News: Tucker made 33 of his 40 field-goal attempts (82.5 percent) and all 29 of his extra-point tries during the 2015 season.
Impact: Six of his misses came from 50-plus yards, with the other coming from 40-49. Tucker can become an unrestricted free agent in March, and he has a very strong case to become the highest-paid kicker in NFL history. However, the Ravens may opt to use the franchise tag, which would make Tucker a very nice bargain, at least for 2016. The most likely scenario features the Ravens using the franchise tag, then using it as leverage to negotiate a long-term contract. Tucker has proven to be a top-notch fantasy kicker, even when the Baltimore offense is mediocre.

News: Tucker made two of his three field-goal attempts and kicked one extra point in Sunday's 15-13 loss to the Dolphins.
Impact: Tucker has converted a career-worst 78.8 percent of his field-goal attempts this season, but six of his seven misses have come from beyond 50 yards. He's still one of the better options at his position, as Baltimore's willingness to let him try long kicks allows for the kind of volume that's typically reserved for kickers attached to potent offenses. However, the Ravens may find even field-goal attempts tough to come by in a Week 14 matchup with the Seahawks.
