Gonzalez is the lone placekicker on the Cardinals' 90-man roster. Gonzalez was awful in his season and a half with the Browns, converting just 17 of 25 field-goal attempts (68 percent) and 28 of 31 PATs (90.3 percent). He looked better with the Cardinals over the final month of last season, with both of his misses on field goals coming from beyond 50 yards. There are better options available at the end of fantasy drafts, but Gonzalez could work his way into the streaming conversation if coach Kliff Kingsbury and quarterback Kyler Murray quickly turn the Arizona offense around.
Gonzalez connected on nine of 14 field-goal attempts and eight of 11 point-after tries in seven games between the Browns and Cardinals in 2018. His final numbers weren't great, but Gonzalez bounced back well from rough Weeks 1 and 2 with the Browns, when he missed three of five field goals and two of five PATs. During his five-game run in place of the Cardinals' Phil Dawson (hip) to wrap up the season, Gonzalez misfired on just three kicks (two 50-plus-yard field goals and one extra point) en route to 5.2 points per game. Gonzalez is the only placekicker in Arizona under contract beyond this season, meaning competition likely will arrive via free agency, the draft and/or the return of a healthy Dawson.
Gonzalez made one of his two field-goal attempts and missed his only extra-point attempt in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Gonzalez tallied just three of a possible seven points Sunday, though his missed field goal was from over 50 yards. Since joining the Cardinals in Week 13, Gonzalez has made four of five extra-point attempts and four of six field-goal tries.
Gonzalez converted both of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 40-14 loss to the Falcons. Gonzalez didn't attempt a field goal Sunday, as the Cardinals struggled to move the ball with much efficiency. The second-year kicker has made 75 percent of his kicks since joining Arizona's active roster.
Gonzalez made one of two field-goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Gonzalez converted a 22-yard attempt in the fourth quarter after hitting the left upright on a 54-yard try earlier in the contest. It is Gonzalez's first miss as a Cardinal, and he is now 5-for-9 on field-goal attempts this season in stints with the Browns and Cardinals.
