Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Kicker Rankings 2022

Matt Gay, Los Angeles Rams

After helping the Rams win Super Bowl LVI, Matt Gay enters the 2022 season as the top kicker for fantasy drafts.

Kickers are often the forgotten man on a fantasy football team, and that sentiment probably isn't helped by the volatility at the position. Consider that Daniel Carlson led all kickers in fantasy points (Athlon scoring) last season and he was preceded by Jason Sanders in 2020.

Both remain options for 2022, but Carlson, a top-10 option, is much more likely to be drafted than Sanders (No. 17). The No. 1 kicker this year is Matt Gay, who helped the Rams win the Super Bowl and was fifth in fantasy scoring last season. But the more popular choice just may be Evan McPherson, his kicking counterpart on Super Sunday to cap off his impressive rookie season with the Bengals.

And of course, we can't forget about Justin Tucker, the most accurate kicker in NFL history who also holds the record for longest field goal made (66 yards). So I guess some kickers are remembered after all.
