Gostkowski made 37 of his 40 field-goal attempts during the 2017 regular season, en route to logging 156 points, which trailed only Greg Zuerlein of the Rams, who recorded 158 points in 14 games. Gostkowski, whose career high in points is 158 (in 2013), continues to benefit from working behind New England's Tom Brady-helmed offense. The 2006 fourth-rounder, who turns 34 on Jan. 28, is under contract with the Patriots next season and slated to earn a base salary of $3,200,000. Looking ahead to 2018, Gostkowski will continue to profile as one of the league's more reliable fantasy kickers, given his favorable team context.
Gostkowski made his only field-goal attempt (from 21 yards) in Sunday's 26-6 win over the Jets. Gostkowski logged six points in the contest, which brought his regular-season total to a fantasy-friendly 156. That's a mark surpassed only by Greg Zuerlein of the Rams, who logged 158 points in 14 games.
Gostkowski made both of his field-goal attempts (from 46 and 33 yards) in Monday night's 27-20 loss to the Dolphins. Gostkowski -- who added two extra points in the contest -- is now averaging exactly 10 points a game over the course of 13 contests, a pace that puts him second in scoring among NFL kickers, behind only Greg Zuerlein of the Rams (148 points).
Gostkowski made all three of his field-goal attempts (50, 31 and 39 yards) in Sunday's 23-3 win over the Bills en route to recording 11 points in the contest. Gostkowski, who made a 50-yard attempt Sunday, now has 122 points over the course of 12 games. Heading into next Monday's game against the Dolphins, he's poised to surpass his 2016 season total of 127 points, with four more regular-season games on tap for the Patriots.
Gostkowski made all five of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 35-17 win over the Dolphins. For just the second time this season, Gostkowski did not attempt a field goal, as the Patriots hit paydirt five times and were not stalled to the point that they turned to their kicker, who hit a career-best 62-yarder in Week 11's win over the Raiders in Mexico City. Chances are, Gostkowski will have added point-scoring opportunities on the road against Buffalo in Week 13.
