2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Kicker

Sporting News

The free agency period didn't really shake up our 2020 fantasy kicker rankings. But even if it did -- who cares? Nobody cares about kicker rankings in March. In fact, nobody really cares about kicker rankings in August. If we're really being honest, nobody cares about kicker rankings until the last round of their draft, at which point they click the "Kicker" tab in their draft room and think, "Huh, Zane Gonzalez is ranked that high? Guess I'll take him then."

But, if you're reading this, then you're either really bored (aren't we all these days?) or you're really passionate about fantasy football kickers. Either way, we have you covered. We made a few changes from our initial set of offseason kicker rankings after the early free agent moves. For instance, we moved up Matt Gay slightly, as Tampa's offense should be more efficient next year with Tom Brady under center. Ka'aimi Fairbairn took a slight hit because Houston's offense lost its best playmaker after it shipped out DeAndre Hopkins.

2020 FANTASY RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end

Will these factors actually make a difference? Maybe, maybe not. When it comes to kickers, it's almost impossible to predict who will see a lot of field goal attempts or hit a bunch of 50-plus yarders, so you look for little things that could matter. But, even more than that, you look for proven, accurate kickers on good offenses -- and give them a slight bonus if they play indoors or in warm-weather cities. Beyond that, we're all just guessing.
