Fantasy Football 2012 - Week 5 Kicker Rankings

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Who can you trust at kicker in Week 5??

Nothing is more fickle each week than picking your kicker. You want a guy on the team that moves the ball, but you don't want your kicker putting up 4 points each week with 4 extra points. And unlike with the other positions, match-ups mean basically nothing. So, the only thing we have to go on is recent historical data to guide decision making.

Here are the Top Five Scorers through Week 4 YTD:

  • Greg Zuerlein - 46
  • Stephen Gostkowski - 44
  • Jason Hanson - 44
  • Lawrence Tynes - 43
  • Matt Bryant - 40

Don't forget to bench Dan Bailey, Jason Hanson, Conner Barth and Sebastian Janikowski, who are on bye.
