RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Walsh supplied the best rookie kicking campaign in NFL history in 2012, showing deft accuracy (92.1 percent) and unprecedented leg strength with an NFL-record 10 field goals of 50-plus yards en route to a Pro Bowl nod. While it remains to be seen how he'll fare once the Vikings relocate outdoors in 2014, for now, he should thrive under the shelter of the Metrodome, providing plenty of opportunities for more long field goals. The only mark against Walsh’s outlook is an offense that's average at best, especially when opposing defenses find ways to contain Adrian Peterson. The Vikings afforded Walsh only 36 PATs last season, 16th in the league, but many of those setbacks turned into field-goal opportunities as Walsh ranked third with 38 field-goal attempts. And, thanks to his big leg, if the offense can advance to the opponent’s 40-yard line, there's a good chance Walsh will come away with three points.

2012

Walsh replaces the veteran Ryan Longwell, who was cut by the Vikings to save cap room. Drafted in the sixth round out of Georgia, Walsh was erratic for the Bulldogs in 2011, missing 14 of 35 attempts. The Vikings hope Walsh can demonstrate the form he showed in his previous two seasons, as he hit 40 of 45 attempts. Walsh has a big leg, having made a 56-yarder last year, but he’ll likely be pushed by a veteran free agent in training camp and could get cut if he proves too inaccurate.
