Zuerlein converted his only field-goal attempt in Sunday's 25-3 loss to Washington.
The Dallas offense could get absolutely nothing going behind an injury-ravaged offensive line, especially after rookie seventh-round pick Ben DiNucci was forced into action for Andy Dalton (concussion). The outlook for the entire unit is bleak heading into the Week 8 road clash with the Eagles, and Zuerlein -- who hasn't kicked multiple field goals since Week 3 -- seems likely to get limited opportunities once again.
Zuerlein went 1-for-2 on field goals and converted one extra point Monday against the Cardinals.
Zuerlein was able to knock through a 34-yard field-goal attempt but was wide right on a 58-yard attempt later in the contest. The veteran is now 9-for-11 on field-goal attempts this season, with both misses coming on kicks over 50 yards.
Zuerlein was a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals and 4-for-4 on PATs in Sunday's win over the Giants.
With the Cowboys down 34-31, Zuerlein came through with FGs of 40 yards and 34 yards inside the final two minutes to secure the victory, the second time this season he's kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired. The Dallas offense as a whole will likely take a step backward with Andy Dalton replacing Dak Prescott (ankle) under center, but a less efficient aerial attack could mean more field-goal opportunities for Zuerlein.
Zuerlein didn't attempt a field goal and connected on both his extra points in Sunday's 49-38 loss to the Browns.
The kicker's lack of activity seems baffling given the final score, but with the Cowboys staring at a 41-14 deficit heading into the fourth quarter, they were forced to go for two-point conversions during their comeback attempt and leave Zuerlein cooling his heels on the sideline. He should get more opportunities in Week 5 against the Giants.
Zuerlein connected on both his field-goal attempts but only one of three extra points during Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.
One of the PATs was blocked, but the other was purely a miss from Zuerlein, who went a perfect 42-for-42 on extra points with the Rams last year and has never missed more than two in an entire season during his career. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against a Browns team that's given up nearly 30 points a game so far in 2020.
Zuerlein connected on both his field-goal attempts and all four of his PATs in Sunday's comeback win over the Falcons.
His final kick was clutch, as Zuerlein calmly drilled a 46-yard field goal with zeros on the clock to secure the improbable 40-39 victory. The 32-year-old is off to a solid start to his Dallas tenure, and he should continue to get plenty of scoring opportunities alongside one of the most talent-laden offenses in the NFL.
Zuerlein went 1-for-2 on field goals and 2-for-2 on extra points in Sunday's loss to the Rams.
The miss was from 53 yards out, but Zuerlein still failed to produce a revenge game against the team that let him walk away in the spring after eight mostly excellent seasons. The Cowboys' offense was expected to be explosive this year, although it fizzled with 17 points in Week 1, so there should be more productive days ahead for Zuerlein.
The release of Kai Forbath on Saturday solidifies Zuerlein's status as the Cowboys' top placekicker, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Though Forbath performed very capably during his stint with Dallas last season, the Cowboys elected to stick with Zuerlein, whose strong leg led to some productive fantasy seasons during his eight-year tenure with the Rams. The 32-year-old will now be working behind a strong Dallas offense, a context that could help him engineer a bounce-back campaign. Zuerlein made 24 of his 33 field-goal attempts with Los Angeles in 2019, resulting in a career-low 72.7 percent conversion rate.
Zuerlein has reached agreement on a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Coming off a down season with nine missed field goals, Zuerlein will settle for a contract that leaves him outside the top tier at his position, and he may even need to compete with Kai Forbath -- who recently signed a one-year contract -- for the placekicking job. Zuerlein, the presumptive favorite, still has plenty of leg strength, as evidenced by his five conversions from 50-plus yards for the Rams last season. The 32-year-old primarily struggled on medium-distance kicks, going 5-of-11 in the 40-49 range. The winner between Zuerlein and Forbath should be useful for fantasy purposes, considering Dallas led the NFL in yards (6,904) and field-goal attempts (40) last year.
Zuerlein connected on one of his two field-goal attempts and all four extra-point kicks during Sunday's 31-24 win over Arizona.
The veteran finished the campaign connecting on just four of eight field-goal attempts over the final five weeks of the season to drop to 72.7 conversion rate for the year. It was the second worst field-goal percentage of his career and lowest since hitting just 66.7 percent during the 2015 season. He's a good bet to bounce back in 2020, and the improvements the Los Angeles offense made down the stretch are encouraging for his fantasy outlook.
Zuerlein connected on one of his two field-goal attempts and all four extra-point kicks during Saturday's 34-31 loss to San Francisco.
While it was early in the third quarter when Zuerlein missed a 52-yard, field-goal attempt, it was still costly. The veteran has missed half of his field-goal kicks over the past four weeks and owns an underwhelming 74.2 conversion percentage for the campaign. It's a disappointing mark after Zuerlein hit 90.3 percent over the previous three seasons, but it is worth noting he missed practices this week because of a quadriceps injury.
Zuerlein (quadriceps) is active for Saturday's game at San Francisco, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.
Zuerlein didn't practice this week due to a strained right quad, but his availability nonetheless was contingent on his ability to kick Friday. When the Rams didn't sign another kicker before this game, it was a sign that he got through the session without issue. He'll look to fare better than he did against the 49ers in Week 6, when he didn't attempt a field goal and made his sole point-after try.
Zuerlein (quadriceps) is expected to play Saturday against the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Rams opted not to sign another kicker ahead of Saturday's contest, which seems to indicate Zuerlein's availability. While fantasy owners may want to have a plan in place in the unlikely event the 31-year-old can't play, it's clear the Rams trust their kicker's health in a do-or-die playoff situation against the 49ers.
The Rams expect Zuerlein (quadriceps) to suit up Saturday at San Francisco, but he'll attempt kicks Friday to determine his availability, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Zuerlein hasn't logged a practice rep this week due to a quad strain. Friday's test should reveal whether or not he'll be available Saturday evening, but coach Sean McVay hinted the Rams have a contingency in place in the event Zuerlein is sidelined. If that comes to pass, the Rams likely will sign Brett Maher to the 53-man roster after he had a tryout with the team, per Field Yates of ESPN.
Zuerlein (quadriceps) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Zuerlein has been sidelined this week while rehabbing a strained quadriceps. The development has spurred the Rams to explore other options, as coach Sean McVay told Thiry on Monday. To date, though, the team hasn't added another kicker to the 53-man roster or practice squad, so Zuerlein remains the top in-house option to handle such duties Saturday in San Francisco.
Head coach Sean McVay said Monday that Zuerlein is dealing with a muscle strain in his leg and is questionable for Saturday's game against the 49ers, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Zuerlein was barely used in Sunday's 44-21 loss to Dallas, making his only extra-point attempt. It's unclear how he sustained the injury, but the fact that he could miss time suggests it's cause for concern. McVay said the team will explore its options at kicker this week just in case, but it's still too early for Zuerlein to be in serious jeopardy of missing Week 16.
Zuerlein connected on his only extra-point attempt during Sunday's 44-21 loss to Dallas.
The Cowboys got ahead in the second quarter and took Zuerlein out of the game before halftime. It was a disappointing fantasy showing for the veteran, and obviously, at the wrong time of the season. Unfortunately, a road date with the 49ers in Week 16 doesn't project as a favorable setup, either.
Zuerlein connected on all four of his extra-point kicks during Sunday's 28-12 win over Seattle. His lone field-goal attempt from 39 yards was blocked.
The veteran is a perfect 33-for-33 on extra-point kicks this season, but he's only converted 75.9 percent of his field-goal attempts. It's a notable drop from his 90.3 percent success rate over the previous three seasons. The Los Angeles offense appears to have found its footing of late and scored 62 points over the past two weeks, so Zuerlein should continue to receive chances and remains a serviceable fantasy asset in the majority of settings -- even with his dip in efficiency.
Zuerlein made two of three field-goal attempts and all four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 34-7 win over the Cardinals.
Zuerlein converted a couple chip shots from 27 and 33 yards, but he missed wide left from 41 yards during the first quarter. It was a much-needed performance for the Los Angeles offense after a few down weeks, and a matchup with Seattle awaits in Week 14. The 31-year-old has already missed six field goals this season -- his most misses since 2015 -- with most of his struggles coming in the 40-yard range (4-for-9).
Zuerlein connected on both of his field-goal attempts during Monday's 45-6 loss to Baltimore.
The veteran kicker hit from 32 and 46 yards during the second quarter and accounted for Los Angeles' entire offensive production. Zuerlein's been held to just eight field goals and 10 extra points through the past five games, and with the Rams' offense struggling, his fantasy value is trending in the wrong direction.
