Week 6 Fantasy Rankings: KickerSporting News — email@example.com (Sporting News)
Week 6 fantasy kicker rankings are without a name that we'd grown very accustomed to: Stephen Gostkowski. The Patriots are now relying on Mike Nugent as their kicker, and he's simply not as talented as Gostkowski. Nugent becomes a borderline starting kicker in the high-powered New England offense, but there are better options.
This is the part of the program where we say if Carolina's Joey Slye is still unowned in your league, pick him up. Dude is a stud. Graham Gano isn't gonna have his job whenever he's healthy enough to return. In a deeper league, Austin Seibert could be worth a pickup if your kicker stinks because Seibert has played well in his rookie season for Cleveland.
If your kicker is on a bye this week, both Jason Sanders of the Dolphins and Dustin Hopkins of the Redskins are low owned and playing each other in a game that should see a lot of points on Sunday.
The kickers on bye in Week 6 are Stephen Hauschka, Adam Vinatieri, Eddy Pineiro, and Daniel Carlson. Matt Prater and Jason Sanders will return after a week off.
Reminder: These rankings will be adjusted throughout week if there are injuries, cuts, or weather concerns, so check back often for the latest updates!
