Top Kickers To Start in Week 5

Harrison Butker, Kansas City Chiefs

Harrison Butker is obviously a very popular play for fantasy managers week in and week out due to the offense that he plays in, but he’s yet to truly deliver a top-tier performance. That could easily change in Week 5 against the Minnesota Vikings and a game that features a massive 52.5-point over/under.

Greg Joseph, Minnesota Vikings

The strategy for identifying the top kickers to play each week should start with finding the game that has the highest projected score and going from there. In Week 5, that would be the Chiefs and the Vikings, which puts Greg Joseph on the radar as a solid streaming option.
