Player Outlook
McPherson will be one of the most sought-after Fantasy kickers following a rookie year that saw him finish top five in points per game. The kicker scored 10-plus Fantasy points in 9 of 16 games. The Bengals offense figures to be potent again this year, opening the door for McPherson to boot some more field goals and extra points. He's one of the rare kickers who is worth taking before the final round ... just not before the final three rounds.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Makes all four kicks in Super Bowl

    McPherson converted both field-goal attempts and both PATs during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Rams in Super Bowl LVI. It was a strong finish to a successful playoff run for McPherson, as he went 14-for-14 on field goals and 6-for-6 on PATs in four contests, though he didn't receive an opportunity to tie the game in the fourth quarter Sunday. The 22-year-old enjoyed a successful rookie campaign, going 28-for-33 on field-goal attempts and 46-for-48 on extra points. McPherson is a safe bet to open training camp as Cincinnati's kicker for 2022.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Full participant Tuesday

    McPherson (groin) fully participated in Tuesday's practice session, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. McPherson was inactive for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Browns due to a groin injury, but it appears as though he's back to full health. The 22-year-old should be available for Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Raiders after Elliott Fry filled in during the Bengals' Week 18 loss to the Browns.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Not playing Week 18

    McPherson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. McPherson's first absence of the season was foreshadowed Saturday, when the Bengals promoted another kicker (Elliott Fry) from the practice squad. Fry will thus step in to handle kicking duties in place of McPherson, who should be ready to go for the wild-card round. The fifth-round rookie out of Florida turned in a productive regular season, connecting on 46 of 48 extra-point tries and 28 of 33 field-goal attempts, including a 9-for-11 mark from 50-plus yards.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Appears unlikely to play Sunday

    McPherson (groin) appears unlikely to play Sunday against the Browns after kicker Elliott Fry was elevated from the Bengals' practice squad Saturday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. McPherson appeared to be trending in the right direction ahead of Week 18 but was still listed as questionable against the Browns. If he's ultimately inactive, he'll fall one field goal shy of setting the Bengals' single-season scoring record.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Questionable against Browns

    McPherson (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. McPherson was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he fully participated in Friday's practice session and is trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Limited at practice Wednesday

    McPherson was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session due to a groin injury, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. McPherson made all six of his kicks in Sunday's win over the Chiefs to help Cincinnati clinch the AFC North crown, but he apparently sustained a groin injury during the contest. If he hopes to avoid taking a designation into the Bengals' Week 18 game in Cleveland, he'll likely need to practice fully Thursday or Friday.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Nails game-winner Sunday

    McPherson made both of his field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Chiefs. With the Bengals offense chugging along once again, McPherson had plenty of work to do, although it mostly came after touchdowns. His 20-yard kick to win it as time expired was among the easiest he's ever had in terms of distance while simultaneously being probably the most pressure-packed in terms of importance. The rookie has now put up at least nine points in four straight games.

However, after nailing a 30-yard attempt to open the scoring and adding a 36-yarder at the end of the third quarter, McPherson pushed a 50-yard field goal wide right with five minutes left to go in the game.
