Jake Elliott: Kicker Rankings Week 8

Image placeholder title

In most leagues, Kai Forbath was the highest-scoring fantasykicker in Week 7. He is owned in less than eight percent of fantasy leagues, but this isn't saying to pick him up. Rather, picking a kicker each week is tough. Matt Bryant has been dealing with a back issue, but he's played through it. However, missing two field goals in Week 7 was brutal for his fantasy owners. Dan Bailey left with a groin injury and now should be dropped for fantasy purposes.

For Week 8, Jake Elliott is the top-ranked kicker. He's been less than perfect all season, missing three field goals, but the Eagles' offense is on fire, which means points for everyone — even the kicker. The Eagles face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 8 and should continue their hot offensive streak.
