2012 Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings – Week 1

Sep 5, 2012


.
The smell of football is in the air. Here are my 2012 Week 1 fantasy football kicker rankings.
.
1.  David Akers, San Francisco 49ers
League’s top kicker last year with 44 field goals with 34 extra points. Plays Green Bay.
.
2.  Stephen Gostkowski, New England Patriots
Pats offense should be even better. Gostkowski kicked 28 FGs last year with 59 PATs. Plays Tennessee.
.
3.  Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers
Kicked 28 FGs last year with a ridiculous 68 PATs. Against SF he should have multiple FGs.
.
4.  Sebastian Janikwoski, Oakland Raiders
Seabass kicked 31 FGs with 36 PATs last year. Plus, he continually drills long FGs. Plays San Diego.
.
5.  Alex Henery, Philadelphia Eagles
Henery finished with 24 FGs and 46 PATs. I expect more this year, starting with Cleveland.
.
6.  Garrett Hartley, New Orleans Saints
Saints’ offense should remain potent. He should be busy against Washington.
.
7.  Jason Hanson, Detroit Lions
I’m expecting at least a FG and multiple PATs against the Rams.
.
8.  Dan Bailey, Dallas Cowboys
Kicked 32 FGs and 39 PATs. Opens things up against the Giants.
.
9.  Matt Bryant, Atlanta Falcons
Had 27 FGs and 45 PATs. Starts off against the Chiefs.
.
10.  Mike Nugent, Cincinnati Bengals
Kicked 33 FGs and 33 PATs last year. I could see multiple FGs against the Ravens.
.
11.  Robbie Gould, Chicago Bears
Had 28 FGs and 37 PATs. Solid option against the Colts.
.
12.  Shayne Graham, Houston Texans
High-powered offense. Should be busy against Miami.
.
13.  Nate Kaeding, San Diego Chargers
He’s back and should get off to a solid start against the Raiders. Has something to prove after missing all of last year.
.
14.  Matt Prater, Denver Broncos
Should see more opportunities this year with Peyton Manning leading the charge. Opens with Pittsburgh.
.
15.  Steven Hauschka, Seattle Seahawks
Had 25 FGs and 34 PATs last year. Decent option against Arizona.
