2017 Kicker Survivor

Kickers remaining/eliminated: 5/138.

Buy-in to be listed: one FGA before Week 6.

Kicker with the longest remaining active streak once every kicker at all 130 FBS schools has missed a field goal attempt wins the competition. First missed field goal eliminates a kicker from the competition.

A minimum number of attempts for eligibility may be applied later in the season. If necessary to determine a champion, tiebreakers are as follows:

  1. Most 50+ yard FGMs during streak
  2. Average distance of all FGMs during streak
  3. FG% during streak

Updated through 10/07 games. Red=eliminated (missed field goal).
