1. Justin Tucker (BAL)

2017 Projections View Justin Tucker's 2017 projected stats.

Tucker led the league in made field goals last year and was one of five qualified kickers to make every PAT attempt. Despite finishing 26th in extra-point attempts, Tucker was the second-highest scoring kicker, helped by his league-high 97.4 percent field-goal conversion rate. He was solid from distance too, as he was 24 of 24 from 40-plus yards, including 10 of 10 from 50-plus. The Ravens' offense isn't expected to make a leap this year, but Tucker's accuracy, especially from deep, should keep him as one of the highest scoring kickers.

2. Dan Bailey (DAL)

After leading the league with a 93.8 percent field-goal conversion rate in 2015, Bailey regressed last year, missing five of his 32 attempts for a career-low 84.4 percent. However, three misses came from at least 50 yards and two more from at least 40, so at least he hit the attempts he should have, including a perfect 46 of 46 on his PATs. The Cowboys' offense is expected to be an elite unit again, which should give Bailey enough opportunities to climb the scoring chart, though a return to his high accuracy rate of the past would help.

3. Stephen Gostkowski (NE)

2017 Projections View Stephen Gostkowski's 2017 projected stats.

After leading the league in scoring four consecutive seasons, Gostkowski took a major step back in 2016. Part of his decline came from missed PATs (he had three), but it was more to do with the combination of fewer field-goal attempts and lower accuracy. His 32 attempts tied for 14th in the league, and his 84.4 percent success rate marked the first time he made fewer than 91 percent since 2012, putting him lower than 15 others (min. 10 games). Given his career history, it wouldn't be surprising to see Gostkowski improve in 2017, but he is not the clear-cut top option anymore.
