2022 Fantasy Outlook
Myers attempted just 23 field goals last season and 24 the year prior, with Seattle's offense declining overall but remaining efficient in the red zone. He could get more field-goal attempts this year, but PATs might be at a premium with either Geno Smith or Drew Lock expected to replace quarterback Russell Wilson. Myers doesn’t offer much from long range and probably won’t get a ton of opportunities in a limited offense. Read Past Outlooks

Struggles in 2021

January 14, 2022
Myers connected on 17 of 23 field-goal attempts (74 percent) and 44 of 47 extra-point tries (94 percent) over 17 games during the 2021 season.
ANALYSIS
Myers hit all 24 field-goal tries during the 2020 season, but he faced severe regression in 2021, making just six of 10 attempts from beyond 40 yards. His job isn't guaranteed for the 2022 season, as the Seahawks could save $4 million against the salary cap if they cut him. Over his three years in Seattle, he has connected on 64 of 75 field-goal attempts (85 percent) and 133 of 144 extra-point tries (92 percent).

2015
Myers was solid in 2019 and excellent in 2020, but his two seasons in Seattle haven't yielded a ton of three-point tries, as QB Russell Wilson has been efficient at scoring from distance and also effective in the red zone. The team context does give Myers a decent floor via PATs, and he's capable of hitting from distance when given the chance, converting 20 of 32 kicks from 50-plus yards through six seasons.
Myers parlayed his Pro Bowl 2018 season with the Jets into a four-year, $15.45 million contract with Seattle. He then missed five FGs in the regular season and two more in the playoffs, but the contract should protect him for at least one more year. While Myers is attached to an efficient offense, the slow pace of play combined with Russell Wilson's red-zone brilliance create a suboptimal context for FG volume.
Myers pulled off an impressive feat in 2018, tying for third in kicker fantasy scoring on a Jets team ranked 23rd in points and 29th in yards. His reward was a Pro Bowl appearance followed by a contract in Seattle, where the presence of Russell Wilson creates a path to a repeat performance. Granted, Myers struggled prior to last season, missing 15 field goals and 12 PATs in 38 games for Jacksonville in 2015-2017.
After playing just six games for the Jaguars in 2017, Myers was released when he missed two of three field goals Week 6, bringing his season mark to 73 percent with no makes over 50 yards. The Seahawks picked him up to be ready in case veteran Sebastian Janikowski can't return to his past self. However, if Janikowski can, Myers will hit the road.
Myers set career-highs in field-goal attempts and makes last year, though he struggled with his accuracy, finishing as one of nine kickers below 80 percent. That being said, five of his seven misses were from 50-plus yards, and he led the league with 12 attempts from that distance. The Jags' offense struggled as a whole, so even if Myers had made all of his 50-yarders, he still would have finished only 10th in scoring. The Jags appear ready to improve offensively this year, which could allow Myers to move up the scoring ranks, though he's unlikely to be a top option.
The Jaguars' offense improved significantly last season, which subsequently improved the kicking game, as 110 points from the position ranked 17th league-wide after finishing 32nd and 31st in the last two years, respectively, thanks to only 23 and 22 PAT attempts in those seasons. Myers' 86.7 percent field-goal accuracy ranked 14th, though he was the worst kicker in the league with the new extra point, hitting just 32 of 39. While hitting them all wouldn't have drastically improved his fantasy value, there's reason to believe he won't repeat the struggles, given that he hit 17-of-18 field goals from inside 40 yards last season. If the Jags' offense can continue to grow, Myers' fantasy production should follow.
Myers will be Jacksonville's placekicker after the team traded away Josh Scobee to the Steelers.
