Top Week 13 Kicker Streamers
Here are my top fantasy kicker streamers, all of whom are rostered in less than 50% of Yahoo leagues.
Cameron Dicker, Los Angeles Chargers (at LV)
Evidently, I’ve become the Cameron Dicker guy. I know he had a down week last week with the Chargers only stalling once in the red zone, but the guy has been absolute money all season.
With Dustin Hopkins on IR, Dicker is the Chargers’ kicker for the remainder of the season. He really shouldn’t be streamable anymore. With most of the NFL past its bye, the top set-it-and-forget-it kickers are all mainstays in fantasy lineups. For reasons I cannot comprehend, Dicker is not being treated the same way.

Last week marked the first time all season that Dicker only attempted a single field goal. Of course, he made it, as he has with every kick he’s attempted this year.
The Chargers’ remaining schedule is quite favorable to offense, especially the next three weeks (at LV, vs. MIA, vs. TEN). The Chargers should be in scoring position plenty. They are not going to convert every attack into a touchdown. Thus, Dicker should have more than enough opportunities. When he gets them, he makes them. Make Dicker your kicker.
Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks (at LAR)
I firmly believe the only reason Jason Myers is available in so many leagues is that the Seahawks had a Week 11 bye and fantasy managers just forgot about him in Week 12. That’s the only explanation I can come up with because Myers has been excellent all season.
The Seahawks’ kicker has missed just one field goal and one extra point all season. He’s been perfect from 40+. Myers has seven games of double-digit fantasy points. That’s fantastic for a kicker.
This week, the Seahawks head to Los Angeles to battle a Rams team that has completely packed it in for 2022. The Rams’ inability to generate any offense should result in the Seahawks having extra scoring opportunities. They won’t all be touchdowns.
Last week, the Rams surrendered four field goals to Harrison Butker. They entered the week allowing the ninth-most fantasy points to kickers. Myers should get to 10 in this one. Stream him.
Greg Joseph, Minnesota Vikings (vs. NYJ)
I hesitate to recommend Greg Joseph because, well, he’s not a very good kicker. However, I really like this spot for him to have several field goal attempts.
The Vikings have a very good offense. That results in more touchdowns than field goal attempts. This week, the Vikings are home against an elite Jets defense. It’s the perfect recipe for the Vikings to be able to move the ball enough to get into scoring range but not be able to finish drives due to the Jets’ strong unit.
Joseph has been perfect from inside 50 this season. Unfortunately, once you get past 50, he’s like the anti-Justin Tucker — he just misses everything. Joseph is 1/6 from 50+. He’s also missed five extra points. So, yeah, this is one of those times where you tell yourself, “the process,” hold your nose, and jump in.
