Three kickers scored at least 12 fantasy points in Week 1. None of the three had an average draft position (ADP) inside the top 12 kickers heading into the season.
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 2.
Streaming Kickers Fantasy Football Week 2
3. Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks
It looks like we're in the "Russ is cooking" stage of the Seattle Seahawks' season, and that means they're doing plenty of scoring. That actually hurt Jason Myers' fantasy production in Week 1, as he wasn't called upon for a single field goal attempt (while going 4/4 on extra points). With a Week 2 matchup against the Tennessee Titans, who just surrendered 38 points to the Arizona Cardinals (and 8 fantasy points to Matt Prater), Seattle should keep up the scoring barrage. Slightly better FG/XP luck would give Myers big upside here.
2. Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers
A mainstay of this column last year, Mason Crosby was the Green Bay Packers' only scorer in Week 1. The Pack should look a lot more competent in Week 2 in a get-right spot against the Detroit Lions, who are early contenders for the NFL's worst team in 2021. Crosby hit double-digit fantasy points in 25% of his games last season and had at least 8 fantasy points in five of 16 games. The fantasy upside is definitely there when the Packers' offense is clicking.
1. Chase McLaughlin, Cleveland Browns
Chase McLaughlin is in a similar boat to Myers. The Cleveland Browns' offense was clicking, but he ended up only attempting extra points. The Browns are projected to be one of Week 2's highest scoring teams as 12.5-point favorites in a game with a 48.5-point over/under on FanDuel Sportsbook. A high-scoring blowout (meaning less incentive to go for it on 4th down in scoring position) is the absolute ideal spot for a fantasy kicker.
