Dustin Hopkins Has Recovered From Hamstring Injury

Saturday, May 25, 11:11 AM

Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said that kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has recovered from the torn hamstring that he suffered on Christmas Eve last year against the Houston Texans that sidelined him for the rest of the season and the playoff loss. Despite being recovered from the injury, Hopkins was a notable absence during organized team activities this week. The Browns also have kickers Cade York and Lucas Havrisik on the current roster, but barring injury, the 33-year-old Hopkins figures to be the team's starting kicker in Week 1 of the 2024 regular season. Despite missing the final two games of the regular season last year, Hopkins finished as the No. 12 fantasy kicker by making 33 of his 36 field goal-attempts and 24 of his 26 extra-point tries. He'll be a fringe fantasy kicker in drafts this fall.

Jake Moody A Reliable Play Versus Green Bay

Saturday, January 20, 12:52 AM

San Francisco 49ers kicker Jake Moody will kick off San Francisco's postseason run on Saturday night versus the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round. Moody's rookie season has been a success, even while ranking in the bottom of the league in field goal attempts due to his historic extra-point prowess. In Week 18 versus the Rams, Moody ended a streak of 60 straight extra points converted, an NFL record since the extra-point attempt was moved back to the 15-yard line in 2015. Green Bay's defense has been unspectacular lately, allowing 32 points to Dallas last week, which should put Moody in a position to put points on the board consistent with his regular season performance. The weather is expected to be moderately rainy with wind gusts maxing out at 20 mph and shouldn't be a big issue. DFS players unwilling to spend the extra cash on Justin Tucker should consider Moody a high-floor option, leading the tier below.
