5 Atlanta Falcons you should draft on your fantasy team this season
By Nick Halden
5. Younghoe Koo
Finding a kicker is certainly a low priority, however, Younghoe Koo is a valuable addition in the final rounds of a draft. Koo is coming off of a season that saw the Atlanta kicker score 111-points hitting all of his PAT attempts and hitting 27/29 of his field goals. Koo is without question one of the most reliable kickers in the game and will be drafted in the majority of leagues this season.
The one downside to drafting Koo is obvious, despite the fact he is automatic how many chances will he get? With Atlanta expected to often be trailing and playing from behind the focus will be on touchdowns and leading to a lot of meaningless receiving yards but how many kick attempts for Koo?
Despite that concern, Younghoe should still be rostered based on his reliability and the fact he found a way to finish in the middle of the pack in scoring last season in an inferior Atlanta offense. Younghoe Koo understandably won’t be high on any team’s pre-draft rankings but he will be a valuable contributor this season and beyond for a team who has managed to get one position right.
