Description: Nick Folk received the Jets' franchise tag on Friday. SOURCE: Anwar Richardson, Yahoo Sports
Insight: Folk's annual salary will increase from $780,000 to just under $3.4 million. He was the 11th-highest scorer among fantasy kickers last season.
3/13/2012 2:10:00 PM
Description: Placekicker Nick Folk has resigned with the Jets for 2012.
Insight: Folk saw a huge dropoff in field goal attempt in 2011 from 39 to 25. He converted 19 of them and went 44-for-44 on extra points for 101 points which put him 22nd among fantasy kickers.

Description: Jets PK Nick Folk, who was offered a sixth-round tender, will have to compete for the placekicking job with Nick Novak. SOURCE: PRO FOOTBALL WEEKLY
Insight: Folk should benefit, though, from the new kickoff rules. He averaged 62 yards per kickoff, ranking near the bottom of the league. He was more consistent in 2010, though, finishing the season with seven consecutive field goals made, and should still have a leg up when the training-camp competition begins.
11/19/2010 2:03:00 PM
Description: Folk missed three field goals in the team's Week 10 overtime victory at Cleveland, but special teams coach Mike Westhoff says he hasn't lost faith in the kicker yet.
Insight: Teams tend to say such things by waiving kickers. One has to figure that Folk's unsteadiness will at least make the team think twice before sending him in for longer attempts. He's no more than an average fantasy option right now, even for a kicker. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Jets K Nick Folk struggled mightily in Thursday's practice, missing his first four field goal attempts before receiving a "bronx cheer" on his first successful kick.
Insight: Don't expect Folk to be the Jets kicker all season as other veteran options will be brought in. (sportsBuff.com)
4/8/2010 8:31:00 PM
Description: Jets K Nick Folk believes his struggles last year all stemmed from his offseason hip surgery to repair a labral tear.
Insight: If that?s true, then the Jets got a heck of a steal as Folk used to be one of the most accurate kickers in the league. (SportsBuff.com)
2/23/2010 2:50:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, via Twitter, that the Jets have signed Folk.
Insight: Folk struggled in 2009 kicking for the Cowboys, and was eventually released. Incumbent Jets' kicker Jay Feely is scheduled to become a free agent, but the team may bring in competition for Folk even if Feely signs elsewhere. (SportsBuff.com)
2/17/2010 7:36:00 PM
Description: Pro Football Talk.com reports Folk will have tryouts with the Giants and Jets later this week.
Insight: Folk was cut by the Cowboys in December after enduring significant struggles. He should find an opportunity with another team for next season. (SportsBuff.com)
2/5/2010 2:13:00 AM
Description: ESPN Dallas.com's Calvin Watkins reports it is "doubtful" the Cowboys will bring Folk back after waiving him in December.
Insight: Folk blamed holder Matt McBriar for his struggles in 2009, but he could find work with another team this offseason. (SportsBuff.com)
12/21/2009 8:32:00 PM
Description: According to NFL.com, the Cowboys have waived Folk.
Insight: This is no surprise, with the Cowboys' signing of former Redskins' kicker Shaun Suisham. Folk is unlikely to latch on anywhere for the rest of this season, but should be able to find a new team for 2010. (SportsBuff.com)
12/21/2009 12:33:00 PM
Description: ESPN's First Take reports the Cowboys are looking for replacements for Folk.
Insight: Folk missed a short field goal in Saturday night's game against the Saints, and luckily it didn't cost the Cowboys the win. He has now missed 10 field goals this season. (SportsBuff.com)
12/16/2009 11:00:00 AM
Description: According to the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys' head coach Wade Phillips said rookie David Beuhler is "a ways away" and suggested Folk will keep his job for this week.
Insight: Folk has misses six of his last nine field goals, and if he continues to struggle the Cowboys may have to look outside the organization for kicking help. He cannot be trusted as a fantasy kicker. (SportsBuff.com)
12/14/2009 12:43:00 PM
Description: The Dallas Morning News reports that the Cowboys' head coach Wade Phillips said the team will "look at all our options" regarding the kicker situation.
Insight: Folk is just 3-for-9 on field goals over the last five games, including 1-for-2 on Sunday against San Diego. Kickoff specialist David Beuhler may become an option, but the team could easily look outside the organization for help. (SportsBuff.com)
12/8/2009 11:27:00 AM
Description: Folk has missed five of his last seven field goal attempts.
Insight: The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys' coaches are not blaming Folk, but suggesting that they may change holders to help alleviate the problem. Folk's lack of consistency is hurting his fantasy value. (SportsBuff.com)
12/2/2009 10:44:00 AM
Description: According to the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys' head coach Wade Phillips admitted he is a little concerned about Folk.
Insight: Folk has gone 15-for-21 on field goals this season, including 4-for-8 from 40-49 yards out. But he has not missed any crucial kicks and is not in any danger of losing his job. He has said his surgically repaired hip is feeling fine. (SportsBuff.com)
8/31/2009 1:51:00 PM
Description: Folk connected on two field goals (along with a 49-yarder negated by penalty) in Saturday night's game against the 49ers. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)
Insight: Folk had hip surgery in May, but now appears to be 100%. The Cowboys have an above average offense, and Folk could be a top-10 (or even top five) fantasy kicker this season. (SportsBuff.com)
6/17/2009 2:54:00 AM
Description: Folk had a down year as he made only 20-of-22 field goals and 42 extra points last season with the Cowboys.
Insight: Folk underwent surgery to repair a right hip labral tear in March and remains questionable to be ready for the start of training camp. Folk's job is safe for now but he will need to prove that he is healthy and can regain his form as a top fantasy kicker. (SportsBuff.com)
10/7/2008 2:31:00 PM
Description: Folk had one field goal and was perfect with his four extra point attempts in the Cowboys? Week 5 win against Cincinnati.
Insight: Folk is the kicker for a Cowboy offense that spends a lot of time in the red-zone. He should be a solid play this week against Arizona. (SportsBuff.com)
