Ryan Longwell or Adam Vinatieri?

Both Longwell and Vinatieri are available on the waiver wire in my league. Who do you guys recommend that i pick up and why? My current kicker is Jay Feely. Scoring for kickers in my league is 1pt for PAT Made, 3pts for 0-49, and 5pts for 50+.

All input is appreciated.

I'm dropping Longwell after the Detroit game -- strongly tempted to do so before. I'd say that's a pretty easy choice though Vinatieri's in the top-ten for the season and he's only made 2 FGs, the rest are PATs. He'll have more opportunities for field goals and will keep racking up the PATs. Longwell's a great kicker but that offense is just too pathetic to support consistent production from him.

I kinda wanna lean towards Longwell now that Minnesota has Vincent Jackson. But i'm not sure. I wouldn't mind some more opinions people :).

Always looking to learn more about the game. Always.

Actually didn't realise that was a done deal, might make me reconsider. Been a disappointment so far.
