Folk missed three more field goals this week against the Patriots. Ideally, the Bucs kicker should have fantasy value, given the talent of the offense and the ability to move the ball.

Bucs, Dolphins opener postponed until Week 11

Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 10:31am - [Full Article]

The NFL officially postponed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Miami Dolphins tilt until Week 11.

With Hurricane Irma gaining steam as it moves toward South Florida, the league announced the matchup will be moved from Sunday to Sunday, Nov. 19. Both the Bucs and Dolphins had a bye in Week 11.

The news means that Miami and Tampa will play 16 straight games to close out the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Setting aside the danger of a Category 5 hurricane barreling down on Florida, the fantasy ramifications of the move to Week 11 are significant. Owners counting on any of the Bucs or Dolphins to play in Week 1 are going to have to look elsewhere. These issues show up most often in "onesie" positions like quarterback, tight end, kicker or defense, where owners oftentimes don't have other options available on the bench. Jameis Winston owners could pick up Carson Palmer, Sam Bradford, Carson Wentz or another quarterback with a good matchup to start Week 1. In addition, Doug Martin won't start his suspension until Week 2 and is therefore not eligible to return until Week 5. It's our opinion that owners with these types of issues who play in leagues without waivers/free agency prior to Week 1 should be allowed to make one waiver move per issue to pick up a replacement quarterback, tight end, defense or kicker. This should not be used as a way to pick up a hot running back or receiver prospect, but instead to ensure fairness in what is a very out-of-the-blue situation.

Bucs name Nick Folk their kicker

Dirk Koetter beamed like a new father, ready to pass out cigars.

"Our new kicker is Nick Folk," Koetter said following the Bucs' joint workout with the Jaguars Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

The team recently cut former second round pick Roberto Aguayo. With a potential to be able to move the ball, Folk could certainly have some fantasy valuable

Jets sign Randy Bullock; Nick Folk to IR

Tuesday, November 10, 2015, 2:02pm - [Full Article]

The frisky New York Jets don't plan to battle Rex Ryan's Buffalo Bills without a kicker on Thursday night.

Gang Green signed former Texans leg Randy Bullock to replace Nick Folk, who bowed out of Sunday's win over the Jaguars with a right quadriceps strain. The Jets placed Folk in injured reserve in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact:

Bullock has been shaky in his career, including early this year with the Texans, although there's some fantasy potential as the Jets offense can move the ball.

K Nick Folk not expected to play Thursday

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Jets have a short week to prepare for Thursday night’s game against the Bills and it looks like they’ll have to spend some of their limited time finding a kicker to fill in for Nick Folk.

Folk was active for Sunday’s victory over the Jaguars, but was limited to holding for punter Ryan Quigley due to a quad injury suffered in pregame warmups. Folk said after the game that he felt a “little pop” while getting ready for the game and Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the diagnosis is a Grade 1 quad strain.

Fantasy Impact:

As a result of the injury, Folk isn’t expected to play in this week’s game. That likely means that the Jets will be hosting a meeting of the unemployed kicker caravan that was in high demand earlier this season thanks to a slew of misses around the league, the story said.
