Rosas signed his contract tender with the Giants on Thursday. The Giants placed a second-round tender on Rosas, and he'll stick with the team for the 2020 campaign while earning a $3.3 million salary. As such, the 25-year-old stands to enter the season as the Giants' lead placekicker. He's coming off an unimpressive 2019 showing, having converted just 12 of 17 field-goal tries across 16 games, but he did previously log an excellent 2018 season (making 32 of 33 field-goal attempts).
The Giants are using a second-round tender on Rosas, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. The restricted free agent tender will cost $3.3 million, which suggests Rosas has job security for 2020. The 25-year-old kicker has converted 82.7 percent of field-goal attempts and 91.5 percent of PATs in three NFL seasons, sandwiching two subpar campaigns around an excellent showing in 2018. The Giants may be undecided on a long-term commitment.
Rosas converted his only field-goal try and both extra-point attempts during Week 17's 34-17 loss to the Eagles. Rosas converted 12 of 17 field-goal attempts and 35 of 39 extra-point tries across 16 games in 2019. Coming off a rough campaign, it's possible that the Giants will bring in offseason competition for the third-year pro.
Rosas missed his lone field-goal attempt and converted all five extra-point attempts during Sunday's 41-35 overtime win over the Redskins. The 24-year-old pushed his only field-goal opportunity wide left from 53 yards during the fourth quarter, making it two straight games without a made field goal. Rosas has endured a rough 2019, converting only 11 of 16 field goals and 33 of 37 extra points.
Rosas made four of five extra-point attempts in Sunday's 36-20 win over the Dolphins. This was the fourth time Rosas wasn't called upon to kick a field goal this year, and he's only attempted one on seven other occasions. With limited chances and uncharacteristic inefficiency -- he's hit 11 of 15 field goals (73 percent) and 28 of 32 extra points (88 percent) -- his ceiling is low for fantasy purposes, even against the Redskins in Week 16.
