In public sale leagues, paying greater than a greenback to your kicker is in some ways worse, even you probably have greater than a greenback left and no different roster spots to fill. How many gamers did you miss out on since you refused to bid only one greenback extra, solely to search out your self paying $3 for Justin Tucker on the finish of the night time? Every greenback issues in public sale leagues, which is why you will not discover any kickers valued at greater than $1 in FantasyProfessionals’ 2021 knowledgeable projections.

All the remainder are valued at $0, however that does not imply you need to undoubtedly attempt to get, say, Ryan Succop over Joey Slye or Robbie Gould over Daniel Carlson. These forms of kickers are roughly the identical, so do not be afraid to go “off the board” in your public sale for a kicker. Again, so long as you are not paying greater than $1, you’ll be able to just about goal whoever you need and be high-quality. (See our snake draft kicker rankings for an entire breakdown of the place.)
If you’ll be able to’t belief your self to be disciplined and wish to make sure you bid not more than $1 for a kicker, then nominate one early and get it out of the best way.
