All 32 kickers ranked following the jump.

Kickers to start: Mason Crosby (Green Bay) and Jason Hanson (Detroit) - The way that Green Bay and Detroit are putting points on the board, you have to start their kickers. Hanson is tied for the lead in kicking points in the league, while Crosby has kicked the most extra points this season.

David Akers (San Francisco) - Akers has been quiet over the last few weeks with 6, 7 and 6 points. He had 15 points the first week and I see another good week if the offense stalls against Tampa.

Kickers to avoid: Steven Hauschka (Seattle) and Josh Scobee (Jacksonville) - Seattle's offense seemed to get going against Atlanta but I think it will struggle In New York, which will limit Hauschka. Jacksonville faces Cincinnati and their offense hasn't even been able to get Scobee into range to even attempt many field goals.
