Kicker Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Justin Tucker is the No. 1 ranked kicker for Week 16 against the New York Giants

Because it's 2020, the top two fantasy kickers for Week 15 were Cairo Santos (owned in one percent of leagues) and Nick Folk (owned in three percent). Sam Ficken (zero percent owned) had the same number of fantasy points as Rodrigo Blankenship and Younghoe Koo. It has been increasingly difficult to predict how fantasy kickers will perform. In general, it's best to have a kicker on an offense that continues to score points. Next, look at how often the team tries a two-point conversion (the Eagles often try for two). Last, look at the weather. Is the game played indoors or outdoors? This is the time of year where snow, wind and ice can definitely play into how well a kicker will perform.

 

Justin Tucker is still the No. 1-ranked kicker for Week 16. The Ravens do play outdoors, but it's hard to argue with a team that scores a lot of points every single week. Tucker also is counted on for long field goals and the team trusts him. Sure, he'll have games where he doesn't wind up in the top five scorers at his position, but he's a solid kicking option. At this point in the season, trust your kicker if they haven't steered you wrong yet. It's the championship week; trust your team.
