Fantasy Kicker Streamers and Rankings Week 14: Targets Include Riley Patterson, Matt Gay, and Others

Heading into Week 14 with only two teams on a bye, which kickers should fantasy football managers target this week?

Most leagues only have one more regular-season game before the fantasy football playoffs begin, and tons of managers know they are in “win or go home” type of situations. Those points from your kicker might make or break your playoff hopes. Which kickers should you target this week on the waiver wire to stream heading into Week 14?

Top Kicker Streamers for Week 14

Byes: Arizona Cardinals, Washington Commanders

Younghoe Koo, ATL(vs. TB) – 60% Rostered

Younghoe Koo is rostered more than some of the other streaming candidates but is worth a look. His consistency and talent pay off on any fantasy manager’s roster. He was perfect in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints and scored eight fantasy points this week against the Jets. Next week, Atlanta takes on Tampa Bay, and he is a good streaming option.

Riley Patterson, DET (@ CHI) – 58% Rostered

Detroit’s Riley Patterson had an excellent bounce-back week after his rough fantasy showing in Week 12 against Green Bay. He scored nine fantasy points against the Saints with two field goals and three PATs.

Patterson is a good option for most of the fantasy playoffs — next week, the Lions are in Chicago, but after that, they have two dome games, one at home against Denver and one at Minnesota.

Matt Gay, IND (@ CIN) – 37% Rostered

Matt Gay continues to be a great fantasy start. He has double-digit fantasy points in four out of the last five games and has been kicking multiple field goals in almost every game.

Gay is another kicker with a great schedule through the fantasy playoffs on a team that will be fighting to win every game in the hopes of stealing the AFC South from the Jaguars. The Colts are in Cincinnati next week against the Bengals, then have the Steelers, the Falcons, and the Raiders.

Matt Ammendola, HOU (@ NYJ) – 6% Rostered

Texans Matt Ammendola was elevated to the active roster on Saturday, and he kicked for his fourth straight game for them against Denver. Ammendola might have kicked his last ball for the Texans, as Ka’imi Fairbairn, who has been sidelined with a quad injury, might return next week.

Whichever kicker is back for Houston in Week 14 is a good streaming option against the New York Jets. Fairbairn is rostered even less than Ammendola, coming in at 1%.

Greg Joseph, MIN (@ LV) – 6% Rostered

The Vikings enjoyed a Week 13 bye, but previous to that, kicker Greg Joseph was serviceable for fantasy managers. He scored at least eight fantasy points in five of the last seven weeks, and in Week 14, he gets to kick in a dome against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Especially with the chatter about perhaps making a change at QB, Joseph could have some more opportunities to attempt field goals. He has 18 field goals on the year, with three of them coming from over 50 yards.
