Kicker Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 17

Greg Zuerlein, Dallas Cowboys

"Greg the Leg" could be the one who carries you to a fantasy championship this week

So we have a somewhat new name at No. 1 this week in my Week 17 fantasy kicker rankings. 

Our new top option is Greg Zuerlein. And he's had a pretty good season. He's currently the 11th-best kicker in fantasy football but he's been the fourth-best K over the last three weeks.

Kicking eight extra points last week will certainly help boost your value. However, in the three weeks prior to that, Zuerlein was a perfect 9-for-9 on field goals, including a 55-yarder against the Saints.

Arizona, Zuerlein's opponent this week has meanwhile given up 37 fantasy points to kickers over the last three weeks. See why I might have "Greg the Leg" as my No. 1 option this week.
