What to do with Chris Boswell on Thursday Night Football

Chris Boswell is a steady fantasy producer with just one miss. Will he continue his solid performance against the Browns on TNF?

Chris Boswell had the yips for most of last year, as he hit just 65 percent of his field goal attempts. Thankfully for him and the Steelers, those numbers have turned back around dramatically. Through nine games, he’s hit 100 percent of his kicks under 50 yards and all of his PATs. His only miss was from 54-yards out at Heinz Field.

Boswell has also had 19 attempts through nine games, which is one off the 20 he attempted last season. Those 19 attempts rank 20th in the league, so he has needed that strong efficiency to stay in the Top-10 in fantasy.

Boswell faces a Browns team that has allowed the ninth-most field goal attempts and the eleventh-most PAT attempts. At this point, the weather forecast looks to be light winds and a temperature of around 34 degrees. This game could end up being a field goal battle, and Boswell has performed well enough to keep rolling this week
