Player Outlook
Gay should be one of the first five kickers drafted on Draft Day, but don't draft him before the final two rounds. Since joining the Rams, Gay has been one of the most accurate kickers in the league, making 92% of his field goals and 98.5% of his extra points. His Rams have a high-powered offense and play more than half of their games in controlled conditions. There's not much more you can ask for in a Fantasy kicker.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Tendered by Rams

    Gay, a restricted free agent, received an original-round tender from the Rams on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The Rams will now have the chance to match any offer sheet from another team, and Los Angeles would receive a fifth-round pick should it decide not to match. Gay was one of the top kickers in the game in 2021, as he made 32 of 34 field-goal attempts and went 48-for-49 on PATs.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Doesn't miss in Super Bowl victory

    Gay connected on his only field-goal attempt and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI. Gay's only field goal was a 41-yard kick to cut the Bengals' lead to 20-16 halfway through the third quarter. While the 28-year-old kicker was perfect on the night, the kicking unit was not, as holder Johnny Hekker fumbled a snap during an extra-point attempt after the Rams' second touchdown of the game. On the season, Gay connected on 32 of his 34 field goals and 48 of his 49 PATs en route to the best campaign of his three-year career. He's set to be a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Rams likely want him back in 2022.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Paves way to Super Bowl

    Gay connected on two of his three field-goal kicks and both of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 20-17 win over the 49ers in their NFC Championship Game. The 54-yard missed field goal in the second quarter was the lone blemish of the night for Gay, as he bounced back and connected on the tying and go-ahead field goals in the fourth quarter. Look for the second-year Ram to have another solid showing in the Super Bowl against Cincinnati.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: More of the same in win over Bucs

    Gay connected on three of his four field-goal kicks and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 30-27 win over Tampa Bay.

Looking ahead to the 2022 season, Gay projects to remain one of the more reliable kicking options.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Busy in win over Cards

    Gay connected on two field-goal kicks and four extra-point attempts during Monday's 34-11 wild-card round victory over Arizona. Gay didn't skip a beat in the wild-card round with another excellent fantasy showing. He's been a top option all year, and with the Buccaneers-Rams game having the potential to be a high-scoring affair, Gay projects to have another solid game this week.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Finishes season strong

    Gay connected on his lone field-goal kick and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to San Francisco. The second-year Ram finished the campaign with an elite 94.1 field-goal percentage and missed just a single extra point all season for a 98.0 percentage. Gay should also set up nicely for the postseason and be a solid fantasy contributor for the duration of Los Angeles' playoff run.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: First field-goal miss since Week 4

    Gay connected on two extra-point kicks but missed a 56-yard field-goal attempt during the first quarter of Sunday's 20-19 win over Baltimore. This was Gay's weakest showing of the year, and it unfortunately came at a tough time in the fantasy schedule. He's a bounce-back candidate in Week 18 against San Francisco and should be a serviceable contributor for the duration of Los Angeles' playoff run.

    Gay made all three of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Vikings.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Streak extends to 20 straight FGs

    Gay connected on both of his field-goal kicks and both extra-point attempts during Tuesday's 20-10 win over Seattle. Now that Gay is 28-for-29 on field-goal kicks for the campaign and leads the league in field-goal percentage, it's hard to overlook Gay's high-fantasy floor and respectable ceiling. Additionally, he's now hit at least two field goals and two extra points in each of the last four games, so Gay's also contributing when it matters most for fantasy managers.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Rams-Seahawks moved to Tuesday

    Gay and the Rams will no longer play the Seahawks on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Rams organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, Los Angeles will be able to restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. After Tuesday's game, the Rams will face a quick turnaround for Week 16 with a Sunday game in Minnesota on Dec. 26.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Turns in another solid showing

    Gay connected on three field-goal kicks and three extra-point attempts during Monday's 30-23 win over Arizona. It's been an impressive run for the third-year kicker, as Gay hasn't missed a kick in eight games. Additionally, he's now hit 26 of 27 field-goal kicks and 38 of 39 extra-point attempts for the campaign. Those are high-end numbers in most settings, and Gay should remain a solid fantasy option.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Huge showing in blowout win

    Gay hit all three of his field-goal kicks and four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 37-7 win over Jacksonville. This was a get-right spot for the Los Angeles offense, and the Rams racking up 37 points was a huge boon to Gay's fantasy results. He's been next to automatic this season, connecting on 23 of 24 field-goal kicks and 35 of 36 extra-point attempts. Expect Gay to remain a solid contributor moving forward.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Hits four kicks in loss

    Gay connected on two field-goal attempts and two extra-point kicks during Sunday's 36-28 loss to Green Bay. Gay hasn't missed a field goal since Week 4 and is now 20-for-21 for the campaign. While the Rams have stuttered of late with three consecutive losses, it hasn't been a considerable hindrance to Gay's fantasy outlook. He remains a sound option in most settings moving forward.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Quiet against 49ers

    Gay hit a 37-yard field goal and connected on his lone extra-point attempt during Monday's 31-10 loss to San Francisco. It was a down fantasy showing for Gay, as head coach Sean McVay tried to fake a field goal at the end of the first half, and the Los Angeles offense was never able to find a consistent groove Monday. The Rams don't play again until Week 12 against Green Bay, and while Gay projects to finish the season strong, he might not be worth a stash on fantasy benches for Week 11.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Still produces in loss

    Gay connected on three field-goal kicks and an extra-point attempt during Sunday's 28-16 loss to the Titans. It was another solid showing for Gay, and he's now hit all nine of his field-goal attempts over the past five weeks. Perhaps most encouraging was that the Los Angeles offense struggled Sunday, and Gay was still able to post a solid fantasy line. He's proving to be one of the more reliable kickers in the league.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Hits six more kicks in win

    Gay connected on a 27-yard field goal and hit all five of his extra-point kicks during Sunday's 38-22 win over Houston. With Los Angeles up to an average of 30.6 points per game, and Gay having connected on 14 of 15 field goals, it's probably safe to continue viewing the 27-year-old kicker as a rock-solid weekly option moving forward. Gay and the Rams don't have a bye until Week 11, too.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Hits all four kicks in win

    Gay connected on two field-goal kicks and both extra-point attempts during Sunday's 28-19 win over Detroit. Gay has now missed just a single field goal and single extra point through seven games to start the year, and he's established himself as a go-to option at kicker in most settings. It's also worth noting that Los Angeles doesn't have its bye until Week 11.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Adds another strong showing

    Gay connected on his lone field-goal kick and converted all five of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 38-11 win over the Giants. It was another solid fantasy performance for Gay. He's hit 10 of 11 field-goal attempts and 20 of 21 extra-point kicks and should probably be considered a set-and-forget option at kicker in most leagues.

  • Rams' Matt Gay: Gets back to full practice

    Gay (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Gay was a limited participant in the Rams' first practice session of the week due to an ankle issue. However, he is now in line to continue in his regular duties as the team's kicker for a Week 6 matchup against the Giants. Through five games this season, Gay has made 10 of his 11 field-goal attempts and and 15 of his 16 extra-point tries.
