"I feel healthy again, and that's a beautiful thing," Vinatieri told the Indianapolis Star. "Two years ago, having three surgeries and struggling through that was tough. I got back healthy last year."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Perhaps overdrafted the last few seasons based on his big-game reputation, Vinatieri drastically declined in his age-40 season, hitting only 78.8 percent of his field goals. Although he nailed a career-high four 50-yarders and benefitted from more field-goal opportunities thanks to a much-improved Colts squad, Vinatieri finished 16th among kickers with 115 points. Even if Andrew Luck continues to propel the offense to greater heights (which likely would mean more PATs at the expense of field goals), Vinatieriís best days are clearly behind him.

2012

Like many of his teammates, Vinatieriís value dipped with Peyton Manning out for the season, his scoring falling from 129 to 93 points. Vinatieri has never had a big leg (his three 50-plus yarders last year were actually a career high), and his accuracy has been fairly inconsistent year-to-year. Unless Andrew Luck can make the Colts into a top-tier offense, Vinatieri isnít likely to turn things around.

2011

Vinatieri enjoyed his best season since joining the Colts in 2006, as he made an outstanding 26-of-28 field goals (92.9 percent, second in the league) while making a league-high 51 extra-point attempts. His 92.9-percent accuracy and 129 points, which ranked second and third, respectively, were the highest of his career, save for his 2004 season in New England. Accuracy is paramount for Vinatieri, who will never be ranked among the league leaders in field-goal attempts while kicking for the efficient Colts offense. The Colts were tops in the league last season with an outstanding 67.9 percent red-zone touchdown rate. What's more, theyíre the only team in the league to post a red-zone TD rate of at least 60 percent each of the last three seasons, averaging 67.3 percent from 2008-10 and never scoring less than 66 percent in that span. Unfortunately for Vinatieri, he's a career 82.7-percent kicker. And he's never had a big leg, making just 10 field goals beyond 50 yards in his 15-year career (no attempts last season). He still has fantasy value in a high-scoring offense, but don't expect another top-3 finish in points.

2010

Vinatieri played in just six games last season due to a knee injury. Matt Stover was his standin, but Vinatieri will be back this season. An inconsistent Colts offense stunted Vinatieriís output in 2008, but last season the Colts might have been a little too consistent for the kicker position. The Colts scored 51 touchdowns last season but had just 98 kicker points as they attempted the second fewest field goals in the league. They were one of the most efficient teams from in close, scoring touchdowns on 64.5 percent of their red-zone trips (third in the league). Whatís more, donít expect long-range scoring from Vinatieri. Heís made just two kicks from 50-plus yards in the last seven years, and in the last three years, heís attempted just nine from 40-49 yards.

2009

Vinatieri suffered his worst season last year since joining the Colts, in part because of an inconsistent Indianapolis offense. Vinatieri had just 10 field-goal attempts in the first nine games, and the Colts scored eight fewer touchdowns than in 2007. On the plus side, Vinatieriís length returned after a year in which his longest kick was a mere 39 yards. Thanks to a healthier leg, Vinatieri converted a 50-yarder for the first time since 2002, going 2-for-2. It remains to be seen how exactly the new coaching staff will impact things, but the Colts figure to improve offensively this year - everyone who matters is back, the offensive line is healthier and Peyton Manning will have a full training camp this season. Whatís more, four of five games in Weeks 12-16 are indoors.

2008

Vinatieri had perhaps his worst season in the NFL, but still tied for 10th in kicker scoring. He didn't make a field goal beyond 40 yards last season, attempting a career-low two. Couple that with the fact that he has not made a kick of 50-plus in the regular season since 2002, and it's enough to downgrade him in leagues that award bonuses for long-range field goals. Vinatieri, though, kicks for one of the league's best offenses, and with no potential bad weather games in December, he is still a solid fantasy starter.

2007

Quite simply, Vinateri is one of the greatest kickers in NFL history. He scored 125 points last year in his first season with the Colts. Expect the same productivity this season as the Colts figure to be one of the best offenses in the NFL again. In fact, Colts kickers have averaged 126 points a season the last five years. Finally, Vinateri benefits from playing 11 dome games and only one potential bad-weather date, Dec. 9 at Baltimore.

2006

Vinatieri has always been a valuable fantasy kicker, but was somewhat limited because he kicked outdoors in the Northeast, and because of coach Bill Belichickís reluctance to go for field goals of more than 50 yards. Things change for Automatic Adam in 2006. Heíll kick in a dome for 10 games (eight in Indy, two in Houston) and for a team with a more potent offense. We expect increased points from Vinatieri, who has averaged 116.8 points over the last five seasons.

2005

Vinatieri led all kickers in scoring last season with 141 points, largely because he made a career-best 93.9 percent (31-for-33) of his attempts. Nothing will change much in New England, but Vinatieri is unlikely to keep kicking at that rate Ė heís a career 82.1-percent kicker. Still, with normal output from the Patriots offense, Vinatieri is good for 115-120 points.

2004

One Super Bowl kick made us forget that Vinatieri had his worst season as a pro in terms of accuracy in 2003. Back problems that the team kept quiet were a factor. Still, heís averaged 114 points in the past three seasons and is a virtual lock to reach 106-plus for the ninth consecutive season. Heís only had 14 career attempts from beyond the 50, so they seldom use him deep. For those of you keeping track, the Patriots have two home games in December (technically, one is Jan. 2), but cold weather hasnít usually been a problem for Vinatieri.

2003

The only thing keeping Vinatieri from fantasy greatness is his home address and the offense he's riding with - he's usually one of the top 10 kickers when points are added up, but he's seldom challenging for the top spot. Nonetheless, he remains one of the more reliable kickers around, especially in the clutch, and he's never missed an indoor kick in his career. Vinatieri has four potential bad weather games in December, with three home dates and a trip to New York - but we're not overly concerned as Vinatieri has averaged 112 points during his seven-year career, and he's never finished with less than 106. Vinatieri is a great option with one of your final picks.
