Although this goes against everything I stand for, i am telling all of you out there that a kicker is my fantasy football man crush of the week. I am not going to drag this one out for a while, instead I am going to get straight to the point on why he’s my man crush.
To this point in the season, the Miami offense has had no real bright spots. Their run game, as well as their pass game have plain Jane. Although they hold the #13 overall offense in the NFL, as far as fantasy goes, they are not even close. In fact, out of all of the players on the Dolphins, the leading fantasy point scorers on the team go in this order.
1. Chad Henne-82 points
2. Dan Carpenter 75 points
3. Brandon Marshall 62 points
Clear enough? Their kicker is their second highest scorer as far as fantasy goes and with good reason. To this point in the season, Carpenter has 20 FGs, with 10 of them coming in the last two weeks. With this week’s match-up pitting them against the Ravens, I do not expect their offense to do much, leaving Carpenter with all the FG opportunities. Since he is only owned in 56% of leagues, he is definitely out there and most likely available in your league. Pick him up and start him.
