  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Staying in Atlanta

    The Falcons and Koo agreed to terms on a five-year, $24.25 million contract Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    After a rough start to his career with the Chargers in 2017 -- he made just three of six field-goal attempts and was cut after four games -- Koo was out of the NFL until the Falcons brought him on October 2019. Since then, he's been a modicum of consistency, striking true on 87 of 94 field-goal attempts and 78 of 82 point-after tries in 40 games. Instead of becoming a restricted free agent, Koo will stick in Atlanta for the foreseeable future.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Doesn't miss in season finale

    Koo made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

    Koo showed off his range, capping off the Falcons' first two offensive drives with field goals from 48 and 54 yards out. If there was ever a knock on the fourth-year kicker, it was his lack of consistency from 40-yards and beyond, but he put those notions to rest with two impressive kicks to end his 2021 campaign. Koo finished the season 27-for-29 (93 percent) and a perfect 30-for-30 on extra points. He signed a one-year contract with the Falcons ahead of the 2021 season, so he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and is expected to be a sought-after commodity after connecting on 64 of 68 field-goal attempts over the past two seasons.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Perfect once again

    Koo connected on both of his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try during Sunday's 29-15 loss to the Bills.

    Koo capped off a 10-play, 65-yard drive with a 28-yard chip shot to the cut the Bills' lead to 14-5 with 10 minutes left to go in the second quarter. He also added a 24-yarder as time expired in the first half to give the Falcons a 15-14 lead going into halftime. Snowy conditions and Atlanta's sporadic offense once again diminished Koo's fantasy potential, but he hasn't missed a kick since Week 11 and remains one of the most accurate and reliable kickers in the league.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Another perfect outing

    Koo connected on both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 20-16 win over the Lions.

    Koo capped off a seven-play, 43-yard drive with a 53-yard field goal that tied the game at 10 with just over a minute left in the first half. It was Koo's first 50-plus yard make since Week 8, and he's now 3-for-4 on the season from 50 yards and beyond. Koo also connected on a 48-yard attempt to give the Falcons a 13-10 lead after their first drive of the second half. Koo continues to be one of the most reliable and accurate kickers in the league. However, his fantasy production remains reliant on Atlanta's sporadic offense, which has a tough matchup against the Bills in Week 17.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Doesn't miss in loss

    Koo made both of his field-goal attempts and connected on his only extra-point during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the 49ers.

    Koo opened the scoring with a 48-yard field goal on the Falcons' second offensive drive of the game. In the third quarter, Atlanta's nine-play, 71-yard drive culminated in a 22-yard attempt for Koo that cut the 49ers lead to 24-13. From inside of 50 yards this season, Koo is 46-for-47 (21-22 FGs, 25-25 PATs). The fourth-year pro remains one of the most reliable and efficient kickers in the league, but Atlanta's sporadic offense continues to diminish his fantasy potential.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Perfect once again

    Koo made all three of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers.

    After nailing his first two extra points, Koo gave the Falcons a 17-7 lead in the second quarter by connecting on a 32-yard field-goal attempt. He then capped off Atlanta's nine-play, 55-yard drive to start the second half with a 38-yard field goal. Two offensive possessions later, Koo expanded the lead to 29-14 by making a 48-yarder with six minutes to go in the fourth quarter. When Atlanta is able to move the ball, Koo can stack up points quickly, but that just hasn't consistently been the case this season. While he remains hindered by the Falcons' offensive struggles, but he continues to be one of the most consistent kickers in the league.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Doesn't miss in Week 13

    Koo connected on his only field-goal attempt and both of his extra points during Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Koo finished off a 15-play, 72-yard drive with a 21-yard field goal to cut Tampa Bay's lead to 13-10 in the second quarter. The 27-year-old continues to be one of the most efficient kickers in the league this season -- 16-for-18 on FGs (12-12 from inside 40 yards) and 22-for-22 on PATs. However, his fantasy potential remains hindered by the Falcons' inability to move the ball. Over his last four games, Koo has attempted just three field goals and five extra points. Anyway you cut it, that's just not enough opportunities to warrant any type of fantasy success.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: No field-goal attempts in Week 12

    Koo didn't attempt a field goal, but he made all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 21-14 win over the Jaguars.

    Koo didn't have an opportunity to redeem himself from his 50-yard miss during Week 11's shutout loss to the Patriots. However, he did connect on all three of his PATs, which kept him a perfect 20-for-20 on the season. Despite Koo's consistent accuracy, his fantasy production remains limited due to sporadic opportunities from Atlanta's offense.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Misses only attempt in shutout loss

    Koo missed his only field-goal attempt during Thursday's 25-0 loss to the Patriots.

    After the Patriots scored a touchdown to take a 10-0 lead at the start of the second quarter, the Falcons marched into field-goal range thanks to a 14-play drive. Koo connected on the 45-yard attempt, but it was nullified by a holding call. On the ensuing 50-yarder, Koo's kick narrowly missed the upright as it curved wide left. The 27-year-old has only missed two kicks this season, both of which were over 40 yards. Koo will likely remain one of the more consistent kickers in the league, but his fantasy value continues to be hampered by the Falcons' sporadic offense.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Connects on only attempt Sunday

    Koo connected on his only field-goal attempt during Sunday's 43-3 loss to the Cowboys.

    Koo opened the scoring for the Falcons by connecting on a 35-yard field-goal attempt during Atlanta's first offensive possession. However, he remained on the sideline for the remainder of the contest, as the Cowboys continued to build their lead. Koo has missed only one kick this season, but his fantasy production remains limited by Atlanta's sporadic offense.
