Player Outlook
Koo finished with the seventh-most Fantasy points per game in 2022 and delivered some major spike weeks with multiple 40+ field goals in them. The addition of Bijan Robinson and Kyle Pitts' return should help put Koo in scoring position more often. Koo makes for a nice target on draft day.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Solid despite long-distance misses

    Koo made 32 of 37 field-goal attempts and 27 of 28 extra-point tries across 17 appearances during the 2023 campaign. For a second straight season, Koo went exactly 32-for-37 on field-goal tries. In the previous two campaigns, he went 27-for-29 and 37-for-39, respectively, and the biggest difference between the separate two-year stretches is his efficiency from beyond 50 yards. In 2020 and 2021, Koo went 12-for-13 from 50-plus, but he's made just 10 of his last 17 attempts from that distance. Koo's long-range accuracy was never his strong suit, but it's disappointing to see him getting worse in that department -- 3-for-6 in 2023 after 7-for-11 in 2022. Despite the concerns, Koo is still one of the most reliable kickers from inside 50 yards and is under contract through the 2026 campaign. He could see a boost in fantasy value if the Falcons' offense can take a step forward with a new head coach in 2024.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Poor showing in Chicago

    Koo made one of three field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Bears. Koo's 50-yard field-goal attempt was short to end the first drive of the game, and he's now missed three straight from 50 or farther after starting the year 3-for-3 on such kicks. He also hit the left upright with a 42-yard attempt to end the Falcons' second offensive drive. Before that miss, Koo was 10-for-11 on attempts between 40 and 49 yards out. Koo made his final three kicks, including a 38-yard field goal, to somewhat salvage the performance. Koo's struggles on Sunday could be attributed to the weather, as snow flurries and strong wind were certainly factors in Chicago, but he's been inconsistent over the last four weeks, going just 7-for-11 on field-goal attempts during that stretch, which is boosted by a 5-for-5 outing in Week 16.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Busy day in win

    Koo made all five of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 29-10 win over the Colts. Koo missed a 49-yard attempt in the second quarter, but it was negated by an offsides penalty. He finished that drive with a 23-yard chip shot and ended the first half with a 47-yarder. He added three more field goals (41, 35 and 25) in the second half as Atlanta extended its lead, giving him a season-high five made field goals. It was a huge bounce-back performance for Koo, who missed a pair of 50-yard attempts in Week 14 and wasn't called upon in Week 15 due to the Falcons' offensive struggles.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Non-factor in week 15

    Koo (illness) didn't attempt a field goal and made his only extra-point try during Sunday's 9-7 loss to Carolina. Koo was added to the injury report Saturday due to an illness but still suited up for the contest. However, he didn't attempt a field goal for just the second time this season. After being one of the most productive kickers in the NFL from Weeks 5-13, he's dropped back-to-back duds. Last week, Koo missed a pair of 50-yard attempts, which has never been his strong suit, and this week, his lack of production was due to Atlanta's inept offense. The two main concerns about Koo's fantasy profile popping up at an inopportune time is an unfortunate reality for managers still in the playoffs.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Good to go versus Carolina

    Koo (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Koo was a late addition to the Falcons' injury report Saturday after picking up an illness, though the team elected not to add a kicker to the active roster. Koo has connected on 25 of 28 field-goal attempts and 20 of 21 extra-point tries this season.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Has illness, questionable for Sunday

    Koo was added to the Falcons' Week 15 injury report Saturday due to an illness, making him questionable for Sunday's game in Carolina, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports. Atlanta didn't make a corresponding move to add a kicker to the active roster, so the team may feel confident that Koo will be able to play through his ailment, even if he isn't 100 percent. Still, his status for Week 15 won't be confirmed until about 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Misses two kicks

    Koo missed two of three field-goal attempts and made both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 29-25 loss to the Buccaneers. Koo began by converting from 20 yards but subsequently hit the right upright from 50 and went wide left with a 52-yarder. In the end, those misses contributed toward the Falcons falling short. Through 13 games, he now sports 95 points total.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Stays perfect

    Koo made both of his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try during Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets. Koo sank multiple field goals for the seventh time this season and continued his perfect streak. He hasn't missed a kick since Week 3,and has 17 made FGs and 14 PATs during that stretch. Koo has made 96 percent of his field-goal attempts this season, which is a career-high mark for a guy who's already considered one of the most consistent kickers in the NFL.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Kicker to Start

    Koo is worth trusting again in Week 13 at the Jets, and three kickers in a row (Daniel Carlson, Tyler Bass and Jason Sanders) have scored at least 10 Fantasy points against New York with 9-of-9 field goals and 7-of-8 PATs. Koo has struggled recently with just two field goals and five PATs in his past two games against Arizona and New Orleans, but I like him to rebound in this spot. And in his past two games outdoors at Tampa Bay in Week 7 and at Tennessee in Week 8 he made 6-of-6 field goals and 3-of-3 PATs and scored at least 12 Fantasy points in each contest.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Perfect in win

    Koo made his only field-goal attempt and all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 24-15 win over the Saints. Despite being limited at practice during Week 12 prep due to a back injury, Koo didn't have an injury designation for Sunday's contest. He didn't show any ill effects during the win, making all four of his kicks, including a 39-yarder in the fourth quarter to make it a two-score game. Koo hasn't missed a kick since Week 3, sinking 13 PATs and 15 FGs during that stretch.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Cleared to play

    Koo (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against New Orleans, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Koo has played every game this season and missed just one field-goal attempt and one PAT. That he has far more of the former (22) than the latter (15) is a testament both to Koo's reliability and the Falcons' dysfunction on offense. The team is going back to Desmond Ridder under center after a bye, playing at home against the Saints in a game whose winner will reside in first place in the NFC South.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Limited Thursday

    Koo (back) was limited at practice Thursday, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports. One day removed from sitting out due to a back injury, Koo was back on the field with a cap on his reps, giving him just one more chance to get back to full before the Falcons potentially give him a designation for Sunday's game against the Saints. Atlanta signed kicker Matthew Wright to its practice squad Thursday as insurance in the even Koo is unable to go this weekend.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Perfect in loss

    Koo made his only field-goal attempt and both point-after tries during Sunday's 25-23 loss to Arizona. Koo was limited to just three kicks after making a season-high six last week against the Vikings. Regardless, he's still made 18 kicks (12 field goals) over his last four games and hasn't missed since Week 3. The Falcons' offense is inconsistent, especially now that they're fully embedded in a quarterback controversy, but Koo remains one of the more consistent placekickers in the NFL.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Busy day at office

    Koo made all four of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Vikings. Koo made a season-high six kicks during the Week 9 loss, including two 50-yard field goals. He's made 15 kicks (11 field goals) over his last three games and hasn't missed since Week 3. While the Falcons' offense can sputter at times, Koo remains one of the more consistent placekickers in the NFL and is a strong fantasy option on a weekly basis.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Makes five kicks in loss

    Koo made all three of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 28-23 loss to the Titans. Koo was really the only bright spot for Atlanta in the first half. He connected on a trio of field-goal attempts, including a 49-yarder, to keep the Falcons in the game. It was the third time this season that Koo has made at least three field goals, and he's now 16-for-17 on the season.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Quiet day in loss

    Koo made his only field-goal attempt and lone extra-point try during Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Commanders. Koo hasn't missed a kick in three straight games after a shaky start to the campaign, but he also hasn't received many opportunities. The Falcons fell behind by double figures early Sunday, so they were playing for touchdowns. If the Falcons continue to dig themselves deep holes, Koo simply won't get enough kicks to be a quality fantasy option.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Game-winning kick

    Koo made both of his field-goal attempts and his only point-after try during Sunday's 21-19 win over the Texans. Koo was off to a shaky start this year, but he put those concerns behind him with a quality performance versus Houston. He wasn't asked to go beyond his range, which helps, but this is exactly the type of production we've come to expect from the sixth-year kicker. Koo has never had the biggest leg, but he consistently makes the kicks he should and has been lights out with the game on the line, sinking eight game-winning kicks over the past three years.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Quiet day in loss

    Koo didn't attempt a field goal and made his only extra-point try during Sunday's 23-7 loss to Jacksonville. The Falcons fell behind by two scores early and reached Jacksonville's territory on only four of their 10 drives. Three of those ended in turnovers, and one resulted in a Drake London touchdown. Koo has struggled to start 2023, but this dud can be blamed on Atlanta's failure to move the ball consistently. Koo has proven he can bounce back, but he'll need some help from Bijan Robinson and company moving forward.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Makes game-winning kick

    Koo made one of his two extra-point tries and all four of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 25-24 win over the Packers. Koo made a 24-yard field goal in the first quarter to open the scoring, but he missed an extra-point attempt after a Drake London touchdown in the second quarter. The veteran kicker bounced back in a big way in the second half and connected on all three of his field-goal attempts, including a go-ahead 25-yarder with under a minute left in the game. Despite the missed PAT, Koo remains a consistent and effective kicker in reality and fantasy.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Shaky start to preseason

    Koo made two of his four extra-point tries and both of his field-goal attempts across three preseason games. Koo got off to a shaky start in the preseason, missing two of his three extra-point tries in the opener. However, he was able to settle down in the second exhibition and made all three of his kicks, including field goals from 36 and 45 yards. Koo didn't get an attempt in the preseason finale, as Atlanta's offense was blanked by Pittsburgh. Despite the early struggles, Koo's job remains safe, as he's been one of the more reliable kickers over the past four seasons. He could also see a boost in fantasy value this year if the Falcons' improved offense is able to live up to the hype with first-time starter Desmond Ridder at the helm.
