Cody Parkey: Misses first kick

Parkey was successful on his lone field-goal attempt and made four of five extra-point kicks in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals.

Analysis: Parkey rebounded from a one-point effort last week to record seven points in the win. The extra-point miss, his first missed kick of any kind this season, came on the final score of the game with 15 seconds remaining. It gave the Bengals a slight window to kick a game-tying field goal instead of needing to go the length of the field, but the Browns strategically managed the clock and the kickoff to leave Cincinnati no option but a Hail-Mary pass. Week 8 brings a potentially lucrative matchup against the Radiers, who rank 31st with 32.8 points allowed.

Cody Parkey: Single point in loss

Parkey made his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 38-7 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: Parkey's leg was not needed as Pittsburgh kept the Browns' offense in check. Down multiple scores early, Cleveland was not in a position to settle for field goals, nor were they ever in position to even decide about going for three points. This was the first time in four games that Parkey has not produced double-digit points. He'll look to bounce back Week 7 against the 1-4-1 Bengals.

Cody Parkey: Another double-digit week

Parkey successfully converted three of three field-goal attempts and three of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 32-23 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Parkey has stabilized the Browns' placekicking since his arrival in Week 2. He has yet to miss a kick and recorded his third straight game of double-digit point production. He's scored 10, 11 and 12 points the last three weeks. Sunday's win was the fourth straight for the Browns, who have scored more than 30 points in each of the four games and averaged 37.5 during the winning streak.

Cody Parkey: No misses again

Parkey converted two of two field-goal attempts and made all five extra-point kicks in Sunday's 49-38 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Parkey, who scored 10 points in Week 3, produced his second consecutive double-digit scoring effort. He's solidified the kicking game since taking over for Austin Seibert following a Week 1 loss. Parkey's made 14-of-14 extra-point attempts and converted all four field-goal kicks. He's helped by the Browns' offense which ranks fourth in scoring at 31 points per game.

Cody Parkey: Records 10 points in win

Parkey successfully converted two of two field-goal attempts and all four extra-point kicks in Sunday's 34-20 win over Washington in Week 3.

Analysis: Parkey has not missed a kick since taking over for Austin Seibert, converting all 11 kicks. He also produced touchbacks on all six kickoffs, preventing any returns, which have been a problem area for the Browns in 2020.

Cody Parkey: No misses

Parkey did not attempt a field goal and was successful on five of five extra-point kicks in Thursday's 35-30 win over the Bengals in Week 2.

Analysis: Parkey was the Browns' second kicker in as many weeks, after the team released Austin Seibert following his two misses in the season-opening loss to the Ravens. Parkey has a career 84-percent success rate on field goals.

Cody Parkey: Signs in Cleveland

Parkey inked a contract with the Browns on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Austin Seibert missed a 41-yard field goal and an extra point in Sunday's blowout loss to the Ravens, and it looks like the team could quickly move on from the 2019 fifth-round pick. Parkey was already on the Browns' practice squad, and there's a good chance he'll start Thursday night against the Bengals. The 28-year-old kicker only played three games last year but hit all three field-goal attempts -- all from beyond 40 yards -- and five of six extra points.

Cody Parkey: Returns to Cleveland

Parkey agreed to join Cleveland's practice squad, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Parkey was cut by the Browns on Thursday, as the team was satisfied with their starting kicker in Austin Seibert. Should Siebert start to struggle or the team elect to change their kicking depth, Parkey could be the first number called for the starting role with familiarity in the organization.

Cody Parkey: Visits Browns

Parkey visited the Browns on Thursday, Albert Breer of The MMBQ reports.

Analysis: Parkey hasn't garnered much interest since being waived by the Titans last November. However, a visit most likely means the Browns are not currently satisfied with their option at kicker, Austin Seibert.

Cody Parkey: No opportunities in debut

Parkey did not attempt a field goal or extra point during Sunday's 16-0 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: The Titans' offense was shut out in Parkey's team debut. An early deficit kept Tennessee chasing touchdowns all game, eliminating any chance for the 27-year-old to put his leg to the test. Parkey is not an intriguing fantasy option heading into a Week 7 contest against the Chargers.

Cody Parkey: Deal with Tennessee official

The Titans signed Parkey to a contract Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Parkey's last NFL stint with the Bears came to a tumultuous end last spring, but the 27-year-old will get a second chance at a kicking job in Tennessee, where he'll replace Cairo Santos. Over parts of five NFL seasons spent with Philadelphia, Cleveland, Miami and Chicago, Parkey has converted 83.9 percent of his field-goal tries and 95.5 percent of his extra-point attempts.

Cody Parkey: To sign with Tennessee

Parkey is expected to sign a contract with the Titans, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Analysis: Parkey is in line to replace Cairo Santos, who the Titans cut Monday, on the active roster. If Parkey indeed lands in Tennessee this week, he'll serve as the team's interim kicker at least until Week 8, when Ryan Succop (knee) is eligible to return to the field.

Cody Parkey: Will be released

The Bears will let Parkey go when the 2019 league year begins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Parkey will make $3.5 million guaranteed on his 2019 contract despite his release, which was mutually welcomed following his miss in the playoffs that cost the Bears a chance at the NFC Championship Game. He should find plenty of suitors for his services in 2019

Cody Parkey: Misses game-winning kick

Parkey connected on three of four field-goal attempts Sunday in the Bears' 16-15 loss to the Eagles in the wild-card round.

Analysis: Parkey's kicks from 36 and 29 yards out in the second quarter gave Chicago its first points of the game before he added to that total with a 34-yard chip shot with 14:13 left in the fourth quarter. After the Eagles took the lead with a touchdown with less than a minute remaining, the Chicago offense did its job to set Parkey up for a 43-yard attempt with seconds left on the clock. The 26-year-old connected on what ultimately proved to be a warmup attempt when Eagles coach Doug Pederson called a timeout to "ice" the kicker, but Parkey was unable to convert on the subsequent try. Eagles defensive tackle Treyvon Hester was able to get a finger on Parkey's kick to knock it just off course, as the ball caromed off the left upright and crossbar before falling short. It's a devastating end to a frustrating campaign for Parkey, who will surely face competition for his job in 2019 after missing seven field goals and three extra points during the regular season.

Cody Parkey: Four points in season finale

Parkey converted a field goal and extra point in Chicago's Week 17 win to end the season with 111 points.

Analysis: Parkey missed an extra-point attempt, continuing his inconsistent accuracy over the second half of the season. Although he made just 76.7 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2018, he's signed through 2021, so he's a good bet to be the Bears' starting kicker next season.

December 31, 2018 5:59 AM EST

Cody Parkey: Disappointing in victory

Parkey missed his only field-goal attempt while making a pair of extra points in Chicago's Week 16 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Parkey has missed six field-goal attempts over his last 11 games, and he's been held to one or fewer field goals on eight occasions this season. Not only has he been an erratic kicker, but he's had significant weekly downside, making him a tough player to use in what could be a low scoring game against the Vikings in Week 17.

December 23, 2018 8:25 PM EST

Cody Parkey: Pefect in limited work

Parkey connected on his only field-goal attempt while adding three extra points in Chicago's Week 15 victory over the Packers.

Analysis: Parkey's field goal was a 24-yard chip shot, giving him six points on the day. He's only had more than two field goals in a game once over his last 11 games, making him a low-ceiling lineup option.

December 16, 2018 4:13 PM EST

Cody Parkey: Connects on pair of field goals

Parkey knocked down two-of-three field-goal attempts while adding an extra point in Chicago's Week 13 victory over the Rams.

Analysis: The missed field goal was Parkey's first in four games, and kept him from reaching double-digit scoring. He's averaging six points over his last five games, making him a below average fantasy option.

December 10, 2018 4:42 AM EST

Cody Parkey: Nine points in Week 13

Parkey connected on a pair of field goals along with three extra points in Chicago's 30-27 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Parkey knocked down short field goals of 21 and 36 yards, and he's now been perfect over the last three weeks after having some accuracy issues earlier in the season. He's averaging six points over the last four games, and his lack of consistent upside makes him an uninspiring fantasy option.

December 3, 2018 4:20 AM EST

Cody Parkey: Tallies five points

Parkey kicked a field goal while adding a pair of extra points in the Bears' 23-16 win over the Lions.

Analysis: For the second week in a row, Chicago opted to go for a two-point conversion early, and that's an obvious concern for a fantasy kicker who's been a borderline starting option all season. Although he's had four double-digit scoring performances this year, he's scored five or fewer points in four of his last seven games, making him a difficult player to trust in fantasy lineups.
