Buccaneers' Nick Folk: Signs with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Folk will sign with the Buccaneers, Peter Schrager of FOX Sports reports.

Folk converted 27 of 31 field goals in 2016, which is a solid campaign in its own right but especially impressive when considering three of his four missed attempts were blocked by the opposition. Meanwhile, Roberto Aguayo, who the Bucs traded up for in the second round of last year's draft, was true on just 22 of 31 attempts in what was ultimately a disappointing campaign for the highly touted kicking prospect. While it's fair to wonder whether Folk's signing was simply a motivational tactic to get the underperforming youngster going, this could turn into an outright competition for the starting job if Aguayo continues to fall under expectations.

Nick Folk: Released by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Folk was released by the Jets on Thursday.

Folk was the Jets' kicker for the past seven seasons. For his career he's converted 81.3 percent of his field goals, including 27 of 31 in 2016. It appears the Jets cut ties with Folk to free up some salary cap room, but it remains unclear who'll be their kicker in 2017.

Jets' Nick Folk: Nails 27 field goals in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Folk converted 27 of 31 field-goal attempts and 24 of 26 extra points during the 2016 season.

Folk had a quietly-solid season for the Jets in 2016. However, given how he did in fact play for the Jets, you never knew what to expect from him on a weekly basis, rendering him unserviceable in most formats. Case in point, look at his numbers from Week 9 and Week 10. In Week 9 against the Dolphins, Folk made three field goals and three extra points only to come back with a clunker (thanks to a missed PAT) the game after. With the team's quarterback situation far from solved, expect more uncertainty out of Folk in 2017.

Jets' Nick Folk: Hits 50-yarder in loss to Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Folk connected on one of two field-goal attempts, both from 50-plus yards, and hit both of his PATs during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Folk was successful on a 51-yard attempt to open the scoring in the first quarter, but his 54-yarder with just over two minutes left in the first half was blocked. He's now had one or zero successful field goals in five of his last six games, and with the struggles of the Jets' offense overall, he's hardly a high-upside fantasy kicking option.

Jets' Nick Folk: Misses lone kick against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Folk was not given a field-goal attempt and missed his only PAT during Sunday's 9-7 loss to the Rams.

The Jets' offense really struggled to move the ball Sunday with Bryce Petty under center, though they hadn't been doing much before then anyway, as Folk had connected on more than one field goal just twice since Week 2. Fantasy owners who are stuck with Folk will have to look for an alternative in Week 11 during the Jets' bye before they take on the Patriots in Week 12.
