Fantasy Football 2016 Kicker Rankings: Week 7

Cairo Santos

Cairo Santos

Depending on league scoring, Adam Vinatieri is the leader in terms of fantasy points for kickers. The wily old veteran has made five field goals from 50 yards and out, two more than any other kicker in the league. He's made six field goals from between 40-49 yards, one more than anyone else in the league. Indianapolis plays Tennessee in Week 7, and while this doesn't seem like it will be a high-scoring game, there’s no reason to think Vinatieri won’t see several scoring opportunities.

Justin Tucker and Cairo Santos follow Vinatieri in the Week 7 kicker rankings.  Tucker is tied for second in terms of fantasy points for kickers, while Santos and Kansas City host New Orleans, the team that ranks last in the NFL in scoring defense (33.6 ppg). Santos hasn't been as solid this year as he has been in the past, but Sunday should give him plenty of chances for him to get on the field and put his leg to work.
