Week 5 K Rankings

The Rams rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein had a terrific preseason but the question was, could the Rams play competitive football to make Zuerlein a starter in fantasy leagues? Through four games the answer is yes, as the Rams look more like the team that competed for a division title in 2010 then there abysmal performance last year.
Their success and Head Coach Jeff Fisher’s trust to use Zuerlein any chance he gets (even up to 60 yards), has made the youngster one of the top fantasy options at his position. One of the better big legs in the game Zuerlein is proving he has the accuracy to be trusted as well. Look to Zuerlein as one of the elites at his position as long as the Rams are playing good football.
What Did We Learn From Week Four?
- With the Vikings playing winning football Blair Walsh continues to play like a starting kicker for fantasy leagues. He should have another productive game against the Titans this week.
- After a big game against the Saints to open the year, but three misses against the Buccaneers shows you why the Ravens looked for another option this off-season. Cundiff doesn’t have one of the stronger legs in the game, and is better left on the waiver wire, most weeks.
Sean’s Week Five Watch List
- Didn’t realize Nate Kaeding was out with an injury last week. Nick Novak came in and filled in as an effective replacement. If Kaeding should miss more time, we’ve witnessed Novak kick well in the past and can start weekly.
- Matt Bryant bounced back after failing to receive an opportunity against the Chargers week three. That said, Bryant continues to see most of his tries from 40 yards in. This should be considered the norm as the Falcons aren’t likely to allow him many long chances.
