If you’re looking for a kicker to start in Week 2 fantasy football, Chandler Catanzaro of the New York Jets is a viable option.

In case fantasy football owners out there in the world didn’t know, the overall offense, defense, well, pretty much the majority of the New York Jets are all a huge work in progress. The Jets are rebuilding and with that comes a lot of growing pains, frustration, and needing time to find an identity. When it comes to the offense of the Jets, it leaves much to the imagination since they can’t even convert third downs, let alone, score touchdowns. That’s why in Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders, kicker Chandler Catanzaro is worth starting if you’re looking for one.

In the grand scheme of things, the Jets won’t score touchdowns for a while, let alone this week against the tough defense of the Raiders. Luckily for fantasy football owners, this bodes well for Catanzaro.

Last week, he hit a pair of field goals, which brought in respectable points depending on how the setup for your league is. This week, it’s hard to believe the Jets could actually score a touchdown or two against the Raiders but either way, expect to see a lot of action coming to Catanzaro this week.

Hopefully, the Jets learned from their mistakes in Week 1 when they lost to the Buffalo Bills and failed to do what made sense.

They didn’t commit to the run and became too one-dimensional. If they’re smart, they will do a better job at establishing the ground game and even if they don’t score touchdowns, can at least get into position to add points on the scoreboard via field goals.

That’s where Catanzaro comes in and well, should be able to bring in the same if not, even more, fantasy points in Week 2. Trust me when I say that the Jets aren’t going to win this game against the Raiders but will probably score many field goals in their efforts.

Overall, if your main kicker is facing a tough matchup or you’re feeling risky in Week 2, Catanzaro is worth starting. If it’s anything the Jets have been historically known for, it’s always having a strong kicking game when it comes to field goals.
