Gostkowski made two of his three field-goal attempts en route to logging eight points in Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Jaguars.

Gostkowski made both of his field goals en route to logging nine points in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Texans. Gostkowski, who logged a fantasy-friendly 156 points in 2017, continues to profile as one of the league's more reliable options at his position, given his favorable team context.
Gostkowski made two of his three field-goal attempts in Friday's preseason loss to the Panthers. Gostkowski appeared a bit shaken up after making a tackle in the Patriots' second preseason game, but that didn't amount to anything as he played Friday and remains the only kicker on the team's roster. Gostkowski is coming off a 2017 campaign in which he logged 156 points, just two points shy of Greg Zuerlein's league-high mark. Heading into the coming campaign, Gostkowski will continue to profile as one of the league's more reliable fantasy kickers, given his favorable team context.
Gostkowski (arm) went to the locker room after making a tackle on a first-quarter kickoff Thursday against the Eagles, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports. According to Giardi, Gostkowski shook his right arm while he was examined by the training staff. The Patriots can be tight-lipped with the health of their players, but the nature of the injury is sure to leak out at some point.
Gostkowski continues to earn the praise of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick as training camp ramps up, Hayden Bird of the Boston Globe reports. Gostkowski was the subject of significant praise from Belichick during a media session at training camp last week, as the coach explained how pleased he's been with Gostkowski's performance since he replaced Adam Vinatieri in 2006. Gostkowski finished second among kickers in points last season, cashing in 37 of 40 field-goal attempts en route to his fifth 150-point season in the last six years. Despite struggling in the playoffs, he has a strong argument to be the first kicker selected in fantasy drafts this summer, benefitting from a high-powered New England offense led by Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.
