Well, that changes things, of course. If your scoring system goes against the grain and creates greater differences between kickers than other positions, you clearly have to factor that into your draft strategy.
The key questions then become:
How reliable are kicker projections compared with other positions? Will that gap exist again?
How soon should you grab a kicker? Can you wait, assuming other owners will be drafting Ks late?
Interesting ... what's your league's exact scoring?
In your league you start 1 Kicker and 6 starters at the skill positions (RB,WR,TE).
So for a ten team league, there will be 10 starting K and 60 starting at the Skill positions.
So would you rather end up with the 10th best Kicker or the 60th skill position player as a starter for your team?
In a league that starts 1 RB, 1WR, 1 TE, 1 QB, and 1 K: drafting a kicker early makes more sense because the drop off at the other positions isn't as steep.
This also works as the league gets smaller (because it also lowers the drop off difference)
OK, I'm done. You are right Kickers matter, but they don't need to be drafted high in order to matter.
Stewie: [hitting on some co-eds] I must say, the most recent campus sporting event was quite spectacular.
Co-ed: Aw. Are you in a fraternity, little boy?
Stewie: Not yet, but I'm thinking of joining I Felta Thigh.
well, here's the pts breakdown, as you can see, a K can have 2FG's, and 3xpts, 1touchback and do almost as well as a guy that had 60yds and a TD, but either way, stuck in my own fantasy world, guess i don't really think about others scoring, then again, i'm out to win mine!!!!!!!hah
2 point conversion (rushing, receiving or passing)
Field Goal (50+ yards)
Every 15 yards Rushing
Every 15 yards Receiving
Every 30 yards Passing
Every 50 Return Yards*
Fumble (only if lost to other team)
Fumble Recovery (change of possession)
Blocked Kick (punt, field goal or PAT)
YEAH, I GOT ANDY1234 TO SAY THAT "THEY MATTER", I DID IN FACT NEVER MENTION DRAFTING THEM HIGH, WE DO 20 ROUNDS, I THINK THE EARLIEST I'VE SEEN IS 6TH, BECAUSE THEY HAD A STUD AT ALL OTHER POS. ANYWAY, DONE HERE
In my league you get 4 points for a kick made between 40-49 yds and 5 points for anything made over 50 yards. I had Vanderjagt last year and he helped me win many a game last year...I do agrre that if I can't get Wilkins or Vanderjagt, I will wait until one of the last rounds though. It is the same with defenses...if I can't have BAL, NE, CAR or DAL...I will wait!!!
