Through 10 games, the kicker with the most fantasy points (depending on league scoring) is Matt Bryant. He was on bye last week, so he wasn’t a part of an injury-marred Week 11 that also saw kickers missing at a record rate – there were 11 missed PATs alone.
In Bryant’s last game, he did miss an extra point and a field goal. It was his first missed PAT and just his second unsuccessful field goal, both coming from beyond 50 yards. Because of his volume (tied for second-most PAT attempts, fifth in FGs) and the fact he’s at home, Bryant regains the top spot in the fantasy kicker rankings for Week 12.
And speaking of accuracy, Dan Bailey is one of nine kickers who have yet to miss a PAT this season. Bailey also has just missed two of his 21 field goal attempts, and those were between 40-49 yards out. Dallas’ offense is hot right now and has a Thanksgiving Day date with archrival Washington. Bailey checks in at No. 2 for this week.
