Struggles in 2021

Myers connected on 17 of 23 field-goal attempts (74 percent) and 44 of 47 extra-point tries (94 percent) over 17 games during the 2021 season.

Analysis: Myers hit all 24 field-goal tries during the 2020 season, but he faced severe regression in 2021, making just six of 10 attempts from beyond 40 yards. His job isn't guaranteed for the 2022 season, as the Seahawks could save $4 million against the salary cap if they cut him. Over his three years in Seattle, he has connected on 64 of 75 field-goal attempts (85 percent) and 133 of 144 extra-point tries (92 percent).

Knocks home nine kicks

Myers made all three field-goal attempts and all six extra-point tries in Sunday's 51-29 win over the Lions.

Analysis: Myers made field goals from 51, 42 and 36 yards in his best game of the season. The 30-year-old has had a tough campaign, making 13 of 19 field goals leading up to Week 17, so this game could help his chances to stick with the Seahawks in 2022. If the Seahawks decide to move on, they'll save $4 million against the salary cap.

Misses kick Sunday

Myers missed one of his two field-goal attempts but made all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Myers converted from 36 yards on his first field goal, but his miss from 39 yards in the fourth quarter ultimately contributed toward Seattle taking a narrow defeat. The veteran has now missed a kick in three of his last four games and sits with just 72 points on the campaign, ranking outside the top 25 league-wide at his position.

Seahawks-Rams moved to Tuesday

Myers and the Seahawks will no longer play the Rams on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

Analysis: Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Rams organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, Los Angeles will be able to restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. After Tuesday's game, the Seahawks will face a quick turnaround for Week 16 with a Sunday matchup versus the Bears on Dec. 26.

Misses two extra points

Myers connected on both of his field-goal attempts but made just one of three extra-point tries in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Myers missed just one extra-point attempt before Week 14, but his kicking has been suspect this year. The 30-year-old has made 11 of 16 field-goal tries (69 percent), and he has converted just 50 percent of his kicks from beyond 40 yards. Myers doesn't attempt many kicks, so he's unreliable for fantasy purposes anyway.

Misses long field goal

Myers missed a 56-yard field goal try but made all three extra-point attempts in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Myers' longest field goal of the season is 53 yards. We know he has the leg because he made a 61-yarder last season, but he left this one short. It's been a tough year for Myers, as he has connected on nine of 14 field-goal attempts (64 percent) and just four of eight tries from beyond 40 yards (50 percent). The good news is that his next two games are in dome settings (Houston and Los Angeles).

Makes lone attempt

Myers did not attempt a field goal but made his only extra-point try in Monday night's 17-15 loss to Washington.

Analysis: Myers did all that was required of him, but he again fell victim to Seattle's offense struggling to get in scoring position. The veteran now boasts just 51 points through 11 games this season.

Nails all three kicks

Myers made both field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: Both of Myers' field goals were within 30 yards. He has now hit nine of 13 field-goal tries (69 percent) and 23 of 24 extra points (96 percent) through 10 games. He's not getting many opportunities thus far, and the Seahawks' recent offensive dysfunction lowers his ceiling. He'll look to get back on track against Washington in Week 12.

No attempts Sunday

Myers did not attempt a kick in Sunday's 17-0 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Myers and Seattle's offense were shut out for the first time this season, but to no fault of the kicker's own. The veteran, who sports merely 42 points this season, will hope for some kicking opportunities in Week 11 versus the Cardinals.

Nov 16, 2021 2:56 PM EST


Perfect in win

Myers connected on his lone field-goal attempt and all four extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-7 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Myers missed four field-goal tries over the previous three weeks, so it was good to see him back on track even if his only field goal was from 31 yards out. The 30-year-old has now made seven of 11 field goals and 22 of 23 extra points through eight games.

Nov 1, 2021 7:44 AM EST


Misses twice in defeat

Myers missed two of his three field-goal attempts and made his only extra-point try in Monday night's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Myers missed from 44 and 53 yards, which despite converting a 50-yarder in between contributed toward a narrow defeat in rainy conditions. The veteran now sports just 36 points through seven games this season, placing him outside the top 20 league-wide at his position.

Oct 26, 2021 3:17 PM EST


Hits all four kicks

Myers connected on both field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: Myers hit a 40-yarder early in the fourth quarter and knocked home another as regulation expired to send the game to overtime. After missing two field goals over the previous three weeks, it's encouraging that Myers is back on track. The Seahawks may be even more conservative on fourth downs with Russell Wilson (finger) out of the lineup, so Myers' ceiling could go up a bit, though he still has attempted just seven field goals through six games.

Oct 18, 2021 10:37 AM EST


Misses field goal

Myers connected on one of two field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries in Thursday's 26-17 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Myers has now missed two of his last four field-goal tries after sending a 35-yard attempt wide left Thursday. Having attempted just five field goals this season, Myers' upside is capped anyway, so fantasy managers should be concerned with him missing chip shots. He'll look to get back on track in Week 6 against the Steelers.

No field goals

Myers did not attempt a field goal but made all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-21 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Myers was perfect on the day, even though he was limited to PAT duties. Through four games, the veteran now sports just 19 points, having made 15 of 17 total attempts.

Oct 5, 2021 11:56 AM EST


Misses field goal

Myers connected on one of two field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Myers knocked home a 53-yard field goal in the first quarter, but he send a 44-yarder wide left in the second quarter, snapping his franchise-record streak of 37 straight made field goals. The 31-year-old kicker has a decent floor due to extra points on a weekly basis, but he's averaging just 1.4 field-goal tries per game since the beginning of the 2020 season.

Sep 27, 2021 8:18 AM EST


Misses key extra point

Myers made a 31-yard field goal and three of four extra-point attempts in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Myers hasn't missed a field goal since the beginning of the 2020 season, but he has misfired on five extra-point tries over the past 18 games. Sunday's miss was unfortunate considering the Titans would've been forced to try a two-point conversion on their final drive if Myers had connected. Myers will likely be a low-ceiling fantasy option as long the Seahawks' offense continues its efficiency in the red zone.

Sep 21, 2021 5:11 PM EST


Makes all four kicks

Myers did not attempt a field goal but made all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Myers was restricted to PAT duties but was successful every time he was called upon. The veteran will hope to maintain his perfect record while getting some field-goal opportunities in Week 2 versus the Titans.

Sep 14, 2021 4:43 PM EST


Drills 40-yarder

Myers connected on his lone field-goal attempt -- a 40-yard kick -- during Saturday's 30-3 preseason loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: The Seahawks didn't bring in any competition for Myers after the 30-year-old made all 24 field-goal attempts last season, including 15 from beyond 40 yards. Myers should be selected as a starter in fantasy this season.

Aug 22, 2021 9:02 AM EST


Continues success in postseason

Myers connected on both field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Myers hit field goals from 50 and 52 yards, capping off a perfect season in terms of field-goal attempts. The 29-year-old made all 26 field-goal tries over 18 games this season, including four attempts from beyond 50 yards and 15 attempts from beyond 40 yards. Myers has now hit 37 consecutive field goals dating back to the 2019 season, and he'll look to keep that streak running in 2021, as he's under contract for two more years.

Jan 11, 2021 7:48 AM EST


Perfect on field goals in 2020

Myers connected on both field-goal attempts and two of three extra-point tries in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Myers hit two field goals from 36 and 30 yards in the first half, keeping his streak alive with 35 straight made field goals dating back to last year. The 29-year-old has been a bit shaky on PATs, however, as he has made just 49 of 53 extra-point tries. Myers finishes the 2020 season 13th in the league with 121 points.
