Top Kickers To Start in Week 14

Greg Joseph, Minnesota Vikings (at LV)

Fantasy managers were disappointed with the Minnesota Vikings’ offensive output in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears, but Chicago’s defense has actually become a formidable unit over the course of this season. However, the Las Vegas Raiders defense should be a much easier matchup for this offense in Week 14.

With Justin Jefferson expected to return to the lineup here this next week, we should see Minnesota be able to move the ball much more efficiently and effectively against the Raiders, which will put Greg Joseph into scoring opportunities regularly. He’s a solid option for fantasy lineups, especially considering that they’ll be playing in Allegiant Stadium.

Tyler Bass, Buffalo Bills (at KC)

Identifying the kicker that you’re going to start in fantasy football comes down to opportunity. How regularly do you believe they’ll see the field and be put in a position to score?

In this matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs, we could see plenty of fireworks and scoring opportunities for Tyler Bass.

The weather in Kansas City will be something to monitor as we move throughout the week, but Bass is plenty used to kicking in less-than-ideal conditions. He’s a solid start for fantasy managers in a critical week that will determine postseason seeding.
