Titans Retain Kicker Nick Folk

Wednesday, March 13, 6:06 PM

The Tennessee Titans re-signed veteran kicker Nick Folk to a one-year, $3.755 million deal on Wednesday, according to a source. The deal can be worth a maximum of $4.13 million through incentives. Although Folk wasn't as productive in fantasy -- he finished as the No. 21 kicker in overall fantasy points -- as he was in 2022 with the New England Patriots, he's been one of the most accurate kickers in the league in recent seasons. The 39-year-old missed just one of his 30 field-goal attempts for a league-best 96.7 percent conversion rate. Folk also missed just two of his 30 extra-point tries in his first year in Tennessee in 2023. The Titans lost All-Pro running back Derrick Henry in free agency, but they added Tony Pollard and receiver Calvin Ridley, so there's certainly potential for Folk to get more chances for field goals and extra points in 2024.

Dustin Hopkins News

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.
