Blair Walsh inks deal with Seattle

The Seattle Seahawks have signed kicker Blair Walsh on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Walsh, who was cut by the Vikings in Week 10 of the 2016 regular season, signed with the Seahawks Thursday. The veteran kicker was likely brought into Seattle because Steven Hauschka is an impending free agent. In nine games, Walsh was successful on 12-of-16 field goal attempts and 15-of-19 extra point attempts last season.

Blair Walsh released by Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings released K Blair Walsh on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Walsh missed four field goals and four extra points in 2016, leading to his release. Randy Bullock and Kai Forbath are kickers in the running for the vacant job on the Vikings.

Blair Walsh's job in danger after Sunday's miscues

Blair Walsh missed one of his two extra point attempts against the Lions and had one of his two field goal attempt blocked, making the other from 33 yards out.

Fantasy Impact

After an up-and-down start to the season, Walsh's job could be in jeopardy as the Vikings worked out other kickers on Monday afternoon. He seems to be suffering from an extended case of the yips ever since last post-season's crushing field-goal miss against Seattle. Whether or not Minnesota adds another kicker or replaces Walsh altogether, Walsh isn't a reliable fantasy asset.

Blair Walsh solid in limited opportunities

Blair Walsh connected on his only point after attempt and a 30-yard field goal against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Given the low-volume nature of Minnesota's offense, Walsh isn't a worthwhile fantasy kicker. Owners in deeper leagues might look to him as a bye week fill-in considering he has been reasonably reliable of late, although Walsh does come with a relatively low floor.

Blair Walsh good on two kicking opportunities

Blair Walsh connected on his only field goal attempt of the afternoon on Sunday, a 48-yarder, and also made his only point after attempt.

Fantasy Impact

After seeming to suffer from the yips since last year's playoff loss, Walsh has righted the ship the last two weeks, not missing a field goal or extra point attempt since Week 4 against the Giants. He could be a worthwhile kicker as a bye week fill-in in the event your league's waiver wire is, inexplicably, picked free of options of the position.
