With unimpressive defenses on both sides of the ball in this Thursday night Florida showdown, there may be lots of scoring opportunity available. Are either of these kickers worth picking up for your team this week. We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: K Brandon Wright, K Jason Sanders

Josh Lambo has been put on I.R., giving Wright a chance to start. Wright was on the practice squad and could end up having a big game, but he could also miss all his kicks and be replaced by a donkey at halftime. It’s probably best to let him prove himself first.

Jason Sanders was limited by the Dolphins limited scoring opportunities against New England as he was 1/1 on field goals and 1/1 on extra points. He was afforded more opportunity in Week 2 as he was 2/2 on field goals and 2/2 on extra points for 11.0 points in ESPN standard leagues. Though Sanders is perfect so far this season, his upside will be limited by the low scoring offense that he plays for. He can also be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
