Murray didn't have an opportunity for any field-goal attempts for the first time since his Buccaneers 2017 debut in Week 6. However, he remained perfect on extra points for the season by drilling all three attempts. Murray continues to be one of the most consistent kicker options in fantasy circles, having two field goals all season and posting an impressive 2-for-3 tally from 50 yards and beyond. He'll look to boost his production in a Week 15 home tilt against the Falcons.
Fairbairn has missed four kicks (three FGA, one XPA) over the last two weeks, including a couple of tries inside the 50-yard line in last week's loss to the Titans. Head coach Bill O'Brien gave his beleaguered kicker a vote of confidence following the loss to the Titans and will no doubt have to answer questions this week about the former Lou Groza award winner out of UCLA. At this point, replacing the kicker is not going to matter much. The 4-9 Texans are still in the hunt for a postseason berth, but their chances are at less than one percent entering Week 15 against Jacksonville's top-ranked scoring defense (15.5 PPG).
After winning the past two games as time expired, Boswell came through in the clutch again, kicking his fourth field goal of the night with just 42 seconds remaining. He'll face New England, which has allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing kickers, in Week 15. In the two games he has faced them in his career, including a 2016 playoff game, Boswell has missed 2-of-6 field-goal tries and 1-of-2 PATs.
There's a chance Prater could've seen an extra field-goal attempt or two, but quarterback Matthew Stafford tossed two interceptions in Tampa Bay territory during the second quarter. Regardless, Prater did all he could to bounce back from an uncharacteristically inaccurate outing last week in Baltimore. He'll now square off against the Bears in Week 15, a team Prater has converted exactly two field goals against in three meetings dating back to the start of the 2016 season.
Nugent took advantage of one of Chicago's best offensive performances of the season as he posted the second-best fantasy performance by a Bears kicker this season. He could be a sneaky fantasy option, as Chicago kickers have been provided with multiple field goal opportunities in five of their last six games.
Vinatieri's fantasy prospects were bleak enough with a weak Colts offense supporting him, but the weather in Buffalo certainly won't do him any favors. Heading into Sunday, the veteran owns an 11-for-20 mark on career field-goal attempts in Orchard Park, by far his worst success rate at any opposing venue.
Hauschka has shown the ability and leg strength to kick through the winds of New Era Field all season, plus the Colts give up more points than anyone. In other words, there's still some scoring to be had for the Bills. Just know that the weather forecast and a rookie starting at quarterback could limit Hauschka's attempts compared to normal game-day conditions.
Atlanta dominated the time of possession, which limited the Saints' offensive opportunities. Lutz was also deprived of a field-goal attempt in the final minute of the game when quarterback Drew Brees threw an ill-timed interception in the red zone to seal the loss. It was a tough game for owners relying on Lutz in their fantasy playoffs, but the Saints' kicker should be presented more scoring chances in Week 15 against a Jets defense that ranks in the bottom 10 in the league in points allowed.
Santos was released by the Chiefs earlier this season due to his groin problem, which flared up again in Sunday's defeat to the 49ers. Now done for the season, the Bears have signed veteran Mike Nugent to replace the Brazilian.
The AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November stayed hot Sunday with another double-digit effort. Tucker connected on field goals of 38, 46, and 51 yards, and an outburst from the Ravens' offense afforded him five extra-point tries. He has eight consecutive games with multiple field goals, including three straight games with three field goals apiece. Tucker has also converted each of his last five attempts from 50+ yards. He'll kick in a tough environment Sunday night in Pittsburgh, but Tucker still remains an elite kicking option regardless of where the game is played.
