There are two kickers that can make a case for having the best leg in Fantasy Football prior to the start of the 2014 NFL Regular Season. Those kickers are Matt Prater of the Denver Broncos and Stephen Gostkowski of the New England Patriots. In attempting a field goal of persuasion by listing three reasons why Gostkowski is better than Prater.
Stephen Gostkowski Named AFC Special Teams Player of Month After Going Perfect 9-for-9 on Field Goal Attempts http://t.co/BWawzEcEGj— NESN (@NESN) October 31, 2013
1. Gostkowski had more field goal attempts. Gostkowski was 38 for 41 on field goal attempts in 2013. Prater was 25 for 26
2. Gostkowski has had zero field goals and zero extra points blocked dating back to the 2007-2008 regular season when the Patriots went 18-1.
3. New England has a weaker supporting cast of playmakers on offense than the Denver Broncos.
A fantasy owner cannot really go wrong with either Prater or Gostkowski as their kicker. We gave Gostowski the edge over Prater for the three reasons mentioned above.
