Tucker and the Ravens have agreed to a four-year, $16.8 million contract extension that includes $10.8 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tucker took a hard stance by saying he wouldn't re-sign with Baltimore if no long-term deal was reached by Friday's deadline, and the Ravens responded by giving him the most money guaranteed to a kicker in NFL history. At 26 years old, Tucker has converted nearly 88 percent of his field goal attempts across four seasons and has never missed an extra point, emerging as one of the league's best kickers along the way.

Tucker officially received the franchise tag from the Ravens on Friday morning, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tucker will make $4.5 million next season after he and the Ravens could not make ends meet on a long-term deal. Tucker, who knocked through 33 field goals last season, is becoming one of the standout kickers in the league and has proven to be a valuable fantasy pickup.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Tucker will receive the franchise tag if a long-term contract isn't worked out by March 1,

EDGE Analysis

Newsome is just stating the obvious, as Baltimore doesn't have other strong candidates for the franchise tag, which only costs around $4.5 million for kickers. Given that he arguably has the NFL's best combination of leg strength and accuracy, Tucker will likely expect a contract that matches or surpasses Stephen Gostkowski's record-setting four-year, $17.2 million deal from last offseason. Tucker has proven to be a valuable fantasy commodity, despite mostly being attached to unspectacular offenses. He's very accurate and gets a ton of opportunities from 50+ yards.

Tucker made 33 of his 40 field-goal attempts (82.5 percent) and all 29 of his extra-point tries during the 2015 season.

EDGE Analysis

Six of his misses came from 50-plus yards, with the other coming from 40-49. Tucker can become an unrestricted free agent in March, and he has a very strong case to become the highest-paid kicker in NFL history. However, the Ravens may opt to use the franchise tag, which would make Tucker a very nice bargain, at least for 2016. The most likely scenario features the Ravens using the franchise tag, then using it as leverage to negotiate a long-term contract.

Tucker made two of his three field-goal attempts and kicked one extra point in Sunday's 15-13 loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Tucker has converted a career-worst 78.8 percent of his field-goal attempts this season, but six of his seven misses have come from beyond 50 yards. He's still one of the better options at his position, as Baltimore's willingness to let him try long kicks allows for the kind of volume that's typically reserved for kickers attached to potent offenses. However, the Ravens may find even field-goal attempts tough to come by in a Week 14 matchup with the Seahawks.

Tucker made two of his three field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Tucker probably has the longest leash of any kicker in the NFL, and he's still 11-for-14 on field-goal attempts this season, with two of the misses coming from beyond 50 yards and the other from 40-49. The Ravens may not be good enough to win games, but the offense has at least been competent enough for Tucker to remain a top-10 kicker. He does get a tough matchup this week, with the Ravens traveling to Arizona.

Tucker made one of his two field-goal attempts in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Tucker missed from 51 yards out, but he has still connected on 11 of his 13 attempts this season, with two field goals from beyond 50 yards. Most kickers would only be borderline options if attached to the same offense, but Tucker's so good that he should be able to finish in the top 12 at his position, even with the Baltimore offense looking no better than league-average.

Tucker has been perfect thus far, going 6-for-6 and making all four of his extra point chances this season.

EDGE Analysis

Tucker has been one of the most consistent kickers since entering the league in 2012 and that hasn't changed a bit this year as Tucker has made the most out of his opportunities. While the Ravens offense hasn't found its way in the endzone very often this year, they've been able to move up and down the field enough to provide Tucker some decent fantasy value. He remains one of the safest kickers in all of fantasy football.

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.
