[ON THE RISE] Hartley, who was suspended for the first four games of 2009 after testing positive for a banned substance and didn't take over as the kicker until Week 13, is on the verge of becoming a force. He possesses a strong leg and benefits from playing for the high-scoring Saints; now if he can just get Drew Brees to stall in the red zone once in a while, his field goal numbers will really soar.

The second-most accurate kicker (and third-highest point scorer) in 2009 was helped by an offense that ran more red-zone plays than any other team. The loss of third-down back Chester Taylor is likely to stunt some of those long Minnesota drives before the goal line, which could give Longwell even more field goal opportunities. Longwell's got years left on him, even at age 36.
