A shockwave was despatched via the fantasy soccer world final Sunday when Jacksonville introduced that Stephen Hauschka was inactive and Aldrick Rosas can be changing him. Thankfully, our kicker rankings had been able to information via discovering a last-minute alternative on the waiver wire. Our Week 5 version is able to do the identical ought to one other kicker emergency come up — or even when it is only a common kicker drawback like changing your starter who’s on bye.
Solely half of the above paragraph is true. Our Week 5 fantasy kickers are right here that will help you within the occasion of a kicker emergency, however nobody really cared about Hauschka being dominated inactive. He is a most likely a pleasant man (I imply, he did not appropriate folks for years once they had been spelling his title unsuitable), however he is probably not fantasy-relevant this yr. Even much less so: Aldrick Rosas.
Heading into Week 5, we have not seen rather a lot to make us drastically change the names on the high of our rankings. Sam Sloman and Tyler Bass are rising, particularly with favorable matchups this week, and Ryan Succop continues to fall after exhibiting shaky accuracy and is headed for a sport in a possible powerful kicking atmosphere (@ Chicago).
Inexperienced Bay’s Mason Crosby and Detroit’s Matt Prater are each on bye this week, and since each are fantasy regulars, you is perhaps in search of a alternative. There aren’t an abundance of indoor video games — no less than, for gamers who aren’t already closely owned — however Ka’aimi Fairbairn (vs. Jaguars) is in play if a strong out of doors kicker like Sloman or Bass is not out there.
We additionally really feel the necessity to remind you that you just should not hold two kickers in your roster until there are important extenuating circumstances (and there hardly ever are). Prater and Crosby will not be adequate to fret about shedding, so drop them and decide up another person. You may be superb, belief us.
We’ll proceed to replace our kicker rankings to all through the week, so test again for updates.
