Shop for the Arizona Cardinals at has Rackers #2 on the List of Overvalued K’s


Fantasy Football site has come out with their list of “Overvalued Fantasy Players” for the 2007 season.  Cards K Neil Racker is two on the list of  kickers on their list of Overvalued Players.  Below are the comments on Rackers:    

Neil Rackers, Arizona Cardinals

Rackers continues to be overvalued because of his spectacular 2005 season. The problem is that his accuracy fell to 75.7 percent last year, as opposed to 95.2 percent in that glorious season. This year, he is a very intriguing case and could go in either direction. Quarterback Matt Leinart has another year of experience under his belt and the team has added help along the offensive line to try to spring Edgerrin James. With these adjustments, they could be poised for a breakout year, which would mean more touchdowns and fewer opportunities for field goals. This makes him a middle-of-the-pack kicking option who definitely should not be one of the first off the board. Additionally, he is in that grey area of kickers since he is not one of the top performers, but also not at the bottom, denoting that there are others who could match his output. He is not a guy that owners should target and he should be picked in the later rounds. In general, fantasy owners seem to select such kickers too early.
