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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Posts seven in easy win

Bass made his only field-goal try and all four extra-point attempts in Sunday's 31-14 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Bass's accuracy has been fantastic just about all season, as he's made 24 of 28 field-goal attempts and is perfect on 42 extra points. Wise fantasy managers have used Bass to ride the coattails of a strong Buffalo offense the past two seasons. If that's helped result in a deep playoff run into Week 16, the bummer is it's a road trip to New England this week. If you can get past that awful matchup, the Bills get a nice finish to the season with home games against the Falcons and Jets.

Flawless in tight loss

Bass made both of his field-goal attempts and all three extra-point tries during Sunday's overtime loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Bass's nine points were the most he's put up since Week 10, as he was needed often during the Bills' second-half scoring surge. Bass now sits in a tie for fifth among NFL kickers with 107 points on the season. While he kicks for a bad weather team that has three home games left on the slate, that's likely offset by the team's ease of schedule, as Buffalo faces Carolina, Atlanta and the Jets in three of the final four weeks.

Costly miss in divisional loss

Bass was 1-for-2 on field-goal attempts and converted his only extra-point try in Monday's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: The fourth-quarter miss -- while understandable given the outrageous winds -- really hurt the Bills, as on their next (and final) drive they were well into New England territory but now needed a touchdown to win instead of a field goal, had Bass converted on the previous drive. The four-point output represents Bass's second-lowest game of the season, while his 98 points on the campaign sits tied for fifth among kickers. He'll get a better opportunity to score more and not have winds blowing the ball all over the stadium when the Bills meet the defending champion Buccaneers in Week 14.

Flawless in easy win

Bass made his only field-goal attempt and all four extra-point tries in Thursday's 31-6 win over the Saints.

Analysis: Like the rest of his team, Bass got back on the horse following a forgettable performance in a blowout loss to the Colts in Week 11. Bass is 20-for-23 on field-goal attempts and a perfect 34-for-34 on extra-point tries this season and sits third among kickers in scoring heading into the weekend.

Roughest outing of season

Bass missed both field-goal attempts and converted his only extra-point try during Sunday's 41-15 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: The field-goal misses were Bass's first misfires since he missed his only attempt all the way back in Week 2, and to be fair, one of them Sunday was a 57-yarder that doinked the upright. Plain and simple, it just wasn't Bass's day (or any other Bill for that matter in the humiliating loss), and he remains a top kicker for fantasy purposes. The one-point outing did drop him down to third in league scoring at 87 points, though he remains second among kickers behind only Nick Folk.

Nov 22, 2021 10:58 AM EST


Notches nine points

Bass made his only field-goal attempt as well as all six of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 45-17 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Bass converted from 29 yards on his lone field goal, which along with a bevy of PATs helped bring his season total to 86 points, placing second league-wide among kickers.
