Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 10
With the Patriots steamrolling the Browns in this one, Folk was very busy in knocking down 6 XPs. But their efficiency led to him attempting just 1 FG, and he connected on the 38-yard kick to give him a solid 9 points on the day.

He’ll likely continue to be a strong weekly fantasy option, though there will likely be volatility from week to week. On the season, he’s reached double-digit scoring 5 times, but in half of his last 6 games, he’s been held under 7 points. And even though it may not be an issue, it should be noted that he’ll have home games in Weeks 16 and 17, and the winter weather in New England always has the potential to be nasty.
Week 9
This game was very slow paced, especially with the Patriots playing with a lead throughout. They also were very conservative on offense, running the ball well more than they passed it. As a result, there weren’t many scoring opportunities, and the Pats scored TDs on 2 of 4 trips to the red zone. Folk could’ve ended up with a solid fantasy day, but he missed 1 of his 2 FG attempts.

With the Patriots having success moving the ball consistently, Folk should continue to be a strong fantasy option. It also helps that the offense often struggles to finish drives, so in addition to a fair number of XPs, he also gets consistent chances for FG attempts. As a result, he has 5 games in which he’s scored double digits while doing so 3 times in his previous 5 games. The only potential concern going forward is that in Weeks 16 and 17, he has home games, and we never know what type of weather we’ll see in Foxboro.
Week 7
Folk was very busy in a blowout win, as he converted 6 XPs, though he was wide right on a 7th attempt. In addition, he nailed a 39-yd FG early in the 2nd quarter before drilling a 50-yard FG in the middle of the 3rd quarter. Overall, the 12-point performance was an excellent output for Folk.

Although he had a 3-point performance against Dallas in Week 6, which was his worst total of the year, he should continue to be a strong fantasy option. He’s now posted at least 10 points in more than half of his games, and he’s averaging 9 points per game, making him one of the better options in the league. After a Week 14 bye, he’ll potentially have 2 games with weather concerns at home in Weeks 16 and 17 before a Week 18 trip to Miami.

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.
