I personally havent gone after Vanderjagt in any drafts that have been done this year, he has just gone way too early for me to justify taking him. I always wait till i have all my starters and some bench depth before i grab my kicker. No way do i take Vanderjagt in the 8th round like ive seen him taken in a few drafts

I would consider drafting him in the second to last round.

You don't. You don't draft a kicker. It's a crapshoot, just pick one up in FA later.

let someone else waste an early pick on him. take your kicker in the last round, 2nd to last in deep bench leagues.

The last round was made for kickers - even "studs" like Mike Vanderjagt and Jeff Wilkins aren't excluded.

I agree.

But look at the cafe auction.

Vandy went for $10 and Wilkins went for $9.
Consider that Michael Bennet, Lee Suggs and Jimmy Smith went for $9. Price, Javon and Charles Rogers went for $8. Bulger and Warrick went for $6. Garcia and Duckett for $5.

I want Vandy on my team but I want these other players on my team before him.

I agree completely Mookie. But the one thing I am scared about is I want one of 4 kickers: Vandy, Wilkins, Akers, or Elam. I am nervous about all the other ones. I think these 4 can be the most consistent, and the dropoff from there is pretty substantial. Dropoff meaning that point ranges may be 40 points. With these 4 this year I think you can be more accurate on forecasting how many points each will produce. While I may not draft Vanderjagt since he will be the first one gone and taken way too early, I would go after one of these other guys before they fall off the board. The other thing to note is I don't recall the last time a kicker was the best kicker and scored the most points in consecutive years.
