Ka’imi Fairbairn, K, Houston Texans
Fairbairn converted on both of his field goal attempts and extra points in a Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots. With the Texans offense back to full health it’s evident they will score more points in 2018 and because of this, Fairbairn needs to be on your fantasy football waiver wire radar.
Not only does Fairbairn get to take advantage of kicking indoors nine times this season, he also has a very favorable schedule based on opponents defensive stats from a year ago. Fantasy owners need to take this into consideration when working their waiver wire in Week 2.
Next up, Fairbairn and the Texans travel to Tennessee to take on a Titans team that allowed 2 field goals and 3 PAT’s to the Miami Dolphins in Week 1 and that seems to be a good baseline for Fairbairn this week. Stream him on your waiver wire and if he does well, don’t be afraid to keep him in Week 3 against the New York Giants and in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.
