2018 Fantasy Outlook
Mediocre the previous two seasons, Lambo lost his job with the Chargers in September but redeemed himself with the Jaguars the final 10 weeks of the year. He averaged 1.9 FGs and 2.2 PATs per game in Jacksonville, then capped things off with a perfect run in the playoffs, including four field goals from at least 40 yards out. The Jaguars don't have a great offense, but their defense should help set up opportunities. Read Past Outlooks

Lambo announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Jaguars.
ANALYSIS
In a league where kicking has proved paramount of late, it was a priority for Jacksonville to lock down one of the NFL's more successful legs of the past couple seasons. Not only did Lambo recently set a franchise record for most consecutive field goals (24) in 2018, but he nailed a career-long 57-yarder and boosted his conversion rate on field-goal attempts to 85.7 percent over four seasons. He could be in the discussion for fantasy consideration in 2019 depending on how Jacksonville's offensive personnel looks when training camp rolls around.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Lambo's 46 PAT attempts ranked sixth, but he was just 22nd in accuracy (91.3 percent). He was also not that effective on field-goal tries, ranking 24th with the same rate as in 2015. His struggles mostly came from deep, as five of his six misses were from at least 40 yards, including all three tries from 50-plus. The latter number is the most surprising after he went four of five from that distance in 2015. The Chargers have plenty of offensive weapons and Philip Rivers at quarterback, but they probably won't give Lambo too many more scoring chances than last year. He just needs to be more accurate.
The Chargers' offense took a step back last season, and while the kicking game actually made up a higher percentage of their total points scored, it still ranked just 21st league-wide. Lambo's 32 field-goal attempts tied him with four other kickers for eighth most in the NFL, but his conversion rate was the second lowest of anyone in that group. He particularly struggled from 40-49 yards, missing five of his 16 attempts from that distance, and his four unsuccessful PATs gave him the third-worst accuracy in that category. The Chargers' offense will have to improve for Lambo's fantasy value to increase, as his accuracy is just not good enough to rely upon if it doesn't.
Lambo, an undrafted rookie out of Texas A&M, beat out Nick Novak in the Chargers' preseason kicking battle and will handle kicking duties for a team that should score plenty of points this season.
