Blankenship hit a 40-yard field goal and all four extra-point attempts in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Bengals. Blankenship was perfect for a third straight week, but this was the first time in the undrafted rookie's career that he made fewer than two field goals in a game. It was a solid fantasy day for the Georgia product nonetheless, as he extended his league-high point tally to 63, outpacing Justin Tucker by four. The Colts have a Week 7 bye, which leaves fantasy managers in a tough position on whether to drop him or utilize a bench spot for him. There's only a handful of kickers who qualify to be rostered through a bye week, and Blankenship could fit the mold with seven of the Colts' next eight games being played in a dome.
Blankenship made all five kicks -- three field goals and two extra points -- in Sunday's 32-23 loss to the Browns. Blankenship has only missed one field goal from less than 40 yards this season, and he connected on all three from that range Sunday. Colts faithful should be excited to have some stability at the position after legend Adam Vinatieri's disappointing 2019 season, as Blankenship leads the league with 56 points through five games. Even with the Colts' offense being underwhelming, Blankenship is producing and should be universally rostered and started Week 6 against the Bengals.
Blankenship hit all four field goals and his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 19-11 win over the Bears. The undrafted rookie has been a solid contributor for the Colts, as he's made all nine extra points this season and 12 of 14 field goals (86 percent). Blankenship's work from distance has been solid, too, hitting four of five kicks from beyond 40 yards. It's tough being tied to the Colts' mediocre offense, but a Week 5 matchup against the Browns should yield fantasy dividends, as the Browns have allowed the eighth-most total yards (402) in the league.
Blankenship made two of three field-goal attempts and all four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 36-7 win over the Jets. Blankenship converted field goals from 42 and 41 yards Sunday, but he hit the right upright from 41 yards on his miss. It was still a productive day for the 23-year-old, and he's 8-for-10 on field-goal attempts and 8-for-8 on extra-point attempts through three games. A matchup with the Bears in Week 4 represents the toughest defensive test for the Colts in the young season.
Blankenship connected on all four field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 28-11 win over the Vikings. Blankenship missed a 30-yard field goal in Week 1, but the undrafted free agent bounced back with perfection against Minnesota, including a 44-yard field goal. The Colts have moved the ball well with Philip Rivers under center, and they draw another favorable matchup in Week 3 with the Jets coming to town.
