Nugent was perfect on three field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

The problem for the Bengals was that Nugent had to have those three attempts in the first place, with two of those coming from less than 30 yards. The Steelers shut down the deep ball and tightened up in the red zone, leaving the Bengals to settle for three points instead of seven.

Nugget hit three of four field goal attempts, including the 47-yard game-winner in Sunday's Week 1 victory over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The one miss for Nugent was from long distance, just pushed to the right. After a rough preseason, Nugent bounced back with a good performance in Week 1, though his kickoffs still left a little to be desired.

Nugent has missed three field goal attempts so far in the preseason, though his competition in camp has been hurt, Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nugget might see a push from Zach Hocker on Sunday against Jacksonville. Hocker has been out the last two games with a strained tendon in his plant foot. Nugget has been serviceable but never really outstanding as a field goal kicker in his tenure with the team, though he's added to his value with his ability on kickoffs.

Nugent made all four extra point attempts and his only field goal opportunity in Sunday night's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The field goal was a bit of a bitter fruit for the team, however. It came in lieu of a touchdown on the Bengals' final drive, and allowed the Cardinals enough time to drive down and score the game-winning field goal. Nugent is now 14-of-17 on field goal attempts this season.

Nugent kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime to complete the Bengals' comeback win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Nugent's game-winner was banked off the left upright. He earlier tied the game in regulation as time ran out. He's 5-for-7 on field goals this season, and 17-for-18 on extra points.

Nugent made both of his field goal attempts in Sunday's win over the Raiders but did have an extra point blocked.

EDGE Analysis

The Bengals' offense took care of business early, giving Nugent plenty of opportunities to contribute. If their offensive line can remain intact, Nugent might prove to be a value.

Nugent has reached agreement on a two-year, $4 million contract with the Bengals, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Nugent is a reasonably accurate kicker, but he's never had one of the league's bigger legs. He thus won't hold a ton of fantasy appeal, unless the Cincinnati offense finally takes the next step.

Nugent returned to Monday's game against Denver despite suffering a hamstring injury during the contest.

Nugent suffered a minor hamstring injury Monday but is back on the field for the conclusion of the game against the Broncos. He was able to convert on a 23-yard field goal after initially suffering the injury and seems to be in the clear moving forward as a result.

Nugent suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's game against Denver but is listed as probable to return.

Without many viable backup options for Nugent, it would be somewhat surprising to not see him return to Monday's game. As it stands, he currently has converted on all three extra point attempts to go along with two successfully converted field goal attempts.
