Nick Folk is the kicker start of the week thanks to a great matchup against the consistently underwhelming Jets.

Get Week 5 fantasy lineup advice and NFL DFS tips before finalizing your picks.It's important to remember that we have an early-morning Sunday kickoff this week, as the Jets and Falcons are set to do battle in London. Don't get caught off guard and leave any key Falcons and Jets on your bench (or in your lineup) by accident.

Byes: Bills, Chargers, Cowboys, Jaguars, Steelers, Vikings

Week 7 Start ‘Em: Kickers

Start of the Week

Nick Folk vs. Jets (1 p.m. ET, CBS): Listed as a sit ‘em last week, Folk recorded three fantasy points against the Cowboys. However, I like him to rebound in the stat sheets, as a matchup against the Jets is favorable. Their defense has given up the second-most points a game to kickers, and Folk beat them for 13 points in Week 2.

TEAM DEFENSES

Start ‘Em

Matt Gay vs. Lions (4:05 p.m. ET, Fox): Gay has been consistently productive for his fantasy managers, scoring no fewer than eight points in any game this season. I like him to continue that streak in what is a great matchup against the Lions. No team in the league has allowed more fantasy points to kickers, so Gay should produce well.

Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Fantasy Football Week 6: Kickers

  Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Fantasy Football Week 6: Kickers If you have to play the matchup, there are a few emerging options available to you in Week 6. Start ‘Em, Sit 'Em is the ultimate look at the best and worst matchups based on a PPR scoring system in fantasy football. This column will not cover the elite players in the NFL like Patrick Mahomes, Christian McCaffrey, Davante Adams or Travis Kelce. Instead, I'll look at the players you have the most questions about to help you set the most effective starting lineup possible.

Mason Crosby vs. Football Team (1 p.m. ET, Fox): Crosby’s numbers haven’t been all that consistent, as he’s scored six or fewer points in three of his six games. I like him to be on the higher end of that total this week, as the Football Team has allowed 12 field-goal conversions and the fourth-most fantasy points a game to enemy kickers.

Week 7 Sit ‘Em: Kickers

Sit of the Week

Jason Sanders vs. Falcons (1 p.m. ET, Fox): Sanders posted a respectable eight points last week, but it was just the second time he’s scored more than five points in a game this season. I’d keep him on the sidelines against the Falcons, who have given up five-of-six field-goal conversions and the eighth-fewest points per game to kickers.

Sit ‘Em

Evan McPherson at Ravens (1 p.m. ET, CBS): McPherson, listed as a start ‘em last week, scored 10 fantasy points in a win over the Lions. I wouldn’t chase those points though, as the Bengals head to Baltimore. The Ravens defense has allowed five field-goal conversions and is tied for the third-fewest points per game allowed to kickers.

View the original article to see embedded media.

Graham Gano vs. Panthers (1 p.m. ET, Fox): Gano has failed to score more than seven points in all but two games this season, and a matchup against his former team, the Panthers, isn’t a favorable one. Opposing kickers have failed to score more than six points in four of five games against Carolina, so Gano should be on the sidelines.

Fantasy Football Auction Tips 2021: Best strategy advice for getting the most value in your draft .
Auction drafts truly put you in control of your fantasy football destiny. Justin Fensterman from Fantasy Alarm provides tips and strategy advice for navigating your 2021 auction, from nominations to bidding to budgeting.For those unfamiliar, in auction drafts, each team gets a budget of hypothetical money to bid on players. The standard is a $200 budget per team. The snake draft format is replaced with a nomination order that goes from top to bottom each round. The nominator gets 20-30 seconds to select a player, and once the bidding begins, a running clock starts which determines how long the player is up for nomination.
