Posted by Mike Horn on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 12:08

Kickers averaged 7.6 FP in Week 15.  Of minor note, through Week 8, kickers were averaging 8.2 FP.  Since then, it has been 7.6 FP.  The system did very well again, hitting its stride in the playoff weeks.  "Starts" tied for the top category in average FP with 8.6 and did not have a single kicker under 7 FP.
