Yeah, huge surprise, Justin Tucker is at the top of my Week 7 fantasy kicker rankings.
But what did surprise me is how reluctant his managers are willing to part with him. In one of my leagues, for example, I have Tyler Bass on bye this week. So I needed a kicker.
So I reached out to the Tucker owner in that league, who already announced he is considering playing for next year and is looking for draft picks. What pick would you have offered?
I know that owner likes Tucker as he took him very early in the draft, but I started with a 12th-round pick. That received a very quick, "No." My roster for that league is pretty solid and I really didn't like the kickers on the waiver wire, so I decided to offer a 10th-round pick. Wrong or right to make that offer, that got declined too!
So yeah, if owners are refusing to accept even a 10th-round pick for a freakin' kicker, he probably should be the No. 1 kicker in the league.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota, Philadelphia
