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 16.

Streaming Kickers Fantasy Football Playoffs Week 16

1. Younghoe Koo, Atlanta Falcons (vs DET)

The Atlanta Flacons should have no trouble getting into field goal range against a Detroit Lions' defense that has posted the fourth-worst total DVOA rating in the NFL. That means kicker Younghoe Koo will have plenty of opportunities to rack up fantasy points. The fourth-year pro has only missed two kicks on the year and is owned in over 50% of leagues. He has the skill set to finish as a top-10 kicker on Sunday.

2. Brandon McManus, Denver Broncos (at LV)

It cannot be overstated how important it can be to look at the matchups at hand in these situations. The Raiders are allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing kickers this season and are giving up 26.7 points per game overall (No. 30 in NFL). Denver has scored at least 28 points in each of their last three wins and enter this game as a small 1.5-point underdog. Simply put, a closely contested game should lead to more field goal attempts for Brandon McManus.

3. Brett Maher, New Orleans Saints (vs MIA)

Veteran Brett Maher has filled in nicely for the New Orleans Saints since being named the starter back in Week 11. He has scored double-digit fantasy points in back-to-back games and nailed all three of his field goal attempts last week. Keep in mind that the Dolphins are giving up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing kickers and Maher is only owned in 1% of fantasy leagues. That number is bound to increase if he keeps up his recent success.
