Kicker Outlook Week 1

Robbie Gould (K3) battled injuries last season, but when healthy remained one of the most viable fantasy options at the position. This is further evident by the fact that he averaged the seventh-most fantasy points by a kicker in 2019. Gould will face off with the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, who surrendered the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing kickers last season on a per-week basis (8.1).

Younghoe Koo (K7) joined the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 of last season. From that point on, he averaged 11.6 fantasy points per game, the most by any kicker over the final eight weeks of the season. Koo will face off against the Seahawks this week who allowed an average of 9.88 fantasy points over nine of their final 12 games last season.

The Chargers activated Michael Badgley (K8) in Week 9 of last year, over the next eight weeks the “Money Badger” would average the 11th-most fantasy points at his position.

This week Badgley will have a plus-matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals who allowed at least seven fantasy points to opposing kickers in all but three games in 2019 and double-digit outings on eight separate occasions. Cinci finished behind just three teams (Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins) in terms of most fantasy points surrendered per game to the position.
