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.

Busier in Darnold's return
KNew York Jets
October 14, 2019
Ficken made his lone field-goal attempt from 38 yards out and converted all three of his PAT attempts in Sunday's 24-22 win over Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Ficken was much busier in quarterback Sam Darnold's return from mononucleosis, and that should remain the case moving forward, as Darnold guided the offense well and topped 300 passing yards. While Ficken's long-term outlook for the season is heading in the right direction, he could struggle in Week 7 against the stingy Patriots.

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.
