McManus ended 2018 having connected on 20 of 25 field goals, with a long of 53, and converting all 35 of his point-after attempts. McManus struggled mightily in 2017, missing from all over the field. His conversion percentage improved only slightly in 2018 -- ranking 26th in the league at 80 percent -- but he was a perfect 18 for 18 inside 50 yards. It was from the outer limits where he struggled, connecting on just two of seven field goals of 50 yards or longer. Most notably, he missed field goals of 62 yards and 51 yards at the end of both halves against Houston. The Temple product still managed to nail game-winners against the Raiders and Chargers, and was one of only three kickers to convert all of his point-after attempts. His opportunities faded down the stretch along with a dinged-up Denver offense, with just two multi-attempt games in the final seven contests of the season. He figures to improve to the extent Denver's offense improves in 2019.
McManus missed a 58-yard field goal attempt as time expired in the first half and drilled two extra-point tries in the Broncos' 27-14 loss to the Raiders on Monday. McManus was brought on for the Hail Mary field-goal attempt after Case Keenum connected with Courtland Sutton for 20 yards down to the Raiders 40-yard line with four seconds remaining in the first half. However, the kick came up short, and McManus wouldn't get another field-goal opportunity the rest of the night. Despite the miss, McManus' 82.6 percent success rate this season (19-for-23) on field goals represents a nice improvement from the 75.0 percent figure he generated in 2017, and his only misses have all come from beyond 50 yards. He'll look to finish the campaign on a strong note versus the Chargers in Week 17.
McManus made all three of his field-goal attempts as well as his lone extra-point try in Saturday night's 17-16 loss to the Browns. McManus converted from 44, 42 and 29 yards on his respective field goals, helping him hit double figures in points for the first time since Week 4.
McManus did not attempt a field goal but made both his extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-14 loss to the 49ers. McManus' mere two points tied his season low. Considering he only boasts 80 points through 13 games, however, fantasy owners should've recalibrated their expectations of McManus -- who averaged about 114 points over the previous three seasons -- by now.
McManus made one of his two field-goal attempts and hit all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Bengals. McManus converted from 29 yards but missed wide left on a 50-yard attempt to begin the game. Through 12 appearances, he's totaled 78 points but hasn't topped six points since Week 7.
