Week 14 Fantasy Kicker Rankings


The byes are officially over, the fantasy football playoffs have arrived for most of you, and our Week 14 fantasy kicker rankings are strong to quite strong. We won’t say “very strong,” as several regular starters have tough matchups, but there are still plenty of sleeper options who can come in and get the job done in your must-win matchup.

Of course, that implies you would actually change your kicker at this point in the season, which most of you probably won’t. Honestly, we don’t blame you. Just because a matchup is unfavorable on paper doesn’t really mean that much at this position. Sure, we still factor it into our rankings because we have to use some objective criteria for evaluating 32 kickers, but when it comes to your individual decision, we wouldn’t blame you for ignoring certain stats and just going with the guy who’s been decent for you most of the year. 

WEEK 14 STANDARD RANKINGS: 
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST

That said, it’s important to at least weigh your options and consider all factors, starting with weather conditions. A few of our top options are in potentially risky environments (Justin Tucker in Cleveland, Randy Bullock in Cincinnati, Greg Zuerlein in Cincinnati), so make sure you know the forecasts ahead of kickoff. From there, you can look at recent performance, then follow that up with a look at the matchup.

WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: 
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST

Some guys, like Matt Prater (vs. Green Bay), Wil Lutz (vs. Eagles), and Michael Badgley (vs. Falcons), have been solid and are in stadiums with roofs, but they have tough statistical matchups. You could argue they’re safer than some of the guys above them in our rankings because of their big legs and stable kicking environments, so be all means, use them if you’d like. There’s no guarantee Brandon McManus (@ Panthers), Zuerlein (@ Bengals), or Graham Gano (vs. Cardinals) will be any better.

It’s always tough choosing a kicker this time of year. More accurately, it’s always tough choosing a kicker but you just notice it more when you make the wrong choice this time of year. The easiest thing to do is just use someone decent playing indoors. There’s nothing wrong with that, but if you trust the matchup stats, you might be able to find someone better.
