Week 12 Outlook
The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with kicker Blair Walsh.
Walsh will compete with Giorgio Tavecchio for the starting kicking job. Whoever winds that battle will definitely be fantasy relevant.
Blair Walsh went 1-for-2 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points in Seattle's 26-24 loss to Arizona.
Obviously, the big news is Walsh missing the potential game-winning 48-yard field goal with 37 seconds to play. The kick was meaningless in that Seattle had already been eliminated from the playoffs after Atlanta's win over Carolina. However, another inopportune miss made Walsh 5-for-11 on field goals in the five games Seattle lost by six or less. Two of those losses (Arizona and Atlanta) included misses in the final minute. He missed three field goals against Washington and a 38-yarder against Jacksonville that would have helped on Seattle's final drive. He did not attempt a field goal in the six-point loss to Tennessee. Despite being automatic on extra points in 2017 (37-of-38) he may have kicked himself out of a job in 2018.
Blair Walsh went 3-for-3 on extra points in Seattle's 21-12 win over Dallas.
It was the second straight week that Walsh did not attempt a field goal. However, he has now made 34 consecutive extra points dating back to Week 3. Walsh would not be an ideal choice in Week 17 against Arizona due to Seattle's recent offensive struggles. He has also had trouble with high-pressure kicks, and there could be a few of those in this one with Seattle's playoff hopes on the line.
Blair Walsh went 1-for-1 on extra points in Seattle's 42-7 loss to the Rams.
Walsh was simply not needed due to the manhandling the Seahawks' offense suffered at the hands of Aaron Donald and the Rams. Other than an extra point in the third quarter, it was strictly kickoffs for him. Walsh's owners can only hope the Seahawks will be more functional in a Week 16 trip to Dallas.
Blair Walsh went 1-for-2 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points in Seattle's 30-24 loss to Jacksonville.
Walsh pushed a 38-yarder just before halftime that would have tied the game. He then scored Seattle's first points from 28 yards out with 8:33 to go in the third quarter. Walsh has still only missed one extra point this season and has made 30 in a row. The Seahawks will need Walsh to be on top of his game in Week 15 when they host the Rams in a game that could very well decide the NFC West.
