Hauschka was perfect in Sunday's Wild-Card win over the Vikings, hitting one field-goal and one extra point.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hauschka is having one of the best seasons in his career, connecting on 29 of his 31 field-goal attempts. He ended the regular-season with 127 points, good enough to make him the eighth leading scorer in the league this season. He had his worst season in terms of extra points, converting 40 of his 44 attempts. However with the extra point moving back to the 15-yard line, more misses have been a common theme throughout the league. He'll continue to be a scoring asset as the Seahawks take on the Panthers on Sunday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hauschka had not botched a PAT since 2012. He's been his usual stellar self otherwise, missing just one field-goal attempt this season, and that one was blocked. His 21 field goals are only two off the league leader, and he's made four 50-yarders, second in the league.

Hauschka made his lone field goal attempt Sunday night, drilling a 54-yard field goal in a loss to the Packers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hauschka is now 4-for-4 on the year and he's also made all four of his extra point attempts, a good sign for fantasy owners. Considering Hauschka's made just 8-of-15 career 50+ yard field goals, his kick on Sunday could be an even better sign of things to come.

Hauschka is now 6-of-7 on field goals for the season, though he has yet to attempt a kick from 50+ yards. His lone miss came from 46 yards out against the Broncos, but with the bye week under his belt, the 29-year-old could receive a good amount of chances the rest of the season playing for potent offense.

Seahawks agreed to terms with K Steven Hauschka to a three-year, $9.15 million contract.

The deal includes $3.35 million guaranteed. Hauschka has quietly emerged as one of the game's most reliable kickers, going 57-of-62 (91.9 percent) on field goals over the last two seasons. That includes an 11-of-12 mark from 40-49 yards out and a perfect 3-of-3 from 50+ last season. Hauschka's average annual salary of $3.05 million is in line with recent deals signed by Jets K Nick Folk and Panthers K Graham Gano. Hauschka was fantasy's No. 4 kicker last season, a ranking he won't have trouble repeating.

The Seahawks will not use their franchise tag on free agent K Steven Hauschka.

Hauschka is coming off an excellent season, but Seattle won't go the Nick Folk route with him, which would've guaranteed Hauschka $3.556 million. Seahawks GM John Schneider does business differently than the rest of the league, and may let Hauschka test the market with the replaceability of kickers in mind.

Free agent K Steven Hauschka has an "outside chance" to be franchise tagged.

Hauschka would cost $3.6 million if franchised, but the Seahawks are considered more likely to re-sign him to a multi-year deal. One of the league's most reliable kickers, Hauschka was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2013 and missed only two field goals all year. He turns 29 this offseason.
