Bills' Tyler Bass: One ugly miss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass was 1-for-2 on field-goal tries and made both of his extra-point attempts in Monday's loss to the Chiefs.

The miss was on a 52-yarder to end the half and was wide enough right to say the golfer's equivalent would be pushing a drive all the way over to the other fairway. The rookie was true on his other three attempts, which all in all isn't too bad on a chilly, misty day, Bass' first experience with Buffalo's sometimes inclement weather. After six weeks, Bass sits in a tie for 23rd in fantasy kicker scoring with 36 points. Part of that is due to the team's 73.9 red-zone touchdown percentage.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Perfect in lopsided loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass made his only field-goal attempt -- a 43-yarder -- and his only extra-point try during Tuesday's loss to the Titans.

Bass could have had one more point, but the Bills did some strategizing and tried to go for two when they scored a fourth-quarter TD and were down by 12. Bass has been pretty true following some Week 1 hiccups by making all three of his field-goals tries between Weeks two and five while converting 13 of 14 extra-point attempts. The Bills' newly found successful offense has been strong in the red zone this season, however, which has kept Bass' attempts in check. He sits in a tie for 22nd in kicker scoring after five weeks, though we tend to think he stands a good chance to bump up from the spot as the Buffalo offense falls back toward the norm in red-zone success.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Misses extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass made a 34-yard field goal and three of four extra-point attempts in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Raiders.

The rookie sixth-rounder hasn't tried a field goal from beyond 40 yards yet this season, but that can be chalked up to the Bills' strong offensive efficiency. However, it's a bit concerning that Bass has attempted just two field goals over the past three weeks, so his fantasy value has been overly reliant on extra points. That's not a great recipe for success, but it may be worth holding onto a kicker tied to this offense.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Limited to extra points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass made all five of his extra-point tries but didn't attempt a field goal in Sunday's 35-32 win over the Rams.

Bass did all that was required of him on a day Buffalo scored all five of its touchdowns from inside the five-yard line. Such efficiency restricted Bass's potential production, but he nonetheless went a second straight week without a miss following his two misfires in Week 1. He's also been excellent on kickoffs, with 83.3 percent of them resulting in touchbacks.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Flawless Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass connected on his only field-goal try -- a 39-yarder -- and made all four extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Miami.

The field goal was ultimately the difference in the 31-28 win, as Bass looked a lot more comfortable than a shaky Week 1 that might have had some questioning why he was kept over longtime veteran Stephen Hauschka. Bass should have some leash as an actual draft pick -- rare for a kicker -- though playing for a team that should be in contention this season and having a number of important games will mean he'll have to produce like he did in Week 2.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Posts first NFL points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass was good on two of four field-goal attempts in Sunday's win over the Jets while converting all three of his extra-point attempts.

The sixth-round rookie who beat out veteran Stephen Hauschka will certainly never forget his first NFL attempt, as replays showed the kick was actually good yet officials inexplicably ruled it as wide right. Bass's second attempt was well off, but he re-grouped to make two shorties (22 and 19) that provided valuable insurance for the Bills. While he looked a little shaky, posting nine points -- and having a legit excuse for one of his misses -- likely keeps Bass in the safe zone for now.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Only kicker in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass is the Bills' only kicker following the release of Stephen Hauschka.

It's not entirely surprising that Bass was kept after being drafted by the Bills in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He's thus poised to replace Hauschka, who had kicked for the team since 2017. The Georgia Southern product has a strong leg, but his fantasy upside as a rookie hinges on how well Buffalo's Josh Allen-helmed offense clicks this season.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Makes push in kicking competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass intensified the Bills' kicking competition with a strong performance in Thursday's practice, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.

Bass is currently aiming to displace veteran kicker Stephen Hauschka ahead of his first NFL season. Although the sixth-rounder started the week with a few misses, his powerful leg was on display Thursday, when he converted six of seven field-goal attempts, including a couple from over 50 yards. In contrast, the 35-year-old Hauschka missed all three of his tries from that range, adding intrigue as the two continue to battle throughout training camp.

Bills' Tyler Bass: To battle with Hauschka
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Special teams coordinator Heath Farwell confirmed Friday that Stephen Hauschka will enter the summer as the team's top kicker, but Bass will have a chance to unseat the veteran in an open competition, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. "Then you have a young player like Tyler who is loaded with talent," Farwell said. "He has a lot of ton of upside, but he's got to prove it in the preseason and training camp."

Hauschka has been Buffalo's kicker for three seasons, and while he's lost some accuracy and leg strength from his Seattle days, he's done fairly well in a tough climate, especially on pressure kicks. Coach Sean McDermott also values leadership, which Hauschka provides. That said, Bass has a booming leg and is the rare kicker that actually got drafted, so it's a competition not to be dismissed. Perhaps with the extra roster flexibility rules for 2020, the Bills might even be sold into keeping two kickers, Hauschka for anything inside 50 and Bass for long kicks and kickoffs.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Signs rookie deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass has signed his rookie deal with the Bills, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bass and his booming leg were taken out of Georgia State in the sixth round of the recent draft. It'll be tough for him to unseat incumbent Stephen Hauschka with what could be a limited tryout this summer, though the Bills did select him for a reason. With slightly expanded rosters there's a decent chance the Bills keep him around, at minimum, as a kickoff and long field goal specialist.

Bills' Tyler Bass: Sixth-round Buffalo selection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills selected Bass in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 188th overall.

Bass (5-foot-10, 185) was a three-year starting kicker at Georgia State, where he made 54 of 68 field goals (79.4 percent). He'll compete with Stephen Hauschka and Kaare Vedvik.
