Michael Badgley
25-Year-Old KickerK
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Badgley's emergence in 2018 appeared to solve the Chargers' infamous kicking woes, but the team's problems returned in 2019 when he missed the first two months of the season with a groin injury. Badgley came back in November and stabilized the situation, likely doing enough to lock down the job for this year. The offense is now the big concern, with Philip Rivers gone and the line still looking shaky. Read Past Outlooks

Perfect from inside 45 yards
KLos Angeles Chargers
January 4, 2020
Badgley converted on 13 of his 16 field-goal attempts in 2019 and did not miss any of his 19 extra points.
ANALYSIS
A groin injury ultimately cost Badgley the first eight games of the season, but the second-year kicker returned in Week 9 and proceeded to be a reliable option from 45 yards or less. All three of Badgley's misses came from 46 yards or longer, however, but considering the team's struggles to find a consistent kicker in past seasons, it's unlikely the 24-year-old will have much competition at the position in 2020.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Badgley ended the Chargers' kicking curse last year, but his fantasy output (7.9 ppg) was modest as the team ranked 10th in red-zone TD percentage (64.2). The Chargers finished 11th in yards and sixth in points but only 17th in FG attempts - partially a product of not trusting Caleb Sturgis, whom Badgley replaced for good after Week 9. Badgley might still be on a short leash, but the Chargers will score plenty of points.
