Kickers or No Kickers, DraftKings Doesn’t Use Them, Should You? – It’s The Todd Wright Fantasy Football Podcast

April 21st, 2018

Can you imagine how much different life would have been for Jason Licht as GM of the Buccaneers if he could just play DraftKings? He doesn’t have to carry a kicker on his roster!

Would that change his horrible history of wasting big money on lousy free agents and for some stupid reason actually caring about where a kid went to college in his draft philosophy? Well, no it wouldn’t.

So the Bucs results would be pretty much the same. Still, the kicker and fantasy football seem to have an endangered relationship much like the NFL and kickoffs. As a Commissioner, Todd lessened the single game impact of kickers in his league last year and plans to do the same this year. Not as many points as standard scoring leagues for long field goals and penalties for any kick missed from 39 yards and in. Todd calls it “The Matt Prater Adjustment.” Matt Prater is a terrific kicker and one hell of a weapon for the Detroit Lions. However, do the Detroit Lions win championships because of him? No.

Should your fantasy football team win a championship simply because of him? Todd says no. Todd discusses kickers in this pre-draft podcast and invites your thoughts on how kickers should be scored, if at all, in your season long leagues at [email protected].
