2012 #83– Justin Tucker PK  Baltimore Ravens- Tucker was a better option at the beginning of the season than later when the offense started scoring touchdowns.  Tucker like most kickers are a coin flip in the later rounds of fantasy drafts but Joe Flacco and Ray Rice should be able to move chains and put points on the board so Tucker should be at least an option when it’s time to take your kicker.

Retro #83 2002- Jay Feely PK Atlanta Falcons- Yep #83 is all kickers.  Feely was still kicking away in 2012, but the one thing I remember in 2002 was him missing kicks against the Bears in Week #2!

A Look Ahead #83

ESPN-Miles Austin- As discussed yesterday Austin has gone from the penthouse to #2 option in the Cowboys offense due to the presence of Dez Bryant.  If you’re in a deep league Austin is a good #3 option at WR but if you’re in a 10-team league only time Austin will see your starting lineup will be bye weeks.

CBS Sports– Jeremy Maclin- The question for Maclin and DeSean Jackson is how will Chip Kelly’s offense affect their production.  Maclin for the past two years even though regarded as the #2 option really was the #1 WR in Philly.
