Here’s a look at my 2011 fantasy football kicker rankings.
1.  Nate Kaeding, San Diego Chargers:  I’m expecting a much better showing out of Kaeding this year.
2. Sebastian Janikowski, Oakland Raiders: Seabass tied for the league in FGs made last year and finished second in points.
3.  Stephen Gostkowski, New England Patriots: So far so good, but I can’t trust him as the #1 again.
4.  David Akers, San Francisco 49ers:  The move to the Bay Area scares me a little. The Niners offense is simply not as explosive.
5.  Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers:  Super Bowl Champs could have an even better offense in 2011.
6.  Rob Bironas, Tennessee Titans:  I can see them moving the chains under Hasselbeck, but coming up short. Enter Rob Bironas.
7.  Neil Rackers, Houston Texans:  Somehow I don’t think the Texans will be as effective in the red zone.
8.  Nick Folk, New York Jets:  One of three kickers with 30+ PATs and FGs last year.
9.  Alex Henery, Philadelphia Eagles:  He may not be Akers, but he’s in a great spot.
10.  Josh Brown, St. Louis Rams:  Tied Seabass for most FGs last year.
11.  Dan Carpenter, Miami Dolphins:  Scoring TDs could be an issue in Miami.
12.  Lawrence Tynes, New York Giants:  Not a flashy pick, but a solid one.
13.  Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis Colts:  Kicking for the Colts (and indoors) has it’s perks.
14.  Matt Bryant, Atlanta Falcons:  The Dirty Birds should be even better this year.
15. David Buehler, Dallas Cowboys:  Hartley’s injury opens the door for Buehler.
