Fantasy Kicker Index: Which team has the best kicker and who should you stay away from?

Fantasy Kicker Index Justin Tucker
Justin Tucker #9 of the Baltimore Ravens is the best kicker in the NFL. Did he make it as the top kicker in our Fantasy Kicker Index?

By: Josh Shippen, Sid Kalyani

  1.  Justin Tucker

Justin Tucker is the most accurate kicker in NFL history, and is still the most reliable. Tucker is the only kicker on this list I would say is for sure making the Hall of Fame one day.

  1. Bradon McManus

Having won AFC Special Team Player of the Week, McManus deserves to be second on this list. Going 6/6 field goals in a game is a kickers dream. 

  1. Jason Sanders

Jason Sanders has made every single field goal and extra point he has attempted for a long of 52 yards. He is the only kicker with 15 or more attempts this year to make every field goal and every extra point.

  1. Harrison Butker 

Butker doesn’t look good on paper, and the extra points are terrible, but Butker had a game where he put multiple 58 yarders through the uprights. Now that is impressive.

  1. Younghoe Koo 

Koo has been spot on only missing three total kicks for the Falcons, including making two from 50+ yards.

  1. Graham Gano

Graham Gano has been a reliable source for the Giants and has been probably the only reliable source on his team. He would honestly get MVP on the Giants in my opinion.

  1. Wil Lutz

Wil Lutz has been very effective this season, going 9/9 on field goals and 18/18 on extra points. Lutz will definitely be given respect by his team if he keeps playing like this. 

  1. Robbie Gould

The reliable veteran kicker has delivered this year putting through 8 of 9 field goals and all 16 PAT kicks

  1. Jason Myers

Myers has been 100% on all 2 of his field goals, and on 21 extra points. That is so wild that the Seahawks have only gone for two field goals in the whole season!

  1.  Mason Crosby

Mason Crosby is one of the best kickers of the past 10 years, and he has not done bad with 9 of 9 field goals and only one missed extra point.

  1. Rodrigo Blankenship

Rodrigo Blankenship has the most points so far among kickers. His accuracy is very good, 16/18 on field goals and 15/15 on extra points shows us that Blankenship has been a busy many theses past 5 weeks.

  1.  Cody Parkey

Parkey will be forever infamous for double doink, but he has done his job this year with 7 of 7 field goals and 100% PAT completion.

  1. Joey Syle 

Slye has been great on field goals, making 16 of 18 but he missed 2 extra points, which is not ok for kickers.

  1.  Sam Ficken

That man can Ficken kick! Sam Ficken has had a good season with the Jets making 90% of field goal attempts, and 6 out of 6 extra points

  1.  Ryan Succop

Ryan Succop is the best Mr. Irrelevant pick in NFL history (that means last player picked in the draft. Injury ruined his last year with the Titans, but he has been a solid kicker for the Bucs.

  1.  Randy Bullock

Randy Bullock has had a rough past as a kicker but recently he has been quite good, missing only 2 field goals and made all extra points.

  1.  Daniel Carlson

Daniel Carlson has been pretty solid for the Raiders this season, going 16/17 on his extra points and 11/12 on his field goals. 

  1.  Chris Boswell

Chris Boswell has been pretty relaxed on the amount of field goals he has taken, but he has made them all along with going 17/18 on extra points.

  1.  Ka’imi Fairbairn

Ka’imi Fairbairn has on and off the amount of field goals he takes a game. Sometimes it 0, other times it 3. Besides that, Fairbairn has been pretty consistent on his kicks.

  1.  Zane Gonzalez

Gonzalez has been an adequate kicker making 17 out of 19 field goals and 19 out of 20 extra points.

  1.  Cairo Santos

Cairo Santos has been a key part in helping the Bears win. In all the games that the Bears won, Santos has attempted at least 2 field goals, and with his accuracy, he probably made them.

  1.  Josh Lambo

Lambo was starting to have a great season ahead of him, but his injury sidelined him for 4 weeks, but now he is getting ready to return, so that is good news for the Jaguars.

  1.  Dan Bailey

After leaving the Cowboys in 2017, Bailey has not been the same accurate kicker he once was. Even though he is not taking as many field goals as the other kickers, he still needs to make them.

  1.  Matt Prater

Prater does a great job kicking inside the 50, but his leg is not as good as it was and he has not made any of his three attempts over 50 yards.

  1.  Greg Zuerlein

Zuerlein has a history of having a very good leg, setting multiple records for long field goals in his time. He is still mildly effective, but has missed a few field goals and extra points recently.

  1.  Samuel Sloman

Sloman has not been a reliable kicker missing two field goals and three extra points in 2020, but he is young and has time to adapt.

  1.  Jake Elliott

Elliott has been great for the Eagles, even setting records for the longest field goal ever by a rookie. However, Elliott has declined recently and maybe it is time to explore other options.

  1.  Michael Bagley

Badgley blew a game against the New Orleans Saintswith multiple missed kicks whose points would have resulted in a win. Badgley could bounce back, do not count him out.

  1.  Dustin Hopkins

Like everybody else on the Washington Football Team, Hopkins has imploded, making only 70% of field goals and missing a PAT

  1.  Nick Folk

Folk has been in the league for many years, and his prime days with the New York Jets are long gone. Folk is done, and the Pats would be wise to observe if Justin Rohrwasser (practice squad) can become a star.

  1.  Stephen Gostkoski

Gostkowski’s first 2019 game was infamous for multiple missed kicks, and while he has gotten somewhat better this year he still has accuracy issues.

  1.  Tyler Bass

I guess Bass has potential to be an average kicker one day, but when he misses that man misses bad. There was a kick in the Bills Chiefs game that might be the worst field goal attempt I have ever seen from a kicker.
