Fantasy Football 2014 Kicker Rankings: Week 4

Adam Vinatieri

Stephen Gostkowski remains atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 4, but he currently is sixth in fantasy points at the position. The leading scorer is Philadelphia's Cody Parkey, a rookie who wasn't drafted and actually started out in Indianapolis' camp before being traded to the Eagles. He beat out Alex Henery for the starting job and has connected on eight of his first nine field goal attempts, including two of 50 yards or longer. To Gostkowski's credit, he has yet to miss a field goal, hitting all eight of his through three games, half of them coming from between 40-49 yards out. And then there's reliable Adam Vinatieri, who has connected on all 17 of his kicks (11 PATs, 6 FGs). This is no small (ahem) feat for a guy who will turn 42 in December and is in his 19th NFL season, but his consistency and longevity are two big reasons why he currently sits fifth all-time in career points with 2,035.

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.
