Fantasy Football has tons of questions. Who should you draft and when should they be played? Should I ever bench a star player like Cam Newton? I'm here to help answer those questions with a top 10 at each fantasy position. This article will examine the ten best fantasy kickers for week 1 of the regular season.

1. Dan Bailey

The Cowboys will be playing without Tony Romo, but it shouldn't matter against a dismal Giants defense. The Giants actually gave up the most points to opposing fantasy kickers last season, and Dan Bailey was no different. He scored nine points each time, a respectable number for any fantasy kicker.

2. Mason Crosby

The Packers are going to score a ton of points on the Jaguars and that will mean plenty of chances for fantasy points. Crosbydidn't have the greatest season last year, but the Packers rely on him and will need to use him against a Jaguars team that allowed the 4th most points to fantasy kickers last season.

3. Steven Hauschka

Seattle's kicker finished with the fifth most points scored last season thanks to a very high accuracy rate. In week 1, the Seahawks will play a Dolphins team that doesn't allow a lot of points to opposing kickers. It won't matter, because Hauschka is accurate enough to be used every single week.

4. Chandler Catanzaro

The Patriots aren't the same team without Tom Brady.

The Patriots will have to rely on their defense and hope to hold a high flying Cardinals offense to field goals during the game. Catanzaro will have plenty of opportunities for a dominant fantasy game if the Patriots can manage to pull off that feat.

5. Stephen Gostkowski

The best fantasy kicker doesn't belong at the top of week 1 fantasy lists.

Without Brady, his value as a fantasy player decreases significantly thanks to the decreased potency of the New England offense. But that doesn't mean he isn't an elite fantasy kicker. When he gets chances, Gostkowski converts and takes advantage. He's just hoping Garoppolo will deliver some of those chances.

6. Justin Tucker

The Ravens kicker is one of the best in the business. He's both accurate and capable of hitting those longer field goals for extra fantasy points. He draws a tough matchup against a Buffalo Bills defense, but should get at least a few opportunities. Tucker'spenchant for making long field goals makes him worthy of a spot in the top 10.

7. Dan Carpenter

Any Buffalo Bills fan knows that their drives tend to end in the red zone. That means more field goal opportunities for Carpenter, who draws a favorable matchup against a Ravens team that allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing kickers last season.

8. Kai Forbath

The Saints kicker isn't the best fantasy player in the world, but he has a favorable matchup in week 1 against the Oakland Raiders.

Last season, the Raiders allowed the second most points to fantasy kickers. In a game that will likely be a shootout, I expect Forbath to accumulate plenty of fantasy points.

9. Blair Walsh

Walsh is one of the best kickers in football and should be played almost every week in fantasy football. Week 1 brings a matchup against the Tennessee Titans, who are about average against opposing fantasy kickers. The Vikings may not be able to score many points with Bradford in week 1, so Walsh becomes an elite fantasy option for the week.

10. Adam Vinatieri

The Colts kicker is still going strong and continues to impress everyone with his sheer accuracy. He gets to play against a Detroit Lions team in week 1 that the Colts shouldn't have any trouble putting up points on.

He made 92.6% of his field goals last season, so he will almost definitely convert if Andrew Luck can get him the opportunities.
