The Top Kickers To Start in Week 16

Jason Myers, Seattle Seahawks (at TEN)

Analysis by Jason Katz | Last week against the Philadelphia Eagles was the exact type of game in which you shouldn’t start a guy like Jason Myers. He was kicking in bad weather as an underdog playing with a backup quarterback.

This week, circumstances are much better. The Seattle Seahawks are getting Geno Smith back, which will be great for their overall scoring opportunities. While they are on the road, there are no weather concerns in Tennessee, and the Seahawks are favored against a Titans team that should be without Will Levis.

Myers has attempted at least one field goal in every game this season. Over his last six, the only two games in which he failed to attempt multiple field goals were against the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.

This is a great spot for Myers to hit double-digit fantasy points.

Will Lutz, Denver Broncos (vs. NE)

Analysis by Kyle Soppe | At the kicker position, I want access to upside, and these teams playing at altitude certainly give us that.

Wil Lutz has scored 15+ fantasy points on three occasions this season, and he hasn’t missed a field goal since the Week 9 bye.

The matchup with the New England Patriots isn’t great in terms of overall offensive production, but that doesn’t mean a kicker like Lutz — multiple field goal attempts in nine games this season — can’t produce top-10 numbers.
