Younghoe Koo Will Kick In Week 12

Friday, November 24, 1:34 PM

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo (back) upgraded to a full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final Week 12 injury report. Koo will be active and kick for the Falcons despite not practicing on Wednesday with a back ailment. The Falcons even signed kicker Matt Ammendola as insurance earlier this week in case the 29-year-old Koo wasn't able to play this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Koo is one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL, as he's missed just one field-goal attempt and one extra point this year. However, due to the Falcons' sluggish offense and instability at the quarterback position, Koo has mostly been a low-end kicking option in fantasy lineups. Hopefully Desmond Ridder returning under center for Atlanta will help them move the ball more consistently.

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.
