Top Kickers To Start in Week 13

Jason Sanders, Miami Dolphins

Jason Sanders wasn’t necessarily a viable fantasy starter for the majority of the season, but after Miami’s bye week, he’s been a very solid option for fantasy lineups with two top-six finishes in back-to-back weeks.

In a matchup against the Washington Commanders defense this week, the Dolphins should rack up points and put Sanders onto the field with regularity.

Jake Moody, San Francisco 49ers

Jake Moody started the season out on fire, but he’s fallen off a bit here in recent weeks and has been a bit hit or miss. However, we could see points flying up on the board this week in a Sunday afternoon showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Weather may be an issue, as it’s going to be in Philadelphia. But the projected over/under should entice fantasy managers to get Moody into their starting lineups, as the 49ers will have a bit longer time off than the Eagles, too.
