2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mason Crosby has been the kicker in Green Bay since 2008, but he struggled a bit the last two years - mightily in a Week 5 loss a year ago - and the Packers decided to give him some competition. Enter Ficken, who appeared in two games each of the last two seasons for the Rams. Ficken has made just half of his six attempts in NFL games, so he's not the strongest of competitors, and will really need to perform during training camp to have a realistic shot of supplanting Crosby.

$Signed a contract with the Seahawks in January of 2019. Waived by the Seahawks in April of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Packers in April of 2019.

The Packers claimed Ficken off waivers Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Ficken had a three-month audition with the Seahawks, but the team opted to go with Jason Myers to begin their offseason program. Upon his arrival in Green Bay, Ficken will compete with long-time kicker Mason Crosby, who missed 11 total field-goal tries the last two seasons. Meanwhile, Ficken has just four appearances on his resume with the Rams, making three of six field-goal attempts and 14 of 15 point-after tries.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Ficken re-signed with the Rams this spring, but he's no threat to incumbent starter Greg Zuerlein, who tied for the 10th-most single-season points in NFL history last season. In fact, it's not certain Ficken would be back with the team if Zuerlein wasn't recovering from December back surgery. There's only value here if Greg the Leg suffers some kind of setback.
