Nick Folk On Fantasy Radar After Strong Start

Thursday, September 21, 12:32 PM

Tennessee Titans kicker Nick Folk made five field goals in the Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints then made two field goals, including a game-winner in overtime, in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He has made all of his field goal and extra point tries through two weeks, placing him on the fantasy football radar. However, the Titans' offense will likely struggle to move the ball against the fierce Cleveland Browns defense in Week 3, making Folk a risky play at the kicker spot. He is the No. 6 kicker in total fantasy points so far, but he carries a boom-or-bust outlook into Week 3 given the matchup.

Cairo Santos Not an Ideal Week 1 Streaming Option

Thursday, September 7, 5:35 PM

Chicago Bears kicker Cairo Santos had over 91% of his field goal attempts last season. The veteran kicker only missed two field goals in 2022. However, he did miss five extra-point attempts. Santos returned for his fourth consecutive year with the Bears this season despite some minor struggles last year. Unfortunately, the Chicago kicker has limited fantasy value in Week 1. Last year, he averaged only 6.1 fantasy points per game, making him the 27th-highest-scoring kicker. More importantly, he faces the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Santos scored only 11 fantasy points in the two matchups against the NFC North rivals last season. Fantasy players can find a better streaming option on the waiver wire than Santos.
