Joey Slye: Just one point in finale

Slye did not attempt a field goal but made his only extra point in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Slye was limited to PAT work as Carolina's offense struggled to get in scoring position for the second straight week. Despite combining for just three points in his last two outings, Slye still racked up 120 points on the campaign, making 29 of 36 field goals and 33 of 36 extra points. Notably, however, five of Slye's field-goal misses came from 50-plus yards, where his strong leg influenced the Panthers to attempt potential record-long kicks on a couple desperate occasions. On the whole, though, he still improved on his rookie point total while finishing 13th league-wide in the category, further establishing himself as a reliable commodity at the position, even despite Carolina's offense teetering without superstar Christian McCaffrey (thigh) available for the most of the 2020 campaign.

Joey Slye: Misses PAT in win

Slye did not attempt a field goal and missed one of his three extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-13 win over Washington.

Analysis: Slye went wide right with his opening PAT attempt, marking his first extra-point miss since Week 3. That miscue along with no field-goal attempts left Slye with a season low in points. However, with 119 total this term, Slye will have another chance to add to his career best Sunday versus the Saints.

Joey Slye: Hits double figures

Slye made all three of his field goals as well as his only extra-point try in Saturday's 24-16 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Slye converted from 36, 22 and 33 yards on his field goals, which helped him reach double-digit points for the fifth time this season. With four straight games of at least eight points, Slye currently sports 117 with two contests remaining.

Slye made both of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Slye converted from 35 and 26 yards on his field goals, which along with his three PATs gave him a third straight outing with at least eight points. That production sees Slye currently sitting on 107 points this season, ranking him eighth among kickers league-wide.

Joey Slye: Misses two kicks

Slye made two of four field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Slye converted from 40 and 21 yards on his respective field-goal makes, but had a 28-yarder blocked in the third quarter and then went wide left with a 54-yarder to win the game as time expired. Although he'll be disappointed by those missed opportunities, Slye's nine points Sunday marked his highest total in his last six appearances, bringing his tally to 98 points through 12 games.

Joey Slye: Makes all four kicks

Slye made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Lions.

Analysis: Slye's big leg was on display, as he converted a 56-yarder in the third quarter for a new career long. The second-year pro then made a 37-yard kick in the fourth, bringing his tally to eight points, which marked his best total since Week 6.

November 23, 2020 6:30 AM EST

Joey Slye: Makes all three kicks

Slye made his only field-goal attempt and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 46-23 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Slye converted from 46 yards on his lone field goal, but with his opportunities limited Sunday, he posted his fourth straight game with single-digit points. Although Slye still sports 81 points through 10 games, his recent outputs have slowed his pace significantly.

November 16, 2020 7:36 AM EST

Joey Slye: Misses two kicks

Slye missed two of his three field-goal attempts but made all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 33-31 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Slye converted from 47 yards on his first field goal, but then hit the left upright from 51 yards and went wide right on a potential-record, 67-yard attempt as regulation expired. By making all four of his PATs, however, Slye managed seven points in total, his highest amount over the past three weeks.

Joey Slye: Makes all three kicks

Slye made his only field-goal attempt as well as both of his extra-point tries in Thursday night's 25-17 loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: Slye converted from 39 yards on his field-goal effort but again had his opportunities limited by a Panthers offense that struggled to move the ball. With All-Pro tailback Christian McCaffrey (ankle) seemingly set to return in Week 9, however, Slye could get more involved going forward, and his current total of 69 points through eight games still represents quality value.

Joey Slye: Misses record kick

Slye made one of two field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Slye's only miss came on a 65-yard attempt that would've set an NFL record while tying the game with under two minutes remaining. The big-legged kicker was just short on that try, but converted from 43 yards on his prior field-goal attempt Sunday. Through seven games, Slye now sports 64 points, and has a great chance to add to that hefty total in Week 8 versus the Falcons.

Joey Slye: Activated from COVID-19 list

Slye was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: Slye's activation after just two days suggests the kicker's placement on the list was simply precautionary. He has connected on 16 of 18 field-goal attempts through six games this season and will look to build on that strong start Sunday against the Saints.

October 23, 2020 10:26 AM EST

Joey Slye: Placed on COVID-19 list

Slyehas been placed on the Panthers' reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Slye's placement on the list means that he's either tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with another person who has tested positive. The Panthers currently do not roster another kicker, with the team's next game slated to take place Sunday against the Saints.

Analysis: Slye converted from 21 and 20 yards on his first two field-goal efforts, then missed wide right from 54 yards before closing the day with a 48-yard make. With an extra point tossed in there as well, the second-year pro hit double figures for the second straight game, bringing his season tally to an impressive 58 points through six outings.

Joey Slye: Scores 15 points

Slye made all five of his field-goal attempts but missed his only extra-point try in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Slye nailed kicks from 29, 24, 30, 22 and 31 yards as Carolina's offense failed to score touchdowns from in close. The one time the Panthers did find the end zone, however, Slye's extra-point try was blocked. Although he'll be disappointed by having missed two of his five PATs so far, with a season-high 15 points Sunday, Slye still sports a healthy 30 through three weeks.

September 28, 2020 7:14 AM EST

Joey Slye: Makes all three kicks

Slye made his lone field-goal attempt as well as both his extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Joey Slye: Misses extra point

Slye made all three of his field-goal attempts but missed one of his two extra-point tries in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: Slye converted from 47, 46 and 31 yards on his respective field goals, showing his strong leg in the process. However, the second-year kicker went wide left with his first extra-point attempt of the season, putting the Panthers in a tough situation as they trailed by four points late. While Slye will be disappointed by that miscue, his fantasy owners should at least be encouraged by him posting double-digit points to start the season.
