10. Nick Folk, New York Jets

If you’re looking for a deep-sleeper pick, Folk might be your guy. He was tied for fourth last year in field goal fantasy points (117) and tied for 11th in overall points, despite playing for a Jets offense that scored on only 29.6 percent of drives. Will the Jets be lighting up scoreboards in 2014? Probably not.

9. Dan Bailey, Dallas Cowboys

Bailey tied for the league lead in fantasy points from field goals of 50 to 59 yards (30) and tied for second in field goals made from 40-plus (16). So there are no questions about Bailey’s leg strength and accuracy on long boots.

8. Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings aren’t exactly the 2013 Broncos, but they did score touchdowns on 21 percent of drives last season. That gave Walsh ample opportunity for PATs, with 43. The problem was that he ranked near the bottom on long-distance field goals. He converted only seven of 11 boots of 40-plus yards — including only two of five on kicks from 50-plus yards.
