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 17.
Streaming Kickers Fantasy Football Playoffs Week 17
3. Robbie Gould, San Francisco 49ers (26% Rostered)
Robbie Gould hasn't been too prolific lately, but that could all change this week. He'll face the Houston Texans, who have surrendered the second-most rushing yards in the league and have the NFL's seventh-worst run defense by DVOA. That could lead to a high-scoring day for the San Francisco 49ers' stellar rushing attack. Houston also gives up above-average fantasy production to opposing kickers. This is a nice spot for Gould.
2. Michael Badgley, Indianapolis Colts (27% Rostered)
The Las Vegas Raiders are a bottom-seven scoring defense. They're going to have some trouble against an Indianapolis Colts offense that's averaging 31.2 points per game since Week 6. Michael Badgley has been the ninth-best kicker in fantasy during that stretch, and it's hard to see that changing against the Raiders this week. Badgley should have plenty of scoring opportunities in this one.
1. Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles (20% Rostered)
Jake Elliott has been an absolute beast recently. He's been the best kicker in fantasy since Week 8, scoring 92 points during that span. Elliott has also put up at least 9 points in six of his last eight appearances. Now he gets to face a Washington Football Team that surrendered a whopping 56 points to the Dallas Cowboys last week. Elliott should have no trouble maintaining his hot streak this week.
