Kickers are a volatile lot as usual, but this week we have at least a two-out-of-three consensus on the top spot with Sebastian Janikowski on top of our rankings as he and the Raiders head to the rarified air of Denver. Sea-bass kicked the game-winner last week for Oakland and should be in for a good week against the Broncos.
Our rankings also reflect the thinking that the Saints-Packers game should be a high-scoring affair in a rematch of last year’s thrilling Opening Night kickoff. Here’s our rankings for this week of the top 10 fantasy kickers for the week. A special thanks to Steve Copps (SC), Jeffrey Littrell (JL), and Matthew Tuckness for joining me (ZT) in these rankings. NR stands for not ranked which counts as a 15 for averaging purposes.
