Selecting which of your players to start in the right weeks will help you achieve success in the season. The Bruno Boys are here to help you with those crucial decisions, consider the tough matchups and warn you when your studs are facing defensive assignments that should temper your expectations. 

It’s playoff season now and we’re going to look to minimize the risk in our recommendations, while looking for big point potential, but still, staying in that range of the tougher decisions. Here are your Week 16 Fantasy Football Kickers to Sit.

Matt Prater, Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings

Streamers looking for a one-week replacement might like this matchup with the Vikings as they’ve given up the fifth most fantasy points to the position. But a closer look will show that the Vikings defense has solidified in the last month. In just the last four games, they’ve given up a total of five field goals and eight extra points. They’ve allowed no field goals in the bonus area (40-50+ yards) too, making Prater a bad kicker to think of as your Week 16 streamer. Besides, he’s converted just two field goals from 40-49 yards and two from beyond 50.
