2017 Kicker Survivor
Kickers remaining/eliminated: 34/107.
Buy-in to be listed: one FGA in or 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:
- Most 50+ yard FGMs during streak
- Average distance of all FGMs during streak
- FG% during streak
