Who to start and who to sit? That’s the question that plagues everyone who plays fantasy football on a weekly basis?
Honestly, it’s the one question you need to answer right in order to do well in this crazy game of fantasy. Will you get it right all the time? No, because football will surprise, especially if you buy into the adage: On any given Sunday, any team can beat any other team.
But relax, we’re here to help you work through those decisions with as much information as you need to be confident in a decision you can stand by. Here are the Week 5 Fantasy Football Kickers to Start.
Matt Prater, Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers
Prater is quietly having himself a year. He has not scored below 7.0 fantasy points this season and has two games with more than 10.0 points, helped by two field goals over 50 yards. Prater continues to be effective and potent on any given week. Arizona has come out firing with an aggressive offense that’s putting up big points each week and that has Prater working more than he has in years while a Detroit Lion. At this rate, he should hit over 30 field goals made for the season, a number he hasn’t reached since 2017.
