2. Greg Zuerlein, K, NY Jets

This is the first of two entries on this list where I think the Jets player in question can lead the league in fantasy points scored for their position. Greg Zuerlein was nothing short of spectacular last season, setting a new franchise record for longest field goal made in history.

Despite the Jets being the fourth-lowest scoring team in the league, Zuerlein was tied for 9th in the league in most field goals made.

He missed zero of his attempts within 40 yards and was forced to attempt more 50+ yard field goals this year than any other season in the last decade because the offense struggled so mightily moving the ball.

With an offense that figures to be one of the best in football, the Jets should be moving the football early and often. Lots of drives should end with touchdowns, but for the ones that don't, you can comfortably count on 'Greg the Leg' to knock 'em right down the middle.

With his efficiency and success last year on a horrific offense, there's no reason to doubt him reaching the highest echelon of fantasy kicking this upcoming season with a very good offense.

At whichever round you feel most comfortable grabbing a kicker, pick up Greg Zuerlein, and I promise you will not be disappointed.
