The list this week sees a lot of familiar faces. Favorable matchups have brought a couple of kickers into a better position, and a new face in Sam Ficken was included based on the Jets’ solid performance in week 12. If you’re looking for a week 13 kicker, here some suggestions for good pickups off of waivers.

Mason Crosby

The Packers faced a pretty tough San Francisco 49ers team on Sunday, and their offense was held to only 8 points. Regardless, they’re a great offense and I think they’re going to redeem themselves this week. They have a much easier matchup against the Giants, which is perfect for them to recover from their tough loss. Crosby is nearly perfect on the season going 13 of 14 for field goals and 29 of 29 on extra points, so he’s super reliable for the chances that he’ll get on Sunday. Overall a solid add with a good matchup.

Chase McLaughlin

The 49ers have one of the best matchups of the season this week against the Ravens. The Ravens and 49ers are the number one and number two top-scoring teams in the league respectively, so it’s sure to be a high-scoring spectacle. That being said, I think McLaughlin is in for a big game himself. He’s 13 for 17 on field goals and 15 for 15 on extra points, so he’s been fairly reliable, although he has missed a few. I think he’s still a good pickup due to his position on one of the highest-scoring teams in the league.

Younghoe Koo

Koo had a huge jump in ownership from last week, when he was at just 6%. It’s well deserved, too. He’s 10 for 11 on field goals and 5 for 5 on extra points. He gets an average 3.67 field goal attempts per game, which is the most in the league. This makes him a valuable addition to your roster in almost every matchup. The Falcons have a tough matchup against the Saints, but when they met in week 10 they pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the season, topping the Saints 26 to 9. Koo scored 14 points in that matchup. While I don’t necessarily expect the Falcons to dominate the Saints to the same extent, I think Koo is still going to get a fair amount of chances.

Nick Folk

Folk is 3 for 7 on field goals and 3 for 3 on extra points. Despite his accuracy, I think he’s a solid pickup due to his position on a Patriots offense that scores a lot of points, the 5th most in the league on average. They have a matchup against the Texans this week, and I think that powerful Patriots offense is going to put up quite a few points against them. Folk wouldn’t be my first selection off this list, but if you’re feeling good about him or some of the better prospects are already rostered, I think he has the potential for a high single digit to low double digit game against the Texans.

Sam Ficken

The Jets absolutely trounced the Raiders on Sunday. Ficken had a great game, responsible for 10 of the 34 points the Jets scored. The Jets are coming red hot off of this game into a super favorable matchup against the Bengals. I think if they can carry their momentum into this matchup Ficken is bound to have another big game, and at 1% ownership is very likely available in your league.

Jake Elliott

When it comes to field goals Elliott is perfect on the year, nailing all of his 14 attempts. He’s missed a couple of extra points (completing 21 of 23 on the season) but he’s the only place kicker who hasn’t missed a field goal yet, which is a valuable trait. The Eagles’ offense has been having a tough season this year and has been falling short of expectations, but they’re playing the Dolphins on Sunday. The Dolphins are a good chance for the Eagles to get their feet back under them, so I’m expecting more chances than usual for Elliott.

Jason Myers

Myers is 15 of 20 for field goals and 29 of 31 for extra points on the season. The Seahawks are one of the better teams this season and have a pretty powerful offense. That’s why I think he’s still a good choice despite a tough matchup against the Vikings; I think the Seahawks will still be able to put up a fair amount of points. Again, like Folk, Myers wouldn’t be my first choice on this list based on his accuracy. However, he’s likely to be available in your league and is still a relatively solid choice due to his position on one of the better offenses this season.

Austin Seibert

The Browns had a pretty dominant performance against the Steelers when they played two weeks ago, beating them 21-7 and picking off Rudolph 4 times. I’m not expecting them to have as easy of a time against them this week, and therefore I think Seibert is going to get a couple more chances at field goals. He’s 18 for 21 on field goals and 21 of 24 for extra points, so he’s been fairly accurate. I’d say he’s a solid pickup, especially because the Browns’ offense is starting to look pretty strong.

Daniel Carlson

The Raiders are coming off of a tough, tough loss to the Jets last week. They’re playing the Chiefs this week in a game that has huge playoff implications. Carlson is 11 of 15 for field goals and 27 of 28 for extra points this season. The Chiefs have been allowing a lot of points on defense, so I’m expecting Carlson to get a few chances in this important game for the Raiders.

Dan Bailey

Dan Bailey is 15 of 17 on field goals and 30 of 32 on extra points this season. The Vikings are one of the stronger offenses this year, and the Seahawks (their opponent for week 13) allow an average 23.9 points per game, the 12th most in the league. I’m expecting this to be a high-scoring game, and with Bailey’s relative accuracy this season he’s likely to nail any chances that powerful Vikings offense gives him.
