I know that kickers are not everyone’s favorite position, and trying to project kicker success (outside of accuracy) is extremely difficult. I think I have found an easy draft “rule” that ensures your kicker choice has relevance.
Basically, the goal is to target choosing a kicker who can complement your Position Players. If I have Michael Thomas, Josh Jacobs, and Amari Cooper, then I’ll be looking (in the last round) for the kicker from either the Saints, Raiders, or Cowboys. When a Position Player scores a touchdown, the kicker gives it extra, if the position player doesn’t score, or the team’s drive stalls, then I have a a higher chance of salvaging a drive with 3 points from the kicker. Having Greg Zurlein (dallas) would help to raise the floor of starting Amari Cooper. Please rip this strategy apart, or provide your own logic on how you draft kicker.
