There was some really weird upheaval in the kicker rankings this preseason. I don’t remember another preseason like it. Now Brandon McManus is kicking for the Broncos, Josh Scobee is kicking for the Steelers and Josh Lambo is booting it for the Chargers. Like I said, weird.

In Week 17 we have a lot of potential game scripts. Let’s talk about some of them. Just to be clear, I know you might have two-week championship weeks so your season-long team may still be going. But I’m going to focus mostly on daily fantasy football this week, the final week of the NFL […]
As we’ve done for the last few weeks, kickers with strong matchups get a boost and those without a good matchup get a few points subtracted. Kickers are near impossible to predict — for instance, Cody Parkey has a “bad” matchup but still went bananas on Thanksgiving Day.
I usually don’t throw the boom or bust tag on the kicker projections, but I crunched some matchup numbers and made some manual adjustments. That’s why Kai Forbath, Graham Gano, Blair Walsh and Ryan Succop are all in the top six this week.
It’s always a good bet to play kickers and defenses on teams expected to score a lot of points. It shouldn’t be a surprise to see Mike Nugent — against the Jaguars — and Steven Hauschka — against the Raiders — atop the list this week.
I’ve stopped calling the kicker projections boom or bust. Kicker fantasy totals can get pretty random Blair Walsh is 24th on the list, but separated from first by only four points. Minnesota is expected to struggle against Tampa Bay, so maybe Walsh gets an extra try or two and finishes as K1.
