Harrison Butker A Reliable Option Versus Bears

Saturday, September 23, 10:56 PM

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker remains a perfect 7-for-7 on kicks so far on the young season after hitting his lone field-goal attempt and two extra-point tries in Week 2's 17-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old should be a dependable Week 3 start versus the 0-2 Chicago Bears, who have permitted the second-most points (65) in the NFL this year. This contest could see the Chiefs play from ahead, so Butker deserves treatment among the elites at the kicker position. K.C. is forecasted to score more points than other offense in Week 3 in this favorable matchup.

Rodrigo Blankenship News

Buccaneers Waive Kicker Rodrigo Blankenship

Monday, August 21, 6:14 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived kicker Rodrigo Blankenship on Monday. Blankenship lost the kicking battle to Chase McLaughlin in training camp this summer and will now look to latch on with another team before the start of the 2023 regular season. The 26-year-old spent last year with the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals, going 4-for-5 on his field-goal tries and 4-for-5 on extra points in just three total games. As long as Tampa doesn't bring in more competition for McLaughlin to close out the preseason, he should enter Week 1 as the team's starting kicker. McLaughlin, 27, made 83.3 percent of his 36 field-goal attempts and made all 21 of his extra-point tries in 16 games with the Indianapolis Colts in 2022. The kicking position in Tampa won't be as exciting in fantasy now that Tom Brady isn't running the offense in 2023.
