2016 NFL Player Ranking

Who to Start at Kicker in your Week 1 Fantasy Line-up

Do you have an all time favorite kicker? I grew up watching and cheering on the Detroit Lions and over the years I have to think and really only remember the great ones. Eddie Murray, Jason Hanson (played forever), and not Matt Prater. These guys were clutch, automatic. If the offense got us within the 45 yard line you could count on putting up 3 points. In fact there was a couple of years that seemed like that’s the only points they could put up. In fact I believe Jason Hanson helped me win a championship one year because the offense was so terrible.

Most leagues have completely eliminated the Kicker position and changed it over to a flex position to increase the odds of putting up high game scores and to add another level or dimension to the strategy of your game. For those leagues that do use the kicker depending upon your scoring format you should never spend an outrageous amount of money. If for some reason your leagues has made adjustments to the scoring system that makes having a top Kicker a must. Well you now have the information necessary to draft one early enough to help impact your week to week scores.
