Justin Tucker – B+

Justin Tucker hasn’t been perfect this year, so his year is a bit of a disappointment. OK, I’m joking slightly with this grade. He remains one of the best kickers in the league, and by most measures, he deserves an A. By my scale, though, Tucker has not entirely exceeded expectations, thus he gets a B+.

Sam Koch – A

Sam Koch is on pace for a career-high in punting average, and his 41.5 net yards is borderline elite. Koch has been more accurate this year than ever, and his leg strength seems improved as well. Not bad for a guy who some thought could be a cap casualty.

Morgan Cox – A 

Morgan Cox made zero mistakes before a knee injury that knocked him out for the rest of the season. Get well soon.

Kevin McDermott – A

Kevin McDermott was unnoticeable in his Ravens’ debut, and I am just fine with that.
