2017 Fantasy Football Rankings: Kicker

Sporting News

The fantasy football rankings we’ve all been waiting for is upon us -- kickers. You know, those guys that nobody cares about until they single-handedly (or leggedly?) score 15 points and swing an entire week. But sometimes, they’re just as important as the other players on your team, so it’s important to do some research, pick a sleeper or two, and be prepared just in case.

The draft strategy for kickers follows the same story each year: Wait until the last couple rounds, make sure he is on a high-scoring offense and is somewhat reliable. When in doubt, go with a guy in a dome, and once the season starts, just stream based on weather and matchups.

Like defense/special teams, don’t fall for following the leader after someone drafts a kicker in the 10th round. When those last two rounds arrive, then click on the kicker bar. And when that time arrives, you can refer to this list to make sure you’re prepared. We’ve done way more research than any person should spend ranking kickers to make life easier for you.
