Fantasy Football 2012: Preseason Look at Top 20 Kickers

San Francisco's David Akers (108 field goals from 2009-11) nailed 44 field goals last year, an NFL single-season record.

The following countdown touts the top 20 kickers for the 2012 fantasy season.

To clarify, these rankings were conceived with standard-scoring leagues in mind, especially ones that reward bonus points for field goals of 40-plus yards, 50-plus yards and even 60-plus yards.

As stated numerous times in various blogs over the last five years, I am not the biggest admirer of kickers, from a value perspective.

While I appreciate their skill level and capacity for multiple field goals on a game-by-game basis, the majority of kickers are eminently replaceable assets when drafting in the late rounds...or dropping/adding players during NFL bye weeks.

I'll most likely update these rankings in late August.

Enjoy the show!
