Here’s an updated look at my fantasy football kicker rankings.

1. Stephen Gostkowski, NE
2. Nate Kaeding, SD
3. Garrett Hartley, NO
4. Mason Crosby, GB
5. David Akers, PHI
6. Ryan Longwell, MIN
7. Lawrence Tynes, NYG
8. Matt Prater, DEN
9. Rob Bironas, TEN
10. Shayne Graham, BAL
11. Dan Carpenter, MIA
12. Neil Rackers, HOU
13. Jay Feely, ARI
14. Robbie Gould, CHI
15. Sebastian Janikowski, OAK

Notable changes:
– I bumped Stephen Gostkowski to the top slot as I think New England’s offense will be firing on all cylinders this year.
– I added Neil Rackers to the list as he won Houston’s kicker battle against Kris Brown.
– I dropped Jeff Reed off the list because the Steelers could struggle early with Big Ben and Byron Leftwich out.
– I swapped Garrett Hartley and Ryan Longwell. New Orleans’ high-powered offense should allow Hartley to put up a ton of points. I don’t think the Vikings will match last season’s production.
