In what was predicted to be a blowout, fantasyowners happily picked up new Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey and inserted him into their lineups. We all know how that turned out — Bailey rewarded his new owners with a goose egg. Truth be told, it was no fault of his own as he didn't even attempt a kick. However, it was a rude awakening that not everything will go to plan, in fantasy, in the games, and in life. Bailey is the No. 11 kicker this week as the matchup on Thursday night against the Rams won't be easy, but he should finish with at least one fantasy point.
In Week 3, Wil Lutz scored the most fantasy points among kickers. He is the No. 3 kicker for Week 4. Justin Tucker impressed as he hit two field goals from beyond 50 yards. He's the No. 5 kicker for Week 4 as he heads to the rough terrain at Heinz field. Harrison Butker is the top-ranked kicker for Week 4 mainly because the Kansas City offense is firing on all cylinders lately, and he's been on target as well.
