No kicker deserves going higher than the final round. Wait until the very end to fill your kicker slot.

1. Stephen Gostkowski, New England ($1): Has been highly productive the past two years (77 FGs, 67 PATs).

2. Phil Dawson, San Francisco ($1): A steady performer with 36 and 31 FGs the past two years.

3. Matt Prater, Denver ($1): He booted “only” 26 FGs but also kicked a mindboggling 75 PATs.

4. Dan Bailey, Dallas ($1): Money in the bank (61-of-67 on FGs last two years), and he chips in 50-yarders.

5. Justin Tucker, Baltimore ($1): He was off his game last year (26-of-41) but should rebound.

6. Mason Crosby, Green Bay ($1): Rebounded for a very good season (33-of-36 on FGs).

7. Steven Hauschka, Seattle ($1): Sort of flew under the radar last season (33-of-35 on FGs).

8. Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis ($1): The 41-year-old veteran booted 35 FGs last season.

9. Shayne Graham, New Orleans ($1): The Saints’ kicker is always worth a roster spot.

10. Blair Walsh, Minnesota ($1): A lot depends on Teddy Bridgewater because Walsh can kick.

11. Nick Novak, San Diego ($1): Gets a lot of chances in the Chargers’ offense (27-of-34 on FGs).

12. Matt Bryant, Atlanta ($1): Representative of Falcons’ meltdown but was 33-of-38 on FGs in 2012.

Others: 13. Shaun Suisham, Pitt.; 14. Robbie Gould, Chi.; 15. Greg Zuerlein, StL; 16. Alex Henery, Phil.; 17. Sebastian Janikowski, Oak.; 18. Nick Folk, NYJ; 19. Jay Feely, Ariz.; 20. Caleb Sturgis, Miami.
