Early Bird 2010 Fantasy Football Rankings: PK

By R.J. White

NEW ORLEANS - JANUARY 24: Kicker Garrett Hartley #5 and holder Mark Brunell #11 of the New Orleans Saints celebrate after Hartley kicked a 40-yard game-winning field goal in overtime against the Minnesota Vikings during the NFC Championship Game at the Louisiana Superdome on January 24, 2010 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

When we posted our quarterback, running back, receiver, and tight end rankings, we tried to provide readers with a little insight into how the tiers were broken down, why certain players may have appeared where they did, and so on. You won’t find any of that here because, well, these are kickers. Let’s face it, just reading this opening paragraph now makes you overqualified to draft a kicker. Here’s the only piece of advice you need — wait till the last round, then snatch up the top guy left on your list. If waiting means you get Neil Rackers instead of David Akers, so be it.

Thanks again to bungle613, joejlitz, Dan Lambskin, dream_017, flux, and bazzy_51 for submitting the rankings that were averaged with my own to give you these rankings.

Is it the last round of your draft? If so, take a kicker. If not, wait till the next round and re-read this section.
