Kicker Help-Gano, Forbath, Walsh, Akers. WHIR!

Postby jacer333 » Sun Dec 23, 2012 2:14 am

Looking to get every point I can tomorrow in a big money league where the game is going to be tight...which kicker would you start?

Graham Gano (CAR @ OAK)
Kai Forbath(WAS @PHI)
Blair Walsh(MIN @ HOU)
David Akers(SF @ SEA)

I have had Akers all year but the potential just isn't there tomorrow. I am leaning with Gano based solely on the matchup and the strong play of Cam Newton down the stretch. Please give me your thoughts before kickoff tomorrow and post a link and I WHIR!

I'm thinking Forbath, mainly because I expect him to get you a lot of PAT's because Washington is going to town tomorrow on the Eagles.

I like Forbath here also, with Gano a close second. XPs are good but you want field goals here, that means the defense has to be able to come up with stops. Oakland won't have an answer for Carolina, you may get 5 XPs in that one. Philly is struggling, yes, but I think they will be able to stop the rookie and force a couple FGs. Cha ching ;-D

Thanks guys. My thoughts exactly wtr, Gano should be on the field often, but unfortunately it will be mostly for XP's as I don't see them offering Cam much resistance, so his matchup might be a little TOO good.

LOL, exactly... I was kinda thinking the same thing about my Gostkowski matchup against Jax this week, but then I slapped myself for overthinking it. ;-D

I already messed up by leaving bryant in... figured he'd have at least one FG in this one, didn't think it would be from the goal line though :-P

Feel you there, I started him with confidence in another championship game. Oh well, he was one of the best choices on paper for the week and still netted some points.
