Browns re-sign Parkey | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Browns re-signed K Cody Parkey. He took over as the starter in Week 2 last year and went on to convert 19 of 22 FG attempts and 43 of 47 XPs. Parkey should be a decent fantasy option in 2021 on an improving Cleveland offense.

In the same day the Dolphins claimed K Cody Parkey off waivers, they then released K Andrew Franks. Franks connected on just 78.4% of his FG attempts over the past 2 years, including only 16 of 21 last season. Parkey brings an 84.6% career success rate. He's not getting hitched to a terrific offense. Miami ranked 17th in scoring and 24th in yards last year.

The Dolphins have claimed K Cody Parkey off waivers after Cleveland waived him Saturday. That could mean they're looking to replace K Andrew Franks. The situation is suddenly at least murky enough that you shouldn't pick Franks in fantasy football drafts today.

Update: The Dolphins released Franks on September 3.

The Browns placed K Patrick Murray on IR and signed K Cody Parkey. Given the question marks with Cleveland’s offense, it's best to avoid this situation in fantasy. Parkey, however, has hit 87.5% of his FG attempts in his young career.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Eagles will place K Cody Parkey on IR with his groin injury and sign Caleb Sturgis to replace him. The former Dolphin lost out to undrafted free agent Andrew Franks this summer after making less than 80% of his FGs each of the past 2 years. Combine that with a still-shaky Eagles offense, and you don't have the "must add" that we all might have expected for a Philly kicker as recently as a month ago.

Eagles K Cody Parkey aggravated a groin injury in Sunday's game against the Jets, according to Fox Sports' Alex Marvez.  Philly will work out potential replacements this week, including Nick Novak.  Parkey owners need to be looking elsewhere for a Week 4 kicker.
