Fantasy Football Week 6 Rankings: Kickers

Anyone who doesn’t think a kicker is an important part of a football team needs to talk the New Orleans Saints. After Reggie Bush returned two second half punts for touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night the Saints were in position to take a three-point lead with under two minutes to go. Then Martin Gramatica did the unthinkable and missed his second field goal of the game. This left the Vikings in decent field position with plenty of time to get themselves into position for a field goal and Minnesota kicker Ryan Longwell hit the game winner with 13 seconds left. This was the second time this season Gramatica missed a crucial kick that could have won the game for the Saints. If not for Gramatica the Saints could be 4-1 instead of 2-3, which they are now. Is it a surprise that the Saints have placed Gramatica on injured reserve for the remainder of the season? We think not.


Kickers can be just as important to a fantasy football team. Bruno Boys Fantasy Football has preached all year not to overlook your kicker, just a few points often decide fantasy football games. As such, please enjoy the Bruno Boys Week 6 Kicker Rankings.
----------------------


1. Nick Folk (Dallas Cowboys) @ Arizona


The Cowboys and Cardinals both can score points in bunches and with both defenses allowing 20 plus points a game, we should have a shootout in the desert. Look for Nick Folk to have a big week.
Point projection: 11 points

 

----------------------

 

2. Mason Crosby (Green Bay Packers) @ Seattle

John Carney and the New York Giants had a field day against the Seahawks in week 5 and you should expect the same from Mason Crosby and the Packers this week. If this game were being played at Lambeau Field, Crosby would be sitting in the top spot. 

Point projection: 10 points

 

----------------------

3. Ryan Longwell (Minnesota Vikings) vs. Detroit 

Ryan Longwell gets the pleasure of playing at home against the Lions this week. The Lions are allowing a whopping, 36.8 points per game, so Longwell should get plenty of opportunities in this one. But, he misses the top spot this week as the Vikings won’t have much trouble getting into the end zone. 

Point projection: 10 points

 

----------------------

4. Matt Prater (Denver Broncos) vs. Jacksonville

Matt Prater has only missed one field goal in 13 attempts this season and has four field goals over 50 yards. Look for another big day from him against the Jaguars this week.
Point projection: 10 points

----------------------

 

5. Nate Kaeding (San Diego Chargers) vs. New England

 

San Diego struggled to score points against the Dolphins week 5 and look to turn things around at home against the Patriots this week. Nate Kaeding has not missed a field goal at home this year and that should continue this week.  

Point projection: 9 points


----------------------

6. Neil Rackers (Arizona Cardinals) vs. Dallas

The Cardinals like the Cowboys have been in some high scoring games this year and this trend should continue when they face off this week. Look for Neil Rackers, who is coming off a 12 point fantasy outing, to have a big game.
Point projection: 9 points

----------------------

7. John Carney (New York Giants) @ ClevelandJohn Carney has not missed a kick this season for the Giants and has double digit fantasy points in each of the Giants' 4 games, but he is just filling in for the injured Lawrence Tynes. As long as this is Carney’s job he remains a must start. Tynes could be activated as soon as this week, so keep an eye on this situation.  Point projection: 9 points
