Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in Week 3 on Monday night. The 28-year-old is on pace to smash last year's production. Through two games, he has already converted 6-of-7 field goals, with three of them being from 50 or more yards away. For context, Elliott converted just 20 field goals in 2022. Philadelphia has to settle for more three-point attempts than last year, much to the fantasy benefit of the veteran kicker. Tampa Bay's defense has not let up a ton of points through two games, but the matchup matters little when it comes to the Eagles' offense. Elliott should have plenty of chances to convert kicks and carries a high fantasy-scoring floor and ceiling heading into the prime-time matchup. Elliott is a must-start option in Week 3.

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made 2-of-3 field goals and converted all four extra point attempts during the team's 34-28 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The 28-year-old missed his first field goal of the season from 55 yards out at the end of the first quarter but made his longest of the season from 61 yards away before going into halftime. Elliott attempted just 23 field goals in 2022 but is now at seven attempts in just two games. The Eagles kicker is a much more reliable fantasy option than he was a year ago, and he has proven to be able to hit on long field goal attempts multiple times. He should be considered a top-12 option against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week.

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott will face the Minnesota Vikings in the team's season opener on Thursday night. After a phenomenal Week 1, where the 28-year-old hit four field goals (two from over 50 yards out), he will now face the Minnesota Vikings in a potentially high-scoring affair. After putting up low-end fantasy numbers last season due to the increased touchdown rate Philadelphia had, Elliott was viewed as a bit boom-or-bust heading into the regular season. However, he has a stable floor and increased upside when the Eagles play tough defenses. This week could be a letdown in comparison to last. Minnesota's defense is nowhere near the caliber of New England and will likely let up more touchdowns to Philadelphia. With that said Elliott is a safe option in Week 2 with a top-five upside.

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott made four field goals and missed his lone extra point attempt during the team's 25-20 victory over the New England Patriots in the season opener. The 28-year-old completed kicks from 32, 48, 51, and 56 yards out, giving fantasy managers a massive performance. The extra point that was missed was early in the contest when the rain was coming down hard and heavily affecting field conditions. Elliott will have weeks where he attempts little to no field goals due to the nature of Philadelphia's high-powered offense. However, the veteran kicker has a high fantasy ceiling in matchups with stiff defenses like this one. The Vikings are up next for Philadelphia in their home opener on Thursday. Elliott should be considered a high-end streaming option in Week 2.

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott will go on the road to face the New England Patriots to open the regular season this Sunday. The 28-year-old attempted only 23 field goals in 2022, the second-fewest of his career. Philadelphia was an offensive juggernaut and rarely needed to attempt three-pointers when in scoring range. That likely will remain the same in 2023, but Elliott should attempt more with a much tougher strength of schedule on Philadelphia's slate. The veteran kicker will provide fantasy managers with a solid scoring baseline after attempting a career-high 53 extra-point attempts last season. However, his ceiling is capped against poor defenses. This week's matchup against New England is solid, and Elliott can be streamed for those without one of the elite options in Week 1.
