Kicker Rankings - 2013

***Updated March 19th, 2013***

Kicker is the most important position in the NFL and on your Fantasy team.... Well not quite.  Although the golden rule when it comes to drafting a kicker is always wait until the last round. Well some might want to go one round early just to shake things up. Also make sure to know your scoring system if a kicker is rewarded for extra long FG's you definitely want to take a chance on some long legged kickers. I tend to value those that play in offenses that score a lot of points higher as well as kickers that play in a dome or that are known to be consistent and kick at a high percentage of kicks over 40+ yards. Please take these rankings with a grain of salt.
You do have to have a kicker and trying to figure out the right one can be somewhat of a struggle at times, so here is my early breakdown of 2013's Kickers.
