Meaning 3 Kicker
Definition

K is an abbreviation for kicker in football and fantasy football (FFB). It refers to the position responsible for kicking field goals for 3 points and kicking off to the other team after scoring.

In FFB, a kicker can score points for a team by making field goals. In some FFLs they get more points the farther the field goal is too. The K position is used in most FFB formats although some leagues don't include the lineup because of the perceived boringness of the position. Some famous NFL kickers include Adam Vinatieri, Mark Moseley, Jason Elam, Gary Anderson, Matt Stover, and Morten Andersen.

Example
"I can't believe their K missed the field goal to win the game. It was only 27 yards away!"
