Heading into Week 2, we have a better idea where to rank kickers for fantasy football purposes. Some of the newcomers to the league looked good, and some of the veterans did disappoint in Week 1.
For Week 2, the matchups will start to play a role. Kickers on teams that are playing games that they should win (Giorgio Tavecchio, as an example) have a higher ranking for this week than they did in the past. Justin Tucker is actually the top-ranked kicker for Week 2, even though he only had two field goal opportunities in Week 1 (he made them both).
