Cairo Santos – Kicker

Projection: 2/2 FG (100%); 4/4 XP (100%)

A good kicker is a valuable weapon in Fantasy Football, and the Kansas City Chiefs have a good kicker.  Cairo Santos has quietly become one of the more effective kickers in the NFL.  He provides a good blend of range and accuracy that makes him a reliable option for the Chiefs to utilize.

The production for Santos this week, as with every kicker, will be determined by the effectiveness of the offense.  From a Fantasy Football point of view, that may actually work against Santos as a top play.  I think the Chiefs find the endzone quite a bit instead of netting a lot of field goals.  However, Santos may get an opportunity for a few long attempts that could add some more points.

If you’re playing in a league, Cairo Santos is a good option to have week in and week out.  He is in no danger of losing his job, and should get quite a few opportunities.  For DFS players, the value of Santos should be pretty decent simply because kickers don’t cost much.  Go ahead and keep him ready to go each week.
