2020 Fantasy Outlook
Koo's name makes him a fan favorite, and his excellent work in eight games last season made him especially popular in Atlanta. In addition to leading kickers in per-game fantasy scoring, Koo gained added notoriety with back-to-back successful onside kicks (plus another wiped out by a penalty) on Thanksgiving. The Falcons could bring in competition, but Koo will be favored to win the gig. Read Past Outlooks

May 12, 2020
Coach Dan Quinn said that the Falcons are hoping to add some competition for Koo at the kicker position, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
While in-person workouts remain inconceivable for the time being, Koo is still going to have to prove himself during the lead-up to the regular season. The 25-year-old is currently the only kicker on the depth chart, but Quinn has remained adamant throughout the offseason that he is seeking competition at the position. Though Koo knocked down an impressive 23 of 26 field goals during his debut campaign in Atlanta, Quinn is wary of anointing his starter prematurely. Giorgio Tavecchio entered 2019 as the lone kicker on the roster, and proceeded to make just four of nine preseason field-goal attempts before being cut.

Koo will have a chance to earn the starting job after incumbent Josh Lambo struggled mightily throughout the 2016 season. While the undrafted free agent may be known more for his trick shot videos than kicking acumen, his strong leg and reasonable accuracy could help topple the less-than-sturdy perch that Lambo currently sits a top.
