Blair Walsh solid against former team

Blair Walsh made two field goals (52, 52) on three attempts and made both extra point attempts in Seattle's 20-13 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Walsh very nearly made a third field goal from 53 yards out, but it was just short and bounced off the crossbar. He is now 4-for-5 on field goals and 8-for-8 on extra points in two preseason games. He now has 20 points and is second only to Justin Tucker (22) in preseason scoring. Walsh will look to stay on track when the Seahawks host the Chiefs on Friday.

Blair Walsh perfect on eight tries

Blair Walsh made all six extra point attempts and both field goal attempts (42, 28) in Seattle's 48-17 win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

With Steven Hauschka moving on to Buffalo, the Seahawks appear set to hand the kicking job to Walsh. Walsh's inconsistency cost him his job in Minnesota, but the former All-Pro looked like his old self for at least one more game. He'll be worth a roster spot in fantasy if he keeps this up. He'll have his chance on Friday when the Seahawks host his former team.

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.
