Player Notes

  • Nick Folk (knee) limited at practice Wednesday
    Nick Folk (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice. 

    Advice: Folk, third in the league in field goal attempts through six weeks, was listed on New England's injury report with a left knee issue. His status is worth monitoring ahead of a superb Week 7 matchup against the Jets, who have allowed 3.2 field goal tries per game this season. Wednesday, 5:45 pm

  • Washington releases veteran K Dustin Hopkins
    Washington released K Dustin Hopkins.

    Advice: Hopkins, 31, was in his seventh season with Washington, but the team is moving forward with Chris Blewitt after Hopkins missed a kick last week against the Chiefs. On the year, he's 12-of-14 on field goals and 10-of-12 on extra points. His field goal rate was below average the previous two seasons, so Hopkins was on thin ice with the team. Wednesday, 11:01 am

  • WFT signs K Chris Blewitt, releases Dustin Hopkins
    Washington released K Dustin Hopkins and signed K Chris Blewitt.

    Advice: Hopkins had been Washington's kicker since 2015, making 84% of his field goal attempts. Coming off a down year in 2020, Washington decided to move on from the 31 year old, following a week when Hopkins missed a 42 yard attempt against the Chiefs. Blewitt made 70% of his career field goal attempts in a four year career at Pittsburgh. He has yet to log a professional attempt, but that will likely change against the Packers in Week 7.

  • Jags release Josh Lambo after Wright's game winner
    Jaguars released K Josh Lambo. 

    Advice: The Jaguars had little choice but to cut ties with their kicker of five seasons. Lambo had whiffed on all three of his field goal attempts and two extra points this season. He was inactive in Week 5 against the Dolphins and backup kicker Matthew Wright drilled all three of his field goal tries, including a game-winning kick that temporarily relieved Urban Meyer's suffering. Lambo was once among the league's most accurate kickers, making 71 of his 75 field goal tries (94.6 percent) from 2017 to 2019. Wright shouldn't be considered a reliable fantasy option on a Jacksonville team that generates almost no positive game script. Lambo, meanwhile, has a good shot of landing on another team as a fill-in kicker. Tuesday, 5:18 am

  • Wil Lutz (groin) designated to return from IR
    Saints designated Wil Lutz (groin) to return from injured reserve.

    Advice: Lutz will return to practice this week after missing the Saints' first five games of the season while recovering from core muscle surgery. Aldrick Rosas opened the year as New Orleans' starting kicker before getting cut. Cody Parkey was then signed but landed on injured reserve after one game. If healthy, the timing on Lutz's return will work out perfectly. He has a 21-day window to be officially activated. Monday, 1:51 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Rodrigo Blankenship (hip) ruled out vs. the Texans
    Colts declared K Rodrigo Blankenship (hip) out against the Texans.

    Advice: Blankenship did not look right on Monday Night Football, and will now miss at least a week of action. Around The NFL has reported that the Colts have worked out Brett Maher and Michael Badgley as potential replacements. The Colts offense lacks the potency to make the their new kicker particularly relevant, but the Texans do at least play in a dome, which is good place to kick footballs. Oct 15, 11:08 am
