Daily Fantasy Football NFL 2016 Week 5 Experts Kicker Corner top Picks for Fanduel

Welcome to DWL’s Kicker Corner, here we will discuss everyones favorite position on their FanDuel NFL rosters, the kicker !

Jokes aside, many people overlook the importance of their kickers and blindly pick anyone who fits in with the leftover salary they have. Kickers can be a huge part of your weekend being a success as many times kicker ownership percentages are spread out and having the right guy can make or break your week. Lets dive in to Week 5 !

  1. Adam Vinatieri (IND) – ($4,700) vs CHI : This game features a decent over under at 47.5 points with the Colts projected as 4.5 point home favorites. They also come in with a projected team total of 26 points, the 4th highest on the slate, versus the Chicago Bears. Vinatieri has been raking it in s0 far going a perfect 8 for 8 in field goal attempts to kick off the season. At $4,700 he is an affordable option that will also provide you with enough security and upside to be considered in all contest formats.
  2. Mason Crosby (GB) – ($4,500) vs NYG : The packers find themselves as huge home favorites in a game versus the New York Giants that features the second highest Over/Under of the slate. The Packers are projected to score a whopping 27.75 points and since we can snag Crosby at the discounted rate of $4,500 he deserves some major consideration this week.
  3. Justin Tucker  (BAL) – ($5,000) vs WAS : Tucker has been perfect so far in this young NFL season going 11 for 11 on field goal attempts, 8 of which have been from 40+ yards! The lengthy field goals suggest that the Raven’s are having difficulty progressing the ball into the red zone which bodes well for Tucker’s fantasy scoring chances this week. The only slight downgrade towards Tucker would be that the winds as of now are projected 15 mph South West, so be sure to check the wind speed & direction before deploying Tucker this Sunday !
  4. Stephen Gostkowski (NE) – ($5,100) vs  CLE : Gostkowski is shaping up to be one of my favorite GPP plays at kicker this weekend for a couple of reasons. For starters the Patriots are the highest projected scoring offense on the slate coming in at massive 10.5 point road favorites meaning they won’t be shying away from putting points on the board. Gostkowski has been one of the best kickers in the NFL and has started of on an unusual note this season already missing 2 field goals attempts going 6 for 8 from distance. People will forget that he still carries a lot of upside & will likely attract very low levels of ownership here due to recency bias which means that he could very well be the difference maker in your lineups this week.
