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.

Evan McPherson Not Productive Versus Cleveland

Sunday, September 10, 10:02 PM

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Evan McPherson nailed a 42-yard field goal during the loss to Cleveland on Sunday. However, he missed his following try on the next series. In all fairness, McPherson was the only person who put points on the board for the struggling Bengals offense, and the weather conditions weren't ideal, either. While the 24-year-old seemed to take a step backward last season, he's still one of the best kickers in the NFL. Fantasy managers should keep him starting in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens.
