Elliott, who converted three field-goal attempts as a rookie during the Eagles' Super Bowl victory, has looked solid throughout training camp as he enters his second year in the league, Nick Fierro of The Morning Call reports. Elliott is reportedly off to a good start at training camp, which is a good sign after he missed three attempts from 30-39 yards as a rookie last season. Boasting a favorable combination of job security, leg strength and team context, the 23-year-old should be a serviceable fantasy option in 2018 as Carson Wentz (knee) returns to lead an Eagles offense that has plenty of weapons.
Elliott made all three field-goal attempts to go with two of three extra-point tries Sunday in the Eagles' 41-33 defeat of the Patriots in Super Bowl LII. The rookie started the scoring with a 26-yard boot midway through the first quarter and followed it with the missed extra point. From there, he was perfect, putting Philadelphia up by more than a field goal with his 42- and 46-yard attempts in the fourth quarter. The Super Bowl win completes a whirlwind season for the 23-year-old, who, after going undrafted and failing to make the Bengals out of training camp, signed with the Eagles after the injury to Caleb Sturgis in Week 1. The Memphis product completed 26 of 31 field-goal attempts during the regular season and was a perfect 7-for-7 in the playoffs. He is signed through next season.
Elliott made field goals from 35 and 48 yards, but missed a 33-yarder in Monday's 19-10 win over the Raiders. He also converted his lone extra-point try. Elliott had gone four straight games without missing a kick. Though he blew a chip shot Monday, Elliott redeemed himself by breaking a 10-10 tie with the 48-yard boot with 22 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Cowboys, the rookie sports 117 points across 14 games, good for 12th in the league among kickers.
Elliott made field goals from 28 and 20 yards in Sunday's 34-29 win over the Giants, when he also hit all four of his extra-point tries. Elliott's production didn't suffer from the Eagles being forced into a change at quarterback, as his 10 points gave him a fifth double-digit outing on the campaign.
Elliott made all of his three field-goal and four extra-point attempts in Sunday's 43-35 defeat of the Rams. He had plenty warm-up time prior to his first field goal in the second quarter, having already put three extra points through the uprights prior to the 22-yard kick. The rookie's other two field goals were from 41 and 33 yards in the fourth quarter, the latter giving Philadelphia the lead for good. It was the first time since Week 8 that the 22-year-old has had more than one field-goal attempt in a game.
