Santos was successful on field-goal attempts of 36 and 45 yards and also drilled both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 34-32 loss to the Falcons. Santos proved to be the cure for what ailed the Buccaneers' kicking game after his Week 11 arrival, making nine of 12 field-goal attempts and all 17 of his extra-point tries across seven games. The 27-year-old now heads into unrestricted free agency, but he would presumably be a strong candidate for return, given Tampa's difficulty in finding stability at the kicking position during general manager Jason Licht's tenure. If Santos does indeed don a Bucs uniform again in 2019, he'll make for a strong fantasy prospect, considering the team's talented offense could nevertheless experience some growing pains while acclimating to what will likely be a new system.
Santos made field-goal attempts of 37 and 45 yards while misfiring on a 52-yard try in the Buccaneers 27-20 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. He also drilled both of his extra-point attempts. The 27-year-old's one miss was relatively excusable considering the distance, and Santos had a solid eight-point afternoon overall by making his other four kicks. The five-year veteran is 7-for-10 on field goals and has drilled all 15 of his extra points since joining the Bucs in Week 11. He'll be a serviceable fantasy option once again in the Week 17 finale against the Falcons and likely has done enough to be considered as a leading candidate for the placekicking role in 2019.
Santos made field-goal attempts of 21 and 28 yards and did not have any extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 20-12 loss to the Ravens on Sunday. Santos had likely prompted at least some concern after missing two field goals in Week 14, but he alleviated those worries to an extent by drilling two makeable tries Sunday. He was shut out of the extra-point category, however, as the Bucs opted to go for two after their lone touchdown of the day. The weather conditions and defensive matchup should both be at least slightly more favorable in a Week 16 matchup versus the Cowboys, which should afford Santos an uptick in scoring opportunities.
Santos missed field-goal attempts of 46 and 40 yards while hitting both of his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 28-14 loss to the Saints on Sunday. Santos had enjoyed a perfect first two games in a Buccaneers uniform heading into Sunday, but his unblemished record was sullied fairly early on against the Saints. Santos' early-second-quarter 46-yard attempt hit the right upright, while his 40-yard try to end Tampa's first drive of the second half went wide right altogether. The veteran kicker at least did maintain his perfect tally on extra points, but given the team's struggles to find consistency at the kicker position in recent seasons, his two misses are likely more cause for concern than they would be on other clubs. Santos could find opportunities for redemption at a premium Week 15, as the Bucs draw an unenviable road matchup versus the stingy Ravens defense.
Santos drilled his sole field-goal attempt from 35 yards and also connected on all three extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 24-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Santos continued his flawless streak to open his Buccaneers career, as he's now 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 11-for-11 on extra-point tries over his first three games in Tampa. Granted, the 27-year-old has yet to be tested from distance, as the longest of Santos' three field-goal attempts has come from just 41 yards. Nevertheless, the stability he's brought to the position since taking over for Chandler Catanzaro has been noticeable, and he should continue enjoying a fair share of scoring opportunities over the last four contests of 2018.
