Memories of Zuerlein's outstanding 2017 season with the Rams keep him on the forefront of fantasy managers' minds, but the fact is that he hasn't been nearly the same kicker since. He missed seven field-goal attempts and three extra-point attempts last year, but was a solid fantasy starter simply because of his volume. He led the league in field-goal attempts with 41, and was accurate within 50 yards, missing just a single kick. But he simply couldn't hit from long range, going just 3-for-9 from 50-plus yards. With Dak Prescott back, the Dallas offense should put up plenty of points, which should again provide Zuerlein with a ton of opportunities. If he can rediscover his accuracy from long distance, he'll likely be a stud option, but even if not, he's a fantasy starter.
