Tyler Bass Worthy Of Top-10 Status Sunday

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass disappointed from a fantasy perspective in last Saturday's 24-22 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, drilling his lone field-goal attempt and each of his three extra-point tries. Though it was a 29-yard chip shot, Bass' converted field goal came in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter to keep Buffalo's playoff bid alive. The Bills came into Week 16 as double-digit favorites against a Chargers team missing four of their biggest stars, seemingly positioning them to form a lead and play from ahead. But such positive game script never quite materialized in that one, as the team essentially played down to a far inferior squad. Bass hopes for a different tune at home in Week 17 versus the New England Patriots, virtually finding himself in the same favorable setup as he did in his last time out. With no legitimate weather concerns in Orchard Park on Sunday, Bass should be treated as a top-10 kicking play.

Tyler Bass A Strong Play Against Chargers

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass has provided solid, yet unspectacular results leading into a Week 16 road date with the Los Angeles Chargers. Bass drilled his lone field-goal attempt, a 23-yard boot, and each of his four extra-point tries in last Sunday's 31-10 destruction of the Dallas Cowboys. After logging single-digit fantasy outputs in each of his six games from Weeks 5 through 10, Bass has posted at least seven points in four consecutive games. The Georgia Southern product's 115 fantasy points to date reside 13th amongst kickers. Kicking indoors on a team that situates as substantial favorites and an offense that's discovered its rhythm of late sounds like a recipe conducive to fantasy success on Saturday. Bass can be deployed as a top-five play in this highly advantageous setup.

Tyler Bass A Middling Option Against Cowboys

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass nailed a go-ahead 39-yard field-goal attempt in the fourth quarter last Sunday, which proved to be enough for the team to escape Arrowhead Stadium with a heart-stopping 20-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Bass has been pedestrian from both a real-life and fantasy standpoint in 2023, sinking 20-of-25 field-goal tries for a career-low 80% conversion rate and ranking ordinarily as fantasy's No. 16 kicker in total points scored (108). The 26-year-old lines up on Sunday against a staunch Dallas Cowboys defense, who are giving up the second-fewest fantasy points per game to kickers. It simply hasn't been a prolific type of season overall for Bass, who is barely a top-10 choice in Week 15 with seven single-digit fantasy efforts in his last nine games after starting the year with three double-digit outputs out of his first four outings.

Tyler Bass Remains Worth Deploying

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass has not gotten the job done in fantasy in each of his last three games, totaling nine points with zero field-goal conversions across this interval. Bass' drastic downturn has gone hand in hand with Buffalo's inability to start fast, as they've gotten themselves mired in negative-to-neutral game scripts in each contest since Week 5. The 26-year-old has gone a troubling 1-for-4 on his most recent FG attempts, but wind has played a considerable factor on some of his latest misfires. Fantasy managers may want to go away from Bass due to his recent struggles, but the fourth-year kicker will be difficult to move out of top-five conversations in Week 8 versus the Tampa Buccaneers for his spot in a normally potent offense.

Tyler Bass Looks To Bounce Back Sunday

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass is no longer flawless on field-goal attempts after missing two tries in Week 6's 14-9 win over the New York Giants. Bass couldn't push through a couple of 50-yarders on a fairly windy night in Orchard Park, so there's hardly any cause for alarm here. The 26-year-old has now posted just four fantasy points covering his last two affairs, so he's aiming to rebound on Sunday against the division-rival New England Patriots. The Pats have allowed the second-highest average fantasy points (11.33) to kickers on the campaign. With Buffalo checking as Sunday's largest favorites (-8.5), Bass remains a strong kicking choice in a Bills offense scoring 28.8 points per game.

Tyler Bass A Bankable Option Against Giants

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass may have only been assigned two extra points in Week 5's 25-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he remains a flawless 27-of-27 on all kicking tries in 2023. Buffalo's swashbuckling offense has called for the fifth-fewest field-goal attempts (nine) this year, and the New York Giants have witnessed the third-most PATs made against them. That sounds like a recipe for abundant scoring chances for the Bills and perhaps infrequent FG tries for Bass. Nevertheless, Bass' team should find themselves in the red zone with regularity on Sunday night opposing a banged-up G-Men squad. Keep the 26-year-old kicker in top-10 discussions for Week 6 in an exploitable spot.

Tyler Bass Remains Top-Five Play Overseas

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass is still perfect on all attempts this season, going 9-for-9 on field goals and 16-for-16 on extra points. Buffalo's flourishing offense and Bass' accurate leg have furnished an eight-point fantasy floor over the 26-year-old's first four games. The Jacksonville Jaguars have sacrificed more PATs (10) than FGs (four) en route to allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game (5.50) to the position. Bass' place in such a potent offense keep him in top-five positional territory in Week 5, regardless.

Tyler Bass Ranks Among The Best Versus Miami

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass had a busy first half in last Sunday's 37-3 rout of the Washington Commanders, making good on his first 36-yard attempt of the game. Bass then nailed a 54-yard try right down the middle at the first half's two-minute warning before pushing another 34-yard boot through on Buffalo's last drive of the half following a takeaway. The fourth-year man is now a flawless 17-for-17 on all kicks this season, and next takes on the Miami Dolphins in Week 4. Scoring chances should be bountiful in Sunday's divisional battle, so fantasy managers can lock in Bass arguably as the slate's top kicking selection.

Tyler Bass A Strong Week 3 Play, But Weather May Play A Factor

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass was called upon for just one field-goal attempt, a 29-yarder, in Week 2's 38-10 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. The 26-year-old hit five extra-point tries in the blowout, but he could be summoned for additional FG tries in Week 3 against the 2-0 Washington Commanders. Though, Washington allowed the second-fewest fantasy points per game (4.41) to kickers in 2022. Bass' presence in such a potent offense, however, should maintain his status among the top-five kicking plays for Sunday's clash. He's a perfect 10-for-10 on kicks this season, but fantasy managers should monitor the weather forecast ahead of Sunday's contest with significant rain headed all across the East Coast this weekend.

Tyler Bass Buries Six Kicks Versus Raiders

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass hit his lone field-goal attempt and five extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-10 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. The 26-year-old's Week 2 was not as eventful as his Week 1 when he knocked a game-tying kick off the upright and through to force overtime. Nonetheless, Bass converted a 29-yard boot in the fourth quarter to tack on a few more points during Buffalo's trouncing of the overmatched Raiders. He wasn't needed much in this one otherwise, sinking five other one-point kicks in the easy victory. Bass prepares next for a Week 3 battle with the Washington Commanders.

Tyler Bass - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass hit all four of his kicks in Week 1's loss to the New York Jets. The 26-year-old most notably forced overtime with a banked-in 50-yard field goal in the fourth quarter's waning seconds. After accumulating 13 fantasy points in the season opener, Bass will be back in the mix as one of Week 2's best bets at the kicker position. The fifth-year man figures to see plenty of opportunities in a contest where Buffalo could score a lot of points, and be playing from ahead. Bass is a must-start in all formats in Sunday's home opener.

Tyler Bass Banks In Game-Tying Field Goal Despite Loss

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass hit all three of his field-goal attempts along with an extra-point try in Monday's 22-16 loss to the New York Jets. The 26-year-old knocked a 40-yard try through the uprights after Buffalo's drive stalled out in the red-zone area following a Josh Allen sack. Bass split the sticks once more, this time for 34 yards, near the end of the first half. Finally, he bounced a 50-yarder off the left upright and in to knot the game at 16 points apiece, forcing overtime. It was a perfect night in the box score for the fourth-year kicker, but it could have been a more disappointing evening if not for the fortuitous doink. Bass should be in the running for the top play at his position in a Week 2 tilt versus the Las Vegas Raiders in the Bills' home opener.

Tyler Bass Could Be Busy Against Jets

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass starts his 2023 campaign on Monday night against the New York Jets. The 26-year-old has operated as a bankable option over his three-year Bills career, hitting 85.6% of his field-goal attempts in this span. Bass owns the luxury of functioning from one of the league's premier offenses, and it's worth mentioning Buffalo only went for it on fourth down 13 times a year ago. New York's mostly impenetrable defense relinquished the second-highest fantasy points per game to kickers (8.00) in 2022, so Bass could be summoned quite a bit in this one if the Bills are unable to consistently push the ball into the end zone. In what could be a closely-contested battle, the fourth-year kicker is a top-shelf play at the position.
