While this week’s list has many of the same names as it did last week, some players have moved up, and some down. Mike Nugent was the starting kicker for the Patriots, so now we have a name for the mysterious blank space from last week’s article. Here are the top kickers for week 7.
Surprise surprise, Justin Tucker is #1 on the list again. Justin Tucker became the fastest kicker to ever hit 1,000 points on Sunday, hitting this milestone in just 118 games. He’s also the most accurate kicker the NFL has ever seen, with a career 90.6% accuracy rating. Especially in today’s offense-heavy NFL, Tucker is such a valuable player for the Ravens. Unless he gets injured, I’m almost positive Tucker will top this list almost every week, especially because he’s part of such a powerful offense.
Butker has been very accurate this year, only missing two field goals and one extra point on the season. And with the amount of touchdowns the Chiefs score, he’s had a lot of chances to miss more than one extra point. He’s kicked 20 extra points, tied for the most in the leaguee Much like Tucker, he’s a reliable kicker, and he gets a lot of chances at the ball due to the high power Chiefs offense. He’s another great kicker and if you’re lucky enough to be in a league where he hasn’t been picked up yet, get him before it’s too late.
The Jets have allowed an average of 10 points for visiting kickers this season. This is going to be a favorable matchup for any kicker. It’s even more favorable for Nugent however, as the Patriots are likely to put up a lot of points against the Jets. More points and more yards for the Patriots means more chances for Nugent, which means more points for people with Nugent on their fantasy Roster.
Zuerlein has a great matchup this week, against a Falcons defense that’s been allowing a lot of points this season. He fell a little lower on the list after a missed field goal that would have won the game against the Seahawks, but his matchup this week is too good to be overlooked. He’s still an accurate kicker with a lot of skill, and despite his fluke against the Seahawks he’s a great kicker to have on your roster.
Will Lutz has also been really consistent this year. 13 for 14 on field goals and 11 for 12 on extra points, putting him near the top of the league with a 93% completion rate. Also part of an elite offense, he’s going to get a lot of chances at the ball just like Butker, Tucker, and Zuerlien will. With Drew Brees out for another month or so, it was to be seen if the Saint’s offense would still be as efficient. I think Teddy Bridgewater has more than stepped up to the plate, and while the Saints’ offense won’t be as good without Brees, they’re still a powerful team. That being said, Lutz is going to get a lot of chances, and his stats show he will nail them.
The Texans had a huge game on Sunday, putting up 53 points against the Falcons. Fairbairn was pretty accurate on Sunday, and has been pretty accurate this season in general with an 82.4% completion rate so far. The Texans offense has really been ramping up this season, and with their offensive line playing pretty well this season, they’re looking strong. While the Chiefs obviously have a high powered offense, their defense is not nearly as strong. The game on Sunday is most likely going to be a shootout, which means a lot of chances for Fairbairn.
Josh Lambo is still perfect on the year hitting 14 of 14 field goals and 9 of 9 extra points. He gets an average of 2.33 chances per game and nails every one of them. The reason he isn’t higher is because the Panthers haven’t been getting many chances at extra points this season, so he doesn’t get as many points on fantasy. Lambo and the Jaguars have a good matchup this week, however, as their run game has been doing very well lately and the Bengals have been pretty easy to run against this season. Lambo’s looking at the potential for a lot of fantasy points this Sunday.
Gonzales is ranked the highest in the league for attempts per game, with 2.67 on average. While his defense isn’t the best in the league, he still gets a lot of chances. Their offense isn’t good enough to score a ton of touchdowns, but they’re still good enough to get Gonzalez into field goal range pretty consistently. He’s still going to rack up some points for your fantasy team, but maybe not as many as those higher ranked.
Crosby is at a strong 88% completion percentage this season, making 10 of11 field goals and 16 of 16 extra points. The reason he’s ranked lower on this list is because he doesn’t get very many attempts. He gets an average of 1.6 field goal attempts per game, and while he’s made all but one, that’s not the most conducive to fantasy points. However, he’s accurate and part of a powerful offense, which makes him a strong choice.
Matt Prater is an overall solid choice. He’s 12 for 14 on field goals (86% accurate on the season) and 11 for 12 on extra points. The Lions have been a powerful team this season, and therefore Prater is going to get a lot of chances this season. While this matchup isn’t going to be their easiest of the season, the Lions have a couple of easier games coming up where Prater will probably have an above average game. Overall, he just makes this list due to his reliable nature and his position on a team with a good offense.
