2018 Fantasy Outlook
Tucker is a true anomaly, particularly in the realm of fantasy football. Despite spending his entire career on teams with mediocre or subpar offenses, he's never finished worse than ninth at his position in fantasy points, thanks to career hit rates of 70.2 percent from 50-plus yards and 90.7 percent from 40-49. Tucker is the best kicker in NFL history, and the Ravens create turnovers to make up for their poor offense. Read Past Outlooks

Perfect day at the office

Tucker knocked through his only field goal attempt from 28 yards and converted each of his three extra point attempts during Sunday's 27-24 loss to Kansas City.
ANALYSIS
It was a typical day at the office for Tucker, who is now 26-for-28 on the season. Tucker's six points ended his streak of four consecutive games with at least 10 points, but that is more of a product of opportunity than anything else. The 29-year-old has used this season as a platform to unequivocally prove he still has plenty left in the tank.

Tucker led the league in made field goals last year and was one of five qualified kickers to make every PAT attempt. Despite finishing 26th in extra-point attempts, Tucker was the second-highest scoring kicker, helped by his league-high 97.4 percent field-goal conversion rate. He was solid from distance too, as he was 24 of 24 from 40-plus yards, including 10 of 10 from 50-plus. The Ravens' offense isn't expected to make a leap this year, but Tucker's accuracy, especially from deep, should keep him as one of the highest scoring kickers.
The Ravens' offense has been up and down in recent years, but Tuckers fantasy production has been steady. He has ranked in the top-10 in kicker scoring in each of the last three seasons, while the team has ranked 25th, eighth and 25th in scoring over that span, respectively. Some kickers struggled with the new extended PAT distance, but Tucker hit every single one of his attempts (it's worth noting that his 29 kicks were fewer than all but three teams had). Tuckers only problem over the past two seasons is his accuracy from deep, as he's hit only 8 of 19 from at least 50 yards, but with just one miss from inside that distance in those years, he's certainly consistent enough to be a very solid option in most leagues.
Tucker hit more than 90 percent of his field-goal opportunities in his first two seasons, and while he fell to 85.3 percent last season, he was arguably better. His decline is attributed to going 4-of-9 from long distance. He didn't miss a single attempt inside 50 yards last season after missing two in each of his first two years. The Ravens' offense was up-and-down, which correlated with Tucker's usage, though it still finished eighth in points with Tucker finishing 10th in kicker scoring. The offense could look much different this season with Marc Trestman now calling plays. Under Trestman last year, the Bears attempted a league-low 16 field goals, partly because of a middling 47 red-zone trips and partly because once inside the red zone they were highly efficient, ranking third in touchdown percentage.
Tucker’s performance in Week 15 against the Lions on Monday Night Football may have been the pinnacle of kicker achievement, as the 24-year-old went 6-for-6 in the victory, capping the night with a go-ahead 61-yarder in the final minute.Tucker was no one-week wonder, though; he would conclude the season with a league-leading 38 field goals, greatly benefitting from a Ravens offense that often struggled to find the end zone once they reached opposing territory. With a 91.9 percent success rate from the field and a 10-for-11 mark from 50-plus yards over his two seasons, Tucker has already established himself as one of the best kickers in the NFL. That designation should elevate him above those of his peers who are supported by similarly average offenses like the Ravens.
Just one season after Ravens fans watched Billy Cundiff shank away the AFC Championship, Tucker, an undrafted rookie, brought uncanny poise to the kicking game for the Super Bowl champions. His crowning moment came in the wild double-overtime playoff game against the Broncos when he hit a game-winning 47-yarder to silence the raucous Denver crowd. Tucker delivered during the regular season, too, hitting 30-of-33 field goals, including a 4-for-4 mark from 50-plus. The Ravens offense should again provide ample kicking chances for Tucker, whose 132 points ranked eighth last year.
