Check out Marc Caviglia’s fantasy football rankings and hot takes on the Week 4 kicker matchups:
- Randy Bullock doinked a game winning FG for the Bengals in Week 1 but the veteran has been perfect since. Joe Burrow has been able to move the football over the Bengals first three games and this has led to 9 FG attempts and 6 PATs for Bullock. He’s converted 8-of-9 so far and also is a perfect 4-of-4 on kick over 40 yards. I like Bullocks chances of making it three straight weeks with 10-plus fantasy points against a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that allows just under 9 fantasy points per game to opposing kickers.
- Dan Bailey was drafted as a top-10 fantasy kicker to start the season but unforeseen struggles to the Minnesota Vikings have relegated his opportunity. The Vikings defense has been so bad that the offense is spending the majority of the second half needing touchdowns, not field goals, and it has led to Bailey attempting just 4 FGs and 4 PATS over three games. Something tells me that all changes this week in a battle of the 0-3 teams. The Houston Texans have given up 8 made FGs and 9 PATS on the season and allow 11.3 points per game to opposing kickers. Bailey should have plenty of kicking chances on Sunday.
- When your offense is as dialed in as the Seattle Seahawks it’s hard for your kicker to get a bunch of chances. That is exactly what is happening to Jason Myers this season. The veteran kicker has just 1 FG attempt through 3 games but has drilled 14 PATs. His 6 fantasy points per game ranks 29th amongst kickers in fantasy points allowed and I don’t expect Myers to get many kicking chances in South Beach against the Miami Marlins.
Rankings are based on standard scoring:
1 point per PAT
3 points per FG under 39 yards
4 points for FG 40-49 yards
5 points for FG over 50 yards
