Michael Badgley Re-Signs With Lions

Thursday, February 22, 7:16 PM

Free-agent kicker Michael Badgley has returned to the Detroit Lions by signing an undisclosed one-year deal with them on Thursday, according to his agent. Badgley only appeared in four games for the Lions in 2023, going 4-for-4 on his field-goal tries while making 13 of his 15 extra-point attempts. The 28-year-old spent most of the season on the practice squad before he replaced Riley Patterson for the final four games of the regular season and the playoffs. In total, he made all seven of his field goals and went 24-for-26 on his extra points last year. Badgley isn't just going to be handed the starting kicker job in 2024, most likely having to compete with another kicker that Detroit brings in this offseason.

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.
