Stephen Gostkowski checks in at No. 1 on Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 3, but he’s yet to show off his powerful leg. Matt Bryant leads all kickers with two field goals of 50 yards or longer, while 10 other kickers have already connected from that distance as well. Dallas’ Dan Bailey is one of those, as he was good on four attempts from 40 yards and beyond, including a 51-yarder, in the Cowboys’ easy 26-10 road win over the Titans. Dallas travels to St. Louis this week, a game that features two kickers with big legs in Bailey and the Rams’ Greg Zuerlein (career long of 60 yards).
Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
