Kicker Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 8

Tyler Bass, Buffalo Bills

If Tyler Bass was dropped because he was on bye last week you may want to reel him in before someone else hooks him

Maybe Tyler Bass should not be atop my fantasy kicker rankings for Week 8 or the ECR (Expert Consensus Rankings) for that matter. But he is.

And it makes too much sense. He does not have the most fantasy points of any kicker. However, had it not been for a bye last week, he easily might. He does have the most fantasy points per game among his peers.

And the good news is he's getting plenty of opportunities when it comes to both PATs and field goals, so unlike some other kickers, Bass is not dependent on his team stalling out when they get into scoring range. Unlike some of the other top-10 fantasy kickers, he also has yet to miss an extra point. And with the exception of going one-for-two on field goals of 50 or more yards, he has yet to miss any of his 3-pointers this season as well.

All that, plus the fact that Miami, Buffalo's opponent this week, has allowed the third-most fantasy points to kickers. No need to fish around, Bass is the "reel" deal this week.
