Lindell, Stover, Kasay all underrated every year. They are all solid kickers.

I thought this year was going to suck for Carney...especially because the Saints have a new kicker...who's name I can't remember off hand...that I thought would beat out Carney for the job, but Carney has been excellent

Kaeding and Gould have also been excellent.

But all those kickers that were drafted before any of those guys...Akers, J. Brown, Graham etc...have not been doing much, mostly XP's

but kickers are such a crapshoot week to week...don't put too much thought into it, like I just did :-B

My bet is that Stover is #1 this year. The offense is improved, but has struggled to get it in the zone this year. He's in for a BIG year.

I also like Vanderjagt a good bit too.

Not nessesarily. Good offense = move ball better and more red zones= more red zones ( or close to red zone ) more fg attempts.

I haven't worked out the numbers, but I would think a good, but pass heavy offense would be best.

Yeah, that'd make sense.

I don't know but I picked up Kasay to fill in for Kaeding ... and he hit 4 FG's ... 48, 49, 51, 53 I believe ... and 4 extra points too!

But between Stover and Vinatieri .... I have to say Stover I guess!

I never see Wilkins mentioned. He's tied with Gould in my league, and I got him when I decided that Tynes was bad call on my part.
