  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Faces competition from rookie

    Folk now faces competition for the Patriots' kicking job following the selection of Chad Ryland in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

    Folk, who turns 39 in November, is under contract with New England this coming season on the heels of a 2022 campaign in which he made 32 of his 37 field-goal attempts, while hitting 32 of his 35 extra-point tries in 17 games. As long as he remains on the team's roster, Folk will have a chance to compete for the team's kicking job, but given that the Patriots traded up to land Ryland, both Graff and Mike Reiss of consider the rookie the favorite to earn the assignment.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Records 128 points this season

    Folk made 32 of his 37 field-goal attempts this past season, while hitting 32 of his 35 extra-point tries in 17 games.

    In the process, Folk logged 128 points, which was 22 less than he scored in 2021 but still enough to keep the veteran kicker on the fantasy radar. The 38-year-old remains under contract with the Patriots for one more season, and as long as he can stay healthy, Folk should continue to maintain fantasy utility in 2023.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Nails only field goal in win

    Folk converted his only field-goal try while going 2-for-3 on extra-point attempts in Sunday's 23-21 victory over the Dolphins.

    After missing both of his extra-point attempts in the Patriots' Week 16 loss to the Bengals, Folk was able to nail a 49-yard field goal in the third quarter of Sunday's contest. The kicker did miss a PAT in the contest, and he has now gone 2-for-5 on extra points over the last two weeks after starting the season a perfect 28-for-28. On the campaign, the 38-year-old has converted 31 of 36 field-goal tries, including 4-for-5 from 50 or more yards.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Misses both kicks in loss

    Folk missed two point-after tries during Saturday's 22-18 loss to the Bengals.

    Folk came into the contest with 30 made field goals, most in the NFL. However, he didn't garner an attempt in Week 16 and missed both of his PATs en route to his worst statistical performance of the campaign. It's unclear if the veteran kicker suffered an injury during the contest, but his status should be monitored after an uncharacteristic performance.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Leads league in FGs made

    Folk made all three of his field-goal attempts and his only PAT attempt in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Raiders.

    Folk continued his strong season with successful kicks from 24, 47 and 54 yards, but his nice performance was overshadowed by New England's catastrophic final play, which allowed the Raiders to score a walk-off touchdown. The veteran kicker has made 30 of 35 field-goal attempts in 2022, leading the league in both categories.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Records four points Thursday

    Folk made one of of his two field-goal attempts in Thursday's 24-10 loss to the Bills en route to recording four points in the contest.

    Though 12 games, Folk has racked up 99 points, but of late the veteran kicker's fantasy prospects have been hindered by an inconsistent New England offense. Folk will have an opportunity to bounce back in Week 14 when the Patriots face the 4-8 Cardinals on the road.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Makes one field goal Sunday

    Folk made one of his three field-goal attempts in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Jets en route to recording four points in Week 11.

    Per Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site, wind was a factor Sunday, while Michael Palardy subbed in as the team's holder with Jake Bailey out. Folk will look to bounce back on the road Thursday night against the Vikings, who play at U.S. Bank Stadium, where weather won't be a factor in Week 12.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Makes four field goals Sunday

    Folk made all four of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 26-3 win over the Colts en route to recording 14 points in the contest.

    With 30 points over his last two games, Folk was hitting his stride from a fantasy perspective. However,the Patriots are on bye this week, so those who had been relying on the veteran kicker will need to find a substitute for him ahead of Week 10 action.
