PROJECTED 2014 SEASON STATS
16. Ryan Succop, KC KYEAR1-3940-4950+TOTXPPTS
2013 Statistics15/166/81/422/2852/52120
2014 Projections16/187/92/425/3147/47127
2014 Outlook: Steelers fans weren't the only ones disappointed by Succop's 2013 season. Yinzers watched in agony as Succop's Week 17 whiff against the Chargers allowed San Diego to beat the Chiefs and sneak into the playoffs, sending the Steelers home for good. Succop owners felt that agony all year. The kicker chunked five of 12 tries from 40-plus yards, despite having one of the NFL's strongest legs. He had only four double-digit fantasy games and scored six or fewer points on eight occasions. In Andy Reid's sophomore season with the Chiefs, KC's offense may take a step forward. Just don't expect the same from Succop.

2013 Statistics22/248/80/030/3239/39135
2014 Projections20/228/101/329/3541/41132
2014 Outlook: On the surface, Suisham's stats look good. And it's hard to argue with 30-for-32 on field goal attempts, along with 39 extra points. But dig a little deeper and his numbers get exposed a little. He crushed mostly chip shots in 2013, with field goals of 39 yards or fewer accounting for 48.9 percent of his overall fantasy points, most in the league. Suisham was one of the few kickers who didn't even try a 50-plus-yarder last season, probably because he's only 5-for-14 in his career from that range. Heinz Field is not a great place for long-distance kicks, so don't expect his opportunities to increase.
19. Greg Zuerlein, StL KYEAR1-3940-4950+TOTXPPTS
2013 Statistics17/178/91/226/2834/34120
2014 Projections17/187/83/527/3137/37127
2014 Outlook: Remember Zuerlein? Sure you do. Most second- year kickers don't get three nicknames, after all. But Legatron -- or Greg the Leg, or Young GZ -- hit a few sophomore snags last year, some of which were out of his control. Zuerlein's opportunities from 50-plus dipped from 13 to two last season, and his 28 total tries ranked 21st among kickers. But by almost all metrics, Zuerlein got better as a kicker in 2013, with his overall conversion rate rising from 74 percent to 93 percent. The Rams' offense should improve in 2014, though not enough to warrant bumping Zuerlein into your top 10.
20. Jay Feely, Ari KYEAR1-3940-4950+TOTXPPTS
2013 Statistics16/1911/123/530/3637/37138
2014 Projections17/2010/122/329/3536/36131
2014 Outlook: Last season Feely was a beneficiary of Bruce Arians' high-powered offense, matching career bests in field goals of 40-plus (11) and 50-plus (3). But as should be expected from an NFC West kicker, Feely had his share of low-scoring contests. He tallied five or fewer points on five occasions, three against divisional foes. This inconsistency is what keeps him out of our top 15.
21. Dan Carpenter, Buf KYEAR1-3940-4950+TOTXPPTS
2013 Statistics19/1910/114/633/3632/32146
2014 Projections18/199/103/630/3531/31131
2014 Outlook: It's easy to see why Buffalo ponied up a four-year, $10 million contract for Carpenter. His 14 field goals of 40-plus yards tied for sixth in the NFL last season, and he missed only one kick at home. Carpenter finished in a tie for fourth place with 117 points from field goals, and the Bills have invested heavily to improve the offense. Still, despite Carpenter's strong showing and his newly inked contract, Buffalo kept 2013 sixth-rounder Dustin Hopkins in town to provide some competition. Any time you're wondering whether a kicker will win the job, it's time to find someone else.
