For fantasy owners, picking a kicker is the last thing on their mind. They draft a kicker in the last round of their draft (hopefully!) and they stick with that guy until his bye week. Typically there aren't many injuries to kickers (although this year there have been more than usual). Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on Matt Bryant, who has missed time, and Giorgio Tavecchio has filled in nicely. Tavecchio is only about 11 percent owned, so if Bryant misses another week, look to pick up Tavecchio. Also, Caleb Sturgis has been dropped by the Chargers, so be sure he's not on your team as well.
In Week 8, Chicago's Cody Parkey was the top scorer among kickers. He's only owned in eight percent of fantasy leagues. The Bears aren't going to play the Bills every week, but Parkey is still ranked No. 9 for Week 10. The top-ranked kicker for Week 10 is Harrison Butker. The Kansas City Chiefs haven't scored less than 27 points in a game all season. When that many points are being scored, the kicker is going to be active. The Chiefs face the Cardinals in Week 10 and Butker should continue to have plenty of opportunities.
Teams on bye: Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Minnesota
