Parkey connected on three field goals (33, 41 and 48 yards) in the Bears' 25-20 victory over the Vikings on Sunday. After missing four kicks (two extra points and two field goals) last week, Chicago went for two-point conversions after each of its touchdowns in this game. However, when called upon, Parkey was perfect on all three field-goal attempts, so he ended up with his second game with at least nine points over his last three contests. If Chicago continues to attempt two-point conversions after touchdowns, it would significantly limit Parkey's upside.
Parkey will not be replaced after a lackluster performance Sunday according to head coach Matt Nagy, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun Times reports. "Everybody in this room has had a bad day," Nagy said Monday. Parkey struggled in Sunday's win over the Lions, missing both field-goal attempts as well as two of his four extra-point tries. However, Nagy remains confident in the fifth-year pro, who has spent time with four different teams. Parkey is now 13-of-18 on field-goal attempts this season, which is the third-worst percentage this season of kickers currently on a roster.
Parkey connected on a pair of field goals along with five extra points in the Bears' 41-9 victory over the Bills. While scoring 11 points, Parkey posted his second-best performance of the season while breaking a streak of three games with seven points or fewer. With just one game in which he scored fewer than six points, he has emerged as a high-floor option at kicker.
Parkey converted a field goal and three extra points in Chicago's 24-10 victory over the Jets. Parkey missed one-of-two field-goal attempts, keeping him from having a decent fantasy performance. After being a strong fantasy option over the first-four games of the season, he's now made just two field goals over his last three games, and he's been a below-average performer during that span.
Parkey connected on his only field-goal attempt while converting four extra points in Chicago's loss to New England. Parkey has been held to fewer than six points just once all season, and he's become a high-floor weekly lineup option.
