2008 Fantasy Football Rankings
Top 150 Players
Quarterbacks
Running Backs
Wide Receivers
Tight Ends
Defenses

  1. Jeff Wilkins, Rams
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 2.
    Sign me up for Jeff Wilkins. He hits 50-yarders and kicks inside for half the games.

    A quick word on kickers: Don't take one until the final two rounds of the draft. Look at the point differential between Jeff Wilkins and the No. 17 guy on this list: Just 20 points. That's 1.25 points per week. I'd rather take a sleeper running back or receiver in the middle rounds.
    Projected Stats: 29-34 FG (4-5 50+). 36 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 141

  2. Adam Vinatieri, Colts
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 1.
    Mr. Clutch was 9-of-11 from beyond 40 yards last year. That said, he hasn't notched a 50-yarder since 2002. His extra points, 40-yard accuracy and the fact that he plays indoors make up for it.
    Projected Stats: 28-32 FG (0-1 50+). 42 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 137

  3. Robbie Gould, Bears
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 10.
    Robbie Gould didn't attempt a 50-yarder in his second season, but he connected on 12-of-14 attempts from 40-49. Pretty solid. Gould may not win any beauty pageants, but he's an outstanding fantasy kicker because his offense has trouble getting into the end zone.
    Projected Stats: 29-34 FG (0-0 50+). 41 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 137

  4. Nate Kaeding, Chargers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 4.
    Kaeding has missed only 11 field goals in his entire NFL career, so he's dependable. However, he has just one attempt from beyond 50 yards since 2004.
    Projected Stats: 24-28 FG (1-2 50+). 55 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 135

  5. Josh Scobee, Jaguars
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 8.
    Josh Scobee had a breakout season in 2006, connecting on 14-of-19 attempts from beyond 40. He has three 50-yarders in three NFL seasons. Not a bad option in fantasy.
    Projected Stats: 27-33 FG (1-2 50+). 40 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 133

  6. Matt Stover, Ravens
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 6.
    Still one of the top kickers in the game.
    Projected Stats: 29-32 FG (1-1 50+). 34 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 132

  7. Shayne Graham, Bengals
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 3.
    Shayne Graham is reliable beyond 40, and he kicks tons of extra points.
    Projected Stats: 26-31 FG (1-2 50+). 42 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 129

  8. Rian Lindell, Bills
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 19.
    An excellent kicker in fantasy football, Rian Lindell is 20-of-25 from beyond 40 yards the past two years, including 5-of-5 from 50-plus.
    Projected Stats: 26-29 FG (3-3 50+). 36 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 127

  9. Josh Brown, Seahawks
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 7.
    I like Josh Brown as a fantasy kicker because he gets a lot of opportunities to hit field goals from beyond 50 yards. He's nailed eight the past two seasons.
    Projected Stats: 22-27 FG (4-7 50+). 44 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 125

  10. Neil Rackers, Cardinals
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 5.
    I think all the publicity got to Neil Rackers last year; he was only 8-of-17 from beyond 40 yards. Be careful if you draft him. Like baseball closers, kickers can be head cases.
    Projected Stats: 24-33 FG (3-6 50+). 39 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 124

  11. Jason Elam, Broncos
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 12.
    A solid kicker despite his age (37). He hit a 51-yarder last year.
    Projected Stats: 24-28 FG (1-2 50+). 43 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 124

  12. Jay Feely, Dolphins
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 17.
    I have a feeling Jay Feely will get to kick tons of field goals, given that Miami's offense will undoubtedly have trouble getting into the end zone.
    Projected Stats: 29-34 FG (2-3 50+). 25 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 124

  13. Jason Hanson, Lions
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 14.
    He's 37, but Jason Hanson still has a few solid seasons left in the tank. He has hit an average of 2.3 50-yard field goals the past four years.
    Projected Stats: 25-30 FG (2-4 50+). 38 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 123

  14. Rob Bironas, Titans
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 21.
    Rob Bironas only hit 22 field goals last year. Keep in mind that he was hindered by Kerry Collins and Vince Young's early growing pains. In December, Bironas was nailing about three kicks per game. He's also good for a 50-yarder or two per season.
    Projected Stats: 25-33 FG (2-4 50+). 37 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 122

  15. Jeff Reed, Steelers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 20.
    Has an average of only five kicks from 40-49 the past three seasons. Heinz Field is not a friendly place for kickers.
    Projected Stats: 24-30 FG (1-2 50+). 42 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 122

  16. Mike Nugent, Jets
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 16.
    Mike Nugent has become one of the top kickers in the game. He'll have more opportunities to hit from beyond 40 in 2006, based on probability alone.
    Projected Stats: 25-28 FG (2-3 50+). 37 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 122

  17. David Akers, Eagles
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 9.
    His 23 attempted field goals in 2006 were a statistical anomaly. He's still one of the top kickers in the NFL.
    Projected Stats: 23-29 FG (1-2 50+). 42 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 121

  18. Stephen Gostkowski, Patriots
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 18.
    Not worth drafting until he proves he can consistently hit long field goals.
    Projected Stats: 22-29 FG (1-2 50+). 48 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 119

  19. Joe Nedney, 49ers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 15.
    There's rarely any bad weather in San Francisco, so you don't have to worry about that. Joe Nedney's extra-point attempts will undoubtedly increase this season.
    Projected Stats: 25-31 FG (1-2 50+). 33 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 119

  20. John Kasay, Panthers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 11.
    John Kasay has hit at least three 50-yarders the past three seasons. There's not much more you can ask from your fantasy kicker.
    Projected Stats: 24-29 FG (3-6 50+). 32 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 118

  21. Olindo Mare, Saints
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 13.
    Won't hit many 50-yarders, but he's very effective from 40-49. The fact that he'll be playing indoors only helps matters.
    Projected Stats: 22-27 FG (1-4 50+). 42 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 117

  22. Lawrence Tynes, Giants
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 32.
    Not the most reliable kicker in the world. You should probably look elsewhere.
    Projected Stats: 23-30 FG (1-2 50+). 34 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 112

  23. Mason Crosby, Packers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 28.
    I wouldn't draft a rookie kicker in my fantasy league, but that's just me.
    Projected Stats: 24-30 FG (1-2 50+). 31 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 112

  24. Phil Dawson, Browns
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 22.
    I have no doubt in my mind that Phil Dawson will rebound from a dreadful 2006 season. He was 27-of-29 in 2005.
    Projected Stats: 26-29 FG (1-1 50+). 24 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 110

  25. Matt Bryant, Buccaneers
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 23.
    Although Matt Bryant is known for the 62-yarder he hit against Philadelphia, he was just 5-of-9 from 40-49 yards last season. Bryant was, however, 10-of-11 from that distance in 2005.
    Projected Stats: 22-27 FG (1-2 50+). 33 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 109

  26. Nick Folk, Cowboys
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 34.
    Likely to beat out Martin Gramatica as Dallas' starting kicker. Not really sure what to expect.
    Projected Stats: 18-25 FG (1-2 50+). 44 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 105

  27. Kris Brown, Texans
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 29.
    Hasn't hit two or more 50-yarders in a single season since 2002. Didn't nail any last year. He did, however, have 11 from 40-49, which has to be a statistical anomaly.
    Projected Stats: 22-30 FG (0-2 50+). 30 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 104

  28. Ryan Longwell, Vikings
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 24.
    Hasn't had a good season since 2004. Stay away.
    Projected Stats: 21-26 FG (1-3 50+). 28 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 97

  29. Sebastian Janikowski, Raiders
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 25.
    "Sea Bass" is only 3-of-10 from beyond 50 yards the past two seasons. He hasn't hit better than 72 percent since 2004. There won't be many extra points either. I wouldn't take him.
    Projected Stats: 21-29 FG (2-5 50+). 21 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 94

  30. Justin Medlock, Chiefs
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 36.
    Given that Justin Medlock's a rookie, I'd stay away this season. I just don't know what to expect.
    Projected Stats: 21-27 FG (2-4 50+). 33 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 89

  31. Shaun Suisham, Redskins
    ESPN Positional Ranking: 33.
    Not really sure what to expect with Shaun Suisham. His offensive sucks anyway.
    Projected Stats: 17-22 FG (1-3 50+). 25 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 82

  32. Billy Cundiff, Falcons
    ESPN Positional Ranking: N/A.
    Ugh.
    Projected Stats: 12-19 FG (1-2 50+). 17 XP.
    Projected Fantasy Points: 57
