Makes six kicks

Elliott made all five of his field-goal attempts as well as his only extra-point try in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Elliott converted from 32, 52, 39, 54 and 22 yards on his field goals. In 16 games this season, he made 20 of 23 field-goal attempts and 51 of 53 extra-point tries en route to 111 points, which ranked just inside the top 20 for kickers league-wide.

Good from 56 yards

Elliott converted his only field-goal attempt and his only extra point in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: In previous weeks, Elliott's fantasy value had been muted by the fact that the Eagles kept finding the end zone rather than stalling and attempting a kick. This time around, his value was muted by the fact that the Philadelphia offense had a rare off day. It wasn't all bad for the kicker, however, as he did set a season high by converting from 56 yards.

Makes two field goals

Elliott converted both of his field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point attempts in Saturday's 40-34 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Elliott was perfect Saturday, converting field goals from 47 and 25 yards out. The 27-year-old kicker has now made 84 percent of his field-goal attempts this season. Elliott will look to build upon his solid performance when the Eagles host the Saints in Week 17.

Misses from 38 yards

Elliott made both of his extra-point attempts but missed one of his two field goals in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Analysis: Elliott made a 32-yarder to open the scoring early in the second quarter, but he missed from 38 yards in the middle of the fourth, a kick which would have put the Eagles up by seven. The miss didn't end up mattering, as the Eagles scored a touchdown four minutes later to open up a two-score lead, but it was the latest episode in a surprisingly mediocre season for Elliott. He's tied for 32nd in the league with 12 made field goals, though he's at least somewhat made up for it by leading the league in extra points (45).

Perfect in busiest game of season

Elliott went 6-for-6 on extra points and 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts in Sunday's 48-22 victory over the Giants.

Analysis: Elliott's eight total kick attempts Sunday represent a new season high. As usual, the Eagles' prolific offense found the end zone often enough to deny a huge fantasy outburst for Elliott, but it was still a very productive day for the kicker. Elliott didn't even have to work too hard to put up his points, as his field-goal attempts came from 29 and 39 yards.

Makes five extra-point attempts

Elliott converted all five of his extra-point attempts but was not asked to kick a single field goal in Sunday's 35-10 win over the Titans.

Analysis: The Eagles latest win represented an even more extreme version of how they've gotten their points throughout the season, as the team continues to be so good at finding the end zone that they haven't needed Elliott to do all that much. No team has scored more touchdowns than Philadelphia's 44, but their 13 field-goal attempts trail every other team by at least five..

Dec 6, 2022 1:54 PM EST

Makes both field-goal attempts

Elliott converted both of his field-goal attempts and four of his five extra-point attempts in Sunday's 40-33 win over the Packers.

Analysis: Elliott is still yet to attempt more than two field goals in a game this season, but he matched his season high Sunday by making six total kicks. His second missed extra point of the year does stand out as a notable negative, but he also made his second kick of the season from beyond 50 yards, converting a 54-yarder late in the fourth quarter to stretch the Eagles' lead to 10.

Makes lone field-goal attempt

Elliott went 1-for-1 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 on extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Analysis: Elliott didn't have a particularly tough day, as his 22-yard field goal that put the Eagles on the board early in the second quarter came from inside extra-point range. Despite kicking for a team that ranks fourth in points per game, Elliott continues to have an underwhelming fantasy season. The Eagles have been so good at finding the end zone that they've rarely called on him, ranking second in touchdowns but last in field-goal attempts.

Nov 22, 2022 10:15 AM EST

Makes all kicks

Elliott did not attempt any field goals but made all three of his extra-point tries in Monday night's 32-21 loss to the Commanders.

Analysis: Elliott has been called on for merely eight field-goal attempts all season, restricting his output. Despite missing only three of 35 total kicks, his 44 points rank outside the top 25 players at his position.

Nov 15, 2022 1:38 PM EST

Misses lone field-goal attempt

Elliott missed his only field-goal attempt but went 3-for-3 on extra points.

Analysis: Elliott's lone field-goal attempt was a 54-yarder as time expired in the first half. He missed it wide right. He converted all three of his extra points, with the Eagles successfully going for two following their final touchdown to extend their lead to 29-17. Elliott has made just six field goals all season, with the Eagles continuing to find the end zone so frequently that he's rarely been needed. His last successful field goal came back in Week 6.

Nov 4, 2022 2:20 PM EST

Only needed for extra points

Elliott went 5-for-5 on extra-point attempts in Sunday's Week 8 win over the Steelers but was not asked to kick any field goals.

Analysis: Elliott hasn't lost any effectiveness this season, but the Eagles have found the end zone frequently enough that his fantasy value has taken a hit. He's only missed two kicks (one field goal and one extra point) all season, but the Eagles rank last in the league in field-goal attempts thanks in large part to the fact that they rank second in the league in touchdowns.

Returns with season-long kick

Elliott made both of his field goals and both of his extra points in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Elliott showed no ill effects of the ankle injury that sent him to the sidelines in Week 5, converting all of his kicks. His 51-yard field goal in the middle of the second quarter was his longest kick of the year. The Eagles' success in finding the end zone has meant they haven't needed to call his number too frequently this season, however, as he's still yet to attempt more than two field goals in a game.

Cleared for Sunday night

Elliott (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Cameron Dicker filled in admirably last week, but the Eagles nonetheless will be happy to get their kicker back in the lineup ahead of this battle between NFC East contenders. While his career track record isn't great, Elliott had his best season in 2021 and now finds himself attached to one of the best offenses in the league, providing a steady volume of PATs (14 attempts in four games) but not as many field-goal tries (five) so far.

Oct 14, 2022 1:21 PM EST

Limited again Thursday

Elliott (right ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.

Analysis: Following a DNP this past Sunday at Arizona due to a right ankle injury, Elliott has been able to kick this week, albeit with a cap on his reps. Still, he converted a number of field-goal attempts in the 40-yard range and also kicked off using a tee at Thursday's session, according to Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer. It's unclear if Elliott is in line to play Sunday against the Cowboys, but if he doesn't, he'll hand over placekicking duties to practice-squad member Cameron Dicker for a second consecutive contest.

Kicking for second straight day

Elliott (ankle), who was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, was spotted kicking Thursday during the media-access portion of Thursday's session, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Tolentino notes that Elliott was converting field-goal attempts from about 40 yards out with relative ease, but it's not yet clear if the kicker is fully comfortable from longer distances or on kickoffs while he manages the right ankle injury. It's unclear if Elliott did enough for the Eagles to list him as a full participant Thursday, but the 27-year-old looks to be in a good spot to gain clearance to return to the lineup Sunday against the Cowboys. If the injury forces Elliott to miss a second straight game, however, the Eagles will likely elevate Cameron Dicker from the practice squad to handle kicking duties.

Not slated to play Sunday

Elliott (ankle) isn't in line to play Sunday at Arizona, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Elliott emerged from the Eagles' Week 4 win versus the Jaguars with a right ankle injury, which hasn't allowed him to practice this week. The team signed undrafted rookie Cameron Dicker to its practice squad Tuesday, and it appears he's destined to be elevated Saturday and sub in for Elliott on Sunday. As for Elliott, his absence isn't expected to be a long-term one, so he could be available Week 6 against the Cowboys.

Oct 6, 2022 12:36 PM EST

Sitting out again Thursday

Elliott (ankle) observed Thursday's practice while practice squad member Cameron Dicker handled kicking duties, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Elliott toughed out a right ankle issue during the Eagles' Week 4 win against the Jaguars, a contest in which he made his only field-goal attempt and two of three point-after tries. In the wake of the injury, he has yet to practice this week, while the team signed Dicker to the practice squad Tuesday. Philadelphia doesn't need to make a decision on Elliott's status until 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 p.m. kickoff in Arizona, but the situation could be settled well before then, especially if he remains sidelined at Friday's session.

Oct 6, 2022 10:54 AM EST

Hoping to play

Elliott (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday but said he hopes to be ready for Sunday's game in Arizona, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Elliott played through the injury in Sunday's 29-21 win over the Jaguars, though it may have been a factor in missing an extra point. His Week 5 matchup with Arizona appears favorable if Elliott is deemed healthy enough to play -- something the Eagles may determine in practice this week, or perhaps Sunday afternoon before the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

Oct 5, 2022 2:04 PM EST

Dealing with leg injury

Elliott sustained an apparent leg injury in Sunday's 29-21 win over the Jaguars, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Though Elliott wasn't forced to exit Sunday's contest, he was clearly affected by the injury, which may have been a factor on his missed extra-point attempt late in the second quarter. According to McLane, Eagles special teams coordinator Michael Clay said Tuesday that Elliott has a chance to play in Philadelphia's Week 5 matchup with the Cardinals, but the kicker's status likely won't be determined until he's evaluated in practice over the next few days. The Eagles will return to the field Wednesday for a walk-through session to kick off Week 5 prep.

Oct 4, 2022 9:47 AM EST

Misses extra point

Elliott made his lone field goal attempt in Sunday's win over the Jaguars but missed one of his three extra points.

Analysis: Elliott converted a pair of extra points in the second quarter but missed a third wide right. He later added a 28-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. He's yet to make more than a single field goal in any of the Eagles' four games this season, with the team instead finding the end zone on a regular basis.
