Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings Week 15: Who to start, best sleepers at kicker

It’s officially win-or-go-home time in fantasy football leagues, and you can’t afford any missteps when making your start ’em, sit ’em decisions. Our Week 15 fantasy kicker rankings are here to help that process at fantasy’s most annoying position. 

Anyone who’s played fantasy before knows that playoff matchups often come down to waiver-wire pickups and unexpected performances. If your team is dealing with the injury bug or lacking some high-end stars, you can try to make up the difference at D/ST and kicker, where you can easily find top weekly performers just sitting on the waiver wire.

With that in mind, let’s get to it and break down our Week 15 kicker rankings.

QBs | RBs | WRs | TEs | D/STs

Who are the best fantasy kickers in Week 15?

Jake Elliott (@ Seahawks in Week 15), Cameron Dicker (@ Raiders), Harrison Butker (@ Patriots), Matt Gay (vs. Steelers), and Blake Grupe (vs. Giants) make up our top five. Dicker, Gay, and Grupe are all steady kickers playing indoors, while Elliott and Butker both have top-10 matchups. 

QBs | RBs | WRs | TEs | D/STs

Brandon Aubrey (@ Bills), Justin Tucker (@ Jaguars), Jason Sanders (vs. Jets), Evan McPherson (vs. Vikings), and Dustin Hopkins (vs. Bears) round out our top 10. Weather could be an issue for most of these guys (especially Aubrey and Hopkins), but as long as forecasts are clear, these kickers should be solid sources of points.

Who are the best fantasy kicker sleepers in Week 15?

Grupe (vs. Giants) is still owned in fewer than 50 percent of fantasy leagues, so he qualifies as a top sleeper this week, but there are plenty more to consider both in terms of matchup and “safety.” 

Chris Boswell (@ Colts) and Mason Crosby (vs. Commanders) face the teams that entered last week allowing the most fantasy points per game to kickers, and they’re both playing in stadiums with a roof. It’s tough to beat those variables, so both are worth heavy consideration (assuming Crosby starts as expected over Lucas Havrisik).

Ka’imi Fairbairn (@ Titans), Eddy Pineiro (vs. Falcons), Joey Slye (@ Rams), and Riley Patterson (vs. Broncos) all have top-10 matchups, and Slye and Patterson are also indoors.

Jake Moody (@ Cardinals), Matt Prater (vs. 49ers), Wil Lutz (@ Lions), Daniel Carlson (vs. Chargers), and Randy Bullock (@ Saints) are also all indoors, so if you want to avoid checking weather forecasts all week, you can opt for one in deeper leagues.
