2020 Fantasy Outlook
Kliff Kingsbury's offense didn't do much for David Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald in 2019, but it did produce the fifth-ranked fantasy kicker, thanks to red-zone struggles and a barrage of chip-shot FGs. Gonzalez led the league in attempts from 30-39 yards and tied for the lead from 20-29. He'll probably trade some of those easy three-pointers for PATs in 2020 but should also see more chances from distance. Read Past Outlooks

Signs tender with Cards

April 23, 2020
Gonzalez signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Cardinals on Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
In his first full season in Arizona last year, Gonzalez finished fourth in the NFL with 127 points, powered by 31 field goals (fourth) and 34 extra points (tied for 15th). His accuracy was on point as well, as evidenced by him making 89 percent of his field-goal attempts and missing just one PAT. The performance was enough for the Cardinals to place a second-round tender on the kicker, who should be among the league leaders yet again in 2020 supplementing an ascendent offense led by Kyler Murray.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
Cut by Cleveland two games into his second season, Gonzalez was signed to Arizona's practice squad last year before joining the roster. The sample is still limited, but career conversion rates of 70.6 percent for field goals and 89.2 percent for extra points don't inspire confidence. While Arizona's offense should be improved, there's no way to know if Gonzalez will even have the job for Week 1.
Drafted in Round 7 last year, Gonzalez was granted a developmental season along with the rest of the perpetually rebuilding Cleveland roster, facing no real threat to his job despite missing one-fourth of his attempts. He converted 25 of 26 extra-point tries, and made eight of nine field-goal attempts after Week 8. The Browns would need massive improvement just to bring Gonzalez to the edge of fantasy relevance.
Selected in the seventh round of this year's draft, Gonzalez is expected to compete with Cody Parkey for the starting job. Parkey was solid in 14 games with the Browns last year, connecting on 80 percent of his 25 attempts, though his 21 PAT attempts (he made 20) left him as the lowest-scoring kicker among those who made as many appearances. Regardless of who wins the job, the Browns' kicker isn't likely to be a strong fantasy option this year given the team's expected struggles offensively.
