St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein has already made more field goals of at least 53 yards in one season than any rookie in NFL history.

St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein has made four field goals this season of at least 53 yards, which the NFL says is the most ever by a rookie. Zuerlein made a 53-yarder on Thursday in the second quarter against the Arizona Cardinals to help his team to a 17-3 win.

Fantasy Impact: There were some making the argument that Zuerlein was the top rookie in the NFL in the first month of the season and he's certainly been a big hit with his fantasy owners. It's hard to predict which kickers will be the most valuable from week to week but it's hard to go wrong with a guy that has this strong a leg and gets to kick indoors for at least half the season. Zuerlein remains a top fantasy option at this position.
