Boswell had a dreadful season last year, making just 13-of-20 field-goal attempts. He scored just 82 points, which was a career low. Boswell had made at least 84 percent of his field goals each of his first three seasons before last year. Boswell is not guaranteed anything going forward. He will need to earn the starting job. Boswell has a really strong leg and has shown in past seasons he can be an accurate kicker in this league.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Boswell is a good buy-low candidate. Last year was really out of the norm for him. If he gets it right, he can be a top-10 fantasy kicker. Don't draft him that high but take a chance on him in the last round if you want to platoon kickers. He can get around 120 points if he wins the starting job.

Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell hit two field goals and both extra point attempts in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the 49ers. The 28-year-old hit from 46 and 26 yards in the first quarter and he is now a perfect five-for-five on the year. It's great to see the struggles from a season ago have left the kicker's head and he is back to being solid. It's unfortunate that the offense hasn't put him in a great position to get a lot of opportunities. The Steelers are back at home in Week 4 to host the Bengals on Monday. Boswell is historically better at Heinz Field so he can be fired up again as a serviceable fantasy kicker.
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell made two field goals as well as both extra point attempts in Sunday's 28-26 loss to Seattle. Boswell made field goals of 41 and 33 yards, respectively. He got more chances than in Week 1 against the Patriots but not as many as fantasy owners would have liked. The team's Week 3 road matchup with San Francisco doesn't bode well for Boswell who has statistically been better at home than on the road. It's better to look elsewhere for streaming options than the 28-year-old.
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell booted a 19-yard field goal to mark the only points in the team's Week 1 loss to New England. However, a return back home to face the Seahawks should do the Steelers some good, including Boswell. At home over his career, Boswell has made 88% of his field goals, compared to just 82% on the road. With a Vegas predicted total of 47 points, there should be no shortage of point opportunities for Boswell in Week 2.
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell made his only field goal attempt, a 19-yarder in the third quarter of Sunday's 33-3 loss to the Patriots. It was the most anemic the Steelers' offense has looked in some time, so Boswell wasn't able to get going. Things could be difficult in Week 2 as well, as Pittsburgh welcomes the Seahawks to Heinz Field. Fade Boswell until this offense gets things ironed out.
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell has had the cards stacked against him this preseason. After hitting just 13 of 20 field goals and only 43 of 48 extra point attempts in 2018, head coach Mike Tomlin was very vocal that he was going to test Boswell this preseason. However, the fifth-year kicker knows there's nothing wrong with a challenge. "It does bring out the best in everybody. Well see where it goes, he said. The team brought in rookie Steven Wright from UCF to challenge Boswell this preseason. However, the incumbent has answered all doubts, hitting both field goal attempts, including a 47 yarder, along with all three extra point attempts. If your fantasy league utilizes kickers, you can leave Boswell in the player pool on draft day, but if he proves he is capable of hitting the necessary kicks, he could be a solid streamer after the first few games.
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell hit two field goals of 33 and 47 yards along with an extra point in Friday's preseason win over the Buccaneers. After last year's disaster season, Boswell is going to be facing some pressure this preseason, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. The 28-year-old hit just 13 of 20 field goal attempts last season before ending the year on injured reserve. Boswell has to fend off Matthew Wright for the full time kicking duties, but the odds are in Boswell's favor because of his history with the team. He shouldn't be drafted to your fantasy team, but if he is able to regain his confidence, Pittsburgh's offense should make Boswell fantasy relevant by the end of the season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are delaying kicker Chris Boswell's $2 million roster bonus, which was due in mid-March, until after the final preseason game. The Steelers would have outright cut Boswell if he didn't agree to it. The 28-year-old had a rough year in 2018, going 13-for-20 (65 percent) on field-goal tries while also missing five of his 48 extra-point attempts in 15 games. Boswell was one of the league's best kickers the year prior, making 92.1 percent of his kicks while going a perfect 5-for-5 on kicks from 50-plus yards. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy kicker selection this year. Rookie Matthew Wright is Boswell's competition this summer.
