2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bullock's two seasons in Cincinnati have yielded just 43 field-goal tries in 31 games, as the Bengals offense has been surprisingly effective in the red zone for a unit that's struggled overall. An improved offensive line and a healthy Andy Dalton create more hope for 2019, but Bullock himself doesn't inspire much confidence with only eight makes on 17 attempts from 50-plus yards in 79 career games.

Bullock is still on track to be the Bengals' kicker come Week 1, but the team has brought in some competition during minicamp and OTAs, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Bullock is entering his tenth season and fourth in Cincinnati. He converted 19 of 23 field-goal attempts last season to go along with 39 of 41 extra points. Tristan Vizcaino was brought in to compete with him but has failed to make much of an impression. Barring a significant change in course, the veteran looks on track to retain his job.

2012
Bullock spent time with five teams from 2015 to 2016, eventually catching on as the Bengals' kicker last season. He's essentially just a replacement-level option, with a career conversion rate of 82.8 percent and only six field goals (on 12 tries) from 50 yards and out. The Bengals likely will field a mediocre offense once again, and Bullock needs to beat out Jonathan Brown in a camp battle.
Bullock bounced around quite a bit in 2016, spending time with the Steelers, Giants, and Bengals. He finished the season a combined 9-for-10 on extra points and 8-for-9 on field goals. He'll have to earn the job in camp but he's the clear favorite to be the Bengals' kicker in 2017. For his career, Bullock has made 81.4 percent of his field goal attempts, though he made 85.7 percent of his attempts in 16 games with Houston in 2015. If he can bounce back to his old form, he could be a quality fantasy option.
Bullock finished with the same number of field-goal attempts last year as his 2013 rookie season, but his accuracy improved by more than 10 percentage points, helping him finish ninth in scoring. His best improvement was from long range as he hit 4-of-5 from 50-plus yards after going 1-of-5 from that distance the previous season. The biggest obstacle for Bullock this season will be the Texans' offense, as the quarterback situation is still cloudy and long-time wideout Andre Johnson is now with the Colts. As it turned out, Bullokck's biggest obstacle was himself. He missed four kicks in the first three weeks and was released by Houston.
Expectations were high for Bullock after Shayne Graham racked up 138 points with the Texans a season earlier, but he was one of several underachievers in the team’s dismal 2-14 campaign. Missed field goals came in bunches for Bullock, who went 1-for-5 in the season’s first two weeks and 2-for-6 in Weeks 9 and 10. That sort of inconsistency likely won’t be as easily forgiven by new coach Bill O’Brien, perhaps putting Bullock’s job on notice if he struggles in the early going this season. Bullock could become a middle-tier fantasy option if he can carry over the notable improvement he showed late last season, though the team’s glaring void at quarterback might hurt his chances of racking up PATs.
Bullock was the favorite to handle placekicking duties as a rookie for the Texans in 2012 before a torn groin muscle in preseason ended his season prematurely. As a result, Shayne Graham assumed the job and benefited from the bevy of scoring opportunities – 38 field-goal attempts and 45 PATs. Despite Graham's quality production, the Texans remained loyal to Bullock, who should be fully healthy and ready to lock down the job in training camp. Bullock displayed accuracy and long-distance skills during a successful career at Texas A&M, and he'll get to showcase those attributes in one of the more lucrative kicking gigs in the NFL. Thanks to a great power-rushing attack, capable passing game and indoor stadium, Texans kickers have accumulated at least 124 points each of the last three seasons.
Bullock was selected in the fifth round of April’s draft after Houston let Neil Rackers walk. At Texas A&M last year, Bullock nailed 29-of-33 field goals with a long of 52 yards. The Texans’ multi-dimensional offense makes Bullock an intriguing fantasy commodity. Despite injuries to Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson, Rackers totaled 135 points, sixth in the league. Rackers had only nine PAT attempts the last six weeks with Schaub injured, and his field-goal attempts increased only slightly from 2.2 a game through the first 10 games to 2.6 per game. With Schaub and Johnson healthy and improved red-zone touchdown efficiency (46.7 percent, 25th), Bullock likely will see fewer than Rackers’ 38 field-goal attempts, but that should be offset somewhat by increased PATs – Rackers ranked 11th with 40. That’s assuming, of course, the Lou Groza Award winner lives up to his billing.
