Kickers – 2012 Fantasy Football Projected Stats

Photo By: Icon SMI

After his final game with the Eagles, we had to wonder if David Akers best days were behind him. After all, Akers would be turning 36 years old as he headed into free agency as Philadelphia went with Alex Henery in the draft.

As the lockout ended and free agency finally got underway, Akers landed with the 49ers after Joe Nedney called it a career. San Francisco clearly wasn’t going to have the same high-scoring offense we saw in Philadelphia, and we had to wonder if Akers would be good for 30 field conversions in a season.

For the first time in as long as I can remember, I had Akers listed outside the top ten kickers to target on draft day. Boy was I wrong, as the 49ers finally had the breakout season we expected to see in 2010, and with Jim Harbaugh running the show, it was clear early on that he wouldn’t hesitate to use his ace kicker, if the situation called for it.

Why not, as it takes some time for a kicker to establish that faith with a coaching staff and outside of his playoff performance against the Packers; Akers has been one of the more reliable kickers in the game for years.

Not only did Akers lead all kickers in fantasy points; he set a league record for attempts (52) and conversions (44) in a single season. While the game scripts will likely change in 2012, because of a tougher schedule, Akers should still be a lock for over 32 conversions and we know he has the upside for more in this situation.
