Here are two kickers who can give a weekly edge at the kicker position for the 2023 NFL season.

Daniel Carlson, Las Vegas Raiders (ADP: K2)

Anytime you hit the double-digit mark for 50+ yard field goals made in a season, you become a fantasy football asset. And if you’re in a league that awards bonus points for kickers who make 50+ yard field goals, Daniel Carlson is absolutely someone who should be on your radar.

Carlson finished as the top fantasy kicker in 2021 and followed it with a second-place finish in 2022. Draft him with confidence in 2023.

Tyler Bass, Buffalo Bills (ADP: K5)

There has only been one kicker in the league to attempt 50 extra points in each of the last two seasons. In case you needed me to provide the answer… that one player is Tyler Bass.

Bass is a reliable kicker who gets a consistent weekly floor in one of the league’s top-scoring offenses. If you want to avoid kickers on bad offenses to ensure you don’t take a zero at the position, then Bass is the kicker for you.
