Los Angeles Chargers kicker Michael Badgley wasnt expected to be terribly active on Thursday night, but he still made sure to get the job done. Badgley knocked through three extra points on the Chargers first three touchdowns, and he was willing to drill the tying one as well, if the coaches had decided to play for overtime. Instead, Badgley was kept on the sideline and head coach Anthony Lynn may have won himself the Coach of the Year award by completing a two-point conversion in the final seconds of regulation to bring back the win. Badgley returns to sunny SoCal next week for a matchup with the Ravens.
Los Angeles Chargers kicker Michael Badgley took home the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award this week, thanks in part to his franchise-record 59-yard field goal on Sunday. Now he gets rewarded by having to kick in the windy, rainy, freezing cold conditions of Kansas City, Missouri on Thursday night. Badgley has been nothing short of a miracle for an LA team whose kicking woes go back further than their name, but this week will be a true test of his mettle. Fantasy owners should probably look for their kicking points in a different game unless they have no other reasonable options. The conditions are simply expected to be too nasty to allow for a dependable leg.
Los Angeles Chargers kicker Michael Badgley was working with a different kind of magic in Week 14. To cap off a ridiculous drive at the end of the first half, Badgley drilled a 59-yard kick that was truly a thing of beauty. He would finish the day 4-for-4 on field goals, which proved critical in the 26-21 win over the Bengals. Badgley has been leaps and bounds better than anyone imagined and getting to kick in sunny southern California probably doesnt hurt either. Badgley has gone from just another kicker that was expected to be a failure on the Chargers to a must-own that shouldnt be available in any serious fantasy league.
