2012 Kicker Rankings
1UP Fantasy Player Rankings: Kicker
David Akers (SF) – The inability of the offense to convert, the defense’s incredible field position game, and Akers’ solidity all combined to turn 2011 into a perfect storm for fantasy kicking points. All signs point to him being the best kicker in the league again.
Stephen Gostkowski (NE) – Akers was in a tier by himself, but Gostkowski was nothing to scoff at. Despite only converting 29 FG’s, he was able to bolster his stats through a remarkable 59 PATs behind the juggernaut Patriots offense.
Sebastian Janikowski (Oak) - One of the few kickers with gamebreaking potential due to his incredible leg. With a more stable offense featuring an acclimated Carson Palmer, expect his 31 FG, 39 PAT, 2011 campaign to improve, and keep in mind in standard scoring formats, a 50+ yard fieldgoal is worth only one point less than a touchdown. Last year he kicked 10 while fighting hamstring problems.
