    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.

    Ask the Geeks – Week 8 

    Atg ButtonHere are our responses to the first couple of questions for the week. Remember, you can always ask us questions by clicking the Ask the Geeks logo on the left sidebar (or this link).

    Alan asks: Receiving Steve Slaton and Anquan Boldin for Bernard Berrian and Ryan Grant. Yay or nay, fantasy geeks.

    Brandon’s take: Alan, at first glance, it appears you would be getting the better of this trade. In terms of fantasy point average per game, right now Steve Slaton (11*) and Anquan Boldin (16.6) are a good deal ahead of Ryan Grant (7.5) and Bernard Berrian (11.6). However, looking at their schedules for the remainder of the season, Grant and Berrian actually have the easier path to the playoffs. Their schedules, coupled with A) the fear that Steve Slaton could hit the infamous “rookie wall”, B) the question of how effective Boldin will be when coming back from his pretty serious injury a couple weeks ago, and C) the fact that Cardinals wide receiver Steve Breaston has played well in relief of Boldin, leads me to recommend you do NOT make the trade. Last season Ryan Grant came on strong towards the middle of the season and I expect the same to happen this year. I also think the Frerotte-to-Berrian connection in Minnesota should hold up for the rest of the season and pay you solid dividends. Good luck…hopefully this helps!
