Jets K Nick Folk is 23-of-23 on field goals this season.
That includes an 11-of-11 mark from 40-49 yards and three straight games with at least three makes. He leads the NFL in field goals made. The piping-hot Folk will be a top-10 fantasy kicking option when the Jets come out of their bye at Buffalo in Week 10.

Jets K Nick Folk has six game-winning field goals since 2010.
Folk's latest triumph was a 43-yarder as time expired to beat the Falcons Monday night. He also beat the Bucs in Week 1 with a 48-yard boot. Folk is 11-of-11 on the year, including a 6-of-6 mark from 40-plus. Still, fantasy owners should be looking for kickers that play in more consistent offenses. The Jets have been held to 20 points or less in four of their five games.

Special teams coach Mike Westhoff suggested the Jets kicking job is no longer Nick Folk's to lose.
Westhoff concedes that Folk had the edge entering last summer's competition with Nick Novak, but that won't be the case with Josh Brown this time around. Westhoff was disappointed that the position wasn't upgraded during the draft, as the Jets were believed to be interested in Vikings sixth-rounder Blair Walsh.

The Jets will release Nick Novak, meaning Nick Folk has won the kicking job.
Folk has made just 48-of-67 (71.6 percent) of his field goals over the last two seasons, but hangs on to the job. We'd rather have a more reliable kicker in a more explosive offense for our fantasy team.

Jets agreed to terms with K Nick Folk.
Folk's hold on the Jets' kicking job seemed tenuous from offseason practices through the end of last season, but he did connect on 30 field goals, good for fourth in the league. Perhaps more importantly, Folk drilled all 10 eight of his post-season field goal attempts.

The New York Post expects the Jets to re-sign free agent K Nick Folk.
The Jets signed Nick Novak before the lockout, but unless they decide to go after somebody like free agent David Akers, Folk will likely again be the man for Gang Green. Folk has a huge leg, but has averaged over 10 field-goal misses per season the past three years.
