In two fantasy leagues for which I am commissioner I summarily banned kickers. Just because the NFL has them, doesn't mean fantasy leagues do. After all, we all wait until the final round or two and basically pick them out of a hat. There is so much randomness in their production from week to week that you might as well draw straws for bonus points. I'd rather focus on positions that require some level of foresight to predict production. Perhaps the Cleveland Browns are following suit after releasing both of their kickers -- veteran Shayne Graham and rookie Brandon Bogotay -- on Saturday.
