News: 1 day agoTucker signed a four-year extension with the Ravens on Monday.
Spin: Tucker had another All-Pro season last year after going 35-for-37 on field-goal attempts, including a perfect 6-for-6 from 50-plus yards. The 33-year-old also set an NFL record by nailing a 66-yard game-winner Week 3 in Detroit. Per Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, Tucker's new contract is worth $6 million per year with $17.5 million guaranteed, which makes him the highest-paid kicker in the league once again after Chris Boswell had recently tied Tucker with a four-year, $20 million deal ($12.5 million guaranteed). Tucker was already under contract for two more years, so his extension will keep him in Baltimore through the 2027 campaign.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Tucker has played 10 seasons in the NFL and has never finished worse than 11th in fantasy points in any of them. Believe it or not, he's never finished a season in the top spot, though his third-place finish in 2021 marks his fifth top five in in the last six seasons. He was, as usual, the league's best kicker, nailing 35-of-37 attempts (league-high 94.6%) despite an average distance of 40.5 (sixth highest). He also made all 32 of his extra points. Tucker has shown no signs of slowing down as he enters his age-32 season and remains locked in as an elite fantasy kicker.
