Chase McLaughlin is now the Colts kicker and is a solid fantasy option
To be fair, when I predicted last week that Jason Sanders was not going to score a touchdown again, that was true. However, if fantasy owners picked him up after his big game in Week 13, they were rewarded when he kicked SEVEN field goals in Week 14. Five were from under 40 yards, one was under 50 and one was over 50. That all added up to make him the kicker with the most fantasy points in Week 14. He's ranked No. 15 this week, and it's hard to say he won't do it again, but odds are he's not going to kick that many field goals again.
One kicker to keep an eye on is Chase McLaughlin. He was the kicker for the 49ers; now he's with the Colts. He made a field goal from beyond 50 yards out in Week 14 and has been an all-around solid kicker this year. More importantly, Adam Vinatieri was put on injured reserve, so the job is McLaughlin's presumably for the rest of the season. He's ranked No. 15 for Week 15.
