Let’s wrap up our Week 3 rankings with a look at the top kickers:
- David Akers – San Francisco 49ers – at Minnesota
- John Tucker – Baltimore Ravens – vs. New England
- Stephen Gostkowski – New England Patriots – at Baltimore
- Jason Hanson – Detroit Lions – at Tennessee
- Matt Bryant – Atlanta Falcons – at San Diego
- Nate Kaeding – San Diego Chargers – vs. Atlanta
- Sebastian Janikowski – Oakland Raiders – vs. Pittsburgh
- Alex Henery – Philadelphia Eagles – at Arizona
- Blair Walsh – Minnesota Vikings – vs. San Francisco
- Mason Crosby – Green Bay Packers – at Seattle
- Garrett Hartley – New Orleans Saints – vs. Kansas City
- Greg Zuelein – St. Louis Rams – at Chicago
- Robbie Gould – Chicago Bears – vs. St. Louis
- Matt Prater – Denver Broncos – vs. Houston
- Shayne Graham – Houston Texans – at Denver
- John Tucker has been impressive over his first two games, hasn’t he? Having already connected on six field goals, including three from 40-49 yards and two from 50+, he is quickly emerging as one of the better options in the league. With a high-powered offense behind him, he should continue to get opportunities to produce.
- The Lions should start scoring more TD, which is going to help Jason Hanson pad his stats. Considering he has already connected on five field goals of at least 40 yards, he’s on his game and should be considered one of the better options in the league.
- Alex Henery has made just 2 of 3 field goals thus far this season, but he showed last season what he was capable of (24 for 27, as well as 46 extra points). Taking on an Arizona Cardinals defense that has already allowed 7 field goals on the year, this could be the week that he emerges into a viable option. Consider him as a low-end option in all formats.
- Kicking in Denver this week, both Matt Prater and Shayne Graham get a bit of a boost (though both remain low-end options this week). Whenever you are in that environment, you have the ability to connect on some big kicks.
