Player Change Now Date
Ryan Longwell 6 09-04-09
Longwell’s projections get a slight tweaking due to the Favre Effect, though between Favre’s propensity for picks and ability to convert red zone possessions into touchdowns as opposed to field goal attempts the emphasis is on “slight”.
Player Change Now Date
Lawrence Tynes 9 09-04-09
Larry has looked solid this preseason, and it’s easy to forget that the guy who filled his role last year saw enough opportunities to make the Pro Bowl.
Player Change Now Date
Mason Crosby 10 09-04-09
Crosby is a miserable 50% on field goal attempts this preseason, including a miss from inside 30 and three failures from 50 yards and out. The Packer offense looks poised to offer far more PATs than FGAs, meaning Mason could be counting by ones instead of threes as well.
Player Change Now Date
Nick Folk 12 09-04-09
Nick has only hit half of his four field goal attempts but a 71-yard average on his kickoffs suggests that his hip won’t be an issue—and that Jerry Jones’ scoreboard might be an issue for more than just punts.
Player Change Now Date
Adam Vinatieri 14 09-04-09
Vinny is off the PUP and back kicking for one of the league’s most potent offenses. He missed his only field goal try, however, so both fantasy owners and the Colts should keep Shane Andrus on speed dial.
Player Change Now Date
Josh Scobee 16 09-04-09
Scobee has been perfect this preseason, including six-of-six from 40 yards and out. If Maurice Jones-Drew’s leg contusion costs the Jags any early-season red zone opportunities, it appears they’ll be ready.
Player Change Now Date
Steven Hauschka 18 09-04-09
Hauschka’s six-for-seven showing this preseason has all but sewed up the job, leaving Graham Gano for kickoff duty or the waiver wire and Matt Stover in retirement. And being that the Ravens play solid defense, leave their offense in good field position, and aren’t afraid to settle for three points, Hauschka makes an intriguing sleeper kicker candidate.
Player Change Now Date
Shayne Graham 26 09-04-09
Graham has been nicked up this preseason, and while it’s unlikely Chad Ochocinco steals his job it does make him a bit riskier of an investment as a fantasy kicker.
Player Change Now Date
Rian Lindell 27 09-04-09
The Bills’ offense looks downright ugly, so Lindell’s projected opportunities and fantasy value have been dialed back accordingly.
Player Change Now Date
Mike Nugent 28 09-04-09
Inconsistency continues to plague Nugent, but at least he’s healthy; as it stands, Matt Bryant hasn’t kicked in almost a month due to a hamstring problem and is in danger of losing his job. Kicking for the Bucs isn’t the greatest fantasy gig this season, but at least it’s a gig.
Player Change Now Date
Jason Hanson 30 09-04-09
As if kicking for the moribund Lions isn’t bad enough, the 39-year-old Hanson had surgery on his kicking leg two weeks ago and his availability for the season opener is in question.
Player Change Now Date
Ryan Succop 31 09-04-09
The knock on Mr. Irrelevant has been his accuracy, but Succop was seven-for-nine for the preseason and received a slight tweak upwards in his projections.
Player Change Now Date
Matt Bryant 33 09-04-09
A hamstring injury has kept Bryant from kicking for almost a month. He planned to give it a go in the Bucs’ preseason finale, knowing full well that his job is likely on the line. Even if he looks really healthy against the Texans, the Tampa Bay offense looks shaky enough that you’re bound to find more fantasy help elsewhere.
