Fantasy Kicker Rankings Week 13: Who to start, sit at kicker in fantasy football



Every start ’em, sit ’em decision gets a little more important as we enter the final few weeks of the fantasy football regular season, and that includes kicker. Of course, you can drive yourself crazy trying to find the best booter, so let our Week 13 fantasy kicker rankings help you.ย 

Matchup-wise, a few of the top kickers stand out a little more than usual. Greg Joseph (@ Lions), Matt Prater (@ Bears), Greg Zuerlein (@ Saints), and the surging Jake Elliott (@ Jets) are all in the top six thanks, in part, to top-five statistical matchups. Joseph and Zuerlein get the added bonus of playing indoors.

WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST

Other kickers with top matchups include Evan McPherson (vs. Chargers), Graham Gano (@ Dolphins), Brett Maher (vs. Cowboys), and Joey Slye (@ย Raiders). Among that group, Maher and Slye are playing indoors

WEEK 13 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST

This time of year, we always have to watch out for the weather, especially when top kickers are playing in places like Pittsburgh (Justin Tucker), Buffalo (Nick Folk andย Tyler Bass), and Cincinnati (Dustin Hopkins). Even if it’s cold, these kickers should be fine if there’s little wind, rain, or snow, but as soon as the elements kick in, everything becomes at least slightly more difficult. You don’t have to go overboard and bench any kicker because a little bit of snow is in the forecast, but obviously high winds or blowing snow can affect offenses as a whole, especially kickers.

WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS: DraftKings | FanDuel | Yahoo

The Panthers, Browns, Packers, and Titans are off this week, and none feature a kicker owned in more than 44 percent of leagues. However, Randy Bullock and Zane Gonzalez have been top-12 kickers this year, so at least a few owners might be on the lookout for a new kicker this week. If you’re in the boat, we always caution against carrying two kickers at once. No matter how good Bullock has been for you, drop him and pick up someone new as a free agent (not on waivers). Waiver and roster spots are too valuable this time of year to waste on kickers.
