Dropkicks are just not used nearly as often as field goals are. In fact, the are almost never used. Field goals are much easier to kick, are much more accurate and there are virtually no players (but there there ARE some) who can properly perform an accurate dropkick. The dropkick is still legal and counts the same number of points as a field goal does.
