Fantasy Football 2014 rankings and stat projections: Kickers

Wednesday August 6th, 2014

You're not going to select a kicker in the first round of your fantasy football draft. Quite frankly, nobody is. But grabbing the right kicker can make a difference for your team.

POSITION PRIMERS: QB | RB | WR | TE | K | DST

In general, you want a kicker tied to a good offense. Seven of the top 12 fantasy kickers from last year were on teams that were in the top 12 in the NFL in scoring. Focus on the offenses that are projected to be among the best in the league, and chances are you will find a good kicker who will score with regularity.

Find all our kicker fantasy rankings -- as well as stat projections -- below.
