New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein drilled both of his field goal attempts last week and will hope to have similar success against the Houston Texans in Week 14. The Jets' offense could be improved on Sunday with Zach Wilson back under center but still does not instill much confidence for fantasy purposes. With the Texans limiting opponents to fewer than 21 points per contest this season, Zuerlein should remain on waiver wires in most redraft leagues.

New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein converted on just one of his two extra-point tries in a Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The 35-year-old will look to bounce back against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Although Atlanta has given up a fair amount of production to kickers this season, New York's offense cannot be trusted to move the ball effectively with Tim Boyle under center. Even with multiple teams on bye this week, fantasy managers should be able to find more reliable options than Zuerlein on waivers.

New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein did not attempt a single field goal or extra point in a blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills last week. The 35-year-old will look to be more involved in a Week 12 bout with the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are surrendering plenty of points to opposing offenses, but New York is struggling to score and will be starting Tim Boyle at quarterback on Friday. Boyle has shown very little in his 18 career appearances, so Zuerlein cannot be expected to have many opportunities. Fantasy managers should be able to find better options available on waiver wires.

New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein was excellent in Week 10, drilling all four of his field goal attempts, including three of at least 40 yards. He will hope to keep rolling in a Week 11 road matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Zuerlein could be busy once again if the Jets are able to move the ball without finding the end zone, but it's difficult to project New York for much success with the Bills surrendering just over 16 points per game at home. Fantasy managers should look elsewhere for production this week as Zuerlein can't be trusted in a potentially low-scoring affair.
Nov 17, 2023 11:07 PM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein connected on both of his field goal attempts in a Week 9 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He'll be hoping to see the field more against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday night. Unfortunately, this contest has the lowest-projected point total of the week, and Las Vegas has surrendered the 11th-fewest fantasy points per game to kickers this season. With New York's offense struggling to move the ball, Zuerlein should remain out of starting fantasy lineups in Week 10.
Nov 10, 2023 9:51 PM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein drilled both of his field goal attempts and was successful on his lone extra-point try of an overtime victory against the New York Giants in Week 8. He'll hope to carry this momentum into a Week 9 bout with the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers have not been particularly vulnerable against fantasy kickers this season but their defense allows the second-most offensive yards per game. If the Jets move the football effectively, Zuerlein could be in for a busy night as the team has struggled to find the end zone. Fantasy managers in need of an option this week can consider Zuerlein on Monday night.
Nov 3, 2023 8:28 PM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein converted on all four of his field goal attempts in Week 6 and will now return from a bye to face the New York Giants in Week 8. The Giants have been surprisingly stout against kickers this season, allowing the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. Until the Jets' offense can show signs of consistency, it will be difficult to trust Zuerlein for fantasy purposes. The 35-year-old will be a middling streaming option this week.
Oct 27, 2023 9:32 PM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein was excellent in Week 5, drilling all five of his field goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries. He'll look to stay consistent in Week 6 but may not have many opportunities against a tough Philadelphia Eagles defense. Kickers have found very little success against the Eagles in 2023, averaging just 3.6 fantasy points per game when facing them. Zuerlein will have some productive showings throughout the season but cannot be trusted as a fantasy option this week.
Oct 13, 2023 8:20 PM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein missed a 52-yard field goal in Week 4 but will look to improve in a Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos. While the Broncos' defense has struggled mightily this season, it is still far from a guarantee that New York's offense will be able to move the ball successfully. Until the Jets prove that they can score consistently, Zuerlein should not be considered a reliable fantasy option.

New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein (groin) is officially active for Week 3 versus the New England Patriots. He had been listed as questionable, but it seemed likely that he would play after the Jets opted against adding another kicker to their roster on Saturday. Although Zuerlein is healthy, poor offensive play coupled with adverse weather conditions have rendered the veteran an unappealing option in fantasy football leagues this week.
Sep 24, 2023 11:38 AM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein (groin) was a limited participant at practice on Thursday, per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record. The 35-year-old missed Week 2 with a groin injury while Austin Seibert filled in, but Thursday's return to the field puts him on track for a possible Week 3 return against the division-foe New England Patriots. Fantasy managers will want to check back for Friday's injury report to clarify Zuerlein's status if they're looking to play him on Sunday. "Legatron" could be worthy of streaming consideration in what projects to be a closely-contested matchup against the Pats, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to kickers over the first two weeks.
Sep 22, 2023 12:55 AM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein (groin) is officially inactive for Week 2 versus the Dallas Cowboys. He had been ruled out on Saturday, prompting the Jets to sign Austin Seibert as a temporarily fill-in. Seibert isn't on the fantasy radar.
Sep 17, 2023 3:37 PM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein was solid in his 2023 debut and will look to stay productive in a Week 2 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately for Zuerlein, this contest has one of the lowest projected point totals of the week, and the Jets' offense could struggle to move the ball downfield with Zach Wilson at quarterback against a tough defensive opponent. Zuerlein could be a fantasy streaming candidate at certain points this season, but fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a starting option this week.
Sep 15, 2023 4:05 PM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein (groin) isn't practicing on Friday due to a groin injury, and head coach Robert Saleh said it is "50/50" that Zuerlein plays in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. The Jets will work out kickers on Friday in the event that Zuerlein isn't able to suit up this weekend. Fantasy managers that were planning on running with the 35-year-old veteran booter in Week 2 should go in another direction at this point to be safe. Greg the Leg lost a lot of fantasy appeal once quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending left Achilles tear in the season opener, too. He went 3-for-3 on his field goals in the Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills and made his lone extra-point attempt.
Sep 15, 2023 11:22 AM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein drilled all three of his field goal attempts and was successful on his lone extra-point try in a 22-16 win over the Buffalo Bills. Zuerlein was busy on Monday night and may have plenty of opportunities going forward with quarterback Aaron Rodgers (ankle) feared to have suffered a significant injury. With Zach Wilson, Mike White, and Joe Flacco under center in 2022, Zuerlein converted on 30 of his 37 attempts and finished as a top-12 fantasy kicker. The 35-year-old is worth a look for fantasy managers needing an option at the position.
Sep 12, 2023 12:42 AM EST
New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein will begin his second season with the team in a Monday night divisional showdown against the Buffalo Bills. Zuerlein has been steady throughout his career and could be productive for fantasy purposes in 2023 if the Jets' offense takes a step up with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. Fantasy managers may want to check for other options in Week 1, however, as the Bills surrendered just over 19 points per contest in 2022, the fourth-fewest in the NFL.
Sep 8, 2023 11:56 PM EST
Zuerlein connected on all three of his field-goal attempts and his lone PAT attempt in Thursday's 21-16 preseason loss to Cleveland.
