Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 8

Steven Hauschka

Matt Prater has a stranglehold on the top spot on Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 8 kicker rankings, but Steven Hauschka is not too far behind him in the points department. Prater has made a healthy living kicking for Denver's prolific offense, but Hauschka is making the most of his opportunities with the Seahawks. He has connected on 16 field goals this season (Stephen Gostkowski leads the NFL with 18), including an impressive 8-of-9 from 40 yards and beyond. Seattle is in St. Louis on Monday night and with a ball-hawking defense like the Seahawks going up against Rams backup quarterback Kellen Clemens, Hauschka's leg could get a decent workout.

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.
