In fantasy football kickers and defenses are always interchangeable week-to-week based on matchups.
As a result, no matter what everyone else is doing at your fantasy football draft or what your commissioner is telling you to draft for the position you need, don't draft a kicker or defense until the very last two rounds.
It is easy to go on the bandwagon feeling that you need a defense or kicker because everybody else is taking them.
This is simple logic. If everyone jumps off the bridge, are you going to do it too? The answer is no for you band-wagoners out there.
Take a step back and stick to your strategy.
I repeat: don't draft a defense or kicker until the very last two rounds.
