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.
