Your Dallas Cowboys Kicker – Dan Bailey
Expert Consensus Ranking: 2
My Ranking: 1
Dan Bailey is one of the best three kickers in football, but doesn’t get the same publicity as big names like Stephen Gostkowski or Adam Vinatieri.
His lack of name recognition isn’t because of ability. It’s because of the lack of playoff opportunity.
Bailey is the only kicker with a career 90% or better success rate on field goals and it’s now approaching 91%. The dude is unreal. I don’t need to tell you to start him. If you own him, you’re starting him. If he’s on the waiver wire, you need to pick him up and start him. He is a must-start.
Flawless Forecast: 3/3 FGs and 3/3 on extra points.
One to Start – Matt Prater (Lions vs Packers)
The Detroit Lions are playing pretty well on offense, but as we saw last week against the Tennessee Titans, they can be stopped.
Going into week three, they face a Green Bay Packers defense that is pretty good, though not great. Matthew Stafford and the Lions are going to have a pretty good chance to move the football and Matt Prater is going to get a chance to kick some field goals.
Flawless Forecast: 2/2 on field goals and 2/2 on extra points
