Analysis

Butker’s highlight this week was a punt, but he managed to remain highly ranked as a kicker as well despite missing a field goal (and an extra point, but the rankings don’t look at extra points). But he’s a bit out of Pro Bowl range at the moment, as a number of other AFC kickers have jumped him.

Speaking of other AFC kickers, Boswell suddenly has some competition in the form of his division rival McPherson, who actually managed to jump him in field goal percentage above expected. Ironically this isn’t because Boswell has been any worse, but the Steelers have had him kicking easier field goals, so his expected percentage has gotten higher (and thus his gap over that smaller). A flaw in the rankings, yes, but he’s still lapping the field in win probability added.
