2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Koo is expected to miss time due to the groin strain he played through during Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Bears, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Koo managed to tough out his injury Sunday loss, but he wasn't able to handle kickoff duties and also missed one field-goal try and an extra-point attempt. Depending on the severity of the issue, the Falcons could consider placing Koo on IR for a minimum of three weeks. Cameron Nizialek is a candidate to be promoted from the practice squad, though Atlanta could also opt to delve into the free-agent kicker market.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
