Start: Stephen Gostkowski, New England Patriots
@ Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills have been a goldmine when it comes to fantasy football production. They are allowing a ton of points per game which has been good news for opposing kickers. This week it’s Stephen Gostkowski who looks to capitalize on this matchup.
New England is averaging over 30 points per game which makes Gostkowski as strong fantasy play each week. His history with the team means that Bill Belichick won’t hesitate to let Gostkowski try a longer field goal.
Sit: Chris Boswell, Pittsburgh Steelers
vs. Cleveland Browns
Chris Boswell is a steady kicker who has had plenty of success with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s one of the few kickers who has shown good accuracy at Heintz field. However, that is still a tough place for a kicker to play.
This season has been a different story for Boswell who is really struggling. He is only connecting on 62% of his field goals and has already missed three extra points.
His struggles have hurt the team’s trust in his ability. The Steelers have shown they are now more likely to go for a first down than attempt a long field goal. Overall, Boswell is someone I’m avoiding until he gets things turned around.
