Scrambling to grab a kicker for Week 11? Not to worry, here are some suggestions for who to pickup and who to avoid in your fantasy football league this week.

Kicker Starts

Jason Sanders, Miami Dolphins vs. Denver Broncos

Miami’s conservative offensive approach has been great for its kicker. Sanders has seven field goals and double digit fantasy points in his last two games. The Dolphins get a struggling Broncos offense this week, and a Denver team that’s given up double digit points to opposing kickers in each of its last four games.

Will Lutz, New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons

Why the Saints are rolling with Taysom Hill to start in place of Drew Brees instead of Jameis Winston is anyone’s guess. But Sean Payton’s questionable decision is a nice boost for Lutz. The Falcons have allowed seven field goals and seven extra points in their last three games. More importantly, Atlanta’s defense is going to let New Orleans move the ball, and that should give Lutz plenty to do this week.

Kicker Sits

Stephen Gostkowski, Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens

Gostkowski has made three field goals on eight attempts in his last five games. He’s probably on the waiver wire in your league for a reason, and that’s where he should stay. Plus, the Ravens haven’t allowed more than one field goal in a game since Week 2.

Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers vs. Indianapolis Colts

Crosby has had just one game since Week 3 where he’s kicked more than one field goal. He didn’t even have a single attempt in two of those games. The Colts haven’t let a kicker score double digits since Week 5, and that was the only time this season it’s happened. Even worse, the Colts defense isn’t likely to give Green Bay the chance to kick too many extra points either.
