For some reason FanDuel still includes the kicker spot while many other daily fantasy sites have dropped it. I will make it simple for you, play a kicker from an offense you like with a salary that works with the rest of your team.

St. Louis Rams ($5100) – The Rams were the top defense for daily last weekend and continue to be tough on opponents. Their price tag is up there with some of the other elite defenses, but I think its worth paying the price tag this week. The 49ers will visit them with their less than imposing offense both through the air and on the ground. It also looks like Carlos Hyde will sit this one out making this offense even weaker. Colin Kaepernick is prone to throw bad interceptions and the Rams pass rush will give him fits all day long. Pay the price this weekend for a higher end defense and take the safer bet.
