Here are your Week 5 Fantasy Football Kickers to Start.
Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Minnesota Vikings
Before the season started, we pegged the Vikings as one of the best defenses in the league. They might still be that but right now, they’re not playing like it. Minnesota is good and they’ve got great players but it’s definitely not as elite as we originally thought. For example, they allowed six kickers to score double-digit points on them in 2017 and were stingy against nearly every position. This season, they allowed the first three kickers to score double-digits, and last week, allowed one field goal and five extra points. The Vikings are the most generous defense against kickers this season and even though Philly has their problems, they can move the ball into the red zone at least and that’s all Elliott needs. – Ernie Estrella
