1 Stephen Gostkowski NE 36 40 10 12 9 11 1 1 50 12 40 40
Round 15-16 (Tier 1) He led the NFL in XPs in 2007. Last year he kicked the most FGs, making 90 percent. Either way, he’ll be among the top again.
2 Rob Bironas TEN 29 33 6 6 15 19 1 1 51 8 40 40
Round 15-16 (Tier 1) Was first in FGs in 2007 and eighth last year. Solid defense and run-first offense lead to big days, kicking four FGs three times
3 Robbie Gould CHI 26 29 6 6 8 11 0 0 48 10 41 41
Round 15-16 (Tier 1) Is nearly automatic, missing just three FGs last season and owning an 88 percent accuracy for past three years.
4 Jason Elam ATL 29 31 11 11 10 10 1 2 50 9 42 42
Round 15-16 (Tier 1) He’s still a top 10 kicker after making at least 26 FGs for the 8th straight year. Atlanta can improve in Ryan’s second year, too.
5 John Kasay CAR 28 31 7 7 11 12 1 3 50 8 46 46
Round 15-16 (Tier 1) He was a top 5 kicker despite attempting only one FG from 50-plus yards. Set a career high FG accuracy rate in 18th season.
6 David Akers PHI 33 40 13 13 8 10 2 5 51 11 45 45
Round 15-16 (Tier 1) Despite missing seven attempts, he still made third-most FGs last year. To be fair, three misses came from 50-plus yards.
7 Nate Kaeding SD 27 32 13 13 3 8 1 1 57 9 46 46
Round 15-16 (Tier 2) He placed among top 10 kickers after making the most XPs. However, he missed five of eight attempts from 40-49 yards.
8 Ryan Longwell MIN 29 34 10 10 6 9 6 6 54 10 40 40
Round 15-16 (Tier 2) He remains accurate and kicks in a dome. He missed only five FG attempts and made all six kicks from 50-plus yards.
9 Neil Rackers ARI 25 28 9 9 6 6 1 2 54 8 44 44
Round 15-16 (Tier 2) Had only two chances from 50-plus yards after trying nine in 2004. Still, has kicked 91 XPs in past 2 years with better offense.
10 Mason Crosby GB 27 34 9 9 5 6 3 6 53 9 46 46
Round 15-16 (Tier 2) Will have plenty of FG and XP chances in Green Bay’s strong offense and is set to improve in third season.
11 Kris Brown HOU 29 33 9 10 8 10 2 3 53 11 37 37
Round 15-16 (Tier 2) Improved offense helped him make at least 2 field goals in 11 games last year. Is on the rise with potent offense.
12 Adam Vinatieri IND 20 25 3 3 4 7 2 2 52 4 43 43
Round 15-16 (Tier 3) Overrated in fantasy as he’s averaged only 23 FGs in first three years with Colts. Was only 4-for-9 from 40-49 in last 2 years.
13 Nick Folk DAL 20 22 1 1 10 11 2 2 52 7 42 42
Round 15-16 (Tier 3) Dallas drafted a rookie kicker, and field goals dropped significantly from 31 to 22, and XPs fell nine, downgrading his value.
14 Lawrence Tynes NYG 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 19 0 3 3
Round 15-16 (Tier 3) If healthy, he’ll have a chance to assume John Carney’s 2008 stats as a top 5 kicker who made second-most FGs last year.
15 Joe Nedney SF 29 33 9 9 8 11 2 3 53 8 34 34
Round 15-16 (Tier 3) Made career high FGs after missing just four. If offense improves, could see more FG and XP attempts to boost value.
16 Rian Lindell BUF 30 38 8 9 10 15 1 3 53 9 34 34
Round 15-16 (Tier 3) Arrival of T.O. increases fantasy standing with more likely XPs. But must improve 66.7 percent accuracy from 40-49 yards.
