Player Outlook
York's first season as the Browns' kicker didn't move the needle in Fantasy whatsoever. He finished 29th in Fantasy points per game among kickers despite finishing tied for 13th in field goal attempts. That's what happens when you miss 25% of your kicks. York's struggles continued into the preseason, and the team ultimately decided to give up on the fourth-round pick after just one year, trading for Dustin Hopkins prior to cutdown day. Even if York latches on with another team, rostering a kicker who misses 25% of his kicks is not recommended.

  • Cade York: Checks in with Tennessee

    York visited with the Titans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. York has seemingly recovered from the quadriceps injury that landed him on the Giants' practice squad injured list back in December. The 22-year-old will now look to catch on with another team during the offseason after having already visited Jacksonville on Tuesday.

  • Cade York: Suffers quad injury

    The Giants placed York on the practice squad reserve/injured list Friday due to a quadricep injury, Michael Elsen of the Giants' official site reports. The 22-year-old looked on track to serve as the Giants' kicker for the final three games of the season, as Randy Bullock (hamstring) was recently placed on injured reserve. However, York suffered a quad injury at Thursday's practice that will also keep him sidelined for the rest of the season. With Graham Gano (knee) also on IR along with Bullock, the Giants signed Mason Crosby to their practice squad Friday. He's expected to be elevated to active roster ahead of Monday's game against the Eagles and will presumably keep the Giants' kicking job for Weeks 17 and 18.

  • Cade York: Likely to kick for Giants in Week 16

    York is likely to serve as the Giants' kicker in Monday's game against the Eagles after head coach Brian Daboll said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Randy Bullock (hamstring) to be available for Week 16, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. York, who currently resides on New York's practice squad, looks destined to be elevated to the active roster Monday, assuming Bullock doesn't make any major strides in his recovery from the injury in the coming days. The 2022 fourth-round pick hasn't yet appeared in a game this season, but across 17 appearances with the Browns as a rookie, he converted 24 of 32 field-goal attempts and 35 of 37 extra-point tries.

  • Cade York: Inked to practice squad

    The Giants signed York to its practice squad Friday. York rejoins the Giants organization just two days after he was cut loose from the 53-man roster. The Giants signed him off the Titans' practice squad earlier this month, but he was never active for a game during his three weeks on the roster. The Giants appear to have settled on veteran Randy Bullock as their kicker moving forward with Graham Gano (knee) on injured reserve.

  • Giants' Cade York: Healthy scratch again

    York (coach's decision) is inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Commanders, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. The 22-year-old had a chance to win the kicking job in New York after Graham Gano (knee) was placed on injured reserve, but it seems as if he's lost the competition, with Randy Bullock assuming the team's kicking duties. York has yet to appear in an NFL game since signing with the Giants' in early November.

  • Giants' Cade York: Joined by Bullock on active roster

    The Giants elevated Randy Bullock from the practice squad Saturday, meaning he and York are the candidates to kick for the team Sunday at Las Vegas, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports. The Giants have yet to tip their hand about who will get the first chance to take over for regular placekicker Graham Gano, who was placed on injured reserve Friday due to a lingering left knee injury. York was the Browns' kicker last season, netting 24 of 32 field-goal attempts and 35 of 37 point-after tries in 17 games.

  • Giants' Cade York: Joins Giants

    The Giants are signing York off the Titans' practice squad. With Graham Gano (knee) slated to go on IR, York and Randy Bullock are candidates to serve as the Giants' kicker Sunday against the Raiders. Per Dan Duggan of The Athletic, a decision on the team's Week 9 kicker could hinge on a competition between York and Bullock during Friday's practice.

  • Cade York: To be cut following trade

    The Browns are slated to waive York after having traded for Dustin Hopkins from the Chargers, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. York lost Cleveland's kicking competition by virtue of going 4-for-8 on field-goal tries in four preseason appearances, including back-to-back games in which he failed to convert what would have been a game winner. Now, the 2022 fourth-round pick's roster spot has been made expendable by the Browns' trade of a 2025 seventh-round pick to the Chargers in exchange for veteran placekicker Dustin Hopkins. If he clears waivers, York will look to land on a practice squad elsewhere in the league. He could even be a candidate to reunite with Cleveland, considering the draft capital invested in him by the team.

  • Browns' Cade York: Not named starter

    Head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters Sunday that he has not committed to York being the Browns' starting kicker for Week 1, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Stefanski reiterated that the discussions have been internal and that York is "really talented." The 2022 fourth-round pick out of LSU has struggled in the preseason, going just 4-for-8 on field goal tries in four games, but he has converted on all eight extra-point attempts. The Browns opted to not bring in another kicker during training camp, but with York's preseason performance, they could change course and bring in some competition ahead of their season opener against the Bengals on Sunday, Sept. 10.

  • Browns' Cade York: Won't face competition in camp

    Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday that there are no plans to bring in another kicker to compete with York during the preseason, Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports. York has struggled in exhibition action, hitting just half of his six field-goal attempts. He had two chances at a go-ahead kick late Thursday, missing wide right on a 47-yarder and wide left from five yards closer after the Eagles were flagged for a penalty. Nonetheless, Stefanski indicated confidence in the kicker, saying, "Cade's our kicker. We support him. We have a ton of confidence in him. That's really as simple as that." York was up-and-down as a rookie last season, making just 24 of 32 field-goal attempts but showing a strong leg with a 4-for-7 mark from 50-plus yards.

  • Browns' Cade York: Misses twice Thursday

    York was successful on three of four field-goal attempts in Thursday's 18-18 preseason game against the Eagles. York, who had missed attempts in each of the first two preseason games, made all three tries during the first half Thursday. But all anyone will remember are the misses near the end of the game that could have sealed a win for the Browns. He went wide right on a 47-yarder -- the third time he went wide right during preseason action -- but a Philadelphia penalty gave him another chance, five yards closer. That one he hooked to the left. Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski stood by the young kicker, telling Zac Jackson of The Athletic that he's not interested in adding another to kicker to compete with York. Nevertheless, the misses are alarming.

  • Browns' Cade York: Misses second FGA

    York missed his lone field-goal attempt in Friday's preseason game against Washington. York pushed a 46-yarder wide right, the second miss of the preseason with both going astray to the same side. Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski said he's not concerned about York, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports, and Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports the Browns have no plans to bring in a kicker to compete with York.

  • Browns' Cade York: Missed FGA in HoF game

    York missed a 49-yard field-goal attempt and made all three extra-point tries in Thursday's preseason win over the Jets. York was wide right on the Browns' first drive of the game. He's coming off a roller coaster of a rookie season that included three misses inside the 40 and a 75-percent success rate. Prior to the start of training camp, Cleveland special teams coach Bubba Ventrone told Ashley Bostock of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that York is very in-tune with his mechanics, then added the caveat, "almost too in-tune at times," which provides insight into his inconsistency last season. The kicker himself said preseason is the time to focus on technique, but he needs to put that behind him when transitioning to the regular season.

  • Browns' Cade York: Makes all kicks

    York converted his lone field-goal attempt and all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 24-10 win over Washington in Week 17. York gave the Browns a 3-0 first-quarter lead when he buried a 37-yarder. Later in the quarter, he booted a chip shot from 25 yards, but Washington was offside on the play. That prompted head head coach Kevin Stefanski to bring the offense back to go for it on 4th-and goal from the 3-yard line, but Washington stopped them on downs.

  • Browns' Cade York: Makes both kicks

    York converted his lone field-goal attempt and extra-point try in Saturday's 17-10 loss to New Orleans. York connected from 30 yards but was not given a shot at longer kicks on a brutally cold day with significant wind in Cleveland. Two drives ended on the Saints' side of the field, but attempts would have been from 59 and 60 yards. The Browns have averaged 11 points over the last three games, which suggests York is not a good option for fantasy teams still in the hunt.

  • Browns' Cade York: Lobbied for long FGA

    York pleaded with coaches to let him attempt a 68-yard field goal in last week's loss to the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "If I'm asking for the kick, I think I can make it," York said. The Browns were at the 50-yard line and trailing, 13-3, with time running out in the first half. When quarterback Deshaun Watson spiked the ball to stop the clock, York lobbied to try the kick, but head coach Kevin Stefanski opted for a Hail Mary pass, which was unsuccessful. The rookie placekicker has converted four of seven attempts from beyond the 50, including a 58-yarder, and had a 60-yard effort blocked against the Ravens in October. York conceded never attempting a kick from 68 yards in pre-game warmups, but he felt confident he could make it.

  • Browns' Cade York: Perfect in win

    York converted two of two field-goal attempts and three of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 27-14 win over Houston in Week 13. York had been wobbly over the previous five weeks, converting just six of 10 field-goal attempts, so Sunday's effort was a welcome relief. The 2022 fourth-round pick was viewed as someone that could stabilize the position, as the team had burned through kickers since 2019, but there have been moments of uncertainty.

  • Browns' Cade York: Has kick blocked

    York converted one of two field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Bills in Week 11. York had a 34-yard attempt blocked, the third time in four weeks a field goal was tipped. He leads all kickers with three attempts blocked, which may be an issue the Browns want to investigate. The team may want to determine if there are protection issues on the line, or if York's trajectory is contributing to the blocks. He's also had tries from 53 and 60 yards blocked.

  • Browns' Cade York: Makes all kicks in loss

    York successfully converted his lone field-goal attempt and two extra-point tries in Sunday's 39-17 loss to the Dolphins in Week 10. York did his part in the loss, making all the opportunities he was allotted, but there was little a placekicker could do for the Browns in Week 10. Cleveland spent the entire second half down by two or three scores.

  • Browns' Cade York: Has support of staff

    Browns special teams coach Mike Priefer believes York will be "fine" after the rookie placekicker missed two field goals in Week 5's 30-28 loss to the Chargers, Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "He's in a good place mentally, he kicked the ball really well [Wednesday], he's never really lost his confidence. He's just as disappointed as any one of us, as any one of our fans," Priefer said. Priefer and head coach Kevin Stefanski lived through a similar situation in 2018 with the Vikings, who had drafted Daniel Carlson in the fifth round (167th overall). Carlson missed three kicks in a game, including two in overtime, and was released after just two games. Carlson has since become a steady-footed kicker for the Raiders and led the league in points and field goals made last season. York will get a longer leash as a result of the coaches' experience with Carlson. "We did not handle that situation very well. We did not help Daniel mentally. He was probably not as strong as Cade at that age. I know he is now, he's doing a great job, he's a great kicker," the coach explained. York and the Browns host the Patriots in Week 6.
