2020 Fantasy Outlook
Maher had a league-high 10 missed field goals in 2019, eventually getting cut by Dallas after Week 14. He converted all of his extra-point attempts, and he's made 10 of 15 kicks from 50-plus yards in two seasons, but the inconsistency suggests Maher won't necessarily beat out Sam Ficken for the kicking job in New York. In any case, the offense isn't likely to provide a ton of volume for its kicker. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Maher struggled with the Cowboys this season, making just 20 of his 30 field-goal tries in 13 games before getting cut in favor of Kai Forbath. The former Cornhusker will get a shot at redemption with New York in 2020.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The 29-year-old Maher finally got his shot in the NFL last year and responded with a solid campaign. He missed two kicks from 30-39 yards and four from 40-49, but made up for it by converting six of seven from 50-plus yards. Maher's strong work on extra-point attempts alleviates some of the concern about accuracy, and he'll have plenty of kicking opportunities if Dallas maintains its late-2018 momentum.
After spending last season in the CFL as a combo kicker/punter, Maher will provide some competition in camp for Cowboys' incumbents Dan Bailey and Chris Jones. Bailey's back issues in 2017 make him slightly more vulnerable, but in all likelihood Maher is just auditioning for other teams in case an injury strikes.
