Michael Badgley

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Badgley missed only five kicks in 18 games between 2018 and 2019, but he took a sharp downward turn in 2020 with an NFL-high nine missed FGs. Even with 19 of his 33 tries covering 40 or more yards, Badgley's 72.7 percent conversion rate was unacceptable by modern standards. He now faces summer competition from Tristan Vizcaino, with the winner standing to benefit if QB Justin Herbert has a big year. Read Past Outlooks

The Chargers are re-signing Badgley, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Badgley is coming off a disastrous season, having converted just 73 percent of his field-goal attempts (worst among all kickers who attempted 30 or more field goals in 2020), including just two of six tries from 50-plus yards out. The team also signed placekicker Tristan Vizcaino earlier this month, and more competition for Badgley could surface as the offseason progresses.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Badgley's emergence in 2018 appeared to solve the Chargers' infamous kicking woes, but the team's problems returned in 2019 when he missed the first two months of the season with a groin injury. Badgley came back in November and stabilized the situation, likely doing enough to lock down the job for this year. The offense is now the big concern, with Philip Rivers gone and the line still looking shaky.
Badgley ended the Chargers' kicking curse last year, but his fantasy output (7.9 ppg) was modest as the team ranked 10th in red-zone TD percentage (64.2). The Chargers finished 11th in yards and sixth in points but only 17th in FG attempts - partially a product of not trusting Caleb Sturgis, whom Badgley replaced for good after Week 9. Badgley might still be on a short leash, but the Chargers will score plenty of points.
