Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Kicker Rankings Week 15

Justin Tucker still No. 1 despite technically "missing" a field goal attempt on Monday night

Technically, Justin Tucker missed a field goal in Week 14, but he’s still fantasy’s No. 1 kicker. And to be fair, the attempt was blocked on an amazing play by New England linebacker Shea McClellin. So even though it counts as a miss on the stat sheet, it doesn’t change on bit how we feel about Tucker, the best kicker in the league.

 

Tucker is No. 1 because he has the most fantasy points in the league. Next in this respect is Matt Bryant, who has a nice matchup with Atlanta hosting lowly San Francisco.

 

At this point in the season, a solid kicker should be part of your roster. However, in December, weather will affect kickers more than any other player on the field. If you are looking to stream kickers, find ones that are playing indoors or in warm weather. That is the reason why normally top options like Mason Crosby and Stephen Gostkowski have dropped in the rankings for Week 15.
