The Fantasy dog days #94 gives us our first kicker.  I know kickers are all within a few points by the end of the season, but the difference between winning and losing a lot of weeks can come down to whose kicker knocked in the last second field goal.


Connor Barth- 154 points, His best week was Week #13 against the Broncos when he kicked 3 field goals and 2 extra points.  Barth only missed five field goals all season long and with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense ready to score Barth is as good as option as any when picking kickers in the last round of your fantasy draft.

Retro #94 2002

Pittsburgh Defense- The Steelers Defense was the 7th ranked fantasy defense in 2002 with 51 sacks 19 interception 17 fumble recoveries and 1 Td

Looking Ahead #94

ESPN-Benard Pierce RB Baltimore Ravens- This guy looked like a stud in the playoffs so expect most people that draft Ray Rice to be picking him up in the 5th or 6th rounds

CBS Sports- Bryce Brown RB Philadelphia Eagles- Looks like most experts like Brown going in the mid levels of the draft as a nice second option in Chip Kelly’s run happy offense.
