    The Best Kickers To Start in Fantasy Football

    Cameron Dicker, Los Angeles Chargers

    For streaming kickers in fantasy football, you’re eyeing matchups that are going to be high-scoring that will get the kickers onto the field with opportunities. With that in mind, the Chargers’ matchup against Miami figures to see points flying up on the board, and Dicker should be on the field plenty.

    Riley Patterson, Detroit Lions

    The same thought process for Dicker applies to Patterson this week in a high-scoring affair against the Kansas City Chiefs. With this Thursday Night Football matchup, Vegas anticipates this to be the game of the week in terms of most points scored, and that means that we should see Patterson on the field a lot.
