Signs four-year extension

Bass signed a four-year extension worth up to $21 million Thursday, Peter Schrager of FoxSports.com reports.

Analysis: Bass has spent the first three years of his professional career in Buffalo. He has emerged as one of the most accurate kickers in that span, making 88 and 87 percent of his kicks in the last two seasons, respectively. He's been rewarded with at least $12.3 million in guaranteed money and looks to have a long-term job in Buffalo.

Crosses the t's in touchdowns

Bass converted all five extra-point tries and did not receive a field-goal attempt during Buffalo's 35-23 win over New England on Sunday.

Analysis: Bass was close to perfect all season, making 27 of 31 field-goal attempts while missing just two of 50 extra-point tries. Late in the season, his production dropped off once the Bills developed a knack for either scoring touchdowns or turning the ball over in the red zone. He finishes the regular season with 129 points, a figure he's reached in all three of his NFL seasons. Bass finishes tied for sixth among all kickers in scoring.

Struggles in nasty weather

Bass missed his only field-goal attempt -- a 38-yarder -- and was 3-of-4 on extra-point tries in Saturday's win over the Bears.

Analysis: Bass has been locked in all season, as the field-goal miss was his first since Week 9, so this can probably be easily forgiven, though he and the Bills were clearly frustrated with either the kicking conditions or the kicking game, as they went for two points at one point when an extra-point try would have normally been the call. Nonetheless, the team and its kicker got their acts together in the second half, where Bass made three extra-point tries two finish up the day. Bass may not be finished with tricky conditions, as the Bills head to Cincinnati in Week 17 before finishing up at home against the Patriots.

Perfect in imperfect conditions

Bass made his only field-goal attempt and all three of his extra-point tries during Saturday night's 32-29 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: Bass was locked out of field-goal tries until the very end, when he put one through the uprights during snowfall on the last play of the game to send the Bills to the playoffs for the fourth straight season. While the six point isn't great for the top end of fantasy kickers, Bass managers also have to take some comfort in that the game wasn't a total wash for kickers, as most of the snow help off until the later stages of the game. Bass leads the NFL in scoring with 121 points, three ahead of New England's Nick Folk.

Another clean game

Bass made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Bass converted from 38 and 49 yards on his field goals. With four games remaining, his 115 points lead all kickers this season.

Dec 13, 2022 5:04 PM EST

Perfect in win

Bass made his only field-goal attempt and all three of his extra-point tries in Week 13's 24-10 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Bass converted from 48 yards on his lone field goal. Although his six points were below his average, Bass still ranks first among kickers league-wide with 107 total points this season.

Key role as Bills get needed win

Bass connected on both field-goal tries and two of three extra-point tries in Thursday's win over the Lions.

Analysis: Bass missed his first extra-point attempt on the season and it almost proved costly for the Bills in a back-and-forth contest, but he redeemed himself by hitting the game-winner -- a 45-yarder -- with just a few seconds left as the Bills survived and won their second straight. The missed XPT was the first by Bass in a regular-season game since Week 14 of 2020, quite the streak for the third-year kicker. Bass leads the NFL with 101 points.

Major role in challenging week

Bass connected on all six field-goal tries and his only extra-point attempt in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Analysis: The game was moved to Detroit and perfect conditions due to a snowstorm in Buffalo, and perhaps nobody benefited more than the third-year kicker, as we have to imagine it would have been tough to make six field goals in a game that would have been greatly affected by weather. We also have to imagine the 19 points won a number of fantasy games in Week 11, as Bass actually out-pointed superstar teammate Josh Allen for the week. Bass's big outing has vaulted him all the way to the top of the list among all kickers with 93 points.

Nov 21, 2022 5:38 PM EST

Perfect in defeat

Bass made all three of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Bass hit a 29-yarder to send the game to overtime after converting field goals from 34 and 45 yards earlier in the game. His 12 total points marked a season high and brought him up to fifth among kickers in points this term.

Costly miss in divisional loss

Bass was 1-for-2 on field goals and made both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: The miss can be easily forgiven, as it was a 55-yard try with some wind to deal with, but that doesn't make it any easier to stomach for the Buffalo faithful. Bass sits in a tie for 10th in scoring entering Monday's play, which can actually be viewed as a mild disappointment given that he was generally one of the top three kickers off the board. For the season, Bass is 12-of-15 on field-goal attempts and has made all 26 of his extra-point tries.

Notches nine points

Bass made both of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday night's 27-17 win over the Packers.

Analysis: Bass converted field goals from 42 and 38 yards. His nine points marked his third most in a game this season, with his overall tally of 57 putting him just outside the top ten for kickers league-wide.

Nov 1, 2022 11:30 PM EST

Perfect in big win

Bass made his only field-goal try -- a 39-yarder -- and all three of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Chiefs.

Analysis: While the volume wasn't high as the Bills got into the end zone three times and also had both a red-zone turnover and a red-zone drive end on downs, Bass was perfect on the day, a level he's been close to all season. The third-year kicker has missed two of 11 field-goal attempts and is a perfect 21-for-21 on extra points, something he hasn't missed on during the past two regular seasons. Bass currently sits sixth in the NFL in kicker scoring with 48 points.

Oct 18, 2022 12:19 PM EST

Has kick blocked

Bass missed one of two field-goal attempts but made all five of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-3 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Bass had a 49-yard field goal blocked in the first quarter, but he rallied to convert from 35 yards on the next drive. With Buffalo's offense having another big day, he got a handful more of PATs to his name, bringing his season tally up to 42 points, which ranks third among kickers league-wide.

Hits walk-off kick in Week 4 win

Bass made all three of his field-goal tries -- including the game-winner as time expired -- in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He also made both extra-point tries.

Analysis: The capable Bass has only missed one kick all season, with a 7-for-8 performance on field goals while making all 13 of his extra-point tries. In fact, Bass is perfect on 64 extra-point tries over the last two seasons and hasn't missed one since Week 14 of 2020. Bass is currently tied for fifth in the league with 34 points, as he continues to be a reliable fantasy kicker.

Misses first kick of season

Bass was 1-for-2 on field-goal attempts and made both of his extra-point kicks in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: The miss was Bass's first of any type on the season, but it was a costly one as the Bills lost by two points. Bass is now 4-of-5 on field-goal tries while hitting all 11 of his extra-point attempts on the campaign. He remains one of the elite kickers in fantasy, though it's worth noting the high-powered Buffalo offense did suffer a series of injuries in the loss.

Impressive 11 points on MNF

Bass made both of his field-goal tries and all five extra-point attempts during Monday's 41-7 win over the Titans.

Analysis: Through two weeks, Bass has posted 18 points, good for a tie for fifth among kickers. Given that he's in a high-powered offense, there's little reason Bass shouldn't be a top-10 guy all season, which is exactly where he was drafted in fantasy leagues. Bass has made all 12 of his kicks this season, which consists of three field goals and nine extra points. He and the Bills get the Dolphins in Miami this week in what could be a high-scoring contest.

Sep 20, 2022 10:34 AM EST

Nets seven points

Bass made his only field-goal attempt and all four of his extra-point tries in Week 1's 31-10 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Bass converted from 41 yards on his lone field goal, helping him total seven points to begin the campaign. As the kicker for one of the league's better offenses, Bass should have plenty of scoring opportunities this season.

Sep 13, 2022 10:12 AM EST

Big numbers in second season

Bass finished the 2021 season with 135 points, converting on 28 of 32 field-goal attempts and all 51 extra-point tries.

Analysis: Missing only four of 83 kicks is pretty amazing considering the climate Bass kicks in, as he's proven to be worth a rare draft selection from the kicking position. (Bass was chosen in the sixth round of the 2020 Draft). The point total put Bass into a tie for sixth among the league's kickers, and there's little reason he won't be a top-10 guy again next season given the high-powered offense with an elite quarterback.

Low total in flukey game

Bass made all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 29-15 win over the Falcons. He did not have a field-goal attempt.

Analysis: The scoring got a bit crooked when the Falcons picked up a safety to open the scoring, which caused the Bills to go for two at one point when it made sense to do so. Couple that with Buffalo's red-zone success in the contest and Bass was used only slightly more than punter Matt Haack, who somehow hasn't had a single punt in the last two games. Bass, who sits in a tie for seventh in kicker scoring following Week 17, gets a great matchup to finish the regular season, with the Bills hosting the Jets on Sunday afternoon.

Jan 4, 2022 6:06 PM EST

Chips in during major win

Bass put up nine points in Sunday's 33-21 victory over the Patriots, converting both field-goal tries and all three of his extra-point attempts.

Analysis: Bass and the Bills got some revenge on their division rival from what was an awful performance in a humbling loss three weeks ago. Bass has been perfect since that game, making all five field-goal tries and all 10 extra-point attempts over the last three games. The second-year kicker is now up to 123 points on the season, good for fourth in the league. Barring a winter snowstorm, he'll get two nice opportunities to add to that total with juicy home matchups against the Falcons and Jets.
