You have probably seen it happen. You have a comfortable lead and then your opponent kicks four field goals and three extra points and you lose the game by one point. New England's Stephen Gostkowski can do that to you and is the No. 1 kicker in the 2014 fantasy football draft.

According to a survey of popular fantasy football sites, Gostkowski and San Francisco's Phil Dawson are clearly the No. 1 and No. 2 kickers respectively. They are followed by three kickers - Baltimore's Justin Tucker, Green Bay's Mason Crosby and Seattle's Steven Hauschka - who are tightly grouped at the No. 3 through No. 5 draft positions.

Here are the top 20 kickers for 2014.

  1. Stephen Gostkowski, New England Patriots
  2. Phil Dawson, San Francisco 49ers
  3. Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens
  4. Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers
  5. Steven Hauschka, Seattle Seahawks
  6. Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis Colts
  7. Dan Bailey, Dallas Cowboys
  8. Matt Prater, Denver Broncos
  9. Nick Novak, San Diego Chargers
  10. Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings
  11. Robbie Gould, Chicago Bears
  12. Nick Folk, New Yokr Jets
  13. Shayne Graham, New Orleans Saints
  14. Matt Bryant, Atlanta Falcons
  15. Alex Henery, Philadelphia Eagles
  16. Nate Freese, Detroit Lions
  17. Caleb Sturgis, Miami Dolphins
  18. Ryan Succop, Kansas City
  19. Sebastian Jankowksi, Oakland Raiders
  20. Dan Carpenter, Buffalo Bills

SLEEPER PICK: Matt Bryant of the Atlanta Falcons

IF wide receiver Julio Jones is healthy, then Arlanta's offense will put more points on the scoreboard and Bryant will be scoring more fantasy football points.
