Kicker Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 4

Kicker Rankings Week 16: Justin Tucker

Fresh off of his record-setting field goal, Justin Tucker heads to the Mile High City

I know, it's shocking to see Justin Tucker at the top of my fantasy kicker rankings for Week 4. I had him as the top option in my Week 3 rankings, but it's not like he did anything too remarkable, right?

For those who have no idea what I am talking about, I'll spare you the editorials. Here you go:

Social media exploded with all kinds of reactions. And controversy of course. And funny memes. And so on. But that's Week 3. Looking ahead to Week 4, the scary part is he might even have a more remarkable game. For one, Tucker actually missed a field goal earlier in the game. Secondly, I remind everyone that the Ravens travel to Denver this week in a game that is a near pick 'em. If the books have it right, we could see FGs play an even more important part at a stadium where the air is thin and balls travel even farther.

So yeah, surprise surprise, Tucker is atop my rankings for Week 4. But my biggest riser this week is Younghoe Koo. Because here's a little interesting tidbit for you: The Washington Football Team has given up more fantasy points to kickers this year than any other team.

As much of a lock that Tucker would be atop my rankings this week, it's as much of a lock that Koo will be a top-10 fantasy kicker this week. Treat that info accordingly.
