Super Bowl XLV Fantasy Kicker Rankings

Feb 2, 2011

We’re at the flip a coin segment of the Super Bowl XLV rankings. My initial thought was to take Shaun Suisham because I have the Steelers winning the Super Bowl.
.
Plus, he averaged two field goals and 2.7 extra points, which is good for 61 actual points, or 8.7 per game. He has just two field goals and seven PATs in the two playoff games, which averages out to 6.5 points per game.
.
Mason Crosby averaged 1.4 field goals and  2.9 extra points this year, which was good for 112 actual points, or 7.0 per game. He has two field goals and 12 PATs, which averages to 6.0 points per game.
.
While Suisham has averaged more points, both during the regular season and the postseason, Pittsburgh allowed two more field goals. Of course, they allowed six fewer PATs, giving them identical actual points scored by opposing kickers (96).
.
So now that I’ve talked myself in circles, who gets the top ranking? My first choice naturally. You have to stick with your gut. I’ll take Shaun Suisham to win the fantasy battle by a hair.
