Bailey made his lone kick -- an extra point -- in Sunday's 40-23 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

The Vikings' offense had a pitiful first half, as Kirk Cousins tossed three interceptions and the team failed to capitalize on its lone red-zone trip. They entered halftime with a 20-0 deficit, and although the team turned it around in the second half, it was too late for Bailey. The team scored three touchdowns but attempted just one extra point in the second half, often going for two points instead. The Vikings have a Week 7 bye on the docket, and they'll return to action in Week 8 against the Packers, who have allowed 27.8 points per game this season.

Bailey made two field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 27-26 loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

After missing a pair of field goals over the last two weeks, Bailey was perfect in the primetime showdown, knocking home kicks from 52 and 46 yards. It was the first field goal from beyond 50 yards that Bailey connected on since Week 14 of last season, and it's impressive that he did it in rainy weather. The Vikings' offense has plenty of weapons and should keep providing Bailey opportunities to score, and he'll be a top-tier option at home Week 6 against the Falcons.

Bailey made one of two field goals and all four extra-point attempts in Sunday's 31-23 win over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey connected on a 31-yarder in the first half, but he sent a 55-yarder wide right in the second half. That made the Texans' final drive a bit more stressful for the Vikings, but they escaped with their first win of the season. Bailey has now missed two field goals and had another blocked over the last two games, so he'll try for a clean slate in Week 5 against the Seahawks.

Bailey converted one of two field-goal attempts and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old had his 54-yard attempt blocked during the third quarter but received a chance from closer due to an offside penalty, but he missed wide right from 49 yards out. Bailey hasn't had much production through three games, going 3-for-4 on field-goal attempts and 4-for-4 on extra-point attempts. The Texans have surrendered 95 points in three games, so Week 4 could be a favorable matchup.

Bailey his a 21-yard field goal -- his lone attempt -- in Sunday's 28-11 loss to the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

It was a brutal day for the Vikings, as they gained just 208 total yards and crossed midfield just three times all afternoon. As a result, Bailey's fantasy value has taken a hit. The Titans come to Minnesota in Week 3, a matchup that could prove more favorable considering the Jaguars put up 30 points against them in Week 2.

Bailey converted his only field-goal chance from 35 yards and made his only extra-point attempt in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

The kicking game was about the only aspect of Minnesota's performance that didn't struggle in Sunday's 43-34 loss. Bailey's fantasy stats suffered when the Vikings went for three two-point conversions after falling behind big early.

Bailey made his first seven field-goal attempts in training camp, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey re-signed with the Vikings in March after converting 27 of 29 field-goal tries last season. The veteran will hope to remain consistent as the lone kicker on the team's roster heading into the upcoming campaign.

The Vikings re-signed Bailey on Thursday, Lindsey Young of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey was hit-and-miss in 2018, connecting on 21 of 28 field-goal attempts, but his accuracy returned last season when he went awry on just two of his 29 such kicks. Overall, he ranks fourth in NFL history with a 93.1 percent success rate on field goals, so he should continue to remain a viable kicker option in support of a Kirk Cousins-led offense.

Bailey made all four field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try during Week 17's win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey wraps up the 2019 campaign having played all 16 contests, converting 27 of 29 field-goal tries and 40 of 44 extra-point attempts in that span. The 31-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2020, though the Vikings could have incentive to bring him back, coming off a reliable season.

Bailey hit all four field goals and three of four extra-point tries in Sunday's 39-10 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

The Vikings poured it on, and Bailey attempted four field goals for the third time this season. He was good from 26, 44, 38 and 27 yards, as he continues to be perfect from under 40 yards this season. The 31-year-old has also drilled all four kicks from beyond 50 yards, but his struggles with extra points -- 34 of 38 -- continue to follow him. Bailey will look to have a clean outing in Week 16 against the Packers to try keeping the team's NFC North dreams alive.
