you have forgotten jeff reed on this list. he has proven himself last year missing very few kicks and i think he will be one of the best kickers in the league this year

Ironically, kickers can make or break you most weeks yet picking the right one from year to year is a total crapshoot. Let me give you a small sample: (but I'm not one for precise details)

2000 Stover was a waiver wire pick-up and was # 1 in scoring that year
2002 Mare was picked in the top 5 but finished 10-15.
2002 Akers was not in the top 10
2002 Wilkens was a top pick but was a disappointment
2002 Ace Feeley was a surprise
bla, bla, bla we are talking about kickers...but they are very important...just hard to pick the right one from year to year. You kind of have to try and pick a kicker from a team who is good but not too good. In 2001, the ravens stalled a lot in the redzone -no Jamal - and Stover was big.
Steelers were the same way in 2001. I don't even remember the guy's name but he sucked in real football but got so many opp's that he scored a ton of points.

In order off the top of my head
Jay Feeley
Akers
Janikowski
Elam
Gramatica
Vinatieri
Reed
Wilkins
Hollis
Anderson
Vanderjagt
Josh Brown
Carney

They're part of a starting roster in Fantasy Football, and there are variables that affect their fantasy potential so why not discuss them? I remember Elam winning a game for me when the Broncos played against the Dolphins last year.
