Jason Myers News
The Seattle Seahawks are expected to sign free-agent kicker Jason Myers to an undisclosed deal after his Pro Bowl season with the Jets in 2018, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Myers made 33 of his 36 field-goal tries, including an NFL-record five field goals of 55 yards or more. The 27-year-old will be Seattle's new kicker, replacing veteran Sebastian Janikowski.
New York Jets kicker Jason Myers was basically the only reason that the Jets had a chance during the Week 13 loss to the Titans. Myers knocked down five field goals and totaled 16 of the Jets 22 points. He knocked down a 54 yard field goal and was a perfect 5-for-5 during the 26-22 loss. The Jets offense doesn't seem to be able to score touchdowns, so Myers is seeing plenty of work. Myers is a sleeper kicker option as the fantasy playoffs approach.
New York Jets placekicker Jason Myers edged out Taylor Bertolet for the starting job in the preseason, but it's uncertain if he'll open the season in that capacity. The team is working out former Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey on Monday, and it's hard to envision the club retaining a middle of the road kicker when they could sign the second-most accurate kicker in league history, albeit at a higher price tag. Even Bailey leaves the training facility without a deal on Monday, Myers might keep the job. However, he is still nothing more than a streaming option in deeper fantasy leagues for when bye weeks hit.
The New York Jets released placekicker Cairo Santos (groin), and he has been replaced on the roster by placekicker Jason Myers. The latter was claimed off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. Santos was unable to kick during training camp due to a nagging groin injury which he suffered late during the 2017 season as a member of the Chicago Bears. Head coach Todd Bowles said that another kicker could potentially be added to the mix, as Myers and Taylor Bertolet are currently the only kickers on the roster. Whomever wins the job isn't worth a fantasy spot at this point.
Seattle Seahawks veteran place kicker Sebastian Janikowski made all five of his field goal tries, including a 53-yarder, during a scrimmage on Monday. Meanwhile, Jason Myers missed two of his four tries, with his misses coming from 33 and 43 yards. Janikowski certainly has the experience factor in his favor and could be leading the competition for the starting job so far. With Seattle's offense a work in progress, whoever wins this battle won't be particularly attractive in fantasy drafts.
