Kansas City Chiefs Top Fantasy Football Scorers: #5
Cairo Santos – K
Kickers are an underrated part of any team, and that ‘s true in Fantasy Football as well. Kicker’s routinely score a ton of points every year, but are among the last players selected. That goes for Kansas City Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos as well. Already you can see that Santos outscored the top tight end in Fantasy Football this year.
Here is how Cairo Santos’s performance stacked up in 2016:
- 135 points (8.4 per week)
- T-8th out of all Ks
- Owned by 47.8% of teams
- Started by 36.7% of teams
The 8th best kicker in the NFL finished ahead of the top tight end, yet universally a kicker will be selected before a tight end in every draft. On top of that, many Fantasy Football players will simply just take the kicker for their favorite team! Of course, if everyone else is going to be foolish about taking a kicker, you might as well play along right?
2017 Draft Position: Last Round
Yes, kickers should be taken before this point…but some of the best will still be available this late. So why would you mess with that? I routinely take a kicker in the last round of my fantasy drafts and have yet to have a problem. On top of that, less than half the owners out there had Santos at all! C’mon man, this is too easy.
