Player Outlook
Succop joined Tom Brady in moving to Tampa in 2020, and that has translated in a lot more time worrying about making extra points than field goals for the efficient Buccaneers offense. He led the NFL in extra points made and attempted in 2022 and should see similar usage this year. If some of those TDs turn into field goal attempts, Succop could make for an intriguing Fantasy option, but for now he's on the outside looking in of being draftable in 14-team leagues or smaller.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Remains in heated job battle

    Succop, who went 7-for-7 on field-goal attempts in Thursday's joint practice with the Dolphins, remains in a very close competition with the equally impressive Jose Borregales for the placekicker job, Andrew Crane of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The veteran and Borregales have typically been alternating days where they serve as the sole placekicker in practice, and each seemingly continues to run neck-and-neck with the other. Succop's perfect day Thursday followed a 6-for-7 performance by Borregales on Wednesday, but both kickers have had their share of unblemished and near-perfect efforts thus far. Succop seemingly enjoyed an advantage coming in due to his incumbent status, but if each player performs very similarly during preseason games, the fact Succop's cap hit of $4.5 million significantly outpaces Borregales' $870,000 figure could be the tiebreaker.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Healthy and competing in camp

    Succop, who dealt with an undisclosed offseason injury, has been participating fully in practice since the start of training camp and is attempting to hold off Jose Borregales for the starting placekicker job, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Succop's 83.3 percent accuracy on field goals last season left something to be desired, and his 70.0 percent success rate from 40-49 yards was his lowest in that range since 2014. Succop is therefore going to have to fight for his roster spot this summer, and although the 35-year-old did go a perfect 6-for-6 in Wednesday's practice, Borregales has gone a combined 14-for-16 himself over his first two kicking sessions.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Getting competition this summer

    Succop is expected to compete with Jose Borregales for the starting placekicker job in training camp, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Succop finished 23rd in field-goal percentage in 2021, going 25-for-30 for a success rate of 83.3 percent. The veteran has undoubtedly been a key to the team's success over the last two seasons, and he produced the second-highest point tally of his career (131) in 2021. However, the 35-year-old's accuracy on field goals saw a seven-percentage-point drop compared to 2020, and the Buccaneers are clearly high on Borregales' potential after putting him on the practice-squad protected list every week last season before signing him in January to a reserve/future contract that keeps him on the books through 2023.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Closes season with nine points

    Succop drilled field-goal attempts of 45 and 31 yards, missed wide right on a 48-yard try and connected on all three PATs during the Buccaneers' 30-27 loss to the Rams in their NFC divisional-round matchup Sunday. Succop's miss came early in the second quarter but loomed large later, considering the Buccaneers' final margin of defeat. The veteran otherwise was productive in the season-ending loss and drilled nine of his 10 postseason kicks following a reasonably successful regular season in which he posted the second-highest point tally of his career (131). Succop is under contract for 2022 at a cap hit of $4 million, but if the Tampa Bay offense is helmed by a quarterback other than Tom Brady, the 35-year-old could see his fantasy value take a hit.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Makes all five kicks Sunday

    Succop connected on his sole field-goal attempt from 34 yards out and drilled all four extra-point attempts during the Buccaneers' 31-15 wild-card win over the Eagles on Sunday. With the Buccaneers offense operating at near-peak efficiency, Succop only was called upon for one field-goal try. The seven-point tally wasn't much to write home about for fantasy managers rolling with Succop in postseason contests, but he could be afforded more field-goal opportunities when Tampa Bay goes up against the Rams' tough defense in Sunday's divisional-round matchup.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Makes seven of eight in finale

    Succop drilled field goals of 39 and 40 yards, missed a 46-yard attempt short and converted all five extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 41-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday. The 11-point effort to close out the regular season was a boon for fantasy managers rolling with Succop in any Week 18 championship games, and it qualified as his second double-digit point tally in the last three weeks. Succop's 46-yard miss did snap a streak of eight straight field-goal makes for the veteran, and the 83.3 percent success rate he finished with in that category qualified as his lowest in a full season since 2017. Nevertheless, the Buccaneers will hope the 35-year-old is as locked in during the upcoming postseason as he was during last season's championship run, when he went 9-for-9 on field-goal attempts and 12-for-13 on extra-point tries over four games.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Perfect in Week 17 win

    Succop converted field-goal attempts from 27 and 39 yards and also drilled his two extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 28-24 win over the Jets on Sunday The veteran kicker missed an opportunity at even more productive day when the Buccaneers went for two points following their final touchdown. Succop now has drilled six straight field-goal attempts to up his success rate in that category to 85.2 percent, inching him closer to the impressive 90.3 percent figure he posted during the team's 2020 championship season.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Bounces back with prolific day

    Succop connected on field-goal attempts of 36, 43, 21 and 48 yards and also made both his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 32-6 win over the Panthers on Sunday. The 14 total points was a season high for the veteran and only his third double-digit tally of the campaign. Succop had been completely blanked on the stat sheet in the 9-0 loss to the Saints in Week 15, so to label Sunday's resurgence a particularly timely breakout is an understatement. Despite the favorable matchup for the Buccaneers' offense in Week 17 against the Jets, Succop may still be the beneficiary of multiple field-goal opportunities stemming from stalled drives, as Mike Evans (hamstring, reserve/COVID-19) may miss another contest and therefore leave Tom Brady with a thin receiving corps once again.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Complete blanking in loss

    Succop missed his only kick, a 45-yard field-goal attempt, wide left in the Buccaneers' 9-0 loss to the Saints on Sunday night. One would have gotten very good odds before the season on Succop suffering a blanking on the stat sheet at any point in 2021, but that's precisely what unfolded Sunday night in a shocking shutout loss for the defending champions. One of several reasons for the significant struggles of the Buccaneers' offense against the Saints was the in-game injuries suffered by multiple key players, the most serious being Chris Godwin's season-ending ACL tear. With Tampa Bay set to operate short-handed to some degree for the remaining three games of the regular season, Succop could be the beneficiary in the form of a few more stalled drives than usual culminating in field-goal opportunities.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Perfect on five kicks

    Succop drilled field-goal attempts of 23 and 24 yards and also made all three extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 33-27 overtime win over the Bills on Sunday. Succop was perfect on all kicks for the third time in four games, with his unblemished tally pushing his field-goal success rate back up to 85.0 percent. He's attempted well over two times more extra points than field goals due to the efficiency of the Buccaneers offense, but he retains plenty of upside going into a Week 15 divisional showdown against the Saints.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Totals six points in win

    Succop connected on a 31-yard field-goal attempt and drilled three of four extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Succop inched his success rate on field goals to 83.3 percent with his one make Sunday, but he missed his third extra-point try of the season late in the first quarter following the Buccaneers' second touchdown of the afternoon. His occasional misfires aside, Succop continues to be a coveted weekly option in all formats due to his connection to a Tampa Bay offense that's now scored at least 30 points in three straight contests.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Busy, perfect in win

    Succop made his sole field-goal attempt from 25 yards out and drilled all five extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Colts on Sunday. The Buccaneers' offense's efficiency capped Succop's overall production, but it was encouraging to see the veteran turn in his second consecutive perfect effort. Succop actually hasn't missed on a field-goal try since Week 7, inching his success rate in that category back up to 82.4 percent. That figure still leaves plenty of room for improvement, but Succop continues to hold plenty of fantasy appeal due to his attachment to Tampa Bay's offensive machine.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Seven points in loss

    Succop converted field-goal attempts from 25 and 31 yards and one of two extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 29-19 loss to Washington on Sunday. The veteran kicker missed his second extra-point try of the season, but he upped his success rate on field goals to 76.9 percent with his two makes. Succop is averaging the same seven points he recorded Sunday on a per-game basis this season and should have plenty of opportunities in a Monday night Week 11 matchup against the Giants.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Limited to extra points in loss

    Succop did not attempt a field goal and drilled all three extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 36-27 loss to the Saints on Sunday. The veteran kicker failed to log a field-goal attempt for the third time this season and second time in the last three games. Succop's three-point output was also a low-water mark on the campaign, as the Buccaneers offense played an atypically uneven game against a feisty Saints defense. A Week 10 date with the vulnerable Washington defense following the Week 9 bye may help push Succop back up to his usual levels of production.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Contributes eight points in win

    Succop missed a 43-yard field-goal try wide right, drilled a 22-yard attempt and connected on all five PATs in the Buccaneers' 38-3 win over the Bears on Sunday. The veteran kicker has now missed one field-goal try from every range above 20-29 yards, which has knocked his accuracy to a lowly 72.7 percent (11 attempts). He is an impressive 29-for-30 on extra-point tries and remains attached to one of the most prolific offenses in the league, however, keeping his fantasy value high headed into a dome game against the Saints in Week 8.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Limited to extra points in win

    Succop did not attempt any field goals and drilled all four extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 28-22 win over the Eagles on Thursday night. The veteran kicker had a relatively easy and mostly pressure-free night, and he was automatic on all four point-after attempts. There will be games such as Thursday's during which the efficiency of the Buccaneers' offense caps Succop's fantasy upside, but he still has a solid 45 points through six games heading into a Week 7 home matchup versus the Bears a week from Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Another busy day Sunday

    Succop made his only field-goal attempt (42 yards) and drilled all six extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 45-17 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. Succop enjoyed a perfect day after missing either a field-goal or extra-point attempt in each of the last three games. Punter Bradley Pinion was also notably brought on to attempt a 60-yard field goal that couldn't find the uprights as time expired in the first half, as that attempt was deemed to clearly be outside Succop's range. The veteran kicker has been productive for fantasy managers despite the aforementioned trio of misfires, as he's garnered a solid 41 points through five games.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Highly productive in close win

    Succop drilled field goals of 29, 44, 27 and 48 yards, missed a 36-yard attempt wide right and made his only extra-point try in the Buccaneers' 19-17 win over the Patriots on Sunday night. Succop was one of the Buccaneers' best offensive weapons on a night when the Patriots defense seemed to play with an extra sense of urgency against team legend Tom Brady. The veteran kicker had his busiest game of the season yet in terms of field goals, and his 48-yarder in the rain with 1:57 remaining proved to be the difference in the contest. Succop did miss a field-goal attempt for the second straight game, and unlike a Week 3 misfire from 55 yards out, Sunday night's came from the very makeable distance of 36 yards. Nevertheless, the 35-year-old remains a solid fantasy asset going into a Week 5 home matchup against the Dolphins that could afford a robust amount of scoring opportunities.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Six total points in loss

    Succop made a 26-yard field goal, misfired on a 55-yard attempt and drilled all three extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 34-24 loss to the Rams on Sunday. Succop's miss is excusable to an extent given the distance, and he otherwise was perfect on the day. The veteran remains a strong week-to-week option irrespective of his underwhelming showing Sunday, which largely was circumstantial. He'll look to bounce back with a more robust fantasy tally in a Week 4 road battle against the Patriots.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Busy on extra points in win

    Succop did not log any field-goal attempts and converted six of seven extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 48-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Through two games, the extreme efficiency of the Buccaneers' offense -- and in the case of Sunday, the defense's ability to also put the ball in the end zone off pick-sixes -- has worked against Succop's fantasy utility, with the veteran attempting just one field goal thus far, a Week 1 game-winning kick. Going into the season, there was a reasonable chance Succop's chances of putting three points on the board would dry up a notable amount in 2021, considering that Tom Brady working with a full season and postseason of experience in an aggressive downfield passing scheme was bound to lead to plenty of touchdowns. Nevertheless, there will still be weeks where Succop is called on for multiple field-goal attempts, and one such instance could certainly come as soon as a Week 3 road showdown versus a stingy Rams defense.
