Is there a way in SQL Server to Rank() with no duplicate numbers?

Is there a way in SQL Server to Rank() with no duplicate numbers?

Currently when I attempt to rank a column Rank() will repeat the rank number for any number it encounters that is the same.

I would like a function to rank from highest to lowest value sequentially.

Then you need to figure out how to break ties and incorporate that into the PARTITION BY clause.
Otherwise ROW_NUMBER() should work.
