Player Outlook
McLaughlin averaged the 16th-most Fantasy points per game in 2023 in a season where the Buccaneers offense surprised many. If Tampa's offense has any regression after losing offensive play caller Dave Canales, McLaughlin will have fewer scoring opportunities. There are better options on Draft Day.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Staying with Tampa Bay

    McLaughlin has agreed to terms on a three-year deal to remain with the Buccaneers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. During the 2023 regular season, McLaughlin made 29 of his 31 field-goal attempts for a success rate of 93.5 percent, a pace that broke the Buccaneers' single-season record. Looking ahead, the 27-year-old kicker will continue to work behind an offense that will feature QB Baker Mayfield and WR Mike Evans, both of whom are slated to remain with Tampa Bay in 2024 after agreeing to re-up with the franchise ahead of free agency.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Rare miss to close out season

    McLaughlin connected on a 43-yard field-goal attempt, hit the left upright on a 50-yard try and made both extra-point attempts in the Buccaneers' 31-23 divisional-round loss to the Lions on Sunday. The normally reliable McLaughlin had a rare long-distance hiccup, with the miss counting as only his third since the start of the regular season and second from 50-plus. Despite the small blemish on an otherwise perfect day, McLaughlin was stellar for the Buccaneers in the 2023 regular season and postseason, going a combined 33-for-36 on field-goal attempts and 38-for-38 on PATs. Having amply outplayed the one-year, $1.1 million deal he played on in 2023, McLaughlin is a virtual lock to garner a lucrative multi-year deal -- almost certainly from Tampa Bay -- this offseason.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Stellar outing in playoff win

    McLaughlin drilled field-goal attempts of 28, 54 and 48 yards and also connected on both his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night. McLaughlin put together a career-best 93.5 percent success rate on field goals and was perfect on 33 PATs across 17 regular-season games, so Monday night's performance was simply an extension of his outstanding campaign. McLaughlin's 54-yarder, which extended the Buccaneers' lead to 13-0 early in the second quarter, pushed his tally from 50-plus yards to 8-for-9 since the beginning of the regular season. McLaughlin could be in for another very busy day in Sunday's road divisional-road matchup against the Lions, given the expectations of a high-scoring game and Ford Field's pristine kicking conditions.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Productive to close out season

    McLaughlin did not attempt any extra points but drilled field goals of 36, 57 and 39 yards in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday. The highly accurate kicker fittingly finished the season in perfect form and with one of his signature long-distance kicks. McLaughlin generated a career-best 93.5 percent success rate (29-for-31) on field goals and a perfect 33-for-33 on PATs during the Buccaneers' 17 regular-season contests. Perhaps the most impressive part of his statistical profile was his 7-for-8 tally on kicks of 50-plus yards, and he'll undoubtedly be relied upon again against the Eagles in Monday night's wild-card matchup.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Disappointing day in Week 17

    McLaughlin did not attempt any field goals and made his only extra-point try in the Buccaneers' 23-13 loss to the Saints on Sunday. After multiple productive games, McLaughlin was a victim of the Buccaneers' especially poor offensive performance, one that saw them fail to put any points on the board until the fourth quarter. McLaughlin's single point on the afternoon was his lowest output of the season and snapped an eight-game streak of multiple PATs. However, the veteran kicker should have a much better chance at a productive performance in a Week 18 road matchup against the Panthers that shapes up as a must-win game for Tampa Bay.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Another busy day in win

    McLaughlin connected on field-goal attempts of 24, 31 and 51 yards and also converted all three extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 30-12 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. The game marked McLaughlin's second straight double-digit point tally, with Sunday's 12 points besting Week 15's total by two. The 51-yard make also was McLaughlin's sixth in seven attempts from 50-plus yards this season, giving him an elite 85.7 percent success rate from that range. McLaughlin should continue to benefit from an improving Buccaneers offense in a Week 17 home divisional matchup against the Saints.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Double-digit points in win

    McLaughlin drilled field-goal attempts of 39 and 46 yards and made all four of his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 34-20 win over the Packers on Sunday. McLaughlin turned in another unblemished day and pushed his success rate on field goals to an impressive 92 percent for the season. The veteran kicker also kept his PAT ledger perfect while improving to 29-for-29 on the season in that department, and another busy day could await in the Week 16 home battle against the Jaguars.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Another long kick in win

    McLaughlin connected on field-goal attempts of 55 and 38 yards while also drilling all three extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 29-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday. McLaughlin opened the scoring on the afternoon with his impressive 55-yarder in the first quarter, the kicker's fifth field goal of 50+ yards in six tries this season. McLaughlin also pushed his perfect PAT tally to 25-for-25 with his trio of extra points Sunday, but he'll be operating in what should be far from the climate-controlled conditions he enjoyed versus the Falcons when the Bucs travel to take on the Packers in Week 15.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Limited to PATs in win

    McLaughlin did not attempt any field goals and made all three of his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 21-18 win over the Panthers on Sunday. McLaughlin did not get any field-goal tries for the second time in three games, although this time that unfolded in victory. The veteran kicker has been true on 41 of the 43 total kicks he's attempted through 12 games, including a perfect 22-for-22 tally on extra-point attempts. McLaughlin will have the benefit of kicking in a dome environment during Sunday's Week 14 divisional road clash against the Falcons.

  • 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.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Limited to PATs in loss

    McLaughlin did not record any field-goal attempts and made both his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 27-14 loss to the 49ers on Sunday. McLaughlin had been on a nice roll coming into Sunday's game, having logged multiple field-goal attempts in six straight contests. However, the 49ers defense did a number on Tampa Bay's offense most of the afternoon, causing two turnovers, forcing three punts and booting the Bucs off the field on downs in two other instances. Nevertheless, McLaughlin should have a solid chance for a resurgence in a Week 12 road matchup against a Colts defense that figures to provide much less resistance to Baker Mayfield and his weapons.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Kicker to Start

    McLaughlin is coming off an amazing game against Houston in Week 9 with three made field goals, including a 55-yarder, and four PATs. He did not miss a kick. This week, he gets to face a Titans team that allows the most Fantasy points to opposing kickers. Five kickers have made at least three field goals against Tennessee this season, and seven of eight kickers have scored at least 8.0 Fantasy points. I like McLaughlin as a low-end No. 1 Fantasy kicker in Week 10.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Productive in high-scoring loss

    McLaughlin made field-goal attempts of 35, 49 and 55 yards and drilled all four extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 39-37 loss to the Texans on Sunday. One week after logging just two field-goal attempts and having one blocked, McLaughlin was the other end of the spectrum in terms of opportunity. The high-scoring affair led to McLaughlin racking up a season-high 13 points while connecting on his fourth field goal of 50+ yards this season. McLaughlin has proven quite the find for Tampa Bay, missing just two of 30 total kicks and offering stellar long-range accuracy. McLaughlin could be in for another busy afternoon in a Week 10 home matchup against the Titans.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Long field goal in Week 8 loss

    McLaughlin connected on a 57-yard field goal but had a 50-yard attempt blocked in the Buccaneers' 24-18 loss to the Bills on Thursday night. He made his only extra-point try. McLaughlin had the elation of tying a career best with his 57-yard field goal partly offset by the blocked attempt, but he continues to be a highly reliable real-world scoring option for the Buccaneers. That's slightly less the case from a fantasy perspective, considering McLaughlin has logged as many as three field-goal attempts just once this season and has attempted two extra points overall over the last three games. The fifth-year pro could have more opportunities to put points on the board in a Week 9 road matchup against a Texans defense that is beatable enough to give up some yardage but sufficiently stout so as to force some field-goal attempts.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Six points in Week 6 loss

    McLaughlin made field-goal attempts from 33 and 36 yards and did not attempt any extra points in the Buccaneers' 20-6 loss to the Lions on Sunday. The Buccaneers offense offered McLaughlin scant opportunities to put points on the board, but he made good on the two chances he did see. Both of the veteran kicker's made field goals were close calls to varying degree, and McLaughlin now boasts a 90.0 percent success rate on his 10 field-goal attempts and has made all seven point-after tries heading into a Week 7 home divisional clash against the Falcons.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Solid showing in Week 2 win

    McLaughlin made two of three field-goal attempts (26 and 25 yards) and all three extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 27-17 win over the Bears on Sunday. He also had a 40-yard field-goal attempt blocked. The block came on the first play of the second quarter and served as the only blemish on McLaughlin's afternoon, and season, thus far. McLaughlin's two field-goal tries Sunday were essentially chip shots, but he has already proven his long-distance prowess once this season by nailing a 57-yarder in the Week 1 win over the Vikings. McLaughlin may have fewer overall opportunities Week 3, however, as a tough Eagles defense comes to town for a showdown next Monday night.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Perfect showing in Week 1 win

    McLaughlin drilled field-goal attempts from 36 and 57 yards and also connected on both his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 20-17 win over the Vikings on Sunday. The Bucs couldn't have asked for a better regular-season debut performance from their new placekicker, with McLaughlin particularly impressing with his critical 57-yard make that snapped a 17-17 tie with 5:10 remaining and proved to be the final margin of victory. McLaughlin could potentially have plenty of games with 4-to-6 total kick attempts if a Buccaneers offense that undeniably has talent but a somewhat inconsistent quarterback in Baker Mayfield helming it continues to perform in similar fashion to Sunday. McLaughlin could have even more opportunities during a Week 2 home matchup against a Bears team that allowed a short-handed Packers squad to ring up 34 points against them Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Stellar finish to preseason

    McLaughlin connected on field goals of 47, 27, 38 and 48 yards while also drilling both extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 26-20 preseason win over the Ravens on Saturday night. McLaughlin commemorated his victory over Rodrigo Blankenship in their summer job battle by validating the coaching staff's decision with a perfect showing. The fifth-year pro could be a valuable fantasy asset if he can improve on his career 78.8 percent field-goal conversion rate, considering he'll be attached to a Buccaneers offense that boasts superior pass-catching talent but is helmed by arguably only a slightly above-average quarterback in Baker Mayfield.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Lone kicker on roster

    Tampa Bay waived Rodrigo Blankenship on Monday, leaving McLaughlin as the team's only kicker, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. McLaughlin and Blankenship had been competing to succeed Ryan Succop, who the Bucs let go in March. Assuming no other kickers are brought in by the team, McLaughlin is slated to handle the Week 1 assignment, with his fantasy upside this coming season tied to how the team's offense fares while being helmed by either Baker Mayfield or Kyle Trask.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Limited to extra points Friday

    McLaughlin converted both extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 27-17 preseason loss to the Steelers on Friday. He did not record any field-goal attempts. McLaughlin's competition for the placekicker job, Rodrigo Blankenship, successfully handled the Buccaneers' lone field-goal attempt from 35 yards out. Consequently, the battle between the two kickers seemingly remains as tight as ever heading into another week of training camp practices ahead of next Saturday's road preseason matchup against the Jets.
