Here are the five players who got the non-exclusive franchise tag, and the amount of the tender offer for each:
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul ($14,813,000)
Chiefs OLB Justin Houston ($13,195,000)
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant ($12,823,000)
Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas ($12,823,000)
Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski ($4,126,000)
This may not make either Bryant or Thomas happy, but it ensures that they aren't going anywhere for at least one more season. Both players figure to be ranked in the top 5 at their position in 2015 fantasy drafts.
NE K Stephen Gostkowski - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook
Well, Stephen Gostkowski is a kicker. So there's that. Gostkowski ranks as 4for4's third overall kicker, and he's been on of the top two fantasy kickers in three of the past five seasons, while he hasn't finished a season outside the top 12 kickers since 2010.
Well, Stephen Gostkowski is a kicker. So there's that. He converted 84.4% of his field goals in 2018, a noticeable dip from his 92.5% converted in 2017. He also plays 15 of his 16 games in outdoor stadiums, with his only opportunity in a dome coming in week 12 in Houston.
2019 Bottom Line
While Gostkowski has established himself as one of the most consistent performers at the position, he's still not worth a draft selection before the final two rounds in redraft fantasy leagues. He does retain some value in that his ADP has him ranked as the K4, a notch lower than our projections have him as the K3, so he would be a worthy target if he lasts until the penultimate round of your draft.
