Fantasy players that are clear starters will not be included in this article, such as Patrick Mahomes, Christian McCaffrey, and Michael Thomas. All the fantasy stats shown below will be based on a Point Per Reception (PPR) scoring format.
Teams on Bye: Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Minnesota Vikings
Teams Coming off Bye: Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans
Start of the Week: Younghoe Koo vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
No team in the league gives up more points to kickers than the Buccaneers. They are also one of the worst defenses in the league overall. With the Falcons improved play overall this gives there offense plenty of chances on the Buccaneers side of the field which should lead to plenty of opportunities for Younghoe Koo to continue his hot streak. In short, he is a great start.
Other Good Starts:
- Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens vs LA Rams
- Greg Zuerlein, LA Rams vs Baltimore Ravens
- Austin Seibert, Clevland Browns vs Miami Dolphins
Sit of the Week: Brett Maher vs New England Patriots
The Patriots have not allowed a lot of points overall this year. As a result, they haven’t allowed a lot of points to kickers either. The Patriots have not allowed a kicker to get more than eight points all year. Facing a top-rated defense and a game that will be a low scoring contest I would stay far away from any Cowboys player especially Maher.
Other Good Sit:
- Brandon McManus, Denver Broncos vs Buffalo Bills
- Eddy Pineiro, Chicago Bears vs New York Giants
- Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers
