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 14.
Fantasy Kickers to Stream Week 14
3. Ryan Succop, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs MIN)
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have lost two straight heading into their bye week, but they also scored 24 points in each of those games, giving them at least 24 in six of their last seven. That kind of offensive output puts Ryan Succop in a consistently favorable spot for fantasy production. In those six 24-plus point games for the Bucs, Succop has averaged 10.0 fantasy points per game. Tampa will have a great chance of scoring at least that much against the Minnesota Vikings, who have allowed 27.4 points per game — the seventh-most in the NFL — on the season.
2. Stephen Gostkowski, Tennessee Titans (at JAX)
The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the few teams allowing more points per game than the Vikes, at 29.3. That has also translated to opposing kickers putting up top-five fantasy numbers against the Jags. Gostkowski has scored at least 9 fantasy points in two of his last three games, and he also dropped 11 in his first meeting with the Jaguars this season.
1. Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers (at DET)
Mason Crosby's recent lull in fantasy production isn't too worrying, because it's been partially due to the Green Bay Packers' offense being too good. He has attempted 17 extra points compared to just 3 field goals over the last four games. For comparison, before that stretch he had 11 field goal attempts and 29 extra point attempts, scoring double-digit fantasy points in four of his previous eight games. The Packers should be spending a ton of time in Detroit Lions territory this week, as 7.5-point favorites in a game with a week-high 55.5-point over/under, and that means Crosby's upside is through the roof.
