2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Buccaneers at least were smart enough to wait until Round 5 in their most recent attempt to draft a kicker. Gay won't have the same leash we saw with 2016 second-round pick Roberto Aguayo, but the rookie does figure to have an edge over veteran Cairo Santos in training camp. Fantasy relevance can't be ruled out after the Bucs finished third in the NFL with 416 yards per game last season. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $2.85 million contract with the Buccaneers in May of 2019.
Disastrous finish to season
KTampa Bay Buccaneers
January 1, 2020
Gay missed all three of his field-goal attempts (49, 44 and 34 yards) and made both of his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers 28-22 overtime loss to the Falcons on Sunday. He finished the 2019 season with a 77.1 percent success rate on field goals (27-for-35) and a 43-for-48 tally on extra points.
ANALYSIS
Gay's final numbers were sullied by his clunker of a regular-season finale, but the rookie was otherwise very impressive during his first pro season. Gay's misfires were spread evenly across distance, as he missed two attempts from 30 to 39 yards, another three from 40 to 49 yards, and three more from 50 yards and beyond. The 2019 fifth-round pick will look to sharpen his technique over the offseason, but barring a complete training camp/preseason meltdown next summer, he should be the Buccaneers' placekicker again in 2020.
