not sure if this is the correct forum...
what are your thoughts on having a QB and Kicker from the same team start on your fantasy lineup?

In my case: Tom Brady & Adam Vinateri

UPSIDE: If it's for a solid team that should never be close to getting shut out by anybody, then it's a good idea - you'll never get burned at both spots and some games could still be huge for both.

DOWNSIDE: All things being equal, you might want to avoid having too many guys missing the same week with a bye.

In general, you still just want to get the best player at each position, regardless of stuff like this. (That being said, I like having a 3rd WR or TE from the same team as my QB. TE scores, despite this supposed to be the year of the tight end, are still gravy.)
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

LOL, I was just going to say the same thing.

But seriously, a QB and K combo has no fantasy effect. But if you did want to disect it, the more TD passes thrown means less FG attempts but more extra points.

Someone last week (Mercer Boy maybe?) posted this very same subject and they had a (IMO) perfect take on things.

Basically they said a QB/K combo means you are almost guaranteed to get production. If the QB does well and scores TDs up the ying-yang you get good QB scoring and at least some PATs from the kicker. If the QB stumbles you should at least get some good FG attempts from the kicker...

Sounds like a solid strategy to me...
