Nick Folk Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

ESPN's Field Yates reports that the Patriots are expected to go with K Quinn Nordin to start the season, which means he'll get the job ahead of Nick Folk. The veteran didn't see any preseason action until the finale because of what he called "a little bit of soreness," according to CBS Boston's Michael Hurley. Folk logged just 1 preseason FG attempt vs. 6-of-8 kicking for Nordin.

The Patriots re-signed K Nick Folk. He drilled 93% of his FG tries last year but finished just 18th among Ks in fantasy points because New England's offense was so bad. The unit at least looks better on paper heading into 2021 after the additions of Nelson Agholor, Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry.

Patriots K Nick Folk (back) is active for tonight's game against the Jets. He's fine to get into fantasy lineups if you were waiting on him.

Patriots K Nick Folk was added to the injury report on Saturday with a back. He didn't practice and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets. Look elsewhere for your fantasy kicker this week.

The forecast for today's Patriots-Bills game calls for a chance of rain and 20 mph sustained winds with gusts over 30. That certainly puts a damper on the passing games. New England figured to go run-heavy anyway, so the bigger impact is on Josh Allen and Co. We'd also avoid both kickers in this game.

The Patriots activated K Nick Folk from the practice squad. He'll handle kicking duties at least for Sunday's opener vs. Miami. (Rookie K Justin Rohrwasser is on the practice squad.) Folk is a middling Week 1 fantasy option.

The Patriots have waived K Justin Rohrwasser and released K Nick Folk. That leaves the team with no kicker for the moment. We'll watch for tryouts over the coming week. For now, though, don't draft a Patriots kicker.

The Patriots are expected to sign K Nick Folk, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Folk and rookie Justin Rohrwasser will compete for the starting job. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts until we get a winner.

The Patriots have re-signed K Nick Folk. He missed last week's game after undergoing an appendectomy but is ready to kick again. Folk isn't a great fantasy option in a struggling New England offense.

6:11pm EST 11/28/19

Patriots K Nick Folk is out for Sunday night's game against the Texans after undergoing an appendectomy. New England has signed Kai Forbath to kick vs. Houston. He's a decent option if you need to replace Folk in your fantasy lineup.

Update: Folk has been released

8:10pm EDT 10/29/19

The Patriots have signed K Nick Folk to replace K Mike Nugent. Folk has been out of the NFL since 2017 but kicked for the AAF's Arizona Hotshots earlier this year. He sports a career 80.3% FG conversion rate across 11 NFL seasons. Folk could come into fantasy value kicking for a strong Patriots offense.

The Bucs have signed K Patrick Murray. He'll replace K Nick Folk, who missed 5 FGs and 1 XP over the past 2 weeks. Murray spent 2014 in Tampa Bay, connecting on 20 of 24 FG attempts (83.3%). He'll be a spot-start option in plus matchups.

The Bucs have released K Robert Aguayo -- just a little more than a year after spending a 2nd-round pick on him. Aguayo connected on just 71% of his FG attempts and missed a pair of XPs as a rookie. Then he missed a FG and an XP in Friday's preseason opener. Nick Folk is now in line to handle kicking duties in Tampa this season.

10:07am EDT 3/18/17

The Bucs have signed K Nick Folk. He'll compete for the starting job with K Roberto Aguayo, who's coming off a disappointing rookie campaign that saw him convert just 71% of his FGs. Folk has bested that mark in 7 straight seasons.

The Jets have placed K Nick Folk on IR with the groin injury he suffered in pregame warmups last week.  He'll be replaced by K Randy Bullock, who was cut by the Texans in September.  Bullock missed 2 XPs in Houston's first 3 games and has connected on just 80.3% of his career FG attempts.  You can do better for your fantasy squad.

5:35pm EST 11/9/15

Jets K Nick Folk (groin) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, according to HC Todd Bowles.  He will likely end up on IR and isn't worth rostering in any fantasy leagues.  The Jets will add a kicker within the next 48 hours.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports that Jets K Nick Folk suffered a Grade 1 quad strain before Sunday's win over the Jaguars. The injury is expected to keep him out of Thursday night's meeting with the Bills. We'll see beyond that, but it doesn't make much sense to keep a kicker with a leg-muscle injury on your fantasy roster (in nearly all cases). The fact that the Jets still let him hold for kicks against Jacksonville tells us they're not too worried.

Update: reports that Jets K Nick Folk will miss at least 4 weeks. The team tried out 4 free-agent kickers Monday.

Jets K Nick Folk is active for Sunday's game but won't kick because of a quad injury, according to insider Manish Mehta.  Folk wasn't listed on the Week 9 injury report, so the injury must have occurred in pregame warmups.  He's available to hold for P Ryan Quigley, who will handle kicking duties.

10:34am EST 12/7/14

Jets K Nick Folk (hip) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He’s not a fantasy option kicking for an anemic offense.

Jets K Nick Folk (hip) is probable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. The hip isn’t an issue, but New York’s anemic offense certainly is. Folk isn’t a fantasy option.
