Think about Kickers and Weather Issues


It is that time again when weather becomes a factor in kicker outcomes. Different locations have different weather patterns and effects. In order to prevent snow, rain, wind and cold from affecting these fantasy players-think about adding a kicker who kicks in a Dome most of the time from here on out.

Dome Kickers (Dome games in Weeks 12-16 (5 games)
Adam Vinatieri-IND (4 dome games out of 5 games)
Dan Bailey-DAL (2 games)
Chandler Catanzaro-AZ (4 games)
Matt Prater-DET (3 games)
Shayne Graham-NO (3 games)
Matt Bryant-ATL (4 games)
Greg Zuerlien-STL (3 games in dome plus one in SD)
Randy Bullock-HOU (4 games out of 5)
