  • Jason Sanders Hits Half-Dozen Kicks In Big Week 12

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders was successful against the Houston Texans on Sunday, going 3-for-3 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points. His made field goals came from 23, 35, and 45 yards out. The 27-year-old has been a bit inconsistent due to some poor accuracy as of late, but as Sunday's performance showed, Sanders certainly has top-12 upside any given week. If you're looking for some help at the kicker position and Sanders is available, he's worth rostering given his role in the strong Miami offense.

  • Jason Sanders Hard To Trust Despite Favorable Matchup

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders isn't an extremely appealing fantasy option in Week 12 against the Houston Texans. Despite the favorable matchup and potential for Miami to score plenty of points, Sanders' production as of late has been relatively underwhelming. The 27-year-old missed two extra points in Week 10 and whiffed on a field goal the week prior. Since Sanders' success in the kicking game is far from a guarantee, it might be wise to look for someone else to plug into your lineups.

  • Jason Sanders Effective Despite Two Misses

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders went 3-for-5 on extra points and 2-for-2 on field goals during Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns. He connected from 33 and 39 yards out. Sanders had the potential to finish with solid fantasy numbers, but his two missed extra points represented a brutal four-point swing in most leagues. He can be dropped heading into Miami's Week 11 bye.

  • Jason Sanders Offers Streaming Appeal In Week 10

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders finds himself ranked as a fringe top-12 option heading into Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns. For starters, there is a clear correlation between offensive success and kickers' fantasy points, so the Dolphins' dominance with the ball in their hands should lead to key kicking opportunities for Sanders. Furthermore, the weather is expected to be quite calm when this game kicks off in Miami on Sunday. On the topic of location, Sanders has fared better inside the confines of Hard Rock Stadium than on the road in 2022. At home, he has converted six of seven field goals, but away from home, he is 5-for-8. His only missed extra point this season also came on the road. All in all, if bye weeks have left you scrambling for a kicker, Sanders represents a strong option this Sunday.

  • Jason Sanders Misses Short Field Goal

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders missed his lone field goal attempt from 29 yards out during Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears. On a positive note, he went 5-for-5 on extra points. Despite Miami's strong offense, the 26-year-old falls just outside the top-12 fantasy kickers going forward.

  • Jason Sanders Worth Streaming In Week 9

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders is worth streaming in Week 9. As the Dolphins' offense continues to hum along, its kicker should benefit by cleaning up stalled drives with field goals or adding extra points to touchdowns. With that said, there is still room for Sanders to struggle this week. He's going up against a Chicago Bears defense that has allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to kickers in 2022. They are also one of three teams that have not allowed a made field goal from beyond 50 yards. Meanwhile, Sanders himself has not converted from more than 50 yards this season. If you're looking for someone who will hit a couple of deep kicks, the 26-year-old is not your guy, but he still offers plenty of appeal given the sudden burst of life demonstrated by the Dolphins' offense.

  • Jason Sanders Successful In Win Over Lions

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders went 4-for-4 on extra points during Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions. He also converted his lone field-goal attempt, connecting from 45 yards out. Although Sanders struggled earlier this season, he finds himself back on the fantasy radar after kicking quite reliably and accurately. His role in the Dolphins' high-scoring offense makes him a decent streaming option against the Chicago Bears in Week 9.

  • Jason Sanders Teetering On Fantasy Relevance

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders is a borderline streaming option against the Detroit Lions in Week 8. The 26-year-old had an underwhelming start to his season, but he bounced back with one extra point and three field goals last week, including a pair from beyond 40 yards out. He ranks as the K19 in fantasy football this season and wouldn't normally generate streaming interest. However, Miami's favorable matchup against a weak Detroit defense gives Sanders the potential for a strong game, as long as he remains accurate.

  • Jason Sanders Makes Key Kicks In Week 7 Win

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sander connected on all three of his field goal attempts against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. His kicks were successful from 24, 42, and 47 yards out. He also made his lone extra point attempt. Sanders hasn't had the greatest season, but his production in Week 7 put him back on the fantasy radar, at the very least. If you're in need of kicking help next week, Sanders is a solid streaming option in what could be a high-scoring game versus the Detroit Lions.

  • Jason Sanders Belongs On Waivers In Week 7

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders should continue to be avoided in fantasy football. Even though the Dolphins' offense is trending up, the return of Tua Tagovailoa (head) implies the possibility of touchdowns and fewer field goals. Additionally, and certainly more importantly, Sanders missed three field goals and one extra point over the course of his last three games. Look elsewhere for your fantasy kicker this week.

  • Jason Sanders Misses Kick In Loss To Vikings

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders went 1-for-2 on field goals while converting his lone extra point attempt against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. The 27-year-old has now missed three field goals in 2022. Even though Tua Tagovailoa's return next week should improve the state of the offense, Sanders can be left on waivers in most fantasy football leagues.

  • Jason Sanders Not A Solid Streamer In Week 6

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders has lost any fantasy football appeal that he possessed now that the team has turned to third-string quarterback Skylar Thompson. With Miami's offense struggling due to injuries, the team has produced fewer and fewer scoring drives. As a result, there have been fewer opportunities for Sanders to get involved. Furthermore, he has made just six of eight field goals and also missed an extra-point attempt. You should feel comfortable leaving Sanders on waivers ahead of Sunday's game versus the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Jason Sanders Misses Kick In Loss To Jets

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders made both of his extra-point attempts against the New York Jets in Week 5. He went 1-for-2 on field goals, converting from 46 yards out while missing from 54 yards. Miami faltered in the loss as third-string quarterback Skylar Thompson relieved Teddy Bridgewater (head). With the Dolphins' offense trending down, Sanders is not worth rostering in fantasy football.

  • Jason Sanders Lacks Fantasy Appeal In Week 5

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders falls outside of the top-12 range heading into his Week 5 clash against the New York Jets. Although this matchup is certainly favorable, the Miami offense could struggle without Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) at quarterback. Additionally, if either Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) or Jaylen Waddle (groin) is inactive, the Dolphins' productivity would take yet another step back. Even when the offense was firing on all cylinders, Sanders only managed to rank as the overall K20. Fantasy managers can find better options than Sanders on the waiver wire this week.

  • Jason Sanders Falters In Week 4

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders had a shaky performance on Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, missing his lone extra-point attempt. Additionally, one of his four field goal kicks was blocked. All in all, he went 3-for-5 in the kicking department. Although his success rate wasn't ideal, it was refreshing to see Sanders attempt some field goals after he had been limited to just extra points in Weeks 2 and 3. As long as the Miami offense keeps chugging, Sanders is a fringe top-12 kicker in fantasy football.

  • Jason Sanders - Week 4 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders finds himself in a position to succeed during Thursday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals. Not only has Sanders made all 13 of his kicks this season, but the Bengals have allowed an NFL-most 43 fantasy points to kickers. Additionally, Cincinnati has surrendered three field goals from 40 to 49 yards out (third-most in the NFL) and five from greater than 50 yards (most in the NFL). To cap it all off, Tua Tagovailoa (ankle, back), Jaylen Waddle (groin), and Cedrick Wilson Jr. (ribs, toe) could all be limited, creating the possibility that more drives will stall outside the end zone, thus giving Sanders the opportunity to kick extra field goals. He should be started in most leagues this week, assuming the weather forecast for Thursday night remains relatively calm.

  • Jason Sanders Makes All Three Extra Points

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders went 3-for-3 on extra points during the team's Week 3 win over the Buffalo Bills. He has yet to miss a kick through three games this year, though it's worth mentioning that 11 of his 13 attempts have been extra points. As long as the Dolphins' offense continues to thrive, Sanders should be rostered in fantasy football.

  • Jason Sanders - Week 3 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders is an appealing option in fantasy football ahead of Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills. With kicker success dependent on a team's total points, Sanders could thrive in a high-scoring contest. The Dolphins have shown significant success offensively and will need to score points against the Bills. Sanders finds himself among the top-eight kickers this week.

  • Jason Sanders Makes All Six Extra Points

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders connected on all six of his extra point attempts during Sunday's comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens. He did not attempt a field goal in the Week 2 contest. Sanders has now made all 10 of his kicks this season, demonstrating impressive efficiency through the first two games. A kicker's success is largely dependent on his offense's success, so Sanders should be viewed as a top-12 option going forward.

  • Jason Sanders - Week 2 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders remains an intriguing option for your fantasy lineups ahead of his matchup with the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2. Sanders struggled with accuracy last season but was flawless in Week 1, connecting on all four of his kicks, including two from more than 40 yards out. Given the strong state of the Dolphins' offense, Sanders should be rostered in most leagues. As long as he continues to be accurate and the Miami offense keeps moving down the field, Sanders will have fantasy appeal every week.

  • Jason Sanders Achieves Perfection In Week 1

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders went 2-for-2 on extra points and 2-for-2 on field goals during the team's Week 1 victory over the New England Patriots. His two field goals came from 43 and 49 yards out. As long as he can continue to be accurate, the Dolphins have a strong enough offense to support weekly production from Sanders. He is worth streaming and rostering going forward.

  • Jason Sanders - Week 1 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders has plenty of fantasy appeal heading into Week 1 against the New England Patriots. A kicker's success is rooted in his talent, the dominance of his team's offense, and the weather conditions. While the Dolphins don't play in a dome, the weather in South Beach will be calm on Sunday and Miami has the potential to put up plenty of points with Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, and others in tow. After finishing as the K1 in 2020, he dropped to K22 last year. However, he is trending up once again now that the Miami offense is drastically improved. As such, Sanders is a decent option for your lineup this week.
