Jason Sanders A Mid-Level Play In Week 18

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders wasn't able to continue his super hot streak in Week 17 but was able to deliver on a couple of field goals. He made two of them within 39 yards and made his only extra-point attempt of the night against the Baltimore Ravens. He'll welcome the Buffalo Bills into Miami in Week 18 for a game that decides who takes home the number-two seed in the AFC. The last time they played, in Week 4, Sanders only saw two extra points and didn't get to attempt a single field goal. The offense turned in one of their worst performances which shouldn't happen twice to the same team while playing at home. Sanders will likely get plenty of field goal work to make sure they put points on the board and get some home field advantage for the playoffs.

Jason Sanders Carries Streaming Value In Week 17

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders has been on a bit of a hot streak since starting the season off very slowly. In Week 16, he posted his best fantasy performance of the season after making three 50-yarders, one 30-yarder, and then icing the game on a 29-yarder while adding an extra point. After two double-digit fantasy outings in the first nine games, he now has five such performances in the last six games. The offense is going up against the Baltimore Ravens who have given up some big fantasy weeks to opposing kickers since the defense tends to force opposing offenses to stall in the red zone and field goal range. Sanders can be considered a strong streaming option in Week 17.

Jason Sanders A Viable Option In Week 16

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders posted another double-digit fantasy performance in Week 15 after making a 20-yarder and two 30-yarders while adding on three extra points. He now has four double-digit outings in five games since their Week 10 bye after posting just two in the first nine weeks. Even though the Dallas Cowboys have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing kickers, the Dolphins have a good enough offense to move the ball into field goal range. As long as the offense doesn't get completely stifled, Sanders should post a quality game. If needed, Sanders can serve as a streaming option, but he's not a must-start kicker at this moment.

Jason Sanders A Streaming Option In Week 15

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders missed one of his three field goal attempts in Week 14 while making all three extra-point attempts. If he could knock through his 40-yarder, he would have finished with a fourth consecutive double-digit fantasy performance. Against the New York Jets in Week 15, the offense is likely to stall if the passing game can't get into a rhythm. Which means there should be more kicking opportunities for Sanders. He's not exactly trustworthy as a top kicker, since he sits at K20 this season, but he could be started in a pinch for those trying to get through the first round of fantasy playoffs.

Jason Sanders A Quality Play In Week 14

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders has now strung together three quality outings in a row as he's scored double-digit fantasy points in each one of them. In Week 13, he was able to make his lone field goal attempt, which was a 40-yarder, and make all six of his extra points. The Dolphins' offense is likely to turn in another big day against the Tennessee Titans so Sanders should be a beneficiary with plenty of extra point attempts. The Titans have also given up the second-most fantasy points to kickers this season. Sanders can be considered a high-level streaming option in this matchup.

Jason Sanders A Solid Streaming Option In Week 13

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders had an eight-week streak of single-digit fantasy outcomes until the last two weeks. In Week 12, Sanders made a 38 and 54-yard field goal while making all four of his extra-point attempts. The Dolphins offense is likely to turn in a big week against a weak Commanders defense and Sanders will benefit from the extra point work. On top of that, they'll likely be within field goal range often in this game so Sanders is bound to at least get a couple of opportunities. He can be considered a solid streaming option in this matchup.

Jason Sanders A Low Level Option In Week 12

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders finally got some more opportunities in Week 11 and turned it into double-digit fantasy points for the first time since Week 3. That earlier game came from 10 extra points against the Broncos, so his last double-digit point with actual field goal attempts was in Week 1. He made two of his three attempts and made both extra points against the Raiders because the offense seemed to stall quite a lot. Against the New York Jets in Week 12, the offense has a greater chance at stalling in field goal range which gives Sanders some value this time. He can be considered a lower-level option with some upside since the Jets have kept opponents under 20 points in about half of their games this season.

Jason Sanders Better Left On The Bench In Week 11

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders has kicked a total of just nine field goals this season and has made seven of them. In comparison, he's kicked 37 extra points and made 36 of those. His fantasy points are mainly coming from extra points as the Dolphins' offense has been a touchdown machine. This trend shouldn't be much different against the Las Vegas Raiders as the Dolphins should be able to gash the defense on the ground and even pass over top of it at any given chance. Sanders isn't on the fantasy radar right now as there are kickers getting a lot more opportunities on the waiver wire.

Jason Sanders Not A Trustworthy Option In Week 9

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders made his lone field goal attempt from 30 yards out against the New England Patriots in Week 8 and he also made all four extra point attempts. He's now made 34 of his 35 extra points and seven of his nine field goal attempts. Sanders has only attempted more than one field goal in a game twice this year and that was in Weeks 1 and 2. There are better options on the waiver wire that attempt more field goals on a regular basis than Sanders. At this point, he's not a trustworthy fantasy option until he starts seeing more opportunities.

Jason Sanders Looking For More Opportunities In Week 8

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders knocked through his only field goal attempt of the game in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles while making both of his extra-point attempts as well. He now hasn't missed a field goal since Week 2 against the New England Patriots, which happens to be the matchup waiting for him in Week 8. The Patriots defense does have a habit of slowing down the Dolphins offense and Sanders did get three field goal attempts in their prior matchup. He's likely looking at the same sort of work in Week 8 and should be considered a mid-level option.

Oct 27, 2023 7:10 PM EST

Jason Sanders Hard To Trust In Week 7

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders saw another week where he didn't even attempt a field goal but put up some points through six extra-point attempts. He's only gotten the chance to kick seven field goals through six games so far and he's knocked in five of them. His accuracy hasn't been the issue, he just hasn't seen the opportunities because the Dolphins offense is a touchdown machine. If Sanders finally gets more field goal chances, then he'd be more relevant, but right now he's the 20th-ranked kicker in fantasy. There are better options on the waiver wire than Sanders at this moment.

Jason Sanders Remains A Solid Option In Week 6

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders has seen a very inconsistent amount of field goal work since the team's offense has been able to put up so many touchdowns. With all of that scoring, he is at least raking in points off of extra-point attempts like when he netted 10 fantasy points in Week 3. The offense is likely to score in bunches against the Panthers in Week 6, but all he needs is one or two field goals to go with the extra points to make his fantasy outing worthwhile. Fantasy managers can play Sanders as a mid-level option with some upside to get into double-digit fantasy points.

Oct 13, 2023 9:33 PM EST

Jason Sanders Shows Mid-Level Appeal In Week 5

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders didn't attempt any field goals for the second straight week in Week 4 while knocking down both of his extra-point attempts. He's currently 4-for-6 on field goals for the season so far and 18-for-19 on extra points. Week 5 should be more of a return to normalcy after the offense struggled against Buffalo and exploded for 70 points against Denver in the week prior. A regular game script benefits Sanders the most as he should see some more field goal opportunities. He presents as a solid streaming option for kickers on bye but seems to be shaky as a rest-of-season addition.

Jason Sanders A Locked-In Fantasy Starter

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders managed to etch his name into the history books during Week 3's 70-point barrage versus the Denver Broncos, breaking the NFL record for most extra points in a single game (10). Miami's blazing-hot offense has seen the 27-year-old attempt only six field goals (four makes) with a league-high 17 extra points. The Dolphins may need to keep scoring touchdowns at a frenetic pace to match the equally impressive Buffalo Bills offense in Week 4. Even so, Sanders could be summoned for more action in what projects to be a neutral scoring environment that may not see game script glaringly oppose either side at any point. The former All-Pro is a top-notch option for Sunday's probable shootout.

Jason Sanders A Low End Play In Week 3

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders is on the lower end of the top-12 kicking options heading into Week 3 against the Denver Broncos. He posted a great game in Week 1 during the shootout against the Chargers but only made one of his three field goal attempts in Week 2 against the Patriots. Sanders seems to be more relevant in streaming situations when the Dolphins are in for a high-scoring affair. The Broncos don't have a great defense but kickers have only averaged seven fantasy points per game against them so far. There are better options out there, but Sanders isn't the worst play this week.

Jason Sanders Misses Two Field Goals Against Patriots

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders has seen better games as he proved in Week 1. In Week 2, however, he missed two of his three field goal attempts but salvaged a few points by knocking through all three of his extra points. The good news is that Sanders made the closer field goal within 39 yards, but he had a 49-yarder that was blocked and a 55-yarder that missed wide left. The upside for Sanders is the fact that he continues to get a solid volume of opportunities since the Dolphins offense can move the ball more often than not. He should still be considered a mid-level option at kicker heading into Week 3.

Jason Sanders - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders saw a ton of action in the team's Week 1 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He put through all three of his field goal attempts and three out of four extra points. While the offense is good enough to move the ball into field goal territory, the matchup against the Patriots doesn't project the same amount of action as he saw in Week 1. Sanders is still a mid-level option at kicker, but his 14 fantasy points from their first game doesn't seem as likely this time around.

Sep 15, 2023 11:17 PM EST

Jason Sanders Productive Despite Missed Extra Point

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders was relatively productive on Sunday, going 3-for-3 on field goals and 3-for-4 on extra points. His longest kick came from 45 yards out. Sanders' performance benefitted from a shootout-style game between Miami and Los Angeles. He should be viewed as a fringe top-12 fantasy kicker as long as the Dolphins continue to score points.

Sep 10, 2023 9:01 PM EST

Jason Sanders A Fringe Fantasy Option In Week 1

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders is a borderline top-12 fantasy kicker heading into Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Sanders was solid at times last season, but never enough to solidify himself as a stable fantasy option week in and week out. Heading into the 2023 campaign, Sanders' upside gets a boost thanks to Miami's high expectations on offense. With that said, though, head coach Mike McDaniel isn't afraid to go for it on fourth-and-short, taking Sanders' leg out of the game at times. If you're planning to swing for the fences with your kicker, you should probably deploy someone other than Sanders. He'll likely gain fantasy relevance as injuries and bye weeks start to take their toll on the crop of available kickers.

Clutch to end regular season

Sanders converted all three of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 11-6 win over the Jets.
