2021 Fantasy Football Week 10 Kicker Rankings

When it comes to critical fantasy football decisions, we’re always focused on quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. Heck, even defense and special teams units get their fair share of attention as well! Yet, what about kickers? Unless your league doesn’t force you to roster one, they still score points for you, and can be the difference between winning and losing your matchup!

This brings me to my Week 7 kicker rankings. You don’t usually see kickers dissected, but that’s what I plan to do today. You’ve probably heard of expected/implied points for other positions, yet not for kickers. Let’s solve that, shall we?

We know a field-goal attempt is at least three times more valuable than an extra point, but it depends on distance. Thus, a raw field goal attempt is closer to four times more valuable than an extra point. With that in mind, here are the expected points for each kicker thus far, based on their usage:

When healthy this season, Rodrigo Blankenship had been the top kicker in terms of usage this season, and it’s a shame that won’t continue with the offense playing better. Meanwhile, Greg Joseph and Nick Folk don’t get enough credit of being consistent fantasy kickers. Then, there is Brian Johnson. Head coach Sean Payton tends to be on the conservative side of the spectrum, and Johnson is benefitting from that. If New Orleans is able to have an efficient enough offense, Johnson could be a useful streamer, which some teams will need with Greg Zuerlein on the COVID-19 list. Well, to be honest, you’re best off just having Zuerlein’s replacement be your starter next week.
