Drop Akers for Gould or any of these?

Postby sirsydney » Mon Oct 22, 2012 4:03 pm

I don't want to overvalue a kicker, but Akers has always been ranked highly, but has rarely performed. He's consistently getting 2.5 attempts per game, so there's that. His bye is coming up in week 9, and I don't want to roster 2 kickers. Gould is a FA until kickoff tonight, and he's got good kicker matchups for the next few weeks (and he's done with the bye).

Other options are: Suisham (PIT) , Bailey (DAL), Graham (Hou), Prater (Den), Novak (SD)

Any of these jump out at you. I stream DSTs but don't want to do that for kickers. Should I really care about dropping Akers? His ownership is 97% in Yahoo leagues, so no doubt he gets snatched up.

(10-team league) (.5 PPR) (KR yardage 1/15yds)
QB - Brady, Flacco
WR - Havin, Dez, Maclin, Cobb, Britt, Hartline
RB - Sproles, A. Morris, Richardson, LeShoure, Green
TE - Gates, Daniels
K- Akers

1. Number of teams are in your league = 10
2. How many of each position you start = 1 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 K, 1 DEF
3. The size of your roster = 10 active, 7 bench
4. Your league's scoring system
PPR = 0.5
Pass TD = 4
TD = 6
FG = 3, 40+, 50+
All yardage (KR included) = 15 yds/ 1 point
Sacks = 1
Int/Fum = -1/-2

Drop him. In my league, Graham among others has more points. If you don't have room to keep Akers for his bye, then drop him. If somebody else gets him, oh well. He's just a kicker
