Kickers are incredibly unpredictable and can get extremely hot and extremely cold in the course of the season. This year there’s been a number of young kickers that have emerged as well as some old standbys that have stayed strong and a number that have faded. From week-to-week there’s plenty of variation, including Mason Crosby plummeting out of our rankings and a new number 1.

We apologize for these rankings being later than normal due to site downtime, but Happy Thanksgiving: here’s our top 15 kickers for the coming week:

1 Matt Prater Den at KC 2.0 1 3
2 Stephen Gostkowski NE at NYJ 3.0 4 2
3 Justin Tucker Bal at SD 3.5 2 5
4 David Akers SF at NO 4.0 7 1
5 Sebastian Janikowski Oak at Cin 6.5 9 4
