Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Kicker Rankings Week 16

Justin Tucker still No.1 despite playing at Pittsburgh on Christmas Day

As it relates to kickers, the 2016 fantasy season has been all about Justin Tucker. After going three-for-three last week against Philadelphia, Tucker still has yet to miss a field goal or an extra point this season, although the one he had blocked in New England in Week 14 does count as a “miss” on the official stat sheet.

 

Baltimore is in Pittsburgh on Christmas for a game that could determine the AFC North, and even though weather could be a factor, Tucker remains atop the kicker rankings. In Tucker’s case, his track record speaks for itself.

 

Dan Bailey (vs. DET) Steven Hauschka (vs. ARI) won’t have to worry about the weather, so they are both top-five fantasy options. And while Chris Boswell had a high-scoring Week 15 thanks to six made field goals (five from 40-49 yards), he didn't crack the top 20 for Week 16, as Pittsburgh has a tendency to go for two rather than kick the PAT.
