Jets | Head coach still confident in Nick Folk

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 22:52:31 -0700

New York Jets PK Nick Folk still has the confidence of head coach Todd Bowles despite the kicker's shaky performance in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He missed an extra point in the second quarter, and had a 22-yard field goal blocked.

Fantasy Tip: Folk is a borderline fantasy option, and should be ignored until he gets back on track. It might be difficult in Week 2 at Buffalo, synonymous for its swirling winds.

Jets | Nick Folk will have competition

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 14:06:05 -0700

New York Jets PK Nick Folk will compete with PK Ross Martin for the kicker job during training camp, but the team would save around $2.2 million in salary cap space if Folk is released.

Fantasy Tip: Folk should be considered the leading candidate for the job, but owners should keep an eye on the situation during the preseason. He likely will not be a great fantasy option this season if he wins the job.

Jets | Nick Folk a cut candidate

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 12:46:25 -0800

New York Jets PK Nick Folk could be released this offseason with a cap number of $3.34 million.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets may be more than willing to give the kicking reins to Randy Bullock and save some money. Bullock isn't a top-tier fantasy kicker, but he can hold his own week-to-week.

Jets | Nick Folk out a while

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 13:24:14 -0800

New York Jets P Nick Folk (quadriceps) is expected to miss eight weeks as opposed to the four to six weeks that was originally thought.

Fantasy Tip: Randy Bullock will kick for Folk until he is healthy enough to return, which may not be before the regular season ends. Bullock is worth a pickup in seasonal leagues for those who own, or owned, Folk.

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 10:44:02 -0800

New York Jets PK Nick Folk (quadriceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 10, ending his season.

New York Jets PK Nick Folk (quadriceps) will not play Thursday, Nov. 12, as he is dealing with a four-to six-week quadriceps injury, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets worked out several kickers today, but have not officially signed anyone to replace Folk. Whoever signs will be worth a pickup for those who have Folk as their starting kicker.

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 11:12:20 -0800

Free-agent PK Billy Cundiff (Bills) will work out for the New York Jets in light of PK Nick Folk (quadriceps) likely being out this week.

Fantasy Tip: Cundiff would make for a nice one-week replacement, especially for those who own Folk. Folk can be dropped this week.
