Blake Grupe Should Be Avoided In Week 18

New Orleans Saints rookie kicker Blake Grupe put together a strong fantasy output in the Week 17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, converting 2-of-2 extra points and 3-of-3 field goals. Prior to the win, Grupe had only attempted two field goals in four weeks. In a game that is projected to be a lower-scoring game, Grupe should be passed on for other kickers in Week 18 against the Atlanta Falcons. While the rookie has been perfect on extra points, he has only converted 80% of his field goal attempts this season.

Avoid Blake Grupe In Fantasy Championship Week

New Orleans Saints rookie kicker Blake Grupe has continued to have limited field goal opportunities in recent weeks. In Week 16 against the Rams, Grupe did not attempt a field goal but went 2-for-2 on extra point attempts. The rookie has only attempted two field goals over the last four weeks. While the matchup against Tampa Bay is not a detrimental one (8.1 fantasy points per game allowed to kickers), Grupe's recent field goal volume suggests that fantasy managers should look elsewhere on championship weekend.

Blake Grupe Cannot Be Trusted In Week 16

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe rebounded in Week 15 against the New York Giants. Grupe was a perfect 3-for-3 on extra points and drilled his lone field goal attempt from 50 yards out. Grupe and the Saints are set to take on the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night. While Grupe has not been awful, he has not been great for fantasy purposes and has only attempted two field goals over the past three weeks. The lack of opportunity should prompt fantasy managers to look elsewhere in the playoff semifinals despite the fact that the Rams have allowed the ninth-most fantasy points per game to opposing kickers.

Blake Grupe Should Be Avoided In Week 15

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe has now posted back-to-back disappointing weeks. While he was a perfect 4-for-4 on extra points against Carolina in Week 14, he missed his lone field goal attempt from 29 yards out. The New York Giants have been a tough matchup for kickers this season, allowing an average of 6.9 fantasy points per game. With Grupe's recent struggles teamed with a bad matchup, fantasy managers should look elsewhere for their kicker during the fantasy playoffs.

Blake Grupe Active For Week 14

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe (right groin) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. He had been listed as questionable. While there was some concern about the rookie's status given that the injury was to his kicking leg, he'll ultimately suit up against one of the NFL's worst teams. As long as he's near 100 percent, he's worth deploying as a top-12 kicking option in fantasy football.

Blake Grupe Questionable For Week 14

Despite practicing in full all week, New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe (groin) is listed as questionable to play in Week 14 on Sunday against the visiting Carolina Panthers. Grupe was also questionable going into last week's loss to the Detroit Lions, but he suited up and made all four of his extra-point tries while not attempting a single field goal. The 25-year-old is a pretty safe bet to play again this weekend, especially after the Saints waived Austin Seibert from their practice squad this week. Against the Panthers, Grupe will serve as a decent low-end streamer for fantasy managers in Week 14, although most of New Orleans' starting offensive skill players are listed as questionable on the injury report, including quarterback Derek Carr (concussion, ribs, shoulder).

Blake Grupe Looks To Bounce Back In Week 14

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe drilled all four extra-point attempts in Week 13's 33-28 loss to Detroit but did not attempt a field goal, which limited his fantasy production. Grupe will look to bounce back against a Carolina Panthers team that allows the second-most points per game in the NFL. He should have a safe floor this week, given that Carolina surrenders 26.1 points per game to opponents. Start Grupe as a low-end kicker in Week 14.

Blake Grupe Active In Week 13

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe (groin) was listed as questionable to play in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, but he's officially active and will kick against the Lions. The 25-year-old apparently was injured in last week's loss to the Atlanta Falcons and was limited in practice all week. Grupe has been a top-10 fantasy kicker in his first year in the NFL in 2023, making 24 of his 30 field-goal attempts, including five of eight from 50-plus yards, and all 19 of his extra-point tries in 11 games for the Saints. Against a Lions defense that has looked worn down the last few weeks, Grupe should be a solid fantasy option while also kicking indoors.

Blake Grupe Uncertain For Week 13

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe (groin) is listed as questionable heading into the Week 13 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Grupe has been limited in practice all week, so his status for Sunday appears legitimately up in the air. As a result, the Saints worked out Mason Crosby and James McCourt this week. The Saints will likely wait until closer to Sunday before signing another kicker. Given the current state of the Saints offense, no kicker is going to have much value this weekend for the Saints. It's hard to imagine the Saints having a ton of success moving the ball given with the amount of injuries they have on offense right now.

Blake Grupe Logs Back-To-Back Limited Practices

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe is on the injury report with a right groin injury and has logged back-to-back limited practices. Grupe had a career fantasy day in Week 12 against Atlanta as he knocked down five field goals on a day when New Orleans struggled to find the end zone. Grupe did miss a 54-yard field goal near the end of the game but was perfect on his five other attempts. With Chris Olave (concussion protocol), Rashid Shaheed (thigh), and Michael Thomas (knee) banged up, New Orleans may struggle again to find the end zone against the Detroit Lions in Week 13. Grupe should again have opportunities to convert field goals if he plays Sunday, making him a streamable kicker option coming off of his best fantasy output of the season, but his injury status should be monitored. New Orleans signed kicker Austin Seibert to the practice squad on Tuesday, adding insurance in the case that Grupe is unable to play on Sunday.
