Nine kickers had double-digit fantasy points in Week 4 (depending on league scoring). Of those nine kickers, Rodrigo Blankenship is the most owned at 44 percent. The kicker position is hard to predict and many fantasy leagues have eliminated it from their starting rosters because of this very reason. The three kickers with the most fantasy points in Week 4 were Brandon McManus, Sam Ficken, and Jason Sanders. Combined, those three are owned in 13 percent of fantasy leagues.
Alas, fantasy owners must continue on. Be sure to check your lineups: if you have Matt Prater or Mason Crosby, be on the look-out for a replacement kicker. Blankenship is a solid option, as the Colts' offense has been looking better and better each week. It's important to try to grab a kicker on a team that you think will put up points in a week. Blankenship is ranked No. 7 for Week 5, but as we all know, anything can happen in any given week.
