2021 Fantasy Outlook
Despite winning the Lou Groza Award in college, Blankenship wasn't selected in the 2020 draft. The Colts ended up benefitting from the oversight, though the rookie did have a big miss in the team's playoff loss to Buffalo. Overall, Blankenship had a solid year, missing only five kicks (including PATs) inside of 50 yards. He may not have the strongest leg, but he's an accurate kicker on a solid team. Read Past Outlooks

2020 Fantasy Outlook
With Adam Vinatieri no longer in the mix, Blankenship -- a 2020 undrafted free agent -- and 2019 late-season replacement Chase McLaughlin, faced off for the Colts' placekicking job this summer. It was a job won by Blankenship. During his college career with Georgia, Blankenship made 80 of his 97 field goal attempts (81.8 percent) and hit all 200 of his extra points.
