It’s been said before, but it’s just a fact: Kicker is the most important position in fantasy football. We all know it, even if we don’t want to admit it. Nothing — nothing — is more exciting than a perfectly executed snap, hold, and kick through the uprights. It’s poetry in motion and the true essence of sport. As such, it’s no surprise that our Week 4 fantasy kicker rankings will be the most read set of rankings of the week. 

Obviously, everything we just said is a lie. No one cares about kickers or kicker rankings — unless you’re one of the unlucky losers who faced Stephen Gostkowski or Joey Slye last week. However, because most fantasy owners refuse to eliminate the kicker position out of some weird sense of tradition (or just laziness), we’re happy to provide an ordered list of the top kickers every week. 

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight End | D/ST

It’s more of the same at the top of the rankings, as the best kickers in the best situations haven’t drastically changed. We’re starting to learn more about which matchups seem to be beneficial for kickers, but a team’s offense and the kicking environment (i.e. indoors vs. outdoors, favorable weather conditions, etc.) are still more important — after a kicker’s accuracy and leg strength, of course. There are just four indoor games this week, so there aren’t a ton of kickers noticeably rising because of that advantage. The risers are due more to kickers on decent offenses playing against bad defenses. Sometimes, it’s that easy.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight End | D/ST

We’ll continue to update our kicker rankings to throughout the week, so check back for updates.
