I got the #1 Kicker

Posted: August 10, 2011 in General

In the perfect fantasy draft world everybody would draft their defense in the second to last round and their kicker in the last round.  Everytime time I see somebody draft one of these positions before I think to myself: one this guy doesn’t know what he is doing, and two that just helps my draft out.  Around the 7-10th rounds prime backup rb and wr time some owners just get a little itchy to pull the trigger on the Jets, Steelers, Ravens, Bucs (if you go way back in drafts).  Sometimes it works out, and they do come through with the best defense, but even then the strategy is not very successful considering the point differentiation between the number one defense and the number twelve defense is around 2 points a game.  That is hardly worth taking a defense 7 rounds earlier for 2 points.  I shouldn’t even have to make this argument about kickers, the problem in drafting a kicker is similar to defense the point difference is between 1 and 12 is nothing, and it is even tougher to predict kicker stats each year.  This advice seems so simple, but every year in every draft I have ever been in somebody does it.  Once the pick is made i just shake my head and move on.
