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 13.

Fantasy Kickers to Stream Week 13

3. Chris Boswell, Pittsburgh Steelers (vs WAS)

Fantasy managers who were counting on Chris Boswell in Week 12 have been burned by the scheduling fiasco, but one way or another the Pittsburgh Steelers should be back in action against the Washington Football Team in Week 13. Pending that Ravens game, Chris Boswell has scored 29 fantasy points across his last three outings. He's also scored at least 8 points in nine of his 10 games this season. That consistency makes it surprising that he's available in so many leagues, and has made him a strong streaming pick all season.

2. Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks (vs NYG)

Speaking of kickers who shouldn't be available in nearly as many leagues as they are, Jason Myers is attached to one of the NFL's best offenses. That has hurt his floor at times, since the Seattle Seahawks don't always have to settle for field goals as often. But It has also given him big upside, as we've seen with double-digit fantasy scores coming in four of his last six games. He's averaging 9.7 fantasy points per game in that stretch.

1. Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers (vs PHI)

Mason Crosby didn't attempt a single field goal in Week 12 as the Green Bay Packers destroyed the Chicago Bears. He did kick 6 extra points though, and he has attempted at least four kicks in four of his last five games. Like we've seen with Myers, when the offense is hot and those kicks are predominantly extra points, it hurts Crosby's floor. The Packers consistently finding themselves in scoring range, though, is ultimately great news for Crosby's fantasy outlook in any given week.
