Tucker has converted a league-high 33 field goals from 50 yards or longer since entering the NFL in 2012, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports. Tucker already has an argument for the title of best kicker in league history, though he can't match Adam Vinatieri's track record of big moments in the playoffs. The 28-year-old's unmatched combination of leg strength and accuracy has made him a fixture near the top of the fantasy leaderboard for kickers, despite being attached to a Baltimore offense which struggled the past three seasons. The team hopes a healthier Joe Flacco along with a new group of wideouts will improve the situation, but it won't come as any surprise if the Ravens once again end up leaning on Tucker and a strong defense to stay competitive. Tucker has repeatedly proven to be the rare kicker worth drafting even when expectations for his team's offense are low.
Tucker finished the season converting 34 of 37 field goals and going 39-for-39 on extra point attempts. It was another stellar season from Tucker, who converted over 90 percent of his field goal attempts for the second year in a row and fourth time in his career. Tucker was also among the league's elite from distance, checking in with five field goals of 50-or-more yards, but that was a dropoff after going 10-for-10 from that distance in 2016. Still, Tucker is clearly one of the most bankable options at kicker regardless of format thanks to his high volume of attempts coupled with a unique ability to convert from almost any distance. Tucker, 28, is under contract for two more years.
Tucker made all three of his field-goal attempts (30, 39 and 36 yards) and both his extra-point tries in Saturday's 23-16 win over the Colts. Tucker has missed just three of 71 total kicks this season, accounting for the seventh-best point tally league-wide.
Tucker made field goals from 31 and 43 yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Browns, when he also connected on all three of his extra-point tries. Tucker has now tallied at least eight points in 10 straight games, a span during which he's missed just one kick. His 121 points currently see him ranked sixth in the category.
Tucker made a 47-yard field goal as well as all five of his extra-point tries in Sunday night's 39-38 loss to the Steelers. Tucker has now tallied at least eight points in nine straight games, bringing his total to 112 on the campaign, good for fifth leaguewide.
