Simple Kicking has developed a formula to determine who is the best NFL kicker, and who is the best college football kicker. This ranking compares actual points scored vs. the expected average of points scored.
Those who score the most points above expected (“PAX”) train on the Pro-Posts and Go-Posts (highlighted below.) This is based on:
Distance and Hashmarks: FG% changes based on the spot on the field.
Stadium and Endzone: (i.e. Atlanta’s dome has better conditions than Buffalo.)
Crunch time (4Q + OT): Nerves are real and they make a statistical impact.
