Jay Feely | Arizona Cardinals | K
2012 Experience: 12th season
Fantasy Football Outlook: While Jay Feely can still get the job done, his fantasy stock is limited until someone steps up at quarterback. While I’m sure both Kevin Kolb and John Skelton will have their moments this year, I can’t say for certain that Feely will be worth adding at the end of your draft.
What will help his odds is if the Cardinals defense can carry over their success from late last season, and the additions of Ryan Williams (back from injury) and rookie receiver Michael Floyd, should allow for more opportunities for Feely.
Still, error on the side of inconsistency with this offense, and they will likely find themselves blown out against quality offenses on the road.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Jay Feely move to Arizona was going to be a great move for his accuracy and ability to kick from further parts of the field, but unfortunately, the Cardinals offense was horrible last season. Assuming the Cardinals land Kevin Kolb or Kyle Orton this summer, Feely’s fantasy outlook will be stronger as he will have the type of team around him to make him worth starting in at least twelve team leagues. Look for Feely to have a bounce back season as it looks like the Cardinals may find the playoffs once again, in a weak division.

Jay Feely had a good year and a solid playoffs for the Jets in 2009. One would have thought New York would resign Feely but instead they threw him a curve ball and signed former Cowboys’ kicker Nick Folk. Now, Feely is in an even better situation for fantasy as he is the new kicker for the Arizona Cardinals. Look for Feely to get steady opportunities with Matt Leinart (fewer touchdown conversions more field goals) under center.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Jay Feely has been a respectable kicker for most of his NFL career since his days with Tom Brady in Michigan. Last season Feely continued to post respectable numbers as he was thirty of thirty six on field goal opportunities.
Unfortunately, for Feely the Jets wanted to pay him 300,000 less this season and that wouldn’t work for the veteran. Because of this, Feely landed in an even better situation (in my opinion) with the Arizona Cardinals.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: With Kurt Warner gone to retirement the kicking game should open up once again as Matt Leinart is under center. Beyond the loss of Warner, the Cardinals also traded away touchdown maker Anquan Boldin to the Ravens.
This leaves the team with only one proven touchdown maker in the passing game as Larry Fitzgerald is still a stud. In the running game, both Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells can score but those are the only main options for touchdowns. Steve Breaston is a good yardage receiver, but he’s yet to prove he can score with any regularity.
Look for the Cardinals to stay close in most of the games they play and that means Feely will get consistent opportunities to score points. What is also nice for Feely is that he is now in Arizona with a nice cushy Dome stadium to play in.
Even better is that he plays in the warm weathered NFC West, and he will play the AFC West this season. Look for a lot of good weather games and scoring opportunities for this veteran in 2010.
– Good Offense
– Plays In Dome / Good Weather
– Should Be Consistent
– Average Leg
