Santos had enjoyed a perfect first two games in a Buccaneers uniform heading into Sunday, but his unblemished record was sullied fairly early on against the Saints. Santos' early-second-quarter 46-yard attempt hit the right upright, while his 40-yard try to end Tampa's first drive of the second half went wide right altogether. The veteran kicker at least did maintain his perfect tally on extra points, but given the team's struggles to find consistency at the kicker position in recent seasons, his two misses are likely more cause for concern than they would be on other clubs. Santos could find opportunities for redemption at a premium Week 15, as the Bucs draw an unenviable road matchup versus the stingy Ravens defense.
Santos continued his flawless streak to open his Buccaneers career, as he's now 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 11-for-11 on extra-point tries over his first three games in Tampa. Granted, the 27-year-old has yet to be tested from distance, as the longest of Santos' three field-goal attempts has come from just 41 yards. Nevertheless, the stability he's brought to the position since taking over for Chandler Catanzaro has been noticeable, and he should continue enjoying a fair share of scoring opportunities over the last four contests of 2018.
So far so good for Santos in a Tampa uniform, as he made good on his pair of field-goal tries with the Bucs while also remaining perfect on extra points. If the veteran can maintain a similar caliber of performance moving forward, he'll be one of the better fantasy options at his position down the season's stretch run.
Santos maximized his opportunities, drilling every extra-point try he was afforded. The veteran kicker has the talent to stabilize the team's placekicking position, considering he brought a respectable 84.1 percent career success rate into Tampa. He'll look to log his first field-goal opportunities in a Week 12 matchup versus the 49ers.
The front office decided to move on after previous placekicker Chandler Catanzaro missed two field goals during Sunday's 16-3 loss to the Redskins. Since serving as the Chiefs' primary kicker from 2014 through 2016, Santos has made just seven appearances between the Chiefs, Bears and Rams the last two seasons, primarily due to spending most of 2017 on injured reserve. Still, in those outings, he nailed nine of 11 field-goal attempts and 19 of 20 point-after tries, which equates to 6.6 points per game.
