Player Outlook
This is expected to be Boswell's ninth season as the Steelers kicker. After finishing sixth among all kickers on a per-game basis in 2021, Boswell predictably finished league-average in the same category in 2022 because of the team's massive offensive overhaul. Odds are the offense still won't be explosive enough to give Boswell more than 30 field goal attempts and a bunch of extra points, so he's pretty easy to avoid drafting. At least two other kickers in his own division are better options.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Bounces back in 2023

    Boswell completed 29 of 31 field-goal attempts while making 27 of 28 extra-point tries during the 2023 campaign. Boswell had one of the worst seasons of his career in 2022 by converting just 71.4 percent of his field-goal tries over 12 games. However, he won a kicking competition during training camp this year to retain his job, and he rewarded the Steelers with a bounce-back performance. The 32-year-old converted six of his seven attempts from at least 50 yards, and he's now made 21 attempts from at least 50 yards over the past three seasons. Boswell signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Steelers in August of 2022, so he'll presumably be back with the team for his age-33 season following a solid showing this year.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Productive in Week 17

    Boswell converted all three of his field-goal attempts while making all three of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 30-23 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. Boswell didn't have any field-goal attempts over 39 yards during Sunday's matchup, but he was still perfect on six kicks for a second consecutive week. The 32-year-old has been reliable for most of the 2023 campaign, converting 28 of 30 field-goal attempts while making 25 of 26 extra-point tries.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Perfect against Cincinnati

    Boswell converted both of his field-goal attempts while making all four of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 34-11 win over the Bengals on Saturday. Boswell missed one of two extra-point tries during last week's loss to Indianapolis, but he bounced back against the Steelers' AFC North rival Saturday. The 32-year-old has been relatively accurate in 2023, making 25 of 27 field-goal attempts while converting 22 of 23 extra-point tries.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Struggles in limited action

    Boswell made one of two extra-point tries during the Steelers' 30-13 loss to the Colts on Saturday. Boswell had made all 17 of his extra-point tries heading into Saturday's matchup, but he had a kick hit the right upright following Pittsburgh's first touchdown of the game. Despite his limited action Saturday, he's still been relatively accurate in 2023, making 23 of 25 field-goal attempts while converting 18 of 19 extra-point tries.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Suffers rare miss Sunday

    Boswell converted just one of his two field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try in Sunday's 24-10 loss versus the Cardinals. Boswell's miss from 45 yards out late in the third quarter was just his second miss this season and his first since Week 8 versus Jacksonville, when he missed from 61 yards away. Otherwise, he's been incredibly accurate, held back only by a Pittsburgh offense that's averaging just 16.0 points per game. The Steelers will square off against a solid defense in Week 14 versus the Patriots, so Boswell won't be a great fantasy option despite his effectiveness.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Makes three field-goal attempts

    Boswell converted all three of his field-goal attempts while making his lone extra-point try during the Steelers' 16-10 win over the Bengals on Sunday. Boswell was limited to just one field-goal attempt during last week's loss to Cleveland, but he saw plenty of work during Sunday's victory as the Steelers' offense managed to move the ball better. The 32-year-old has now made 21 of 22 field-goal attempts this year while converting all 15 of his extra-point tries.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Limited work against Cleveland

    Boswell converted his lone field-goal attempt while making his lone extra-point try during the Steelers' 13-10 loss to the Browns on Sunday. Although Boswell was perfect once again during Sunday's matchup, he didn't have many opportunities to contribute during the low-scoring matchup. The 32-year-old's accuracy hasn't been a concern over the first half of the 2023 campaign, with his main limitation coming from his relative lack of opportunities.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Makes three field goals Sunday

    Boswell converted all three of his field-goal attempts while making both of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 23-19 win over the Packers on Sunday. Boswell had two attempts from over 40 yards during Sunday's matchup, but he was perfect once again to help lead the Steelers to the narrow win. The 32-year-old has been perfect in eight of his nine appearances this season, with his lone missed field-goal attempt coming on a 61-yard attempt against Jacksonville in Week 8, though it's worth noting that he made the initial 56-yard try in that situation before it was negated due to a penalty. In total, Boswell has converted 17 of 18 field-goal attempts while making all 13 of his extra-point tries this season.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Perfect against Tennessee

    Boswell converted both of his field-goal attempts while making both of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 20-16 win over the Titans on Thursday. Boswell had his first missed field-goal attempt of the season last week on a 61-yard attempt, but he took care of business with some manageable kicks in primetime. Over the first eight games of the 2023 campaign, he's made 14 of 15 field-goal attempts while converting all 11 of his extra-point tries.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Misses 61-yard attempt in loss

    Boswell made one of two field-goal attempts while converting his lone extra-point try during the Steelers' 20-10 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. Boswell was perfect on the season heading into Sunday's Week 8 matchup. While he initially made a 55-yard field-goal attempt to close out the first half, it was nullified by an offensive penalty, and he missed the ensuing 61-yard try. Despite the miss, Boswell has still had an impressive season when the offense has put him in a position to attempt field goals. He's now converted 12 of 13 field-goal attempts while making all nine of his extra-point tries in 2023.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Makes 53-yard field goal in win

    Boswell converted his lone field-goal attempt while making all three of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 24-17 win over the Rams on Sunday. Boswell struggled with his accuracy during the 2022 campaign but has gotten off to a strong start in 2023, making all 11 of his field-goal attempts while converting all eight of his extra-point tries over the Steelers' first six games. He also made his fourth field-goal attempt of at least 50 yards during Sunday's Week 7 win. The 32-year-old's overall fantasy value has depended on the success of the Steelers' offense, but he's been reliable when called upon early in the year.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Stays perfect in Week 5

    Boswell converted all three of his field-goal attempts during the Steelers' 17-10 win over the Ravens on Sunday. The Steelers' offense largely struggled once again Sunday, but Boswell put the team on the board in the second quarter by making a 43-yard field-goal, and he also drilled two field-goal attempts in the fourth quarter. Boswell had to win a kicking competition in the preseason to retain his job after making just 71.4 percent of his field-goal attempts last year. However, heading into the Steelers' Week 6 bye, he's converted all 10 of his field-goal attempts while making all five of his extra-point tries this season.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Perfect again Sunday

    Boswell made all three of his field-goal attempts while converting both of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 23-18 win over the Raiders on Sunday. Following a regular-season opener in which the Steelers fell behind early, Boswell has seen his workload increase over the next two weeks. He had a season-high three field-goal attempts during Sunday's primetime win and was perfect once again, including a season-long make from 57 yards. Boswell has converted all five of his field-goal attempts while making all five of his extra-point tries over the first three weeks of the 2023 campaign.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Perfect in victory

    Boswell converted both of his field-goal attempts while making both of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 26-22 win over the Browns on Monday. Boswell didn't see much work during the Steelers' blowout loss in the regular-season opener, but he converted two field-goal attempts from at least 50 yards during Monday's primetime victory. Boswell has had nine attempts from 50-plus yards in each of the past two seasons, and it was encouraging to see him make both of his attempts Monday. The 32-year-old converted just 71.4 percent of his field-goal attempts last year but has had a solid start to 2023 despite seeing limited work over Pittsburgh's first two games.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Makes lone kick in blowout loss

    Boswell made his lone extra-point try during the Steelers' 30-7 loss to the 49ers on Sunday. The Steelers' offense was unable to generate much production during Sunday's regular-season opener, and Boswell didn't have any field-goal attempts in the blowout loss. However, he still made his lone kick after winning the starting placekicking job during the offseason. After an inefficient 2022 in which he made just 71.4 percent of his field-goal attempts, he'll attempt to bounce back in 2023.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Perfect once again

    Boswell converted his lone field-goal attempt while making all three of his extra-point tries during Thursday's 24-0 preseason win over Atlanta. Boswell didn't appear in the Steelers' preseason opener but has been effective since then, making all nine of his kicks over the last two games. B.T. Potter missed his lone kick -- a 43-yard field-goal attempt -- in the fourth quarter Thursday, so Boswell appears to be the favorite to open the regular season as the Steelers' placekicker.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Perfect against Buffalo

    Boswell converted both of his field-goal attempts while making all three extra-point tries during Saturday's 27-17 preseason win over Buffalo. Boswell didn't play during last weekend's preseason opener since rookie B.T. Potter handled placekicking duties, but the veteran served as the team's kicker against Buffalo and was perfect on five kicks. Boswell converted just 71.4 percent of his field-goal attempts last year, and it appears to be a tight battle for a roster spot between the 32-year-old and Potter ahead of the regular season.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Doesn't play in preseason opener

    Boswell didn't play in Friday's 27-17 preseason win over the Buccaneers. The Steelers signed B.T. Potter as an undrafted free agent during the offseason to compete with Boswell for the starting placekicker job, and the former got the first chance to contribute during the preseason. Potter converted both of his field-goal attempts while making all three of his extra-point tries in the win, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Boswell get a chance to kick as the preseason progresses.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Ends season on high note

    Boswell converted both of his field-goal attempts while making all three of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 28-14 win over the Browns on Sunday. Boswell had missed at least one field-goal attempt in three of his four appearances leading up to Sunday's regular-season finale, but he was perfect against Cleveland to help the Steelers finish the year with a winning record. The 31-year-old missed five games in 2022 due to his groin injury, but he appeared in 12 matchups and made 20 of 28 field-goal attempts while converting all 18 of his extra-point tries. Boswell made 92.3 percent of his field-goal attempts over the three seasons prior to 2022 and re-signed with the Steelers on a four-year deal in August, so he'll likely continue to serve as Pittsburgh's kicker next year despite his 71.4 percent field-goal conversion rate this season.

  • Steelers' Chris Boswell: Makes four kicks in primetime

    Boswell converted three of four field-goal attempts while making his lone extra-point try during the Steelers' 16-13 win over Baltimore on Sunday. Boswell had a 48-yard field-goal attempt hit the right upright late in the second quarter Sunday, but he managed to make three total field goals, including a 51-yarder in the third quarter. Although he matched his highest total of field goals made in a single game this season, he's now missed at least one field-goal attempt in three of his four appearances since returning from a groin injury. During those four games, he's made six of 10 field-goal attempts while converting all seven of his extra-point tries.
