Week 17 Start ‘Em: Kickers
Start of the Week
Daniel Carlson at Broncos (4:25 p.m. ET, CBS): Carlson has produced at least nine fantasy points in three straight games, including a 13-point performance in last week’s loss to Miami. He’ll be a top-five kicker this weekend against the Broncos, who have allowed the most fantasy points to enemy kickers. That includes a Week 10 game against the Raiders where Carlson scored 15 points.
Week 17 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em
- Rodrigo Blankenship vs. Jaguars (4:25 p.m. ET, CBS)
- Jason Myers at 49ers (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX)
- Wil Lutz at Panthers (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX)
Week 17 Sit ‘Em: Kickers
Sit of the Week
Harrison Butker vs. Chargers (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX): Butker is one of the top kickers in fantasy football, but his value will take a hit this week with the Chiefs resting starters. The offense won't be nearly as explosive with Chad Henne under center, and I'd be surprised to see much (if any) of Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Kickers matter folks, and there are better options than Butker this weekend.
