2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Not facing much competition

Maher doesn't appear to have serious competition for the kicker job, Mickey Spagnola of the Cowboys' official website reports.
The Cowboys signed Kasey Redfern, a punter who also served as a kicker during his college career at Wofford. He's a threat to punter Chris Jones more so than Maher, though neither specialist seems especially likely to lose his job. Maher missed seven field-goal attempts last season, but he converted six of seven tries from 50-plus yards, including kicks from 62 and 59 yards out. The impressive range combined with above-average team context makes Maher a reasonable selection at the end of fantasy drafts.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.
