This week, we’re going to look at the “Rest of the Season” rankings from FantasyPros.com, along with our Week 6 Kicker rankings to get a good idea of what Fantasy Football owners should do in the coming weeks, as bye weeks roll along.
When we look at “Rest of the Season” rankings for kickers, we understand that in normal-sized leagues, without injured reserve spots, kickers should probably just be cut when they are on a bye week. This opens up a roster spot to fill with a non-bye week kicker, and the same thing happens the following week.
Even the great Stephen Gostkowski isn’t worth holding onto unconditionally. If you have room, that’s fine. Or if you have a dud at another position that you can sacrifice, that’s cool. But you’re also keeping your team from adding a player at another position that might be a good sleeper candidate or handcuff.
