Jake Elliott A Must-Start In Week 3

Thursday, September 21, 10:18 AM

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in Week 3 on Monday night. The 28-year-old is on pace to smash last year's production. Through two games, he has already converted 6-of-7 field goals, with three of them being from 50 or more yards away. For context, Elliott converted just 20 field goals in 2022. Philadelphia has to settle for more three-point attempts than last year, much to the fantasy benefit of the veteran kicker. Tampa Bay's defense has not let up a ton of points through two games, but the matchup matters little when it comes to the Eagles' offense. Elliott should have plenty of chances to convert kicks and carries a high fantasy-scoring floor and ceiling heading into the prime-time matchup. Elliott is a must-start option in Week 3.

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.
