2022 Week 16 Fantasy Football Kickers To Stream

If you play in fantasy football leagues, there is a very strong chance that you have to start a kicker. There is also a very strong chance that you will hear at least one person in your league complain that kickers are just random number generators and ruin fantasy football.  Last season, I wondered if this was actually true and if kicker production was just some arbitrary byproduct of football, so I developed a predictive model for kickers. I then started playing a bunch of kicker tournaments for DFS.

By the end of last season, our Twitch DFS Show had a 94.5% return on our investments. To keep it simple, you can predict kicker production with the right methodology. Here is a list of the top kicker options for week sixteen based on tiers. While I have been doing this system for over a year, this is a work in progress for me, so bear with me as I come up with a more refined method of providing. For now, I am creating a tiered system, but ranking everyone overall based on composite scores. At this point, this is much more art than science. Anything in italics is the best in Tier 1 or the worst in Tier 3.

Editor’s Note: I am just putting my system out there regardless of real-life weather conditions, which are expected to be insane this weekend. For the love of God fade all kickers in games with projected 60 mph winds and multiple feet of snow.
