Nick Folk struggled against the Bengals in Week 16, going 0-for-2 on extra points. He did not attempt a field goal.
Fantasy Impact: The windy conditions in New England made it tricky for kickers. Cincinnati’s Evan McPherson went 1-for-2 on field goals and 1-for-2 on extra points. (He missed a second extra point, but the miss was nullified due to a New England penalty.) Ultimately, there is clear evidence that Folk struggled due to weather rather than a lack of talent. Assuming the weather improves, he will return to being a top-five option against the Bills in Week 17.
