Ravens | Justin Tucker boasts strong leg

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 10:32:30 -0700

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker claims he could hit a field goal of more than 84 yards in the ideal conditions. "We think about these things really specifically, if you send me out there you have a reason for it -- because they think I can make a kick," Tucker said Thursday, Aug. 4, on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. "To me it doesn't matter where I just have to hit a good ball. If conditions are prime -- like last season, we opened up in Denver, the weather was warm and the field was nice, you're up in altitude so the ball just carries and in pregame I hit the cross bar from 85. So if the situation is just prime, maybe 84 and a half yards."

Fantasy Tip: We felt you may have needed a moment of comic relief this fine day. While Tucker -- with no pressure -- may have the leg for it, this would take the most improbable of circumstances to come to fruition. That said, he's arguably the best fantasy kicker heading into 2016 drafts.

Ravens | Justin Tucker receives long-term deal

Fantasy Tip: Tucker has been one of the better kickers in the NFL over the past few years. The Ravens may have seen a dip in their production on offense, but Tucker could still be a decent option in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Justin Tucker gives Ravens ultimatum

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 16:35:38 -0700

Baltimore Ravens K Justin Tucker has vowed not to re-sign with the team after this season if the two sides cannot come to an agreement on a long-term deal before the Friday, July 15 deadline, according to his agent Rob Roche. The franchise tag for kickers this season is $4.5 million, which is what Tucker would be earning if he can't secure his desired long-term contract prior to Friday afternoon.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker has a real gripe here. Not only has he been one of the most consistent kickers in fantasy over the past few seasons, he's actually the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history. By comparison, Baltimore has been offering him less money than what Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby makes. Regardless of where he plays, Tucker is still one of the upper echelon legs to lean on in any fantasy league.

Ravens | Justin Turner may want top kicker deal

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:10:33 -0700

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker likely wants to receive a better deal than the four-year, $17.2 million deal New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski signed last year. The Ravens have until July 15 to sign Tucker to a long-term deal or he will play under the one-year franchise tender of $4.572 million. In the opinion of CSNMidAtlantic.com's Clifton Brown, the Ravens want to sign Tucker to a new deal and Tucker wants to stay.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker made 33 of his 40 field goals in 2015 and is one of the better fantasy kickers available. He should be a weekly starting option in all leagues this season.
