Nick Folk On Fantasy Radar After Strong Start

Thursday, September 21, 12:32 PM

Tennessee Titans kicker Nick Folk made five field goals in the Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints then made two field goals, including a game-winner in overtime, in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He has made all of his field goal and extra point tries through two weeks, placing him on the fantasy football radar. However, the Titans' offense will likely struggle to move the ball against the fierce Cleveland Browns defense in Week 3, making Folk a risky play at the kicker spot. He is the No. 6 kicker in total fantasy points so far, but he carries a boom-or-bust outlook into Week 3 given the matchup.

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.
