2020 Fantasy Outlook
Sanders bested the expectations for volume last season, but he shanked seven FG attempts, including four from 40-49 yards. He was much better as a rookie the year before, and the Dolphins aren't expected to bring in another candidate for the kicking job. Even so, a rebuilding franchise isn't exactly fertile ground for kicker fantasy production, likely leaving Sanders another year away from relevance. Read Past Outlooks

Sanders is signing a five-year, $22 million extension that includes $10 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The new deal keeps Sanders under contract with the Dolphins through 2026, his age-30/31 season. The 2018 seventh-round pick has converted 86.5 percent of field-goal attempts and 98 percent of PATs through 48 NFL games, peaking in 2020 when he converted eight of nine tries from 50 yards or more. For his career, Sanders has made 12 of 15 (80 percent) from 50-plus, and 24 of 32 (75 percent) in the 40-49 range. He's good enough to warrant fantasy consideration even if the Miami offense appears mediocre again.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
A seventh-round pick last year, Sanders did a nice job with his limited opportunities on a bad Dolphins team, making a strong case to get more chances from long distance this season. He's probably looking at another low-volume season as the team sets out on a rebuilding project under new coach Brian Flores, with Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick surrounded by a subpar supporting cast and a bad defense.
Selected in the seventh round of this year's draft, Sanders converted only 25 of 35 field-goal attempts at New Mexico State, but his leg strength apparently made an impression. The Dolphins plan to bring in a veteran or an undrafted rookie to compete for the job, after allowing Cody Parkey to leave for Chicago. Parkey only got 23 field-goal attempts and 29 PAT tries in 16 games for a miserable Miami team last year.
