Browns, Dustin Hopkins Agree To Three-Year Extension

Monday, July 15, 6:37 PM

The Cleveland Browns and kicker Dustin Hopkins have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. It's a well-deserved payday for the veteran kicker as he cashes in following the best season of his career. Over 15 games in 2023, he made 33 of 36 field-goal attempts (91.7%) while going 24-for-26 on extra points (92.3%). He ultimately finished as the No. 9 kicker in terms of fantasy points despite missing two games. Hopkins represents a solid draft pick in the later rounds of 2024 fantasy drafts.

Evan McPherson Not Productive Versus Cleveland

Sunday, September 10, 10:02 PM

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Evan McPherson nailed a 42-yard field goal during the loss to Cleveland on Sunday. However, he missed his following try on the next series. In all fairness, McPherson was the only person who put points on the board for the struggling Bengals offense, and the weather conditions weren't ideal, either. While the 24-year-old seemed to take a step backward last season, he's still one of the best kickers in the NFL. Fantasy managers should keep him starting in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens.
