Hauschka, who played through a hip injury for part of the 2018 season, has been healthy while participating in the team's offseason conditioning program and spring practices, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
The only competition for Hausch Money in camp will be undrafted free agent Chase McLaughlin, so the job will belong to the veteran barring something crazy happening. Hauschka only posted 91 points last season, the lowest of his career for any full campaign. The Buffalo offense should be improved after all kinds of money was spent this offseason, though we'll remind you this is still a defensive-oriented team that plays many of its games in windy or otherwise bad weather.
Hauschka finished the season making only 22 of 28 field goals and 25 of 26 extra points.
Hauschka finished No. 18 among all kickers in standard fantasy scoring, but that's not all that strong considering a number of teams had midseason kicker switches. The 78.6 percent field-goal success rate was the worst Hauschka's posted since the 2009 season, as he was stifled by a team that spent a good part of the season unable to move the ball, a shuffling of holders, and a hip injury. It'd be highly unlikely the Bills move on from him, as he as great for the team in 2017 and some of the issues in 2018 were out of his control. With Josh Allen heading into his second year and the Bills having all kinds of cap money to continue rebuilding the offense (and perhaps a more stable situation for his holder), things should be on the upswing for the veteran kicker heading into 2019.
Hauschka made two of his three field-goal attempts in Sunday's loss to New England.
Hauschka has been dealing with a hip injury the past couple weeks but has played through the issue. He's missed a couple kicks between 40 and 49 yards the past three weeks after being perfect from that range for a majority of the season. He's hitting a career-low 81 percent on field goals this season (22-for-27), which could in part be due to his hip injury, especially since he surprisingly had a 43-yard attempt fall short Sunday. He'll look to finish the year strong against the Dolphins in Week 17.
Hauschka (hip) practiced fully Friday and isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's game at New England.
The Bills never seemed worried about their kicker being ready to go, especially after he worked through the injury in last week's win over the Lions. That said, there are plenty of better options than a guy kicking for a heavy underdog in December weather against a team that typically dominates home games.
Hauschka, who was limited Wednesday with a lingering hip injury, was back to a full practice Thursday.
Coach Sean McDermott has said all along he trusts his kicker will be out there for Week 16, and Thursday's full practice pretty much seals that up. The bigger problem for fantasy owners is the matchup, a road game at New England, a team that's had the Bills' number -- as well as most other December visitors -- for years.
Hauschka (hip) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
Hauschka played through the same injury during last week's win over the Lions and should avoid an absence Sunday against the Patriots if he advances to full participation in practice by Friday. The veteran kicker has converted 20 of 24 field-goal tries this season, with his 83.3 percent success rate representing his worst mark since 2011.
Hauschka didn't attempt a field goal, though he did convert both PATs in Sunday's 14-13 win over the Lions.
Hauschka entered Sunday's game dealing with a hip issue, and while it didn't seem to bother him on his PAT attempts, the Bills did forgo a couple of makable field-goal attempts while choosing to go for it on fourth down. The veteran kicker is 20-for-24 on field goals this season, and he'll look to finish strong against the Patriots and Dolphins in Weeks 16 and 17.
Hauschka (hip) is active Sunday against Detroit.
Despite missing significant practice time this week due to a right hip injury, the Bills never signed a backup option for Hauschka, suggesting his Week 15 status was relatively safe. Nonetheless, there are likely higher-quality kicking options available for the fantasy postseason.
Hauschka (right hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions after logging a limited practice Friday.
That said, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site noted earlier Friday that Hauschka should be fine for Sunday's game, a notion supported by the fact that he remains the only kicker on Buffalo's roster as of Friday.
Hauschka (back) will get "re-acclimated" at Friday's practice, according to Chris Brown of the Bills' official site, and should be fine for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Hauschka isn't a great kicking option as he ranks just 21st in standard scoring, but at least the Buffalo offense has finally started moving the ball better and the weather isn't supposed to be so December lousy.
Hauschka (back) did not kick in practice Thursday for the second straight day, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "We're still waiting," coach Sean McDermott said following the session.
Hauschka took a shot as both teams were chasing after a blocked field goal during Sunday's loss to the Jets, a hit the Bills have been complaining about all week. McDermott -- who hasn't brought in another placekicker yet -- still feels his veteran will be able to go Sunday against the Lions, though some form of kicking it around Friday would go a long way toward that belief.
Hauschka (back) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.
Coach Sean McDermott is labeling Hauschka as day-to-day while the kicker recovers from a sore back, which stems from a hit he took on a blocked field goal during Sunday's loss to the Jets. While Hauschka is still hurting a bit, McDermott said he's confident the 33-year-old will be ready to play in advance of the Week 15 game against the Lions, per Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic. Unless the Bills add another kicker to the roster at some point before the weekend, there won't be any reason to view McDermott's claim with any skepticism.
Hauschka suffered a back injury during Sunday's loss to the Jets and is considered day-to-day, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Hauschka was injured following a hit on blocked field goal and said after the game he was fairly sore. His day-to-day designation is a positive sign for his availability against the Lions on Sunday, though we'll learn more when practice reports start trickling through.
Hauschka suffered an injury to his lower back and pelvis following a hit on a blocked field goal in Sunday's loss to the Jets, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. "I was doing my best just to get my foot on the ball," Hauschka said. "It definitely stiffened up my body."
Hauschka says he's pretty sore and will have a better idea on the severity of the injury when he wakes up Monday and sees how he feels, which is likely to be followed by some evaluation by the team.
Hauschka made one of two field-goal attempts and missed his only extra-point try during Sunday's 21-17 loss to the Dolphins.
Hauschka had not missed a kick since Week 1, so his inaccurate outing Week 13 was something of a surprise. The 33-year-old will look to bounce back against the Jets on Sunday, but his lack of reliable volume in Buffalo's offense makes him an untrustworthy fantasy option.
Hauschka converted his only field-goal attempt and all three extra-point tries during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Jaguars.
Hauschka continues to build upon an impressive season, and he hasn't missed a kick since Week 1. Despite his accuracy, the 33-year-old's volume concerns make him an untrustworthy fantasy option. Hauschka has not yet attempted more than two field goals in a single game once this season.
Hauschka hit both of his field-goal attempts and all five extra-point attempts in Sunday's 41-10 pummeling of the Jets.
The fact that Hauschka had as many extra-point tries in one afternoon as he had from Week 3-10 combined shows you this is far from an offense that yields fantasy production. But for one day, owners that needed to throw a dart got rewarded, as the Bills took control of the game early and cashed in on seven scoring drives. Hausch Money and the Bills get a bye in Week 11 before the Jags visit in Week 12.
Hauschka converted his sole field-goal attempt during Sunday's 41-9 loss to the Bears.
Hauschka did not attempt any extra points, as Buffalo's offense scored only one touchdown and the team elected to attempt a two-point conversion with the game well out of hand. The veteran kicker's only field-goal attempt came on a 41-yard try, which he converted without issue. Despite his reliable accuracy, Hauschka does not receive the volume necessary to provide weekly fantasy upside.
Hauschka made both his field-goal attempts in Monday night's 25-6 loss to the Patriots.
Hauschka converted from 51 and 47 yards, giving Buffalo its only points of the contest. Amid a struggling offense, Hauschka has managed just 43 points through eight games, yet has missed only one of his 20 total attempts.
Hauschka made his only kick in Sunday's humiliating loss to the Colts, a field goal from 34 yards. He did not attempt an extra point, as the Bills failed to score more than the aforementioned field goal and a safety in the 37-5 loss.
At least Hauschka can someday say he kicked meaningful points in the only game in NFL history to end with a 37-5 score. As we continue to write after each game, Hausch Money is a fine kicker, but the dollar has been deflating all season since he plays for one of the worst offenses in recent memory. The Bills are averaging a laughable 11.6 points per game, and Hauschka hasn't had more than two field-goal attempts in any contest this season. Up next is a brutal matchup against a Patriots team that's rolling once again.
