Justin Tucker Should Remain In Lineups In Week 18

Friday, January 5, 5:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker may not have attempted any field goals in Week 17 but was able to produce a respectable fantasy performance. He was able to make all eight of his extra-point attempts. That was his first game without attempting a single field goal since Week 4 and just the second one of the season. In Week 18, the offense is going to be a shell of itself while plenty of the starters get a well-deserved rest week after locking up the first seed in the AFC. This also means that Tucker should get plenty of opportunities when the offense inevitably stalls against a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that is fighting for its playoff hopes.

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.
