Fantasy Football Week 6 Kicker Projections: The Two 'Skis At The Top

Week 6 means more bye teams and more decisions on who to start. We look at fantasy player projections to help.

Week 6 Bye Teams: Denver, Tennessee, Kansas City, Arizona, San Diego, Seattle

With bye weeks in play, if you're holding a kicker on one of the six teams above, you'll need a replacement for Week 6. Fortunately, there are always kickers available on the waiver wire, but who do you pick?

Our friends at numberFire.com gave us the following list of their Top 25 kicker projections for Week 6 of fantasy football. They base their numbers on historical statistical data fed into magical computer algorithms that produce the projections.

The two 'Skis, Sebastian Janikowski and Stephen Gostkowski, are the top dogs for kickers in Week 6. But some guys a little lower on the list might be who is available for one-week replacement duty. Look into Billy Cundiff, Josh Brown or Dan Bailey among others.
