Kicker Outlook Week 2

Mason Crosby (K5) did not enjoy his best season in 2019, racking up seven games of 6.0 fantasy points or fewer. With that said, he averaged nearly 9.0 fantasy points over four of his final five games that season, production that has seemingly carried over into 2020.

Crosby’s 12.0 points in Week 1 was tied for the most amongst all players at his position. This week he gets a plus-matchup against a Lions defense who has now surrendered an average of 9.75 fantasy points to kickers over their last eight games, dating back to last season.

Joey Slye (K6) has proven capable of being a surefire fantasy starter in the past. Over the first six weeks of 2019, no kicker average more points than Slye and his 11.3 ppg. Unfortunately, from that point on, he plummeted all the way down to K23. Slye’s drop in production coincides with the Panthers’ 1-9 record over that span.

Now, with a viable quarterback at the helm, Slye should remain fantasy-relevant for the foreseeable future. Fresh off a 12.0 point outing one week ago, Slye faces off with a Buccaneers team that allowed 10.0 points to Will Lutz in Week 1. Oh, and if that’s not enough reason to slide Slye into your linups, Tampa Bay surrendered the most points to kickers a season ago, including two 15-plus point outings by Slye himself.
