Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Two FGs in Week 11 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted both of his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Broncos.

Sanders only has one missed field goal on the year, and he notched his sixth kick of the season from over 50 yards out Sunday. Coming off a game which featured Tua Tagovailoa struggling to move Miami's offense to such an extent that he was pulled in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick, who didn't have much better luck himself, Sanders' accuracy remains a beacon of consistency for the Dolphins.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: First miss of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted three of four field-goal tries and both of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Chargers.

Sanders' first miss of the season went wide right from 47 yards out in the fourth quarter, but he still boasts a 95 percent field-goal conversion rate on the year. He's seen multiple field-goal tries in four of the last six games.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Keeps perfect streak alive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted both of his field-goal tries and all four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 34-31 win over the Cardinals.

Sanders is now the only kicker in the league with at least 12 field-goal tries and zero misses, per Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site, and both his conversions during Sunday's contest came from 50 or more yards out. The third-year pro hasn't seen the sort of consistent weekly volume that propel him into the mix as a high-end fantasy option, but his accuracy nonetheless provides legitimate value.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: No field-goal attempts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders did not attempt a field goal during Sunday's 28-17 win over the Rams, though he did make all four of his extra-point tries.

Sanders' accuracy remains perfect on the year, leaving him as the only starting placekicker in the league with a 100 percent completion rate on both field goals and extra points. However, he's now seen two or less field-goal tries in five of seven contests, making him a potential low-floor fantasy option heading into an away game against the Cardinals in Week 9.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Leads league in FG percentage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted his sole field-goal try and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 24-0 win over the Jets.

Sanders remains perfect through six contests, having made all 15 of his field-goal attempts and each of his 13 extra-point tries. Not only does his 100 percent conversion rate lead the NFL, as Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald notes, but his 58 points scored is tied for third in the league. Granted, much of Sanders' damage came Week 4 and Week 5 when he accounted for ten combined field goals, but as long as he keeps up the trend of perfect accuracy, he'll warrant serious fantasy consideration.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Remains perfect, setting records
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted all five field-goal attempts and each of his four extra-point tries during Sunday's 43-17 win over the 49ers.

Sanders was automatic in Sunday's upset win, as he has been through the season. Not only is the third-year placekicker perfect through five games, but by beginning the 2020 campaign with 14 consecutive field-goal conversions, he's now set a new franchise record. Coming off back-to-back games with five field goals, Sanders will be a tempting fantasy option for Week 6.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Accounts for 15 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted all five field-goal attempts during Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Seahawks.

Miami's offense was extremely inefficient in the red zone Week 4, resulting in Sanders getting more field-goal opportunities than he had in the last three games combined. The third-year pro remains perfect on the year, and he had a long of 45 yards Sunday. Sanders always carries the risk of turning in just one or two field-goal attempts in a contest, but he's now delivered a glimpse of the ceiling his accuracy can provide when given the opportunity.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Perfect in first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted his sole field-goal attempt and all four extra-point tries during Thursday's 31-13 win over the Jaguars.

Sanders remains perfect on the year, though he's now been held to a single field-goal attempt in two of three games. Despite his flawless accuracy, Sanders' low volume of attempts robs him of a reliable fantasy ceiling.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Banks two long FGs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 33-28 loss to the Bills.

Sanders made a kick from 52 yards just before halftime, and he then nailed his final try from 45 yards on the first drive of the fourth quarter. The third-year pro is perfect on the year through two contests, and he could see a slight uptick in opportunities against the Jaguars on Thursday if the contest evolves into a low-scoring affair.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Converts sole opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders made his only field-goal attempt during Sunday's 21-11 loss to the Patriots.

Sanders' only field-goal try came from 46 yards out. Because Ryan Fitzpatrick opted to run in a two-point conversion after Miami's only touchdown, Sanders wasn't given the opportunity to attempt any extra points. He's got a tough matchup against the Bills on deck Week 2.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Flawless in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders made both his field-goal attempts and all three extra-point tries during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Patriots.

Sanders played his part perfectly during Sunday's upset divisional win. He finishes the season having converted 23 of 30 field-goal tries and 29 of 30 extra-point attempts across 16 contests, though it's worth noting that seven of his field goals came Week 14 against the Jets. Sanders also caught a touchdown Week 13 via a fourth-and-goal trick play. The New Mexico product remains under contract in Miami through 2021.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Nails game-winning kick in OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders made one of two field-goal attempts and all five extra-point tries during Sunday's 38-35 overtime win against the Bengals.

Sanders missed a 47-yard field-goal try in the fourth quarter, but he made up for the error by maintaining perfect accuracy on point-after tries and sealing the contest in OT as time expired. The second-year placekicker was initially listed as questionable for Week 16 due to an illness but managed to play through the issue.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Active as expected Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders (illness) is active for Sunday's Week 16 tilt against the Bengals.

This merely serves as official confirmation of what was already expected, as coach Brian Flores had stated he expected Sanders to play, and the Dolphins had not brought in any other placekickers as a contingency plan. Sanders will thus be available to face a Bengals squad that's allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to kickers (8.6) in standard scoring formats.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Should play despite questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Sanders worked as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but coach Brian Flores indicated he's expected to be fine for Sunday. The 24-year-old should remain on track to play unless the Dolphins add another kicker to the roster by Saturday's roster deadline.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Turns in limited session Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders (illness) was limited in practice Thursday.

Sanders sat out a day prior due to the malady, but his quick return is a positive sign for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Another upgrade to a full practice Friday would be a sure sign he'll give it a go.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Comes down to earth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders made two of three field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries during Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.

While Sanders didn't match Week 14's outlier of eight field-goal attempts, he turned in a solid fantasy performance during Sunday's loss. He's got an advantageous matchup against the Bengals on deck Week 16.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Sets franchise record in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders converted seven of eight field-goal attempts during Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets.

Sanders accounted for all 21 of Miami's points during Sunday's divisional loss, and his seven successful field goals broke the previous franchise record of six set by Olindo Mare in 1999. The second-year pro's outstanding day comes following a Week 13 showing in which he caught a touchdown, becoming the first kicker to do so in more than 40 years. While Sanders can't be counted upon to make franchise history every week, it's certainly encouraging to see him being utilized as a key fixture of a Dolphins' offense that's provided more regular scoring opportunities as of late. He's got a favorable matchup against the Giants on deck Week 15.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Scores via trick play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders made his lone field-goal attempt and two of three extra-point tries during Sunday's 37-31 win over the Eagles. He also caught his only target for one yard and a touchdown.

Sanders missed his first PAT of the season during Sunday's win, but he more than made up for it by hauling in a pass from punter Matt Haack on a fourth-and-goal trick play from Philadelphia's one-yard line. While Sanders can't be counted on to be utilized as a receiver going forward -- he was the first kicker to catch a touchdown pass since Jim Turner in 1977, per Jeff Kerr of CBSSports -- it's encouraging to see the Dolphins' offense operate with increased efficiency, which could allow the second-year pro increased attempts going forward.

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Flawless in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders made his only field-goal try and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 41-24 loss to the Browns.

Sanders continues to be serviceable for the Dolphins this season, but he doesn't warrant fantasy consideration due to the team's inconsistent performance on offense. The second-year pro has a tough matchup against the Eagles on deck Week 13.

November 18, 2019 11:16 AM
Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Converts both PATs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders made both extra-point attempts during Sunday's 37-20 divisional loss to the Bills.

Sanders has now logged four games without a field-goal attempt in 10 contests. His lack of opportunities Sunday came due to Miami's offense stalling with regularity, as has been the norm this season. The second-year pro isn't worth fantasy consideration heading into a Week 12 matchup against the Browns.
