Summary

Kicker Rank: #1All Players: #183
Gostkowski had another great season, maybe his best to date. He set a career high in field-goal percentage and points. He scored 158 points, giving him two straight seasons with 150-plus points. He made 93 percent of his kicks, missing just three field goals all season. He didn't miss a kick less than 40 yards. Gostkowski has 125 or more points all but one season when he has played a full year. He plays in a great offense and gets plenty of chances for points. Gostkowski has a strong leg and is a fairly accurate kicker (85.6 percent made for his career). And the Patriots have a great offense, giving Gostkowski a few more chances than your average kicker.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
You can make a strong case for Gostkowski to be the top fantasy kicker this season. He is about as consistent as it gets at the position for fantasy teams. His long-distance attempts improved last season, which is a positive, and his point totals remain top notch. We expect another season with around 150 points, making him one of the first kickers off the board come draft day.

New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski had four field goals (46, 34, 51, 53) in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. However, he misfired badly on the game-winning field goal at the end of regulation from 42 yards out to give the Cardinals the huge upset. 'I felt good going out there and it wasn't the smoothest hit, and I looked up and I saw it was left, and you know, sometimes the ball just doesn't fly your way,' Gostkowski said.

'Everything gets a little blown out of proportion,' Gostkowski said. 'Our field, when we had grass, was tough to kick in too.'
