Your Dallas Cowboys Kicker

Dan Bailey

Expert Consensus Ranking: 5
My Ranking: 2

Dan Bailey was everything in week one against the New York Giants. He made two kicks from beyond 50 yards and two shorter kicks.

His career field goal percentage is now up to 90.8 percent. He’s automatic and has the leg to make the kicks from a distance.

You are going to start him in every league that uses a kicker.

One to Start

Roberto Aguayo, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Arizona Cardinals

Expert Consensus Ranking: 22
My Ranking: 18

Fantasy Football - Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings - Week 2 1Roberto Aguayo struggled during the preseason. He STRUGGLED.

The Tampa Bay front office was looking pretty foolish, but then Aguayo came through in the first week of the season against the Atlanta Falcons. The rookie out of Florida State made all four of his extra point opportunities. He made his lone field goal opportunity from 43 yards.

Going up against a solid Arizona Cardinals defense, the Buccaneers may not get in the end zone as often this week. This will lead to more field goal opportunities for Aguayo.

Flawless Forecast: 3/3 on field goals, and 2/2 on extra points.

One to Sit

Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens vs Cleveland Browns

Expert Consensus Ranking: 2
My Ranking: 7

Fantasy Football - Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings - Week 2 2Justin Tucker is a great kicker, don’t get me wrong. He is as good as it gets. Were it not for the matchup, I’d have Tucker ranked just below Dan Bailey.

Playing the Cleveland Browns in week two, the Baltimore Ravens may not score anything but touchdowns.

In week one against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cleveland Browns gave up 29 points to a rookie quarterback making his first NFL start. The Eagles have weaknesses along the offensive line, yet they were able to consistently score.

The Baltimore Ravens have a better quarterback, better group of running backs and receivers, (all together) and better coaching. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Ravens didn’t have a field goal attempt in week two.

Flawless Forecast: 1/1 Field Goals, 3/3 point after attempts.
