1. Stephen Gostkowski (NE)

2016 Projections View Stephen Gostkowski's 2016 projected stats.

Gostkowski is without question the best kicker in fantasy football. He plays on a team with an elite offense, which gives him plenty of field goal and extra point opportunities, and he is extremely accurate. The Patriots have gotten more points from their kicker than every other team in each of the last four years, with Gostkowski hitting at least 91 percent of his attempts in the last three. He ranked fifth in field-goal attempts last season and third in PATs, and he was one of only five kickers to make all of his extra points (the only one with more than 36 tries), and he's kicked at least 50 in five of the last six seasons. There is no better kicker to select in the last round of fantasy drafts.

2. Justin Tucker (BAL)

The Ravens' offense has been up and down in recent years, but Tuckers fantasy production has been steady. He has ranked in the top-10 in kicker scoring in each of the last three seasons, while the team has ranked 25th, eighth and 25th in scoring over that span, respectively. Some kickers struggled with the new extended PAT distance, but Tucker hit every single one of his attempts (it's worth noting that his 29 kicks were fewer than all but three teams had). Tuckers only problem over the past two seasons is his accuracy from deep, as he's hit only 8 of 19 from at least 50 yards, but with just one miss from inside that distance in those years, he's certainly consistent enough to be a very solid option in most leagues.

3. Chandler Catanzaro (ARZ)

2016 Projections View Chandler Catanzaro's 2016 projected stats.

Catanzaro tied for the 13th-most field goal attempts last season, but his 53 PATs pushed him to the third-highest scoring total in the league. Things could have been even better had he not missed five extra points, with his 91.4 percent accuracy ranking 24th league-wide. Nevertheless, he was perfect from inside 40 yards, so it's not like the PAT distance should have been overly difficult. He has close to a perfect recipe for a fantasy kicker, as he is on a team with an elite offense and plays half his games in ideal conditions at University of Phoenix Stadium. With the Cardinals' offense expected to be strong again, there's little reason to believe Catanzaro won't be near the top of the kicker scoring again.
