RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Folk proved to be a mediocre fantasy commodity last season, amassing a mere 93 points behind a comically-bad Jets offense and connecting on only 77.8 percent of the limited field-goal opportunities he did garner, the fourth straight season in which he's fallen below the 80-percent threshold. With little in the way of training camp competition, Folk will once again be kicking in a less-than-ideal climate for the majority of his games, supporting an offense that may be even more unsettled than last season's version.

2012

Folk was 19-for-25 in field goals last season. The Jets brought in Josh Brown to compete with him for the starting kicker job.

2011

Folk totaled 127 points last season, which likely will make him of the more overvalued fantasy kickers this year. Folk finished fifth in the league in kicker scoring thanks to volume, not accuracy. He missed nine field goals last season, nearly losing his job. His 39 field-goal attempts ranked third in the NFL, supported by a league-high 27 inside 40 yards. It's doubtful Folk will get that kind of advantage this season. The Jets ranked 28th in red-zone touchdown efficiency last year, finding the end zone on just 44.3 percent of those possessions. If the Jets improve merely to the league average of 53 percent – a reasonable expectation under third-year quarterback Mark Sanchez – Folk could lose five or six chip-shot attempts. Accuracy has always been a major issue with Folk as he has made just eight of his last 18 attempts between 40-49 yards. Unless his accuracy dramatically improves, Folk is likely facing a drop in production in 2011, and his job could be at risk.

2010

Folk comes to the Jets after Jay Feely left for Arizona. Folk struggled last season with the Cowboys and was released before the season was out. Folks’s problems were related to his accuracy from beyond 40 yards. In his first two seasons with the Cowboys, Folk was 17-of-18 from 40-49 yards. Last season he was just 5-of-12. The Jets gave Feely 36 field-goal attempts (second in the league) and 32 PATs last season. If the Jets improve their red-zone efficiency in Mark Sanchez’s second year as quarterback, it’ll mean fewer field goals and more extra points for Folk. But that’s the least of Folk’s concern. He needs to regain the accuracy from his first two years in the league when he kicked 86.8 percent. He also has one of the toughest slates of bad-weather December road games — at New England, Pittsburgh and Chicago.

2009

Folk was perhaps the most disappointing fantasy kicker last season, though through no fault of his own. Folk missed only two kicks all year, but the Cowboys scored 11 fewer touchdowns than in his rookie season and offered him just 22 field-goal attempts, a league low among full-time kickers. The Cowboys had just 44 red-zone possessions last season (26th in the league), which helps explain why Folk had 11 fewer attempts from 20-29 yards than in 2007 when the Cowboys made 56 trips into the red zone (4th). Terrell Owens has gone to Buffalo, which might help in the locker room, but leaves the offense weaker at wide receiver. Injuries, though, might be a bigger factor, specifically, keeping Tony Romo healthy for a full 16 games. Folk underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage in his hip, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

2008

Our top pick could easily be ranked seventh or eighth because the top tier is that close. As a rookie, Folk ranked fourth in the league in kicker scoring (131 points) and made 26 field goals (missing two from less than 30 yards). Folk has a strong leg, he's easily capable of improving on his 2-of-5 performance from beyond 50 yards and he kicks for one of the NFL's best offenses. Plus, the Cowboys have one of the better defenses in the league as well. Folk has two potential bad weather road games in December, at Philadelphia and at Pittsburgh.

2007

6th round pick has a strong but somewhat inaccurate leg and will try to unseat Martin Gramatica for the starting placekicking job.
