Blair Walsh leads Seahawks in scoring against Rams

Blair Walsh finished 3-for-3 on field goals (48, 49, 35) and 1-for-1 on extra points in Seattle's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Seattle's offense struggled overall, but Walsh was perfect when called upon. He made his first field goal as time expired in the first half to tie the game at 10. He gave the Seahawks the lead midway through the third quarter, then forced the Rams to drive for a touchdown with no timeouts when he put Seattle up 16-10 with 1:09 to play. He is now 9-for-10 on both field goals and extra points and is tied for 16th in the NFL in scoring with 36 points. The Seahawks are off in Week 6, then face the Giants on the road in Week 7.

Blair Walsh nearly perfect despite accuracy issues

Blair Walsh finished 1-for-2 on field goals and 5-for-5 on extra points in Seattle's 46-18 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Walsh connected from 44 yards in the first quarter and missed from 37 yards on the last play of the first half. The miss came after the NBC broadcast showed Walsh struggling mightily with accuracy in warmups. However, it was his first missed field goal of the season. Walsh also made a sixth extra point, but the Seahawks elected to take the point off the board and go for two after an Indianapolis penalty. The Seahawks will travel to Los Angeles to face the Rams in Week 5.

Blair Walsh connects on three extra points

Blair Walsh was 3-for-3 on extra points and did not attempt a field goal in Seattle's 33-27 loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Walsh didn't have much to do in this one, but he did his job when called upon. He should be more active in Week 4 when the Seahawks host the 30th ranked Colts defense on Sunday night.

Blair Walsh perfect on field goals, misses extra point

Blair Walsh made both field goal attempts (25, 27) and missed an extra point in Seattle's 12-9 win over San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact

Walsh is now 5-for-5 on field goals this season and 0-for-1 on extra points. The miss could have been costly as it would have put the Seahawks up by four with just over seven minutes remaining. Thankfully for Walsh, Seattle's defense bailed him out. Walsh is one of nine kickers to make five or more field goals and one of four kickers (Robbie Gould, Randy Bullock, Aldrick Rosas) to not make an extra point. Of the four, he is the only one who has attempted an extra point this season. However, Walsh will have a consistently safe floor as long as the Seahawks continue to sputter in the red zone. The Seahawks will travel to Tennessee on Sunday.

Blair Walsh scores all of Seattle's points in loss

Blair Walsh made all three field goal attempts (33, 21, 41) in Seattle's 17-9 loss to Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Everything went smoothly for Walsh, who was perfect when called upon. Seattle's red zone ineptitude led to more field goal attempts, but their overall ineptitude on offense meant he didn't get any extra point attempts. After a strong preseason, Walsh appears to have his accuracy back. He's worth starting in most leagues. The Seahawks will try to give him more opportunities when they host the 49ers on Sunday.
