Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 7

Stephen Gostkowski leads the NFL with 16 made field goals

Matt Prater is No. 1 on Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings for Week 7, but no one has made more field goals this season than Stephen Gostkowski. This duo is not only 1-2 in our rankings, but also in fantasy points this season. The interesting thing is that they have done this in different ways. Prater leads all kickers thanks to his league-high 34 PATs kicking for the Broncos' prolific offense. Gostkowski, on the other hand, is 16-of-17 on field goal attempts, as the Patriots haven't scored as many touchdowns this season compared to last. Regardless, you can't go wrong with either of these as your fantasy kicker on a week in, week out basis.

Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
