    Kicker rankings for 2009 

    Unless you feel you absolutely need a top ranked kicker, you should probably wait until one of the last couple rounds of your draft and take the best guy available. It’s usually easier to play the waiver wire from week-to-week to fill your kicker spot on your roster anyways, depending on the match-ups and weather report. Either way though, here’s the list. Make sure to check out our other cheat sheets here.

    1. Ryan Longwell, MIN – The Vikings will get into enemy territory a lot on the back of Adrian Peterson, but if Purple Jesus can’t punch it in, Longwell will be there to clean up the mess.
    2. David Akers, PHI
    3. Stephen Gostkowski, NE – He was the top kicker last year, but with Brady back, I envision more PAT’s and less FG’s.
    4. Jason Elam, ATL
    5. Nate Kaeding, SD
    6. Robbie Gould, CHI – Cutler should get them into field goal range more often than Orton did.
    7. Mason Crosby, GB
    8. Rob Bironas, TEN
    9. Nick Folk, DAL
    10. Rian Lindell, BUF – Hopefully the addition of T.O. will mean more trips into the red-zone and more opportunities for Lindell.

    Team defense rankings for 2009 

    Here are the team defense rankings for 2009. There are three basic categories for defenses, 1) those that are worth drafting, 2) defenses that are good if you need/want two so you can switch from week to week, and 3) defensive units that are only useful for spot-starts here and there throughout the season. Please note that these rankings are based primarily on just the defense aspect of a team and not as much for special teams. If your league rewards you for kick returns, your rankings may differ slightly (here’s a list of the top kick returners in the league.)

    Draftable

  • 1. Pittsburgh Steelers – They were dominant last year and it appears they’ll be just as good this season.
  • 2. Minnesota Vikings – Solid defense that stops the run and will score some touchdowns off turnovers.
  • 3. New York Giants – Osi Umenyiora returning from injury should improve the pass rush even more, forcing turnovers.
  • 4. Baltimore Ravens – They lost their coordinator in the off-season, but they’re still loaded with big names such as Lewis, Suggs and Reed.
  • 5. New York Jets – They got coach Rex Ryan from Baltimore, along with Bart Scott, plus Lito Sheppard adds some veteran experience.
  • 6. Dallas Cowboys – They led the league in sacks last year and played much better towards the end. Let’s see if it continues into this season.
  • 7. Philadelphia Eagles
  • 8. Tennessee Titans – The Titans defense has been dominant in the past, but they’ve lost Albert Haynesworth to Washington and their coordinator to the Lions. They still have a lot to work with though.
  • 9. Chicago Bears – They’re not quite as dominant as they’ve been in the past, but they still force a lot of turnovers.
  • 10. New England Patriots – They go into the season looking very healthy at this point, while young players Jerod Mayo and Brandon Meriweather have another year of playing under their belt. The high-powered offense will force opposing teams to abandon the run early and should get a lot of turnovers.

      I don’t agree with the Chargers being so low in your rankings. They were at a loss of their leading defensive player last year and with the newly picked up Larry English, I see the Chargers being right back up there in the top.

        We’ll see, who knows that it wasn’t all the performance enhancing drugs that made Shawne Merriman so lethal.
