Vanderjagt is a bit too low...he is definitely a top 3 or 4 kicker this season. Reed and Wilkins are also a bit low. Nugent and Graham are a bit high.

But for kickers it doesn't really matter. After the top tier made up of something like Vinatieri, Akers, Elam, and Vanderjagt, it's all a wash.

Vandy actually finished 6th last season in standard Yahoo scoring, I wouldn't be surprised if he repeats that. 2 things went against him though, that injury and an offense that puts it into the endzone rather than having FG opportunities. I think the running game gets better this year and they remain about where they are in punching in TDs.

Really IMO after Akers it's all pretty much a wash.

I know they're just kickers, but everybody still has to draft one. The truth be told, the difference in my projections for the first and 15th kickers is only 13 pts...............

Who gives a hoot about Kickers. I grabbed Elam in the 15th and final round of my 10 team draft. Steal of the draft.

My strategy -- draft the 10th rated guy after all other 9 teams have taken theirs. Still not sure who that 10th guy will be for me though...

i was the second to last team to grab a kicker in my 12 team league and I got Jeff Wilkins. I'm satisfied with that. While I've had Vinatieri on past teams (and i'd rather have him this year too), but I do like to have a kicker who kicks indoors.


Remember, even Adam V. isn't a lock. He had great years in '02 and '04, but bad years in '01 and '03. Of course, '01 is still considered a great year for him b/c of his clutch postseason kicks, but in terms of fantasy points, he was below average in the regular season.

of course, after his bad '03 season, the Pats disclosed a back injury that he had been hiding, which seems to be a non issue.

Yeah Janikowski's a sleeper this year. His leg strength make him extra valuable in leagues that award bonus points for 50+
