Kicker Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 3

Cade York may be a rookie but he's got a big leg and already has one game-winning field goal to his credit.

My Week 3 fantasy kicker rankings reflect my infatuation with rookie kickers who can nail long field goals under pressure.

So yes, I've got Cade York as a top-12 kicker this week. I have him above notables like Younghoe Koo, Jason Sanders, and Matt Prater.

Part of the reason is all three of those kickers have potentially unattractive matchups. Pittsburgh, York's opponent this week, is right around average in allowing kicker fantasy points so far. And there's something special about this kid.

I know, I know. He missed a key extra point that pretty much gifted the Jets an upset over the Browns this past Sunday. But it seems to have stuck in his craw and he won't let it happen again. If he does miss another PAT, he'll fall out of my top dozen Ks easily. But for now, he's still worth starting this week.

See below for the rest of my Week 3 kicker rankings.
