This week is primed to be an especially great day for kickers. As the Fantasy Football playoff season begins, there are three place-kickers who are solidified as must-starts for the rest of the season. Moreover, Younghoe Koo has re-emerged as a quality kicking option to add if he’s available in your league. However, it’s good to cut ties with Josh Lambo and Greg Zuerlein, given their team’s offensive inconsistency in week 15.

Will Lutz

Since coming off a bye week in week 10, Will Lutz has been an outstanding fantasy option. He has registered five straight games with at least ten points and kicked at least four extra points in three of his last four games. This season, the Saints are tied for the most field goal conversions in the NFL, indicating that Lutz has one of the highest ceilings in the NFL. Will Lutz is a must-start regardless of matchup, so you need to start him if you’re fortunate enough to have him on your roster.

Harrison Butker

Harrison Butker is currently tied with Will Lutz for the most fantasy points amongst kickers in the NFL. Since week nine, Butker has come in clutch for fantasy owners, with an average of over 12 fantasy points per game. Due to the Chiefs’ high-powered offense, which ranks in the top five for points per contest, Butker is almost always on the field to finish drives with a PAT or FG. Currently, the Chiefs are averaging 2.2 FG conversions per game, which is tied for the most in the NFL. Therefore, it’s safe to say that Butker is a must-start for the entirety of the Fantasy Football Playoffs.

Justin Tucker

For the third straight week in a row, Justin Tucker had a perfect outing. The Ravens’ place-kicker is tied for the highest FG percentage in the NFL amongst all kickers with at least 20 FG attempts. Given that the Ravens’ offense has been the most productive in the league, it’s safe to rely on Tucker to gain a large amount of easy chip shot extra points. Similar to Lutz and Butker, Tucker is a must-start for the Fantasy Playoff season, due to his high floor and ceiling.

Matt Gay

This season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been one of the most electric offenses in the NFL, averaging nearly 30 points per game. As a result, Matt Gay has been a very busy man, who is currently fourth amongst all kickers in terms of fantasy points. This week, the Buccaneers will face off against a Detroit Lions team that can’t find a way to stop opposing offenses. Therefore, all signs point towards Matt Gay being a productive kicker for week 15.

Chris Boswell

Even though the Steelers offense has struggled to gain any momentum, Chris Boswell has been one of the most productive kickers this season. Boswell has made the most of his opportunities by ranking in the top-three for FG percentage amongst all kickers with 20+ FG attempts this season. Since Duck Hodges was inserted as the Steelers starting signal-caller, the Steelers have averaged 2.7 made field goals, which is tied for the fourth most league-wide. Given that the Buffalo Bills have a stout defense, it’s likely that Boswell will be productive for fantasy owners, especially with 20-49 yard FGs.

Younghoe Koo

After being left off the top 10 kickers list last week, Younghoe Koo excelled for 18 fantasy points in week 14. Since being added to the Falcons roster, Koo is averaging the most fantasy points amongst all kickers in the NFL. Koo has scored 10+ fantasy points four of the five games he’s played in this season, meaning that he is a safe, yet productive fantasy asset to have. Atlanta is currently averaging the most FG makes in the NFL since week 11, which means that Koo should remain a fantasy starter for the foreseeable future.

Zane Gonzalez

This year, Gonzalez has been one of the leagues most accurate kickers, with a 90% FG percentage. As of right now, Gonzalez has been the league’s sixth-most productive fantasy kicker in the NFL. Even though Gonzalez has witnessed a downturn in recent weeks, he is still a dependable kicker that you should start if you have him on your roster.

Michael Badgley

Over the last three weeks, the Chargers have begun to lean on Michael Badgley. Since week 11, the Chargers are averaging two FG conversions per game, which ranks in the top ten. During that same timespan, Badgley has been a quality kicking option who is averaging nine points per game. Against a Minnesota Vikings defense that has surrendered 20+ points for four consecutive weeks, you can depend on Badgley to bolster your team.

Stephen Hauschka

Over the past four weeks, Stephen Hauschka has been one of the most dependable place-kickers in the NFL, averaging 10.5 points per game. You can expect Hauschka to have a busy day against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. The Steelers defense is holding opponents to FGs on over 60% of their red-zone trips, which means that Hauschka will have a higher floor than most kickers. If you’re in need of a kicker in week 15, you’d be smart to pick up Hauschka.

Austin Seibert

When the Cleveland Browns compete against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday, you can expect each kicker to have a busy outing. In two of his last three outings, Austin Seibert has scored 11+ fantasy points along with 2+ FGs. You can expect Seibert to have an especially busy day against a Cardinals team that is currently allowing 28.8 points per game this season, which is the third-most in the NFL. Therefore, Seibert is primed for an explosive day this weekend.
