2021 Fantasy Football Week 7 Kicker Rankings

When it comes to critical fantasy football decisions, we’re always focused on quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. Heck, even defense and special teams units get their fair share of attention as well! Yet, what about kickers? Unless your league doesn’t force you to roster one, they still score points for you, and can be the difference between winning and losing your matchup!

This brings me to my Week 7 kicker rankings. You don’t usually see kickers dissected, but that’s what I plan to do today. You’ve probably heard of expected/implied points for other positions, yet not for kickers. Let’s solve that, shall we?

What!? Your league isn’t hosted on Fantrax!? Once you see how Fantrax stacks up to the competition, we think you’ll be singing a different tune next season.

Implied Points (Weeks 1-6)

We know a field-goal attempt is at least three times more valuable than an extra point, but it depends on distance. Thus, a raw field goal attempt is closer to four times more valuable than an extra point. With that in mind, here are the expected points for each kicker thus far, based on their usage:

Tyler Bass currently owns the throne as the top kicker in terms of expected fantasy points, but keep a close eye on Vikings kicker Greg Joseph. Coming into the season, I discussed that Joseph may be a viable streaming kicker based on the fact he was playing for a productive offense and a conservative coach, and that has translated into a lot of fantasy success.

Will Jason Sanders and Younghoe Koo get back to their fantasy production last year? They simply aren’t getting the opportunities you’d hope for, which was to be expected- field goal production in fantasy is unstable year-to-year. Let this be a reminder that kicker rankings aren’t simply just who scored the most points the previous season.
