Pros: The former Pro Bowler made 86.8 percent of his field goals (46-for-53) over his first two NFL seasons. He has been working on his body alignment for kicking field goals. Folk is entering the season as the starter. The Jets' offense welcomes ball control, meaning Folk should see ample chances for points one way or another.

Cons: Folk's third season was a disaster. He made just 64.3 percent of his three-pointers and was cut by the Dallas Cowboys. Can he regain confidence after his meltdown? Will he be thinking about his new kicking approach too much? 

Fantasy tip: You should leave Folk for the post-draft free-agent pool. Wait to see if he cures his yips; this offense could help him if so.
