Last week, I previewed the top 10 week 1 fantasy football kickers. At the top of the list was Dan Bailey, who actually did lead all fantasy kickers in scoring with seventeen points last week. Week 2 brings a different set of matchups to the table and a new grouping of rankings. For more week 2 fantasy Football rankings, check out the link posted here.

1. Dan Bailey.

It's kind of hard not to rank Dan Bailey as the top kicker of the week after he went off against the Giants in week 1. Dan Bailey will continue to be an elite kicker for as long as Dak Prescott fails to get the ball into the end zone effectively.

In week 2, he will face a Redskins team that just allowed 38 points to the Steelers and should get plenty of opportunities for points.

2. Stephen Gostkowski.

The Miami defense shut down the Seattle offense in week 1 and almost managed to pull out a victory. In week 2, the Patriots will play that Miami defense and could have a tough time scoring touchdowns with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback. Gostkowski should be able to take advantage and nail some field goals when the Patriots get within scoring range.

3. Blair Walsh.

The Vikings kicker did miss two field goals and an extra point in week 1, but he made up for it by making four field goals and scoring 13 fantasy points. He will now have an excellent matchup against a Green Bay team that forced Jacksonville to kick a ton of field goals in week 1.

4. Wil Lutz.

Lutz plays on a high scoring Saints offense, which means that he gets a ton of opportunities for fantasy points in every game. The Saints rookie scored nine fantasy points in week 1 and will get even more opportunities against a Giants defense that let Dan Bailey score seventeen fantasy points in week 1.

5. Jason Myers.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have problems scoring touchdowns against any team, and I doubt things will be different in week 2 against the Chargers. Myers made all three of his field goals and two extra points in week 1, and should have a similar number of chances for fantasy points against a Chargers defense that allowed the Chiefs to come back in week 1.

6. Justin Tucker.

The Baltimore Ravens kicker is one of the best in the business and proved it by converting both his field goal attempts in a week 1 game against Buffalo. He nailed a fifty yard field goal and converted another short field goal and scored nine fantasy points in week 1. He should get more opportunities in week 2 thanks to a matchup against a Browns team that looked disastrously bad in week 1.

7. Matt Bryant.

The Falcons kicker made all three of his field goals in week 1 and scored double digit fantasy points in his first game of the season. Now Bryant will get to play against a Raiders defense that got absolutely roasted for 34 points in week 1. Expect a solid game from Bryant in week 2.

8. Adam Vinatieri.

I'm always a little wary of any fantasy players who have to deal with the Broncos defense, but Vinatieri should be least affected by them in week 2. If the Broncos defense does manage to stop the Colts in the red zone, Vinatieri will get chances to score fantasy points and will again be a top five kicker in week 2.

9. Chris Boswell.

The Steelers kicker has so many opportunities to score fantasy points that he has to be in the top 10 almost every week. In week 1, he converted five extra points and his only field goal en route to a nine point fantasy day. In week 2 expect more fantasy opportunities against a Bears defense that gave Nick Novak plenty of opportunities for field goals.

10. Graham Gano.

The 49ers allowed exactly zero points to the Case Keenum led Rams at home. That won't happen again when the 49ers travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers. This time, Gano will have plenty of chances to showcase the elite fantasy kicker that he is against a 49ers defense that will have plenty of trouble with Cam Newton.
