Kickers are an unusual type of fantasy player. The most consistent kickers are often the ones in highest demand, but they still need to get opportunities to produce. Which kickers in week 3 of the fantasy Football season will be the ones who produce the highest number of points?

1. Graham Gano.

The leading fantasy kicker of week 2 should again get plenty of chances in week 3 against a Vikings team that usually clamps down on opposing offenses in the red zone. That will mean more field goals and more fantasy points for Gano, who has quickly established himself as one of the best fantasy kickers of 2016.

2. Justin Tucker.

Does Tucker ever miss? It's almost an automatic make when Tucker trots onto the field, making him an elite fantasy option every week, even when he doesn't get that many opportunities. He'll get plenty of chances in week 3 against a Jaguars defense that just got lit up by Philip Rivers and the Chargers.

3. Adam Vinatieri.

Vinatieri has scored double digit fantasy points in both week 1 and week 2 of the regular season. In week 3, Vinatieri gets to play against the Chargers in a game that will feature plenty of scoring. Expect Vinatieri to again reach the double digit fantasy threshold that he has reachedin earlier weeks.

4. Dan Bailey.

The most accurate kicker in the history of the NFL is a staple in the top five.

He led all fantasy kickers in scoring in week 1 and will have another chance to do so against a Bears team that just allowed 29 points and three field goals to the Eagles.

5. Stephen Gostkowski.

Gostkowski always scores the highest number of fantasy points among all kickers by the end of the season. Don't let an injury to Jimmy Garoppolo stop you from playing the fantasy star and watch Gostkowski rack up the fantasy points against a Texans defense that will be desperately trying to force the high scoring Patriots offense into field goals.

6. Wil Lutz.

TheSaints rookie kicker is really good, but has scored single digit points in each week of the fantasy season. That's partially due to the fact that one of Lutz's field goals got blocked against the Giants. In week 3, he'll get to play in what is projected to be the highest scoring game of the week.

That means plenty of opportunities for Lutz, who should already be recognized as one of the best kickersin the NFL.

7. Matt Bryant.

Lutz isn't the only quality kicker playing in the game. Falcons kicker Matt Bryant, who has scored 9.5 points per game so far, will also get opportunities. Bryant ranks lower because he is on the road, but should also be a solid option for week 3 of the fantasy football season.

8. Steven Hauschka.

At this point, someone in your fantasy league could have dropped him. The Seahawks kicker scored just 9 fantasy points in the first two weeks of the season and hasn't had many opportunities. That will change in week 3 against a 49ers defense that just allowed the Panthers to rack up more than 40 points in week 2.

9. Cairo Santos.

Is it time to recognize the futility of the Chiefs offense? Santos has scored 25 fantasy points in the first two weeks of the season thanks to a Chiefs offense that can't seem to figure out how to find the end zone. In week 3, the Chiefs will play against a Jets team that allowed 31 points to a Bills team that is in complete disarray right now.

10. Greg Zuerlein.

The Rams might not be able to score touchdowns, but they can definitely kick field goals. Zuerlein scored exactly zero points in week one against the 49ers, but made all three field goal attempts against the Seahawks in week two. In week 3, Zuerlein will get a more favorable matchup against a Buccaneers team that just allowed 40 points to the Cardinals.

His big leg makes him a top fantasy kicker for the week.
