Colts (at HOU)

The Houston Texans are another defense that allowed opponents to score at a top-10 rate, and Michael Badgley is another kicker rolling lately. He's averaged 8.3 fantasy points per game since joining the Indianapolis Colts, notching 11 points in two of his last three. Badgley has been perfect across seven games in Indy (28-of-28 on extra points and 10-of-10 on field goals), and he should get plenty more opportunities to shine this week.
