Special Teams Monday (Week 14)

Each week @mr_wendy will be taking a look back at the week that was in the NFL with a special focus on special teams and relevancy of special teams players in fantasy football. Check back each week.

I hope you were able to win and get in the playoffs or that you won your playoff game. What an exciting time of the year for us fantasy players. It just adds so much fun when you wind down a week and need a Punter or Kicker to help you duel a skill player to get a much needed win. League chat boxes blow up after a near missed FG or everyone laughing and poking fun at a punt that lands in the end zone. Or, if your playing against a DB and your stomach turns after he gets a big punt return and you realize your game is now close! Jump on this fun people.

Top return guys from Week 13:

  1. Devin Hester (Atlanta Falcons) – Big return over 40 yards with a 34 yard per return average
  2. Dwayne Harris (Dallas Cowboys) – Big play kick return over 40 yards with a 30 yard return average
  3. Josh Cribbs (Indianapolis Colts)
  4. Ted Ginn, Jr. (Arizona Cardinals)
  5. Dexter McCluster (Tennessee Titans)
  6. Marcus Thigpen (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Top Punters from Week 13:

We had a big week from four punters last week. These Punters all landed 3 punts inside the 20 to help our fantasy teams light it up. Bryan Anger of the Jacksonville Jaguars is a good Punter to own because of the amount of punts he has every week. He punted 7 times and  hit 2 of those  inside the 20.

  1. Pat O’Donnell (Chicago Bears)
  2. Johnny Hekker (St. Louis Rams)
  3. Colton Schmidt (Buffalo Bills)
  4. Tress Way (Washington Redskins)

Top Kickers from Week 13:

It was a good week for the kicking game. They were active for their NFL teams and for us fantasy owners.

  1. Matt Bryant (Atlanta Falcons) – 5 FGs
  2. Connor Barth (Denver Broncos) – 5 FGs
  3. Steven Hauschka (Seattle Seahawks) – 4 FGs
  4. Justin Tucker (Baltimore Ravens) – 4 FGs
  5. Dan Carpenter (Buffalo Bills) – 4 FGs
  6. Cody Parkey (Philadelphia Eagles) – 4 FGs
