News: 2 days agoZuerlein made both of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 13-8 loss to the Falcons.
Spin: Zuerlein connected from 27 yards out in the second quarter and from 46 in the third. New York's other two points were scored on the Jets' league-leading third safety of the season, but the offense failed to get into the end zone. Zuerlein has attempted 25 field goals but just eight PATs, making all but one of each.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Zuerlein has been the definition of a high floor fantasy kicker over the years, finishing as high as first but never lower than 13th in points over the last six seasons. Once susceptible to extremely volatile accuracy, Zuerlein has settled in as a solid and consistent kicker in recent seasons. Since 2020, he has made 82.5% of his field goal attempts, which looks better when you consider that his average distance of 40.8 yards is fifth-highest during the span. He also ranks second in the NFL in FG attempts during the last three seasons. The Jets offense should be much better with Aaron Rodgers under center, which helps solidify Zuerlein as a viable fantasy starter.
