Jake Elliott: Bankable from inside 40 yards

Elliott completed 22-of-26 field-goal attempts in 2019 and converted 33 of his 35 extra-point tries.

Analysis: In each of his three years in the league, Elliott has logged at least an 83.9 percent success rate, earning himself a new five-year deal in the process. He did not miss a single field-goal attempt from inside 40 yards during the season, despite whiffing on two extra-point tries. The 24-year-old accounted for all of the Eagles' nine points in their Wild Card loss and looks to be a fixture on the team for years to come.

Jake Elliott: Tallies 10 points in win

Elliott made both of his field-goal attempts as well as all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Elliott got back on track in the division-clinching win a week after missing two long kicks against the Cowboys. While the 24-year-old saw five fewer field-goal opportunities in the 2019 regular season than in each of his two previous years in the league, he notched a career-high 84.6 percent success rate and secured a five-year contract extension in the process. The Memphis product will look to keep punching the ball through the uprights in the Wild Card game at home against Seattle on Sunday.

Jake Elliott: Misses two long kicks in win

Elliott made one of his three field-goal tries and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's 17-9 victory over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Elliott converted a 36-yarder to get Philadelphia out to a 3-0 lead in the first quarter but failed from 53-yards with just 34 seconds remaining in the second allowing the Cowboys to set up a field goal before the half expired. He'd hook a 55-yard try wide left in the fourth that again set up a Dallas field goal on the succeeding drive. The two attempts from beyond 50 yards were just his second and third of the year.

Jake Elliott: Seven points in win

Elliott made his lone field-goal attempt and four extra points in Sunday's 37-27 win over Washington.

Analysis: Elliott made a 25-yard field goal on the Eagles' opening drive of the game. He's missed just two of 21 attempts on the year.

Jake Elliott: Misses a kick

Elliott made one of his two field-goal attempts and both his extra-point tries in Monday night's 23-17 overtime win over the Giants.

Analysis: Elliott converted from 34 yards in the second quarter, but missed wide left from 47 yards on his next field-goal attempt. Although he made his other two kicks on the evening, Elliott has now misfired once in back-to-back outings ahead of Week 15's game against the Redskins.

December 10, 2019 6:13 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Misses first field-goal of season

Elliott made three of his four field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries in Sunday's 37-31 loss to Miami.

Analysis: Elliott made from 48 and 43 yards in the first half before pulling a 49-yard attempt wide left in the third quarter. The kick would have given the Eagles a 31-20 lead. It was just the second game Elliott has had more than two field-goal opportunities all season.

Jake Elliott: Lands huge extension

The Eagles signed Elliott to a five-year, $21.8 million contract extension on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Elliott's contract extension includes $10.45 million in guarantees, making him the third-highest paid kicker in the NFL. The third-year pro has converted all 14 of his field-goal tries through 11 contests year, and he's nailed 21 of 23 extra-point attempts. In his career, Elliott has made an excellent 66 of 76 field-goal attempts (86.8 percent) and 93 of 100 extra-point tries.

November 27, 2019 3:21 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Good from 28 yards in loss

Elliott made his only field-goal attempt in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: Elliott put a 28-yarder through the uprights in the first quarter to give the Eagles a 3-0 lead, but he would not get another attempt, even for an extra point. He remains a perfect 14-for-14 on field-goal tries this year.

November 25, 2019 9:08 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Makes only attempt in loss

Elliott made his only field-goal attempt in Sunday's 17-10 loss to New England and added an extra point.

Analysis: Elliott put a 42-yarder through the uprights to give the Eagles a 3-0 lead in the first quarter but wasn't called on again for three. The 24-year-old has just 13 field-goal attempts on the year and just three games with multiple tries.

November 18, 2019 7:35 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Remains perfect in loss

Elliott made two field-goal attempts and two extra points in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Elliott nailed a 53-yard attempt in the second quarter to give the Eagles their first points of the day and his longest of the season. He would add a 40-yarder to cut the deficit to four midway through the third quarter but was not called on again as the team would not score further. Elliott is now 7-for-7 on field-goal tries this season and will look to keep streaking Week 7 at Dallas.

October 14, 2019 9:26 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Makes fifth attempt of year

Elliott made his lone field-goal attempt as well as four extra points in Sunday's 31-7 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Elliott made a chip-shot 28-yarder in the second quarter to end a one-game field-goal drought. He has seen precious few attempts this year, but with the Eagles' offense scoring more over the last two weeks, better times are likely on the horizon for the 24-year-old.

Jake Elliott: Doesn't get field-goal try in win

Elliott made four extra-points in Thursday's 34-27 win over the Packers but did not attempt a field goal.

Analysis: One shouldn't blame Elliott for his slow start, as he hasn't missed a field goal yet this season. The Eagles offense started the year slowly and then scored five touchdowns in this one, so they never needed the Memphis product to try for three. He'll look to rebound at home Week 5 against the Jets.

Jake Elliott: Makes only field-goal try in loss

Elliott made his only field-goal attempt and added three extra points in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions.

Analysis: Elliott got the Eagles on the board with a 25-yarder in the first quarter but wasn't called on again in the game except to add extra points. With the Eagles offense struggling to give him opportunities, there are probably better options in fantasy as Philadelphia heads to Green Bay on Thursday.

September 24, 2019 12:10 AM EST

Jake Elliott: Perfect in loss

Elliott made both of his field-goal attempts in Sunday-s 24-20 loss to the Falcons and did not attempt any extra points.

Analysis: Elliott gave the Eagles their only points of the first half with field goals of 34 and 41 yards in the second quarter. He'd sit the rest of the affair out though, aside from kickoffs, as Philadelphia twice needed to go for two as the game wound down. The 24-year-old has a good chance to see more scoring opportunities with Detroit on tap at home Week 3.

September 16, 2019 10:01 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Makes only field-goal try in win

Elliott made his only field goal attempt in Sunday's 32-27 win over Washington and added three extra points.

Analysis: Elliott sank the nail in Washington's coffin with a 22-yard boot midway through the fourth quarter to give the Eagles a 32-20 lead. The Memphis product will look to stay perfect on the road Week 2 at Atlanta.

Jake Elliott: Signing with Eagles for 2019

Elliott is staying with the Eagles on a one-year contract for 2019, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Elliott was scheduled to become an exclusive rights free agent, essentially locking him in for another year in Philadelphia even before Friday's agreement. The 24-year-old kicker has converted 83.9 percent of field-goal attempts and 93.5 percent of PATs through two seasons, including 19-of-21 from 40-49 yards and 7-of-11 from 50-plus. Given his attachment to an above-average offense, Elliott makes sense as a low-end kicker option with some upside in the final round of 2019 fantasy drafts.

Jake Elliott: Makes both kicks in playoff loss

Elliott converted both of his extra-point attempts Sunday in the Eagles' 20-14 loss to the Saints in the divisional round.

Analysis: Including the Eagles' two playoff contests, Elliott was generally solid during his second NFL season, as he converted 27 of 32 field-goal tries (84.4 percent) and missed only two of 38 point-after attempts. The 23-year-old will become an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason and will almost certainly be tendered a contract for 2019.

January 16, 2019 12:53 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Closes regular season in style

Elliott made his lone field-goal attempt and all three extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-0 win over the Redskins.

Analysis: Elliott got the scoring started in the first quarter by punching a 33-yarder through the uprights and then nailed an extra-point attempt in each successive period to help finish off the win. The 23-year-old wraps up the regular season with a repeat of his rookie year's 26 of 31 field-goal attempts made and with a slightly more accurate 33 of 35 on extra points. Four of those field-goal misses occurred in the first half of the season, but the second-year vet failed just once after the Eagles' Week 9 bye, and even that attempt was from beyond 50 yards.

January 1, 2019 1:23 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Nails game-winner Sunday

Elliott made both of his field-goal attempts and two of three extra-point tries in Sunday's 32-30 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Elliott again put his team in a precarious position by missing the extra-point try after the Eagles' first fourth-quarter touchdown that left them with just a 13-point advantage. He more than made up for it, however, as he punched a 35-yarder in to win it as time expired. The Memphis product also made a 47-yard attempt in the contest and has not missed from inside 50 yards since Week 7. Elliott will try to keep that streak intact with the Eagles' playoff hopes on the line Week 17 at Washington.

December 24, 2018 9:38 PM EST

Jake Elliott: Ready to play

Elliott (illness) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Texans, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Elliott missed practice Thursday but made it back Friday, apparently making good progress in his recovery from an illness. He'll be fine to handle the kicking work Week 16, facing a Houston team ranked fifth in the league for points allowed (20.1 per game).
