2020 Fantasy Outlook
In 15 games for the Jets last season, Ficken made 19 of his 27 field-goal attempts. The 27-year-old will look to retain the team's kicking job after defeating Brett Maher in a camp competition. If Ficken holds on to the job, his fantasy appeal will be largely tied to the development of franchise QB Sam Darnold, and in turn, the Jets offense as a whole. Read Past Outlooks

September 27, 2020
Ficken converted a PAT and didn't attempt a field goal in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Colts.
ANALYSIS
New York's offense actually looked alright early on, but it was all Colts after Sam Darnold was intercepted on 1st-and-goal down 17-7 in the second quarter. The Jets are averaging just 12.3 points per game heading into a Week 4 home game against the Broncos, so Ficken's opportunities have been limited.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Mason Crosby has been the kicker in Green Bay since 2008, but he struggled a bit the last two years - mightily in a Week 5 loss a year ago - and the Packers decided to give him some competition. Enter Ficken, who appeared in two games each of the last two seasons for the Rams. Ficken has made just half of his six attempts in NFL games, so he's not the strongest of competitors, and will really need to perform during training camp to have a realistic shot of supplanting Crosby.
Ficken re-signed with the Rams this spring, but he's no threat to incumbent starter Greg Zuerlein, who tied for the 10th-most single-season points in NFL history last season. In fact, it's not certain Ficken would be back with the team if Zuerlein wasn't recovering from December back surgery. There's only value here if Greg the Leg suffers some kind of setback.
