Kicker or no Kicker?

Recommended Posts

I have Slye as my lone kicker who is on BYE this week.  I haven't picked up a fill-in yet (I'm waiting for a trade to clear which opened up a roster spot for me so I don't have to drop anyone).  Without a kicker in my lineup, I am projected to win by almost 20.  I know it's only projections, but do I grab Darnold this week, so I have him for Matt Ryan's bye week 9 (Darnold vs MIA) & not play a kicker or grab a kicker and hope I will be able to pick up Darnold after this week?

 

I'm sure I'm not the only one in my league aware that Darnold faces MIA week 9.  One of the "savvier" owners has Goff (bye week 9) & Lamar (vs NE week 9) I fear he may swoop in and grab Darnold if I wait.

Don't know what your record is, but I never trust projections. If you can pick up a kicker from the Eagles, Cowboys, Jets or Patriots and have a comfortable lead you could drop him and pick up Darnold before waivers.

I will do that, thanks

I say play the kicker. If it comes down to points for to get in playoffs you may need them. Also even worse, Fantasy is clearly unpredictable and you can lose on any day. Don’t leave points off the board in my opinion

I have a similar problem in that I have slye on a bye and don’t want to drop him or any other players I have I really want to pick up Steelers defense but they’re in bye as well so I’m thinking I can drop O.J. Howard for the Steelers But I don’t want to do that either
