2020 Fantasy Outlook
Myers parlayed his Pro Bowl 2018 season with the Jets into a four-year, $15.45 million contract with Seattle. He then missed five FGs in the regular season and two more in the playoffs, but the contract should protect him for at least one more year. While Myers is attached to an efficient offense, the slow pace of play combined with Russell Wilson's red-zone brilliance create a suboptimal context for FG volume. Read Past Outlooks

Myers connected on both field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.
ANALYSIS
Myers hit field goals from 50 and 52 yards, capping off a perfect season in terms of field-goal attempts. The 29-year-old made all 26 field-goal tries over 18 games this season, including four attempts from beyond 50 yards and 15 attempts from beyond 40 yards. Myers has now hit 37 consecutive field goals dating back to the 2019 season, and he'll look to keep that streak running in 2021, as he's under contract for two more years.

Myers pulled off an impressive feat in 2018, tying for third in kicker fantasy scoring on a Jets team ranked 23rd in points and 29th in yards. His reward was a Pro Bowl appearance followed by a contract in Seattle, where the presence of Russell Wilson creates a path to a repeat performance. Granted, Myers struggled prior to last season, missing 15 field goals and 12 PATs in 38 games for Jacksonville in 2015-2017.
After playing just six games for the Jaguars in 2017, Myers was released when he missed two of three field goals Week 6, bringing his season mark to 73 percent with no makes over 50 yards. The Seahawks picked him up to be ready in case veteran Sebastian Janikowski can't return to his past self. However, if Janikowski can, Myers will hit the road.
Myers set career-highs in field-goal attempts and makes last year, though he struggled with his accuracy, finishing as one of nine kickers below 80 percent. That being said, five of his seven misses were from 50-plus yards, and he led the league with 12 attempts from that distance. The Jags' offense struggled as a whole, so even if Myers had made all of his 50-yarders, he still would have finished only 10th in scoring. The Jags appear ready to improve offensively this year, which could allow Myers to move up the scoring ranks, though he's unlikely to be a top option.
The Jaguars' offense improved significantly last season, which subsequently improved the kicking game, as 110 points from the position ranked 17th league-wide after finishing 32nd and 31st in the last two years, respectively, thanks to only 23 and 22 PAT attempts in those seasons. Myers' 86.7 percent field-goal accuracy ranked 14th, though he was the worst kicker in the league with the new extra point, hitting just 32 of 39. While hitting them all wouldn't have drastically improved his fantasy value, there's reason to believe he won't repeat the struggles, given that he hit 17-of-18 field goals from inside 40 yards last season. If the Jags' offense can continue to grow, Myers' fantasy production should follow.
Myers will be Jacksonville's placekicker after the team traded away Josh Scobee to the Steelers.
