Dustin Hopkins: Puts forth another solid season

Hopkins converted 25 of 30 field-goal attempts (83.3 percent) and 21 of 22 PATs (95.5 percent) in 2019.

Analysis: The 29-year-old kicker played all 16 games for a second year in a row, and he's now gone five consecutive season converting at least 81 percent of his FGAs. Hopkins isn't among the league's elite at his position, but he's probably good enough to preclude serious competition for 2020, the final season of his three-year, $7.45 million contract. It remains to be seen if the new front office in Washington is interested in discussing an extension.

Dustin Hopkins: Attempts zero field goals

Hopkins converted all five extra-points and did not attempt a field goal during Sunday's 41-35, overtime loss to the Giants.

Analysis: The 29-year-old didn't attempt a field goal for the third time this season, despite the Redskins posting their highest point total of the year. The 29-year-old is 22-for-27 on field goals and 20-for-21 through 15 games this season.

Dustin Hopkins: Connects on five kicks

Hopkins made two field goals and three extra points in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Hopkins set a season high when he connected from 53 yards in the fourth quarter, and he drilled a 43-yarder on the next drive. The 29-year-old kicker is enjoying a decent season, as he's made 22 of 27 kicks (81 percent). The Redskins host the Giants in Week 16.

Dustin Hopkins: Misses extra point

Hopkins made his lone field-goal attempt but missed an extra-point attempt during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: The extra-point ended up costing Hopkins two points, since it forced the Redskins into a failed two-point conversion on their second touchdown. The 29-year-old was able to salvage some value with a 52-yard field goal, which is his first make from 50-plus yards this season. Hopkins had multiple field-goal attempts in each of the previous five games, but the inconsistent Washington offense makes him a risky fantasy option.

Dustin Hopkins: Makes three field goals

Hopkins converted three of four field-goal attempts and both extra-point attempts during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Hopkins had a 49-yard field goal blocked heading into halftime, but he still made attempts from 25, 36 and 42 yards. The 29-year-old has three-plus field-goal attempts in four of the last five games, as the Redskins continue to struggle finishing drives. Hopkins is 19-for-24 on field goals and has yet to miss an extra point on 12 tries.

Dustin Hopkins: Perfect on five kicks

Hopkins made all four field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point attempt during Sunday's 19-16 win over the Lions.

Analysis: Washington's inability to finish drives provided Hopkins with a bevy of opportunities as he converted field goals from 28, 37, 39 and 42 yards, including the game-winning shot with 16 seconds remaining. The Redskins' inconsistent offense makes the 29-year-old a risky fantasy option, but he's nonetheless 11-for-12 on field goals over the last four games. Astoundingly, Sunday's PAT was Hopkins' first since Week 6.

Dustin Hopkins: Converts one of two FGs

Hopkins made one of two field-goal attempts during Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Hopkins had both attempts come during the second quarter, but he hit the right upright on the second attempt and didn't have another chance the rest of the game. The Redskins attempted two-point conversions on both their fourth-quarter touchdowns. Hopkins is 12-for-16 on field goals and 9-for-9 on extra points this season and is a risky fantasy option due to the struggling offense.

November 18, 2019 1:20 PM EST

Dustin Hopkins: One miss in win

Hopkins made one of two field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try during Sunday's 17-16 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: Hopkins missed his second field-goal try of the year during the Week 6 win, though he remains perfect in extra-point scenarios. Washington's offense has struggled mightily in recent weeks, and Hopkins is facing a trio of unfavorable upcoming matchups against the 49ers, the Vikings and the Bills.

Dustin Hopkins: Makes extra point in loss

Hopkins converted his sole extra-point try during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Hopkins didn't attempt a single field goal during Sunday's blowout loss. The veteran kicker's accuracy has been reliable thus far through five contests, but he'll remain off the fantasy radar until such time as Washington's offense is able to give him opportunities on a more reliable basis.

Dustin Hopkins: Keeps team from shutout

Hopkins converted his only field-goal attempt in Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Hopkins' 21-yard chip shot in the second quarter was the Redskins' only points of the afternoon. He's been perfect on all six extra-point attempts this year, and he's connected on four of five field-goal tries, missing once from 43 yards in Week 3. It could be another uneventful game in Week 5 versus the Patriots' strong defense.

Dustin Hopkins: Only three points

Hopkins made only one of his two field-goal tries and did not attempt an extra point in Monday night's 31-15 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Hopkins converted from 35 yards as the first-half clock expired, but that only came after he missed wide left from 43 yards earlier in the quarter. Then, with the Redskins seeking to make up points, they opted for two-point conversions following both of their second-half touchdowns, restricting Hopkins' involvement. Through three games, the veteran now boasts just 15 points.

September 24, 2019 4:56 PM EST

Dustin Hopkins: Remains perfect

Hopkins converted all three extra points in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Hopkins now has made both field-goal attempts and all six extra-point tries this season. The Redskins will host the Bears, who have allowed three field goals and 24 points over the first two games, in Week 3.

September 16, 2019 12:10 PM EST

Dustin Hopkins: Converts all five kicks

Hopkins made both field-goal attempts and all three extra-point attempts in Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Hopkins had all but one extra-point in the first half as the Redskins jumped out to a 20-7 lead, but the offense slowed down significantly after halftime. The 28-year-old made the field goals from 41 and 48 yards after going 10-for-12 on 40-49-yard attempts in 2018. Next week the Redskins face a Cowboys defense that allowed 17 points to the Giants in Week 1.

Dustin Hopkins: Not facing competition

Hopkins is locked in as Washington's kicker, according to the team's official website.

Analysis: Washington didn't even bother adding another kicker to the 90-man offseason roster. Hopkins has made just nine of 18 kicks from 50-plus yards through four NFL seasons, but he's been excellent on shorter field-goal attempts, converting 28 of 34 (82.4 percent) from 40-49 yards and 62 of 64 (96.9 percent) inside of 40. There are at least 20 superior options for fantasy purposes, as the Washington offense isn't likely to provide a plethora of kicking opportunities.

Dustin Hopkins: No attempts in season finale

Hopkins did attempt a field goal during Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Hopkins made 90 percent of field goals he attempted this season (26-for-29) and converted 95.2 percent of extra-point tries (25-for-26). Despite his strong accuracy, Hopkins' low volume limited his fantasy upside all throughout the 2018 season. With two years remaining on his contract, Hopkins will return as Washington's starting kicker in 2019.

January 4, 2019 2:34 PM EST

Dustin Hopkins: Makes three field goals

Hopkins made all three of his field-goal attempts and an extra point in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Hopkins scored 10 points for the second week in a row, hitting on three field goals in a game for the fifth time this season. He's hitting on an impressive 90 percent of his field goals this season (26-for-29). He'll look to maintain the quality play into Washington's season finale against the Eagles in Week 17.

December 24, 2018 7:16 AM EST

Dustin Hopkins: Tallies 10 points

Hopkins made three field goals and an extra point during Sunday's 16-13 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: After putting up a goose egg in Week 14, Hopkins nailed three field goals for the fourth time this season. It still remains hard to rely on Hopkins for the rest of year, however, as the absence of Alex Smith under center has stalled Washington's offense.

December 17, 2018 6:37 PM EST

Dustin Hopkins: Ghost-like outing in blowout

Hopkins finished Sunday's game against the Giants without any kicking attempts.

Analysis: It was a rough day for Hopkins' owners as he went without a stat line for the first time all season. The 27-year-old is in the midst of a career season highlighted by a career-best field goal conversion rate (87 percent). Without Alex Smith, Washington's offense has endured a noticeable drop off which apparently has trickled down to affect Hopkins.

December 10, 2018 7:05 PM EST

Dustin Hopkins: Perfect Monday

Hopkins made both of his field-goal attempts and converted on his only extra-point try in Monday's loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Hopkins performed better than expected in a game that saw backup quarterback Colt McCoy leave the game with a lower leg injury. McCoy was replaced by third-string Mark Sanchez and the offense seemed to stall. Washington is already without quarterback Alex Smith (lower leg) for the season, so Hopkins will be difficult to trust for the remainder of the season.

December 4, 2018 9:36 AM EST

Dustin Hopkins: Misses one extra point

Hopkins made his only field-goal attempt and converted two of three extra-point tries during Thursday's 31-21 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Hopkins missed his first extra point of the season Thanksgiving Day. The 28-year-old's fantasy stock took a significant hit after quarterback Alex Smith (lower leg) was lost for the season Week 11, and he'll be difficult to trust down the stretch. Hopkins has made only one field goal attempt in each of his last two games.
