Orlindo MARE...?

Postby Clevelander » Wed Sep 17, 2003 8:57 am

everyones wonder as i am as to when his numbers..really his fieldgoals will start...

has anyone dropped him yet as i am considering in doing, theres alot of free agents on the wire that have been at least producing numbers and its those possible 5-6 points at least that can make a difference...

whats everyones thoughts on him, keep him or move on...

I have Mare and John Hall (Wash) and Jeff Reed (Pitt) are both available. Anybody like these guys? Reed fits nicely into my bye situation.

Had Mare in 2 leagues, dropped him after week 1 for the Vikings kicker in one league, and dropped him this week in the other to get the Seahawks kicker. Im avoiding all Dolphins this week going up against the vaunted Bills Defense. :-/
The only thing we have to fear is.... another injured Denver RB!!!!!!!!

Dude, kickers are a dime a dozen. Unless you're a homer and HAVE to have your team's kicker, just play matchups. If you see a kicker on waivers who looks like his team will do well, go for it.

I dropped Mare for Reed. I figured he has tremendous defensive upside as he had a beautiful trip on the KC runback guy last week. Always go with a good tripper ...

Kicker threads should come with a mallet attached..then you can play whack-a-mole...err..thread with it.

not banging on the poster...but it's sorta a given that kickers are enigmatic when it comes to fantasy football.

Haha, my thoughts exactly! ;) ;) ;)

Seriously, unless you have one of those truly elite kickers who seem less prone to the usual ups and downs of a kicker, it's not worth agonizing over them. One day a team's offense will be so explosive they see the end zone every possession, another it'll be so anemic that they never get past midfield for an attempt. When you're trying to decide between kickers, pick whoever is more accurate and/or has a more powerful leg. You might also give tiebreaker points to whoever plays in a dome (Elling for the Vikings is a great start, for that reason).

Case in point is Cundiff, who shanked some incredibly easy chipshots in week 1, then tied the record for most Figgies in a game in week 2. Who ever would have started him in week 2 after week 1's performance.

The only kickers who in my mind have any degree of differentiation from the other kickers are Elam and Vanderjact. Elam has the strongest leg in the league, and he worked harder in the offseason than he ever had before in an attempt to get his % up to 90 this year. Vanderjact is the most accurate kicker in NFL history. On the bad side of the spectrum, both Andersons are aging and lack the strength for the deep (and high fantasy point) FGs.

So, that leaves you with 2 great starts, 2 bad starts, and 28 other kickers with absolutely no differentiation. Flip a coin.
