  • Nick Folk K | TEN

    Titans' Nick Folk: Converts long field goal

    Folk made his only field-goal attempt and both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Panthers.

    Folk wasn't called upon much, but he delivered a 53-yard field goal just before halftime to put the Titans up by two touchdowns. He's now made four of his five attempts from more than 50 yards away and is 22-for-23 on field goals this season.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Bounces back in Week 12 loss

    McLaughlin converted field-goal attempts of 21 and 24 yards while also drilling both his extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Colts.

    McLaughlin had been limited to just two PATs in the Week 11 loss to the 49ers, so Sunday represented a welcome bump in opportunity. McLaughlin now boasts a career-high 90.5 percent (19-for-21) success rate on field-goal attempts this season, and he's yet to miss any of his 19 extra-point tries. However, the Buccaneers' struggles on offense continue to cap his overall production, although a seemingly favorable matchup awaits in Week 13 in the form of a visit from the lowly Panthers.

  • Jake Elliott K | PHI

    Eagles' Jake Elliott: Sends game to OT with 59-yarder

    Elliott converted four extra points and made a game-tying 59-yard field goal with 20 seconds remaining in regulation in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over the Bills.

    The Eagles had advanced as far as the Buffalo 34-yard line on their final drive before a sack and a pair of false starts pushed them back seven yards and gave Elliott quite a tough task, but he managed to convert under pressure through the wind and rain to keep his team alive. He's now 6-for-7 from beyond 50 yards this season, though the Eagles have been better at getting into the end zone of late, cutting into his fantasy value. He's averaged 0.5 made field goals over the last six games after averaging 3.2 over his first five contests.

  • Eddy Pineiro K | CAR

    Panthers' Eddy Pineiro: Converts both kicks

    Pineiro made his only field-goal attempt and only extra-point try in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Titans.

    Pineiro hit a 50-yard field goal and has now made 33 of 37 total kicks this season. However, with the Panthers offense still struggling to move the ball consistently, Pineiro has been limited to single-digit points in every game thus far.

  • Tyler Bass K | BUF

    Bills' Tyler Bass: Second straight double-digit outing

    Bass was 2-for-4 on field-goal attempts and made all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 37-34 overtime loss to the Eagles.

    While it was a nice fantasy performance put forth by Bass, it was the misses that proved costly to the Bills in a loss that could ultimately cost them a playoff spot. One was a blocked kick, and the other was a 48-yard attempt. While he hasn't been awful, Bass's current 78.3 percent rate on field goals would be a career low in what has overall been a fine career by the fourth-year kicker out of Georgia Southern. On a brighter note, two of Bass's five double-digit outings this season have come in the past two games, both under new offensive coordinator Joe Brady. Bass is currently tied for ninth in scoring among kickers.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Perfect in win over Jets

    Sanders converted both of his field-goal attempts and all four extra-point tries during Friday's 34-13 win over the Jets.

    Sanders has now converted a field-goal try of 50+ yards in back-to-back games after having not done so through the first nine weeks of the season. He has another favorable matchup on deck in Week 13 against the Commanders.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Quiet in low-scoring affair

    McPherson converted his only field-goal attempt and his only extra-point try in Sunday's 16-10 loss versus the Steelers.

    On a day in which Cincinnati was only able to muster 222 yards of total offense, McPherson was predictably a non-factor for the most part. He knocked through a 47-yard field goal with just over two minutes remaining in the game to bring the Bengals within six points, but they couldn't recover his onside kick, and Pittsburgh was able to kneel the remainder of the game away. Cincinnati's offense projects as one of the worst in the league without starting quarterback Joe Burrow, so fantasy managers would probably be wise to look elsewhere for a kicker for the rest of the year.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Makes three field-goal attempts

    Boswell converted all three of his field-goal attempts while making his lone extra-point try during the Steelers' 16-10 win over the Bengals on Sunday.

    Boswell was limited to just one field-goal attempt during last week's loss to Cleveland, but he saw plenty of work during Sunday's victory as the Steelers' offense managed to move the ball better. The 32-year-old has now made 21 of 22 field-goal attempts this year while converting all 15 of his extra-point tries.

  • Cowboys' Brandon Aubrey: Stays perfect on FGs

    Aubrey connected on a 52-yard field-goal attempt and converted four of five extra point attempts in a 45-10 rout of the Commanders on Thanksgiving.

    The rookie kicker has missed PATs in back-to-back games and has shanked three in total on 36 attempts through 11 games, but Aubrey remains perfect on FGs, extending his NFL record to begin a career to 22 straight makes. With the Cowboys' offense firing on all cylinders, however, he's seen fewer field goals in recent weeks, limiting his fantasy ceiling heading into the Week 13 meeting with a Seattle team that's given up 22.6 points a game, 22nd in the league.

  • Rams' Lucas Havrisik: Another shaky performance

    Havrisik connected on one of two field-goal attempts and made four of five extra-point tries during Sunday's 37-14 victory against the Cardinals.

    Havrisik sailed a 50-yard field goal attempt wide right in the second quarter, and while he did connect on a 24-yard attempt later in the game, he also pushed a PAT wide right in the fourth quarter. The missed kicks made little impact in a blowout victory, but won't help inspire confidence in Havrisik's job security heading into a Week 12 contest against the Browns and their imposing defense.
