I really don't think it matters much.  Find a team that plays a decent defense each week(hold to FGs) or a shoot out type game.  It doesn't matter how good a kicker is if he doesn't get opportunity. 

Also, we are getting to the time of year that weather will really affect kickers.  I usually stream kickers weekly this time of the year to play those kicking in a dome or down south.
