In Week 8, the kicker with the third-most fantasy points was Mike Nugent, owned in four percent of Yahoo! leagues. Nugent, taking over for Dan Bailey, barely cracks the top 12 this week. However, with six teams on a bye again, he is worth filling in on fantasy rosters. Dallas puts up plenty of points on offense (although how the Cowboys will fare without Ezekiel Elliott is up in the air) and Nugent should have plenty of opportunities in Week 9 as well.
In Week 9, Harrison Butker is the top-ranked kicker. He had the most fantasy points in Week 8. In the five weeks since he's been Kansas City's kicker, he's missed one field goal and he hasn't missed an extra point. He has given fantasy owners double-digit points in four of the past five games played as well.
Teams on bye: Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles Chargers, Minnesota, New England, Pittsburgh
