– Adam Vinateri (IND)
– Steve Hauschka (SEA)

Fantasy football kicker talk

Thanks to lots and lots of fantasy football draft strategy online, on TV and on radio, there’s a lot of talk based on such things as draft position trends during the offseason. For instance, the new thinking is no never “binge on QBs,” but look to other offensive and defensive players as having real “positional value.” Still, it’s the kickers who either make or break a fantasy football team pick when it comes to overall ranking and $ value. New England’s top kicker Stephen Gostkowski is one good example of a player any fantasy football fan would want on his or her team because this guy not only kicks the ball, but can tackle and score on other plays as well. His record proves this to be true.

Picking kickers wisely

There are fantasy fans who view Yahoo or ESPN “fantasy point” spreads and predictions as just more grist for the mill. Fans commenting online now have this point of view this 2015 pre-season because “you have to know the kickers and actually have watched players” before assuring yourself any really good fantasy options. For example, Seattle’s famed kicker Steven Hauschka is still being eyed by most fantasy football fans in 2015 “even while his QB made a key error at the end of the Super Bowl.” Thus, even the skilled Hauschka could not kick his team out of this Super loss!

Meanwhile, there is a real push-back coming from longtime Tom Brady supporter and New England kicker Stephen Gostkowski to that still defend this top fantasy QB’s “mess around with the football during the Colts playoff game last season.” Gostkowski said in recent TV interview that placekickers are “still underrated” and that will change as field goals and extra points are viewed as make or break actions for winning.

Overall, there has never been a better time to really get into fantasy football team and player kicker picks because there is a lot of good data about draft rankings and other projections online.
