Player Outlook
Sanders wasn't quite as good as his breakout season in 2020 when he averaged 10.0 Fantasy points per game, but he did have a quality campaign in 2022 with 26 made field goals and a career-high 41 made extra points. The Dolphins offense was explosive under coach Mike McDaniel, and Miami should score plenty of points again in 2023. Sanders should have plenty of scoring chances, and Sanders is worth drafting with a final-round selection.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Little doing in wild-card loss

    Sanders converted his only extra-point try during Saturday's 26-7 wild-card loss to the Chiefs. Sanders didn't attempt a field goal during Saturday's frigid weather conditions, especially with Miami's offense stalling early. The loss was reminiscent of the Dolphins' regular-season finale loss to Buffalo, another contest in which trailing from the outset cost Sanders a chance to factor into the offense significantly. Still, Sanders is coming off a solid season in which he converted 24 of 28 field-goal attempts, with his only misses coming from 40-plus yards out.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Quiet end to impressive season

    Sanders did not attempt a field goal during Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Bills. He converted both extra-point tries. Sanders had attempted at least two field goals in six of his prior seven games heading into Sunday's divisional loss, but Miami's offense was never put in a position to chase anything less than a touchdown. Across 17 games this season, Sanders converted 24 of 28 field-goal attempts (86 percent) and a career-high 58 of 59 extra-point tries. He'll look to maintain his consistency during the playoffs, beginning with a Saturday road matchup against the Chiefs in the wild-card round.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Bright spot in embarrassing loss

    Sanders converted both of his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try during Sunday's 56-19 loss to Baltimore. Sanders converted field goals from 38 and 27 yards out Sunday, but as the Ravens' lead slowly expanded, Miami was forced to pursue touchdowns more aggressively and foresake the kicking game. As long as the Dolphins are able to keep Week 18's crucial divisional matchup against Buffalo closer, Sanders should see more scoring opportunities. In seven appearances since the Dolphins' bye, Sanders has averaged 2.7 field-goal tries per game.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Perfect in blowout win

    Sanders converted all three of his field-goal tries and all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 30-0 win over the Jets. Sanders wasn't called upon for any difficult kicks in Sunday's win, with his long attempt of the day coming from 37 yards out. He faces a tougher Week 16 matchup against the Cowboys, however, one in which Miami's offense may not be put in such a comfortable position. Since the Dolphins' bye in Week 10, Sanders has attempted at least two field goals in four of five games.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Nails all six PATs

    Sanders converted his only field-goal attempt and all six extra-point tries during Sunday's 45-15 win over Washington. Sanders wasn't called upon to attempt many field goals Sunday, as at no point did the Dolphins' offense stall, but he was money on point-after tries. He faces another matchup Week 14 in which Miami figures to enter as a heavy favorite, with the Dolphins taking on the Titans on Monday.

  • 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.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Misses one kick in win over Raiders

    Sanders converted two of three field-goal attempts and both his extra-point tries during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Raiders. Sanders missed his first field-goal try since Week 2, a 50-yarder, in Sunday's one-score win, but he also converted one FGA from 51 yards out. The veteran has historically struggled from that distance, but he's otherwise ranked among the NFL's most accurate kickers. He could see more field-goal opportunities than usual during Sunday's divisional matchup against the Jets, a team that thrives on creating low-scoring affairs -- New York's defense has held opponents below 20 points on six occasions this season.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Kicker to Sit

    Despite playing on one of the best offenses in the NFL, Sanders is not a great Fantasy kicker. He only has two games this season with at least 10 Fantasy points and none since Week 3. He's only made three field goals in his past seven games. The Raiders have been feast or famine against opposing kickers as three kickers have made at least three field goals and six have made one or less. Given Sanders' track record, I would look to avoid him in Week 11, even at home.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Good on both PATs

    Sanders converted both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 21-14 loss to Kansas City. Sanders didn't log a field-goal attempt during Miami's international Week 9 loss, with the team having been forced into an aggressive gameplan due to an early deficit. After Miami's bye, Sanders will benefit from a more favorable matchup against the Raiders in Week 11.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Kicker to Sit

    Despite playing on one of the best offenses in the NFL, Sanders is not a great Fantasy kicker. He only has two games this season with at least 10 Fantasy points and none since Week 3. He's only made three field goals in his past six games. The Chiefs also are stingy to opposing kickers, ranking No. 2 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to the position. For the season, Kansas City has only allowed two kickers to make multiple field goals and none in the past three games.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Perfect vs. Pats

    Sanders converted his only field-goal attempt and all four extra-point tries during Sunday's 31-17 win over New England. Sanders didn't need to do much during Miami's divisional Week 8 win, but he did put together his sixth consecutive game without a missed kick. He could be presented with more scoring opportunities when the Dolphins take on the Chiefs in Germany in Week 9.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Accurate in primetime loss

    Sanders converted his only field-goal attempt and both extra-point tries during Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Eagles. Sanders has now been perfect in five straight games for Miami, though a game script that saw the team trail the Eagles from the outset on Sunday Night Football wasn't beneficial to his prospects. He could see more scoring opportunities Week 8 versus New England in what should certainly be a more even matchup.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Nails only field-goal try

    Sanders converted his lone field-goal attempt and all four extra-point tries during the Dolphins' 31-16 win over the Giants on Sunday. Sanders continues to benefit from Miami's high-flying offense, with his only missed extra-point attempt having come back in Week 1. The reliable kicker could again be in line for significant PAT opportunities Week 6 against Carolina, though it's worth noting he's only attempted one field goal in his last three appearances.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Again held without a field goal

    Sanders converted both of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 48-20 loss to the Bills. He did not attempt a field goal. Sanders also didn't attempt a field goal during Week 3's 70-20 blowout win over the Broncos, though in that contest he converted 10 extra-point tries. The Dolphins' offense could be in line to return to a more normal game script Week 5 versus the Giants, so Sanders' amount of field-goal attempts could also stabilize.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Money on extra-point tries

    Sanders didn't attempt a field goal during Sunday's 70-20 win over the Broncos. He converted all 10 of his extra-point tries. Sanders finished Week 3 with what will likely be the strangest stat line of his career courtesy of a Miami offense that exhibited complete mastery over a Denver defense that was outmatched in attempting to contain coach Mike McDaniel's inventive scheme. The Dolphins have what promises to be a more competitive affair on deck Week 4 against the Bills. Sanders attempted three field goals in each of Miami's first two games of the season.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Costly mistakes in narrow win

    Sanders converted one of three field-goal tries and all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday night's 24-17 win over the Patriots. Sanders had a 49-yard attempt blocked in the third quarter, then missed wide left from 55 yards out late in the fourth quarter with a chance to essentially secure Miami's victory. Neither of Sanders' failed field-goal tries were easy attempts, of course. He will have a chance to get right Week 3 versus the Broncos.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Near perfect in narrow win

    Sanders converted all three of his field-goal attempts and three of four extra-point tries during Sunday's 36-34 win over the Chargers. Sanders' lone PAT miss with less than two minutes left in the fourth quarter nearly overshadowed what was otherwise an outstanding Week 1 performance, but the Dolphins managed to secure the narrow win. Two of Sanders' field goals came from 40-plus yards out. Sanders doesn't project for as busy of a game versus the Patriots on Sunday Night Football in Week 2.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Clutch to end regular season

    Sanders converted all three of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 11-6 win over the Jets. Sanders accounted for all of Miami's offensive points during the Week 18 divisional win, a victory that allowed the team to clinch a spot in the wild-card spot. Across 17 appearances in the 2022 regular season, Sanders converted 26 of 32 field-goal tries and 41 of 44 extra-point attempts.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Costly miss in narrow loss

    Sanders missed his only field-goal attempt and converted all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 23-21 loss to New England. Sanders failed to convert a 51-yard attempt in a divisional loss that saw Miami fall by just two points, now putting him at just 1-for-5 on 50-plus yard field-goal tries this season. He will attempt to record more production versus the Jets in Week 18.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Misses one field goal in loss

    Sanders converted two of three field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries during Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Packers. Sanders missed his first field goal since Week 9 in Sunday's disappointing loss, just one game after he went 3-for-3 on field goals in a narrow game against the Bills. On deck for Week 17 is a must-win divisional contest against the Patriots, and after Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) threw three interceptions against Green Bay, coach Mike McDaniel could trend towards more conservative playcalling.
