Thanks for that post. I pretty much look for a Kicker on a top offense that is always on the other teams side of the field.

I also like to risk that and mix it with going against a tough D, that way they get onto their opponents side and get stopped more frequently.

A kicker like Vanderjagt is great, but since IND doesnt get stopped much he just collects the 1 pointers.

Thanks for that list again, very helpful!

I'm a little surprised to see that this is mostly a list of the worst defenses, as opposed to strong defenses that give up points to kickers instead of TDs. Interesting.. as this goes along with my idea of selecting kickers by strong offenses...

The best strategy would be to use teams with the highest Red Zone Field Goal Efficiency rankings based on tiering. Then, look at the defenses that allow the most points per game (in the particular environment), research injuries along the defensive front, check for weather, look to see if the coach is on the fence (he will be more likely to make statements via TDs), etc....

OR

get your hands on Rackers or Graham.

Grab the highest scoring kicker on the waiver wire if he's better than you kicker. There is no such thing as loyalty to a kicker, that's bit me in the past.

Jay Feely is scoring well, and he's available out there in a lot of leagues. And he's already gone through the bye week, that's another plus..

Historically, by the end of the year, most of the kickers won't have too big of a difference in points scored , at least the top 12 guys anyway, I can't see it really being worth changing kickers except once for a bye week, I got Reed in the last round of the draft and have been quite happy with him, he's always consistent, I can't ever remember in my life a Pittsburgh team getting completely shut out.

I agree with a team that can move the ball. The problem sometimes is they may score only touchdowns. Lindell is a good pick because Holcomb can move the ball but he isnt the most consistant. My pick of the week is Matt Bryant. Thanks for the post earlier Plindsey....great info.
