K Chandler Catanzaro has inked a deal with the Jets. He spent 2017 with New York, connecting on 83.3% of his FG attempts. Catanzaro struggled with the Bucs last year, missing 4 FGs and 4 XPs in 9 games before getting cut. He bounced back with the Panthers, though, converting all 5 of his FG attempts and 7 of 8 XPs. Catanzaro could be a fantasy spot-start option in 2019 with the Jets offense capable of taking a step forward.

The Buccaneers have released K Chandler Catanzaro. The veteran missed FG attempts from 30 and 48 yards out in Sunday's loss to Washington. For the season, he's 11-of-15 on FG tries and has missed 4 extra-point attempts. We'll see who the Bucs tap to replace him.

Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times considers Chandler Catanzaro a lock to win the Bucs’ kicker job. Auman points out that the 27-year-old was handed $3.75 million guaranteed in March. Coming off a solid year with the Jets — converting 83.3% of his kicks — Catanzaro is a potential in-season streamer.

The Jets have chosen Chandler Catanzaro as their kicker over Ross Martin. ESPN's Rich Cimini called it a surprise move after Catanzaro "wasn't even close" to matching Martin's FG kicking on the practice field. The competition was closer in preseason game action, but Cimini says the real difference was that Jets coaches were concerned about Martin's distance and hang time on kickoffs. This all makes Catanzaro seem less than a safe bet to stick around all season. Of course, the kicker for the offensively challenged Jets isn't likely to be attractive in fantasy anyway.
