Place kicker

Kai Forbath, Washington Redskins at Denver Broncos

Forbath has been a top-six fantasy kicker in the last two weeks since his return from injury. He has hit four of his five three-point attempts and all seven of the extra point kicks afforded to him.

It could be a high-scoring game in the Mile High City next week. Forbath gets a crack at a team allowing 2.50 field goal attempts and 2.75 point-after tries, good for 13.0 possible points per game.

David Akers, Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys

Detroit and Dallas match up pretty well, which could result in Akers lining up for a lot of distance attempts. He has averaged 2.00 field goals tries (1.75 makes) and 2.75 touchdown toppers (all good).

Dallas has permitted booters to connect on 10 of 12 field goal attempts (2.50 of 3.00) and 10 extra points (2.50) in the last four games.

Defensive team

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins

Despite a ton of injuries of late, the Pats could have enough in the tank to rack up a few takeaways from the Dolphins. Miami has given up 4.0 sacks, 1.67 interceptions and 0.67 fumbles per game.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants

Despite a pretty clean game by Eli Manning in Week 7, Philly could be a worthwhile waiver wire play. Manning's Giants have turned over the ball 2.75 times, on average, and they have given up 1.75 sacks per matchup.
