Summary

Kicker Rank: #2All Players: #163
Gostkowski had a career high in points last season, scoring 153. He had double-digit points 10 of 16 games. He had just one game all season with fewer than six points. He also made 83 percent of his field-goal attempts and missed just two from less than 40 yards. He made both his field-goal kicks from 50-plus 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 (84.2 percent made for his career). And the Patriots have a great offense, giving Gostkowski a few more chances than your average kicker.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Gostkowski doesn't have the long-distance potential as some kickers but he is a good bet to finish near the top of the league in points scored. He gets consistent points in a great offense. Expect more of the same this year. You can make a strong case to make Gostkowski the first kicker off the board come draft day. He'll be hard pressed to repeat last year but should be able to get around 140 points.

'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.
