Fantasy Football 2013: Kicker Rankings

New England's Stephen Gostkowski edges out the rest of the field for No. 1 at his position

Even kickers haven't been immune to the injury bug as league-wide preseason action gets ready to heat up.

While Tynes doesn't even appear in the top half of Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings, it doesn't mean the veteran should be ignored either. After all, how many last year predicted that Minnesota's Blair Walsh would go from  unheralded rookie to an All-Pro and fantasy's No. 1 kicker?
