Top 30 Kickers

With 145 total projected fantasy points Robbie Gould is ranked as the #3 kicker. Last season, he finished as the #10 ranked player so we are projecting a big improvement in 2020. One player who is expected to slip in the fantasy kicker rankings is Randy Bullock who last season was #20 but is projected to be #27 this season. With 103 total projected fantasy points he is still capable of helping teams in certain matchups.
