3. Greg Zuerlein

Whoever claims fantasy football kickers can’t make a difference need to take a look at what went down in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys after in which Greg Zuerlein connected on all seven field goal attempts to help the Los Angeles Rams earn a statement win on the road. There was a time last season when Zuerlein’s job seemed to be in jeopardy during training camp and the preseason, but luckily there’s no more reason for the Rams kicker to be concerned over job, especially after setting a franchise record against the Cowboys.

Obviously, the chances of Zuerlein matching last week’s numbers against the Seattle Seahawks are slim, but at least Los Angeles is putting him in a better position this year when it comes to gaining points on the board. With the Rams sitting at the bottom of the league in 2016 by only averaging 14 points per game, Zuerlein only attempted 22 field goals all of last year since the offense struggled to move the football down the field.

Hopefully, Los Angeles continues to pickup right where they left off against Dallas when it comes to Zuerlein finding numerous opportunities to put up points, although it would better to find the end zone more instead of settling for field goals. By already converting 14 field goals on the season, it’s crazy to think Zuerlein is already five field goals away from matching his 2016 total.
