Championship Round Kicker Recommendations

Kickers put the foot in football with an 11.9 FP average in the Divisional Round. That is so far off a normal week for kickers that it's hard to say much about a system predicated on kickers doing what kickers usually do. When a "Sit" kickers puts up 11 FP, and that group (of one) is tied for the lowest scoring group of the week, does that mean the system worked or not?

As a reminder, the table shows the Average FP of the kickers in each category. A “Win” is if the recommendation is right, relative to scoring 7 FP. For example, three kickers who rated as a “Marginal Start” last week scored over 7 FP, so there were three “wins.” No “Marginal Start” scored under 7 FP, which would have been a “loss”, and none equaled 7 FP, which would have been a “tie.” Remember, a “Sit” kicker who gets less than 7 FP is a “win” for the system (none of those last week) and over 7 FP is a “loss” (one of those); a tie is a 7 FP day (none).

For the playoffs, I’m skipping the seasonal record and missed kick sections.
