2021 Fantasy Football Week 6 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!

Week 6 Implied Points

WEEK 6 BYES: ATL, NYJ, SF, NO

This brings me to my Week 6 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:

I expect the Titans to be a better red-zone offense eventually, but Randy Bullock is only rostered in 2% of Yahoo leagues. That needs to change! Also, it’s humorous to see Mason Crosby move up so high after he attempted seven field goals on Sunday, mainly because he couldn’t convert on multiple game-winning field goal attempts.

Jason Myers is officially a kicker you can cut following the injury to Russell Wilson, while we continue to wait and see if Harrison Butker will accumulate the fantasy value expected of the top-drafted kicker this offseason. Tyler Bass appears to have taken the reigns as the lead man, with a strong middle tier developing as well.
