Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker reached 200 career field goals after converting on all three of his tries in the team's Week 16 game Saturday, Dec. 23. He reached that number on 222 attempts (90.9 percent), becoming the first kicker in NFL history to have a success rate of higher than 90 percent with 200 or more field goals made.
Huddle Up: For anyone who needed more proof that Tucker is the top kicker in the game today, well, here you go. The 28-year-old is enjoying another fantastic season in 2017, having converted on 32-of-35 field goal attempts, and just continues to be as consistent as one can be at his position.

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker has converted 97-of-103 (94.2 percent) field-goal attempts for his career on the road, which is the best such mark in NFL history. He is also 12-of-12 when kicking indoors.
Huddle Up: There are a number of stats you can dig up that paint Tucker as one of the top kickers of his era. This is certainly one of them, and it's definitely something to feel good about considering he'll be kicking indoors this weekend's matchup opposite the Vikings. He's worth firing up in every format.

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker claims he could hit a field goal
of more than 84 yards in the ideal conditions. 'We think about
these things really specifically, if you send me out there you
have a reason for it -- because they think I can make a kick,'
Tucker said Thursday, Aug. 4, on NFL Network's Good Morning
Football. 'To me it doesn't matter where I just have to hit a good
ball. If conditions are prime -- like last season, we opened up in
Denver, the weather was warm and the field was nice, you're up in
altitude so the ball just carries and in pregame I hit the cross
bar from 85. So if the situation is just prime, maybe 84 and a
Huddle Up: Just wondering: Should that be worth eight points in leagues that
reward bonus points for made kicks longer than 40 yards?

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker agreed to a four-year deal with the Ravens Friday, July 15, worth $16.8 million, according to a source. The deal includes $10.8 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Despite the Ravens' offensive issues (25th in scoring) last season, Tucker finished as the league's fifth-ranked fantasy kicker and should be under strong consideration as a standard-size league fantasy starter again in drafts this summer.

Baltimore Ravens K Justin Tucker has vowed not to re-sign with the team after this season if the two sides cannot come to an agreement on a long-term deal before the Friday, July 15 deadline, according to his agent Rob Roche. The franchise tag for kickers this season is $4.5 million, which is what Tucker would be earning if he can't secure his desired long-term contract prior to Friday afternoon.
Huddle Up: Kickers giving ultimatiums? Tucker is one of the few good enough to issue one as the deadline nears.

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker likely wants to receive a better deal than the four-year, $17.2 million deal New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski signed last year. The Ravens have until July 15 to sign Tucker to a long-term deal or he will play under the one-year franchise tender of $4.572 million. In the opinion of CSNMidAtlantic.com's Clifton Brown, the Ravens want to sign Tucker to a new deal and Tucker wants to stay.
Huddle Up: Tucker certainly has a case, scoring at least 128 points in each of his four seasons and converting 75.3 percent of his career regular-season attempts from beyond 40 yards. Due to the Ravens' offensive struggles, though, last season he's fallen from serious PK1 consideration.

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker had the franchise tag placed on him Friday, Feb. 26.
Huddle Up: Tucker is still ranked as one of the league's and fantasy's elite kickers, but it is a tad worrisome that his field-goal accuracy and point totals have gone done each of the last three seasons.

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker could be an option for the franchise tag next offseason if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement on a long-term deal before the tag deadline.
Huddle Up: Tucker, who has finished in the league's top 10 in points scored and field goals made in all three of his seasons in Baltimore, is certainly as tag-worthy as any player at his position.

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome recently said the team is working on contract extensions for several players, and PK Justin Tucker is the likeliest to get a new deal before the season begins, according to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley. Hensley believes a long-term deal makes the most sense for both sides.
Huddle Up: It would well deserved as Tucker has been a top-10 fantasy PK in each of his two NFL seasons and has connected on 10 of 11 career FG attempts from beyond 50 yards.
