Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 9

Matt Prater on bye means there's a new name atop Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 9 kicker rankings. Stephen Gostkowski ascends to the No. 1 position this week, as he leads the NFL with 20 made field goals, but he's not the only AFC East kicker having a productive season. The Jets' Nick Folk is a perfect 19-of-19 on field goal tries this season, one of only four kickers in the entire league with 10 or more attempts who have yet to miss.

There's a strong chance that Folk's services will be needed Sunday at home against New Orleans. Not only are the Saints are giving up less than 21 points per game on the road, the Jets' offense has struggled in recent weeks to get the ball into the end zone. Folk and his counterpart, the Saints' Garrett Hartley, are both solid top-10 options this week.

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.
