Do you know who is having a pretty good year when it comes to fantasy kickers? If you've already taken a peek at the rankings below, you obviously know. But I feel like many don't even realize how good of a year Daniel Carlson is having. But I do, and that's why I like him so much more in my Week 11 fantasy kicker rankings than the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR).
Considering how poorly the Raiders' season has gone this may be viewed as a bold statement. But a closer look at the numbers shows just how effective and productive he's been. In fact, if not for Carlson, Las Vegas may be even worse than 2-7.
For starters, Carlson is a perfect 18-for-18 on field goals this season. That by itself is solid, but it could be a ton of 30-yarders. However, Carlson has nailed five from 50 yards and beyond, including a 55-yarder earlier this year. That is impressive.
Yes, I have Carlson behind kicking god Justin Tucker, but Carlson is definitely closing in on Tucker's territory.
Don't have the luxury of Tucker or Carlson on your team? Check out the rest of my Week 11 kicker rankings below.
