2021 Fantasy Outlook
Perhaps best known for his prowess on onside kicks, Koo has also been excellent at the main part of his job, leading all kickers in fantasy points since he took over in Atlanta midway through the 2019 season. He's converted 60 of 65 field-goal attempts in a Falcons uniform, including each of his nine tries from 50-plus yards. An NFC South schedule doesn't hurt, especially with the Falcons playing under a retractable roof. Read Past Outlooks

Koo has re-signed with the Falcons, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Although he's been in the NFL since 2017, the 26-year-old kicker only has two accrued seasons, which means he won't become a restricted free agent until spring 2022. Koo finished 2020 as the league leader in field goals made (37), notably going 8-of-8 from 50-plus yards out. He should be drafted in any league that uses kickers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2017
Koo's name makes him a fan favorite, and his excellent work in eight games last season made him especially popular in Atlanta. In addition to leading kickers in per-game fantasy scoring, Koo gained added notoriety with back-to-back successful onside kicks (plus another wiped out by a penalty) on Thanksgiving. The Falcons could bring in competition, but Koo will be favored to win the gig.
Koo will have a chance to earn the starting job after incumbent Josh Lambo struggled mightily throughout the 2016 season. While the undrafted free agent may be known more for his trick shot videos than kicking acumen, his strong leg and reasonable accuracy could help topple the less-than-sturdy perch that Lambo currently sits a top.
