The Pittsburgh Steelers are sticking with kicker Chris Boswell despite his three missed extra points this year and three missed field goals. "This guy has delivered for us a lot the last few years," head coach Mike Tomlin said. Despite Boswell's struggles, he remains in play in fantasy as well with the Steelers offense capable of putting up plenty of points each and every week.
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell is a definite start here in Week 2. Although he missed his only field goal attempt in Week 1, conditions weren't great and he was perfect on three extra-point attempts. In Week 2, Boswell will be in a high-scoring affair against the Kansas City Chiefs. With both teams likely to be flying up and down the field, Boswell should get multiple opportunities in this one. Start Boswell with confidence.
Pittsburgh Steelers beat reporter Ed Bouchette expects the team and kicker Chris Boswell to agree to a new long-term contract. The team tendered the restricted free agent at a second-round level this offseason and he will play the 2018 season on a one-year, $2.91 million contract. It appears likely that the two sides will hammer out a long-term extension before Boswell becomes an unrestricted free agent. Boswell should see plenty of scoring chances playing with an explosive Steelers offense.
