7) Justin Tucker, PK, Baltimore Ravens
Team: Brian Polking | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Tucker was brilliant as a rookie last year, hitting 30 of his 33 attempts and making 14 of his 17 attempts from beyond 40 yards. Meanwhile, the Ravens were already picking up the pace on offense before they gave Joe Flacco a massive contract, and I don't see the Ravens reverting to a defensive-minded approach any time soon. Tucker should have plenty of chances again this season, and he has the accuracy to make the most of them.

8) Ryan Succop, PK, Kansas City Chiefs
Team: Nicholas Minnix | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Andy Reid's kickers (mostly David Akers) seemed to appreciate the number of opportunities that his offense generated. The Walrus seems to be rejuvenated a bit by his new opportunity, and I don't have much doubt that his O will generate FGAs. Of course, if it doesn't, who cares? There'll be 20 other kickers on the wire.

9) Robbie Gould, PK, Chicago Bears
Team: Jared Byrd | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Gould has one of the league's most consistent kickers throughout his career. His field-goal accuaracy percentage usually hovers around 85 percent and he hasn't missed an extra point since 2005. As long as he remains healthy, he's a lock to eclipse the 100-point mark.

10) Tampa Bay Buccaneers D/ST
Team: Ryan R. Bonini | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: I have no problem playing musical defenses all season long, and chances are high that a couple of the top-10 units this year won't even be drafted. I'll start my defensive merry-go-round with the Bucs, who play the hapless Jets in Week 1, which should be good for double-digit defensive production.

11) David Akers, PK, Detroit Lions
Team: Cory J. Bonini | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Akers still has enough leg to contribute from distance and should be a contender for the top place kicker in fantasy this year. Slight accuracy concerns aside, Akers is in a good situation.

12) Dan Bailey, PK, Dallas Cowboys
Team: Keith Hernandez | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: I'm proud to make a Cowboy Mr. Irrelevant in the FAD. I need a kicker, so Bailey is my guy. He kicks for an offense that should be pretty productive, and he kicks in a dome, too. If he doesn't work out, I use the waiver wire on a weekly basis to fill my PK slot. No big deal.
