Justin Tucker: Another strong season

Tucker converted 28 of 29 field goals and 57 of 59 extra-point attempts in 2019, finishing third among all kickers in total fantasy points.

Analysis: The Pro Bowler has now finished in the top three among kickers in three of the last four seasons, with 2017 checking in as the lone outlier. Tucker wasn't leaned on to provide points as much as in years past, and that has to do with the Ravens leading the league in scoring offense and touchdowns. 2019 marked the first time in Tucker's career that he attempted fewer than 30 field goals, and yet he still finished near the top for kickers thanks to Baltimore's explosive offense. As long as Lamar Jackson is leading the charge for the Baltimore offense, Tucker can remain an elite option at kicker even if his box score contributions look different than his early career when he was attempting 35-or-more field goals every season.

Justin Tucker: Gets back on track

Tucker converted one field goal and all four of his extra point attempts Sunday against the Browns.

Analysis: Tucker is on pace to finish the season with the fewest field goal attempts of his career as he's attempted just 25 through 15 games. He has never attempted fewer than 33 field goal in any of his eight-year career, nor has he made fewer than 29 field goals in any of those seasons. His accuracy is near his peak, though, as Tucker has converted 96 percent of his field goals, which is second only to his 97.4 percent conversion rate in 2016. Of course, Tucker has made up for the lack of field goals with a massive spike in extra points. Tucker is already 15 extra point attempts ahead of his previous career high as he heads into the season finale against the Steelers. Only Harrison Butker and Will Lutz have more fantasy points than Tucker among kickers.

Justin Tucker: No field-goal tries

Tucker made four of five extra-point attempts during Thursday's 42-21 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Tucker didn't attempt a field goal during Thursday's blowout, as Baltimore's hyper-efficient offense rolled to six touchdowns and didn't let up on the gas. The standout kicker will travel to Cleveland in Week 16.

December 13, 2019 9:46 AM EST

Justin Tucker: Automatic in Buffalo

Tucker converted all three of his extra-point attempts plus a 36-yard field goal Sunday against the Bills.

Analysis: Tucker was perfect on the day for the third straight week and leads the league in extra point conversions with 47. Only Kansas City's Harrison Butker and New Orleans' Will Lutz have more fantasy points among kickers. Tucker and the Ravens will host the Jets on Thursday.

Justin Tucker: Wins game versus Niners

Tucker clinched Sunday's 20-17 win over the 49ers with a 49-yard field goal as time expired. He also converted from 30 yards on his only other field-goal attempt and made both his extra-point tries.

Analysis: Tucker again proved why he's one of the best kickers in league history, nailing all four of his kicks in a top-heavy tussle in the pouring rain. The veteran has missed just two of his 68 total attempts this season, enabling him to rack up 110 points for the NFL's highest-scoring team.

Justin Tucker: Another double-digit outing

Tucker made his only field-goal attempt as well as all eight of his extra-point tries in Monday night's 45-6 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Tucker converted from 34 yards on his lone field goal, as he was otherwise limited to PAT work. Still, with Baltimore's offense consistently finding the end zone, Tucker was able to put up his second straight week with 11 points. That brings his season tally to 102, ranking second league-wide.

Justin Tucker: Misses first field goal of 2019

Tucker went 2-for-3 on field goals and made five extra points in Sunday's win over the Texans.

Analysis: The Ravens lit up the scoreboard again Sunday and Tucker has now attempted at least five extra points in each of his last three games. Tucker also had his first multi-field goal game since Week 7 in Seattle, but his chance at being perfect on field goals this season was extinguished when he pushed a 43-yard field goal in the first quarter. He averages 9.3 fantasy points per game, putting him 0.2 behind Kansas City's Harrison Butker for tops in the NFL. Tucker and the Ravens will head west to face the Rams on Monday Night Football in Week 12.

Justin Tucker: Notches 11 points

Tucker made all three of his field-goal attempts and both his extra-point tries in Week 6's 23-17 win over the Bengals.

Analysis: Tucker converted from 40, 49 and 21 yards on his respective field goals. The veteran has made all 30 of his kicking attempts this season, racking up 56 points in the process. That mark currently places him second league-wide in scoring.

Justin Tucker: Boots game-winner against Steelers

Tucker converted all four of his field-goal attempts Sunday against the Steelers as well as both of his extra-point attempts.

Analysis: Tucker was the hero for the Ravens on Sunday, booting a 46-yarder in the open end of Heinz Field to deliver a victory in overtime. According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN, Tucker is now 24-for-25 on field goals at Heinz Field, a mark of 96 percent while other opposing kickers are making 79 percent of their attempts since the stadium opened in 2001. Tucker is 10-for-10 on field goals on the year and will return home to face the Bengals in Week 6.

Justin Tucker: Converts all kicks Sunday

Tucker connected on his lone field-goal attempt and made both his extra-point attempts in Week 4 against the Browns.

Analysis: The Ravens had a two-point conversion attempt again Sunday, making it two weeks in a row that the Ravens have gone the aggressive route in leaving Tucker on the sidelines for an extra point try. Baltimore seems committed to going for two, especially when trailing, which might cut into Tucker's extra-point attempts. He's still automatic as a field goal kicker, however, so he still carries a high value for his position.

October 1, 2019 7:45 AM EST

Justin Tucker: Underutilized Sunday

Tucker made his lone field goal -- a 39-yarder -- in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Baltimore scored 28 points in an unconventional fashion Sunday, leaving Tucker on the sidelines three times in favor of attempting two-point conversions. It's unlikely that Baltimore will be that aggressive with its post-touchdown decisions every week, so look for Tucker's usage to get back to normal as soon as Week 4 when the Ravens host the Browns.

September 23, 2019 7:56 PM EST

Justin Tucker: Perfect again Sunday

Tucker went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts Sunday and converted both of his extra-point attempts against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Tucker was automatic again Sunday, making field goals of 33, 28, and 51 yards. He has converted all 10 of his extra points and all four of his field goals through two weeks and will likely be busy again in Week 3 when Baltimore faces Kansas City in what's setting up to be a high-scoring contest.

September 16, 2019 2:11 PM EST

Justin Tucker: Busy in opener

Tucker connected on a 34-yard field goal attempt Sunday and converted all eight of his extra-point attempts.

Analysis: The eight extra points won't be the norm, but it was encouraging nonetheless for Tucker to be perfect on what was an extremely busy day for the star kicker. Tucker returns home for Week 2 when the Ravens host the Cardinals. He was 19-for-20 on field goals, including a perfect 3-for-3 on attempts of 50-or-more yards, at M&T Bank Stadium in 2018.

Justin Tucker: Staying in Baltimore long term

Tucker is signing a four-year contract extension with the Ravens, Clifton Brown of the team's official website reports.

Analysis: Tucker leads the NFL in career field-goal percentage (90.1) and has consistently turned in useful fantasy seasons despite being attached to mediocre or subpar offenses. His phenomenal track record includes at least four field goals of 50 or more yards in each of his seven NFL seasons, with a career conversion rate of 70.4 percent (38 of 54) from long range. The 29-year-old kicker showed no sign of decline in 2018, though he did miss a game-tying extra point (Week 7 vs. New Orleans) to snap his streak of 222 consecutive PATs.

April 24, 2019 7:50 AM EST

Justin Tucker: Another stellar season

Tucker converted on 35 of 39 field goal attempts and added 36 extra points on 37 attempts in 2018.

Analysis: Another strong season netted Tucker a first-team All-Pro nod and kept him cemented as one of the elite kickers in the NFL. He connected on five kicks of 50-plus yards and has now made at least 30 field goals in four straight seasons and six of his seven seasons overall. Tucker will enter the final season of his four-year, $16.8 million deal with the Ravens in 2019.

January 8, 2019 10:02 AM EST

Justin Tucker: Pair of misses in win

Tucker made three of his five field-goal attempts and an extra point in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Tucker's line was deflated by a series of long kicks against Los Angeles. He missed a makable 53-yard attempt and a 65-yard prayer as time expired in the first half. He did manage to connect from 56-yards and on his shorter attempts. He's hitting on 89 percent of his field goals this season (31-of-35) and continues to be one of the best fantasy options in the league at his position.

December 24, 2018 7:42 AM EST

Justin Tucker: Two field goals in win

Tucker connected on both field-goal attempts and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Tucker converted field-goal attempts from 24-yards and 35-yards out. He improves to 28-for-30 on field-goal attempts this season -- fifth best percentage in the league of those over at least 20 attempts.

December 17, 2018 7:49 PM EST

Justin Tucker: Perfect day at the office

Tucker knocked through his only field goal attempt from 28 yards and converted each of his three extra point attempts during Sunday's 27-24 loss to Kansas City.

Analysis: It was a typical day at the office for Tucker who is now 26-for-28 on the season. Tucker's six points ended his streak of four consecutive games with at least 10 points, but that is more of a product of opportunity than anything else. The 29-year-old has used this season to prove loud and clear that he still has plenty left in the tank.

December 10, 2018 5:04 PM EST

Justin Tucker: Scores 14 points in win

Tucker converted all four field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries during Sunday's 26-16 win over the Falcons.

Analysis: Tucker logged an outstanding fantasy outing Week 13, accounting for more than half of Baltimore's total points. He has not missed a kick since Week 7. The 29-year-old remains one of the top fantasy options at his position heading into Sunday's tilt against the Chiefs.

December 3, 2018 2:31 PM EST

Justin Tucker: Perfect again in win

Tucker converted both his field-goal attempts and made all four of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 34-17 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Tucker has kicked at least two field goals in three straight games, and remains a pillar of stability in Baltimore's offense despite questions at the quarterback position. He'll look to log another strong outing against the Falcons on Sunday.
