Face it, the Thursday Night games have been pretty boring this year, with few reasons to watch other than fantasy and gambling implications. Every week I'm going to profile one sparsely-owned player from Thursday's game, that you can (notice I'm not saying should) pick up and start. Ya know, get your Thursday night fantasy fix if you don't have a stud player going.

So without further adieu, this week's player is...

Greg Zuerlein, K, St. Louis Rams

You can't go wrong with a dude who's been given nicknames by his teammates like: "Greg the Leg," "Legatron," and "The Young G.Z."

Awesome handles aside, this rookie right-footed rookie phenom has practically been the Rams entire offense through 4 games, going 12-12 on field goals, including last week's 60 and 58 yard blasts. Look for that to continue tonight as the Rams go up against a strong Cardinals defense.

This steel-footed rook looks like a top-10 fantasy kicker the rest of the way. So grab him and start him, and sit back and crush some brews as this steel-footer puts up 10+ fantasy points tonight.
