Makes all three FG attempts

Joseph went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-3 on point-after tries during Sunday's 29-13 win over Chicago.

Analysis: Joseph made field goals from 28, 50 and 41 yards which should be a confidence booster after missing attempts from 46 and 50 yards in last week's blowout loss at Green Bay.

Struggles versus Packers

Joseph went 1-for-3 on field-goal attempts while making both of his PAT tries in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Joseph made an easy 21-yard field goal early in the first quarter before missing attempts from 46 yards and 50 yards respectively later in the first half. The missed field goals were his first since Week 8, entering Sunday's contest having gone 13-for-13 over the last eight games, including a 61-yard game winner in Week 16 against the Giants. Joseph has had an up-and-down season, converting 23 out of 30 field-goal tries while also missing five extra-point attempts. The kicker will look to get back on track in the Vikings' regular season finale in Week 18 as the team travels to face the Bears.

Perfect in win

Joseph converted on both field-goal attempts and all three point-after tries during Saturday's 27-24 victory over the Giants.

Analysis: Joseph capped off the first scoring drive of the game with an extra-point in the first quarter and extended the Vikings' lead to 10-0 in the second quarter with a 40-yard field goal. He added two more PATs before connecting on a game-winning 61-yard field goal as time expired in regulation. The 61-yard make was Joseph's career long, and he's now made back-to-back 50-yard tries after missing five straight from that distance.

Makes game-winning kick

Joseph made his only field-goal attempt and all four of his extra-point tries in Week 15's 39-36 overtime win over the Colts.

Another perfect outing

Joseph made his only field-goal attempt and both extra-point tries during Sunday's 34-23 loss to Detroit.

Analysis: Joseph made his only field-goal attempt, a 41-yarder early in the fourth quarter, to cut Minnesota's deficit to 28-16. After starting the campaign 9-for-14, the veteran kicker has connected on 10 straight field goals, including three from beyond 40 yards.

Dec 12, 2022 11:02 AM EST

Perfect day

Joseph connected on both of his field-goal attempts, and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Joseph opened the game's scoring with a 51-yard field in the first quarter, while also delivering from 41 yards out late in the second quarter. The 28-year-old has now been successful on 78 percent of his FGA's on the year, while hitting 84 percent of extra-point attempts. He'll work to be perfect again Week 14 against the Lions.

Scores nine points

Joseph made both of his field-goal attempts but missed one of his four extra-point tries in Week 12's 33-26 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Joseph converted field goals from 30 and 36 yards. However, his missed PAT brought his tally up to five such misses this season and 10 missed kicks overall. Through 11 games, his 72 points place outside the top 15 among kickers league-wide.

Supplies only points in loss

Joseph made his only field-goal attempt in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Joseph made a chip-shot 25-yard field goal in the first quarter, accounting for all the offense in the contest for the Vikings. The kicker has now gone 5-for-5 on field-goal attempts over the last three games, though all of them have been from 39 yards or shorter. Joseph will look to be more involved when the Vikings face the Patriots on Thanksgiving Day in Week 12.

Nov 21, 2022 9:12 AM EST

Makes two field goals in win

Joseph converted both of his field-goal attempts while going three-for-four on extra point tries in Sunday's 33-30 overtime win over the Bills.

Analysis: Joseph made a 27 yard field goal in the second quarter before later adding the game-winning 33 yard try in overtime. The kicker has now gone 13-for-18 on field goals this season, though he is 1-for-6 from 50 plus yards. The missed PAT was his fourth of the year, matching the most he's had in any season over his four year career.

Nov 14, 2022 9:49 AM EST

Perfect in win Sunday

Joseph made both of his field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Commanders.

Analysis: Joseph converted two short field-goals from 25 and 28 yards out during the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup against Washington. While Minnesota retains their high-powered offense, the 28-year-old should continue seeing plenty of kicking opportunities down the road.

Misses two kicks against Arizona

Joseph missed his lone field-goal attempt while making four of five extra-point tries during the Vikings' 34-26 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Analysis: Although the Vikings have had a strong start to the season, Joseph has been inconsistent in recent weeks, as he's missed at least one kick in each of the last five games. His missed field-goal attempt Sunday was a 56-yard attempt that was blocked just before halftime, but he also missed an extra-point try in the fourth quarter that would have put Minnesota up by two possessions. Over the last five games, Joseph has converted six of 11 field-goal attempts while making 13 of 16 extra-point tries.

Makes only field-goal in Week 6

Joseph made his only field-goal attempt while going 1-for-2 on extra-point tries.

Analysis: Joseph's field-goal was good from 34 yards as the the first half came to an end Sunday, getting the kicker back on track after he went 0-for-2 on field-goals in Week 5. The kicker did miss a PAT on Sunday, his second missed extra-point this season. Overall, Joseph has gone 9-for-13 on field-goals while making 12 out of 14 PATs through six games.

Oct 17, 2022 7:30 AM EST

Misses both field goals in Week 5

Joseph missed both of his field-goal attempts but converted all three extra-point tries during Sunday's 29-22 win over the Bears.

Analysis: Both of Joseph's misfires came from deep, as he sent the first attempt wide-right from 53 yards out right before the conclusion of the first half. The second attempt came about halfway through the third quarter, where the 28-year-old kicker's try from 51 yards was blocked. Joseph's next opportunity to get back on track comes Sunday in Miami.

Oct 10, 2022 8:22 AM EST

Busy day in win

Joseph converted all five of his field-goal attempts and went one-for-two on point-after tries during Sunday's 28-25 victory over the Saints.

Analysis: Joesph connected on field-goal attempts of 24, 28, 36 and 46 to give the Vikings a 19-14 lead with under five minutes left in the fourth quarter. However, the fourth-year kicker proceeded to miss his next kick, a PAT following a Justin Jefferson rushing touchdown, which allowed the Saints to tie the game at 25 with just under two minutes left. Minnesota countered by marching down the field on a six-play, 53-yard drive that set up Joseph for a game-winning 47-yard field goal. Joseph has missed three kicks over the past two games, but he's still a viable option thanks to Minnesota's potent offense.

Oct 3, 2022 10:12 AM EST

Misses both field goals in Week 3

Joseph missed both of his field-goal attempts while going 4-for-4 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-24 victory over the Lions.

Analysis: Joseph attempted two field goals from 56 yards in the contest, missing both of them. The 28-year-old has now gone 3-for-5 on field goals this season and 1-for-3 from 50 yards and longer. Joseph has yet to try a field goal from 30 to 49 yards this year, something that could change in Week 4 versus New Orleans.

Sep 26, 2022 9:30 AM EST

Only one point

Joseph did not attempt a field goal, but he made his only extra-point try in Monday night's 24-7 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Joseph did all that was required of him on a night that saw Minnesota's offense struggle to move the ball. Through two weeks, he now sports 12 points.

Sep 20, 2022 4:53 PM EST

Doesn't miss in season opener

Joseph made all three field-goal attempts and both point-after tries during Sunday's 23-7 victory over the Packers.

Analysis: Joseph made field goals from 28, 29 and 56 yards during the Vikings' blowout win over the Packers. The fifth-year kicker appeared in all 17 games for the Vikings last year and went 33-for-38 on field-goal attempts and 36-for-40 on extra-point tries. He figures to garner a similar workload in 2022, though Minnesota's new offensive scheme could increase Joseph's opportunities moving forward.

Standout effort in preseason finale

Joseph drilled field-goal attempts of 46 and 58 yards and converted his one extra-point try during the Vikings' 23-13 preseason loss to the Broncos on Saturday night.

Analysis: The four-year pro couldn't have asked for a better tune-up for the regular season, particularly boosting his confidence with his 58-yard conversion on the first play of the fourth quarter. The long-distance success is nothing new for Joseph, who went 7-for-9 on attempts from 50 yards and beyond a season ago. The Florida Atlantic product's already solid fantasy value could get another boost this season if new head coach Kevin O'Connell's offense generates quick returns.

Aug 27, 2022 9:53 PM EST

Inks tender with Vikings

Joseph signed his one-year contract tender with Minnesota on Monday, his agent Brett Tessler reports.

Analysis: Joseph was solid in 2021, when he converted a career-high 87 percent of his field-goal attempts across 17 games with the Vikings. The 27-year-old is currently the only kicker on Minnesota's roster, and he can be considered the clear favorite to begin the 2022 season as the starter, though another option could realistically be added at the position when offseason workouts ramp up.

Apr 11, 2022 8:21 AM EST

Being tendered by Vikings

Minnesota will tender Joseph at the right of first refusal number of $2.4 million, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: The Vikings will have the right to match any offer made to Joseph by another team. The 27-year-old is coming off a career year, having converted 33 of 38 field-goal attempts and 36 of 40 field-goal tries across 17 games last season. He was successful on seven of nine attempts from 50-plus yards out.
