Tucker has signed his $2.356 million restricted free-agent tender with the Ravens, the Carroll County Times reports.

Tucker made 29-of-34 field goal attempts last season, en route to recording 129 points for the Ravens, a mark topped by nine NFL kickers in 2014. That said, Tucker's kicking accuracy (89.81 percent over his first three seasons) could well land him a long-term contract with Baltimore at some point.

Tucker went without a field goal attempt for the first time this season Sunday against the Titans, but made all three of his extra-point attempts.

Tucker remains among the top three kickers in total points heading in to Week 11. However, he will go on a bye while many of the other kickers have already done so. While he will likely drop a spot or two this weekend, the third-year kicker remains a strong fantasy kicker after the bye.

Tucker made both of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Falcons.

Tucker has struggled a bit more this season, already missing as many field goals through seven games this season (three) as he did in each of the last two. Having said that, he's still tied for second in field goals made, and all of his misses has come from 50+ yards out. Tucker and the Ravens head to Cincinnati this week to face a defense that has allowed 27, 37 and 43 in the last three games.

Tucker hit both of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Colts.

Tucker also hit his longest on the season from 52 yards out. He is now 11-for-13 on field goals this season along with 11 extra points to total 44 points on the season. He should continue to be one of the top options among kickers as the season progresses.

Tucker made all four of his field goal attempts Thursday against the Steelers, en route to a 14-point effort in the contest.

Tucker, who bounced back after a four-point output in Week 1, remains a solid fantasy option as the season progresses, on the heels of a 2013 campaign in which he racked up 140 points while working behind the Baltimore offense.

Tucker made all three of his field-goal attempts and both of extra points in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins.

While not attached to an elite offense, Tucker is quite clearly one of the top kickers in the league, both consistent on short field goals and capable of hitting from 60-plus yards. He had an odd year in 2013, tying for the league lead in field goals (38) and field-goal attempts (41), while tying for 29th in extra points (26). With the Baltimore offense seemingly improved from last season, Tucker should trade a few of those field goals for some added extra points.

The Ravens are interested in signing contract-year PK Justin Tucker to a long-term extension.

Tucker, 24, will be a restricted free agent in 2015. He's only owed $570,000 this season, so Baltimore would be savvy to let him turn in another year before handing him top-flight kicker money. Tucker holds Ravens franchise records in both single-season field goal conversions (38) and points scored (140).

Justin Tucker now holds the Ravens' franchise records for both field goals made in a season (38) and points scored (140).

Matt Stover previously held the records. Despite a Week 16 dud that buried fantasy owners in Super Bowls, Tucker emerged as a weekly top-five kicking option thanks to his impressive leg and the Ravens' red-zone woes. Only Stephen Gostkowski and Matt Prater scored more fantasy points than Tucker, who is now 68-of-74 (91.9 percent) on field goals in his career.

Justin Tucker's streak of 33 straight field goal makes was snapped in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

Tucker buried owners in fantasy's Super Bowl week by shanking a 37-yarder and finishing with one point. "Just to put it simply, I missed the ball," he said. This comes on the heels of a Week 15 performance that saw Tucker go 6-of-6, including makes from 49, 53 and 61 yards out. Kicking remains the most unpredictable and random position in fantasy football.

Justin Tucker's 61-yard field goal on Monday night was the third-longest go-ahead field goal in the final minute of the fourth quarter in NFL history.

Tucker's remarkable six field goals (including two from 50+) still has the NFL and fantasy world buzzing. Even Tucker himself is aware of the impact he had on millions of owners. "I'm glad I could come through, of course, for my reality team as well as for my fantasy owners," he said afterward. "Thank you for picking me up, it means a lot to me. And hopefully I can continue to contribute to the successes of your respective teams." Now riding 33 straight makes, Tucker will be a major factor in the fantasy finals as well.
