Fantasy Player Projections

 
Kickers
RankTeamPlayerProjectionOpponent
1steelersShaun Suisham

Shaun Suisham

PAT, 3 FGs

Suisham has missed one kick all season and is on pace to score 140 points. Through nine games he has already matched his total of double-digit point games from all of last season (four).

vsravens
249ersDavid Akers

David Akers

PAT, 3 FGs

Akers started the season so strong, much like all of last season, but now he has just six field goals and 13 extra points in his past five games. He's still a good fantasy start, but the scoring opportunities are going to be few and far between against the Bears' defense.

vsbears
3packersMason Crosby

Mason Crosby

3 PATs, 2 FGs

Crosby is barely on pace to reach 100 points, which is unacceptable for a kicker in this offense. He has missed a field goal in four of the team's last five games. His days in Green and Gold are numbered.

4bengalsMike Nugent

Mike Nugent

3 PATs, 2 FGs

This could be a golden opportunity for Nugent. The Chiefs rank among the bottom five in the league for extra points and field goals allowed.

atchiefs
5patriotsStephen Gostkowski

Stephen Gostkowski

3 PATs, 2 FGs

Gostkowski has scored 10 or more points in six of nine games this season, and he hasn't missed a field goal in New England's last five outings. He's money.

vscolts
6falconsMatt Bryant

Matt Bryant

3 PATs, 2 FGs

Bryant was good for two more field goals and three extra points at New Orleans in Week 10. Since the Week 7 bye, Bryant has nine field goals and seven extra points, making him a top-five fantasy kicker.

vscardinals
7buccaneersConnor Barth

Connor Barth

3 PATs, 2 FGs

Barth was good from 40 and 45 yards on two field goals against the Chargers in Week 10, along with four extra points. He now has more extra points (13) over the past three weeks than any other kicker.

atpanthers
8raidersSebastian Janikowski

Sebastian Janikowski

3 PATs, 2 FGs

Janikowski kicked two field goals and two extra points at Baltimore in Week 10. He has just one missed field goal in 22 attempts, and given that he has kicked four field goals in a game twice this season, the Raider is a safe play.

vssaints
9eaglesAlex Henery

Alex Henery

2 PATs, 2 FGs

During Philadelphia's five-game losing streak Henery has scored 30 points, which nets out to just six points per game. Amid uncertainty at quarterback, avoid Henery.

10texansShayne Graham

Shayne Graham

5 PATs, FG

Graham's fantasy value will be minimized in a game that has the look of a blowout. The Texans will score touchdowns -– lots of them.

vsjaguars
11saintsGarrett Hartley

Garrett Hartley

4 PATs, FG

Hartley kicked a field goal successfully against the Falcons for the first time since Week 5, and he added four extra points for the second week in a row. The Saints' offense can be deadly, but Hartley's chances are intermittent, which makes him a mediocre fantasy starter in Week 11.

atraiders
12broncosMatt Prater

Matt Prater

4 PATs, FG

Prater tied his season-long effort, with a 53-yard field goal at Carolina in Week 10. He has five field goals in his past three games, but he has had 17 extra points in his past four games.

vschargers
13bearsRobbie Gould

Robbie Gould

PAT, 2 FGs

Gould had two field goals, including a 51-yarder, in Week 10 against the Texans. He didn't have any extra point attempts, however. In his past four games, he has eight field goals and nine extra points.

at49ers
14cowboysDan Bailey

Dan Bailey

3 PATs, FG

Life is picking up for Dallas -- and for Bailey, who has averaged 9.0 points over the last five weeks. This week, however, Bailey may be lining up for more extra points than field goals.

vsbrowns
15lionsJason Hanson

Jason Hanson

3 PATs, FG

It's been a tale of two seasons for Hanson -- lots of field goals and points in the first five games, lots of extra points and few field goals in the last four. The "bad half" continues into Week 11.

vspackers
16redskinsKai Forbath

Kai Forbath

3 PATs, FG

Forbath has kicked seven field goals but just four extra points in the last three games. Those numbers could flip this week against an Eagles defense that is searching for answers.

vseagles
17ravensJustin Tucker

Justin Tucker

3 PATs, FG

The Steelers have allowed opponents 15 field goals this season, less than two per game. Tucker is coming off a strong performance (13 points), but will not match that level of success against Pittsburgh.

atsteelers
18dolphinsDan Carpenter

Dan Carpenter

3 PATs, FG

Carpenter made his only kick of the day in Week 10 against the Titans, but his 40-yard field goal isn't enough to make fantasy owners happy. He kicked three field goals in his last game against the Bills, but he's too inconsistent to trust right now.

atbills
19brownsPhil Dawson

Phil Dawson

2 PATs, FG

It's been an up and down year for Cleveland's long-time kicker. In the Browns' last game, Dawson made five field goals; the game before that, he managed just one extra point. Against Dallas, expect very little.

atcowboys
20chiefsRyan Succop

Ryan Succop

2 PATs, FG

Succop has averaged 7.3 points per game, placing him in the bottom third of fantasy kickers. That means there are close to a dozen guys on the waiver wire who are safer bets than Kansas City's kicker.

vsbengals
21coltsAdam Vinatieri

Adam Vinatieri

2 PATs, FG

Vinatieri returns home and should receive a warm welcome from the fans. The conditions and the defense will not be as gracious.

atpatriots
22billsRian Lindell

Rian Lindell

2 PATs, FG

Lindell had one field goal and four extra points in Week 10 at New England, but his production has been sporadic over the entire season. That makes him an iffy fantasy starter in Week 11 against Miami.

vsdolphins
23ramsGreg Zuerlein

Greg Zuerlein

2 PATs, FG

Zuerlein was good on a 27-yard field goal and three extra points against San Francisco in Week 10. But he has scored only 26 fantasy points in his past five games, making the rookie a risky fantasy kicker in Week 11.

vsjets
24chargersNick Novak

Nick Novak

2 PATs, FG

Novak connected on his only field-goal attempt in Week 10 at Tampa Bay. He has just five field-goal attempts in his past five games and only one against Denver in Week 6.

Josh Scobee

PAT, FG

An excerpt from "101 reasons why Josh Scobee is not a worthy fantasy kicker" … No. 42: He has scored a combined 10 points in his last three games against the Texans.

attexans
26cardinalsJay Feely

Jay Feely

PAT, FG

In five games this season, Feely has just one field goal or less. Fantasy owners cannot subsist on that kind of production. Look elsewhere in Week 11.

atfalcons
27jetsNick Folk

Nick Folk

PAT, FG

Folk's only kicking opportunity was an extra point in Week 10 at Seattle. In his past two games, he has one field goal and one extra point, which makes him a fantasy kicker to avoid.

atrams
28panthersJustin Medlock

Justin Medlock

PAT, FG

Medlock missed his only field-goal attempt in Week 10, although he did make both extra points against the Broncos. In nine games this season, Medlock has attempted one or fewer field goals in eight of them.
