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.

Dustin Hopkins Traded To Cleveland, Cade York Waived

Monday, August 28, 2:20 PM

Veteran kicker Dustin Hopkins lost the Los Angeles Chargers starting kicker job to Cameron Dicker this preseason and is being traded to the Cleveland Browns for a 2025 seventh-round pick. Cade York has been waived in a corresponding move. Hopkins made 27 of his 30 field goal attempts as a Charger in 2021 and 2022, but a lower-body injury held him out of 12 games last season. If the Browns' offense takes a step forward in Deshaun Watson's second season with the organization, Hopkins could have plenty of upside in fantasy football. York could find a new home in short order.
