Kicker Outlook Week 5

There aren’t many positions where a player can skyrocket into the top-five in fantasy rankings after just one game. However, here we are. Aldrick Rosas (K5) made his Jaguars debut in Week 4 and he made it a memorable one. The former Pro Bowler racked up 15.0 fantasy points, the fifth-highest output at the position for the week.

Rosas’ production shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The Jaguars offense has proven itself worthy of housing a reliable kicking option. Over the first two weeks of the season, the now-injured Josh Lambo ranked within the top-10 at his position in scoring. Rosas gets himself a plus-matchup in Week 6 as the Houston Texans allow the sixth-most fantasy points to kickers in 2020 with an average of 10.0 points per game.

Sam Ficken (K18) and Jason Sanders (K21) both put up huge numbers this past Sunday, tieing for the position high with 18.0 fantasy points. However, chances are Week 5 won’t be as kind to their fantasy production.

Ficken likely has the better chance of the two to succeed this week, based solely on matchup. Arizona has allowed an average of 10.3 fantasy points to opposing kickers over three of their four games this season. With that said, you’d be putting a lot of faith on not only the Jets offense to put Ficken in a position to succeed, but also the Jets defense to slow Kyler Murray down enough for field goals to remain a relevant source of scoring.

In terms of Sanders, the Dolphins placekicker has a much tougher matchup on his hands. The 49ers have held opposing kickers to 8.0 fantasy points or fewer in all but one game this season. Sanders, on the other hand, has scored 7.0 points or fewer in half of his games this year.
