A big day for the Falcons' offense means a big day for Bryant. He'll reward his owners with at least nine points, and perhaps more if your league gives out yardage bonuses.
With an offense driven by Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch, Hauschka may finish the year in the top 10 at the position. If the offense shows the necessary juice, consider Hauschka a regular starter.
Bailey's got a huge leg and is part of what could be a very good offense. He should be considered a weekly starter.
I'm not sold on Walsh being one of the best fantasy kickers again this season. That's putting way too much faith in Christian Ponder for my money.
Forbath isn't quite a fantasy starter, but spotty performance in the red zone will give him three field goal attempts against the Eagles on Monday.
Gostowski will start the season perfect, nailing both of his field goal attempts. He's always going to be one of the best fantasy kickers as long as he's a member of the Patriots.
Suisham was very accurate last year and enters the 2013 season as one of those guys who could unexpectedly challenge for the league lead in points.
Brown used to be a favorite of fantasy owners because of his big leg, but he'll get back in the ranks of the weekly starters by being part of a very good offense in New York.
Janikowski still has one of the biggest legs in the league, but the Raiders offense isn't the best place for a kicker. He's worth owning in leagues where you get yardage bonuses.
Dawson could be among the league leaders at the position depending on how this offense develops under Colin Kaepernick. He begins the year as a fringe starter.
Bullock will get squeezed by an efficient offensive performace by the Texans this week, but he could end up as a weekly starter as part of this offense.
A ho-hum night for Prater, who will trot out for just one field goal attempt with Peyton Manning hogging most of the offensive glory on opening night.
Heinz Field is famously tough on kickers, but that isn't the primary reason you want to avoid Bironas this season. We shouldn't trust Tennessee's offense until they prove they deserve it.
With Andy Reid and Alex Smith on board, the Chiefs offense could make huge strides this year. Succop would be a beneficiary.
Gould has been one of the most accurate kickers since entering the league, and is on record as being none too pleased with management after they didn't extend him this offseason. He'll start the season right, going 1-for-1 on Sunday.
Jason Hanson finally called it a career, but the Lions stuck with a reliable veteran in Akers. He had a terrible 2012, but was the top fantasy kicker the previous season.
Vinatieri is still about as reliable as they come, but he's not the fantasy option he was back in New England, and even his first few year or two in Indianapolis. That could change if Andrew Luck brings this offense to the next level.
Lindell could be one of the big winners of the preseason, signing with the Bucs, a team that could have a great offense, in late August.
It'll be hard for fantasy owners to consider Folk this year, given the Jets will contend for the title of worst offense in the league.
Crosby had a year to forget last season, but he's still part of one of the league's most prolific offenses. As long as he's starting for the Packers, he should be starting for a team in ever fantasy league out there.
With an early deficit, Tucker will have a relatively boring night Thursday. He'll be perfect on his attempts, though.
The Dolphins thought enough of Sturgis to let Dan Carpenter go. Fantasy owners shouldn't buy in until we see more of him and the Dolphins' offense.
Gano won't get much of a chance to make an impact going up against the Seattle defense.
Feely will certainly enjoy kicking for an offense helmed by Carson Palmer as opposed to Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley.
The scoring chances for the Bills will be few and far between this week. The Bills just signed former Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter on Tuesday, after rookie Dustin Hopkins came up injured in practice.
Hartley can be a frustrating fantasy kicker because the Saints are so efficient, usually finding the end zone instead of settling for a field goal. He'll give his owners one of those all-PAT days Sunday.
Scobee is a good kicker, but he can't control the success of his offense. Unless the Jags prove us wrong, you won't want anything to do with Scobee this year.
A missed Nugent field goal will loom large after the Bears take home a three-point victory. Stay away from him this week
If Michael Vick and Chip Kelly prove to be a match made in heaven, Henery would be back among the weekly starters at the position. Let's wait to see if that happens.
Greg the Leg may have one of the longest ranges of any kicker in the league, but he won't get a chance to show it off this week.
Um, yeah, until things drastically change in Cleveland, you're not going to want to start a Browns' kicker.
I don't have near enough faith in the San Diego offense to recommend Novak as a player you should consider this season.
