The new deal keeps Elliott with the Eagles through the 2024 season. He has been one of the top kickers in the league this season, making all 14 field goal attempts this season, with one from 50-plus yards and three others from at least 40 yards. He has also missed just two extra points. Elliott is our No. 3 ranked kicker this week as the Eagles head to Miami to take on the Dolphins.

Eagles K Jake Elliott (illness) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice.
Either way, the Eagles won’t change their plans for Christmas night.
That’s the word straight from Eagles coach Doug Pederson, who was asked by reporters if there’s a dual plan for whether the Vikings lose or the Vikings win. And it was literally the word. As in one word.
“No,” Pederson said.
"I think it's important that they continue to play," Pederson said. "If we're in that position, if we're fortunate to be in that position to rest, I'll make that decision at that time. I think it's important that we continue to play."
This is good news for fantasy owners. Even if the Eagles were to clinch home field advantage Saturday, it appears safe to start your Eagles on Monday night. As always, check our latest rankings updates before lineup lock for your players.
