2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

March 13, 2019
Myers agreed in principle with the Seahawks on Wednesday on a four-year deal worth around $15-to-16 million, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The Seahawks have swooped in to sign a kicker in Myers who earned a Pro Bowl nod for his work with the Jets last season. The Marist product drilled 30 of 36 field-goal attempts and connected on 30 of 33 point-after attempts across 16 games. It's unclear how much guaranteed money Myers' deal contains, but the reported financial commitment would make him a top-10 kicker in terms of average annual salary. He's slated to replace incumbent Sebastian Janikowski (thigh), who is a free agent.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
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.
