Barth signed a one-year contract extension with the Bears on Friday, Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune reports. Barth will remain in Chicago for a second season after converting 18 of 23 field-goal attempts (78.3 percent) and 31 of 32 extra-point attempts last year.
Barth made his only field goal attempt while adding an extra point in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season having converted 18 of 23 field-goal attempts. Barth will be a free agent this off-season, but after having converted just 78 percent of his field-goal attempts, it's unlikely that he'll be in high demand. However, should he emerge as the kicker for a high-scoring offense, his fantasy value would definitely be higher than it was in 2016.
Barth connected on a pair of field goals along with three extra points in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Packers. Barth surpassed the six-point for the first time in six games, and he'll be a low-floor fantasy option to Week 16 against Washington.
Barth made his only field goal attempt while adding a pair of extra points Sunday against the Lions. Barth's was true from 38 yards out, but he had another disappointing fantasy day due to lack of opportunity. He's failed to top six points in any of his last five games, and he'll continue to be a weak fantasy option.
Barth drilled a field goal and three extra points Sunday against the 49ers. Barth was true on a 45-yard field goal in the snow at Soldier Field while also connecting on his only three extra point attempts. This was his highest scoring output in four weeks, and he's failed to reach seven points in all but three games in 2016. He's little more than an emergency option in most fantasy leagues.
