by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Bills kicker Dan Carpenter has some competition for the team's kicking job after the team signed Billy Cundiff on Wednesday, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports.

Carpenter, who missed a 30-yard field goal this past Sunday against the Giants, is 5 for 7 overall this season, plus he has also missed one of his 12 extra point attempts thus far.

At this stage, it's unclear who will be the Bills' kicker in Week 5, with coach Rex Ryan noting Wednesday with regard to the situation, 'we'll see who will handle everything Sunday based on how the week goes.'

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Kicker Robbie Gould nailed all three of his field-goal attempts, but missed 1 of 2 extra-point tries in the Bears' 22-20 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

Gould came through in the clutch for the Bears, nailing a 49-yard field goal with two seconds remaining in the game to give his team their first win of the season. Prior to those heroics, Gould missed his first kick of the season when his first-quarter extra-point attempt was blocked.

He's 5 for 6 on PATs and 9 for 9 from the field, including three makes from 50-plus yards.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said kicker Nick Novak is adjusting to the kicking operation -- the snapper and the holder -- when discussing Novak's miss in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, the Houston Chronicle reports.

O'Brien acknowledged the actual kick -- a 53-yarder that fell well short of the crossbar -- was not close, but he wants to see Novak getting "comfortable with the whole operation."

Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein remains perfect through four games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein connected on a 30-yard field goal and hit all three of his extra points in Sunday's 24-22 victory against Arizona.

Although he hasn't been used extensively, Zuerlein has still been rock solid with six field goals and eight extra points. While that's not going to garner much fantasy attention, he certainly has produced as well as St. Louis could have hoped thus far.

Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos makes seven field goals in Week 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos made all seven of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Bengals.

Santos had all of four field goal attempts through three weeks this season, but nearly tripled his total with his efforts Sunday. The Chiefs face the relatively porous defense of the Bears in Week 5, which could lead to a fair amount of scoring chances for a team averaging 25 points per game.

Vikings kicker Blair Walsh misses another field goal in Week 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Vikings kicker Blair Walsh made two of three field goals and both extra point attempts in Sunday's loss at Denver. He missed a 39-yard field goal attempt. "He needs to make those kicks. It's disappointing," head coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities.

Walsh's struggles continue as he's missed a field goal in his of his last seven games, including the preseason. He's 5 of 7 on field goal attempts during the regular season.

Chargers PK Josh Lambo nails three in Week 4 victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Chargers placekicker Josh Lambo was officially 3 for 3 on field goals attempts, including the game-winner, and was also perfect on three extra points in helping defeat the Browns on Sunday.

Lambo was good from 46, 45, and 39 yards, but he missed a 44-yard attempt on the final play of regulation only to be bailed out by a penalty on the Browns.

In a year in which plenty of kickers have already missed important kicks for teams throughout the league, Lambo was extremely fortunate to get a do-over in this one.

Packers kicker Mason Crosby made 1 of 2 field goals and 2 of 2 extra points in Sunday's victory over the 49ers.

Crosby missed his first field goal of the season at the end of the first half Sunday, but he made his next attempt, from 31 yards out. Crosby has totaled 33 points on seven field goals and 12 extra points through four games this season.

Jaguars kicker Jason Myers misses two key field goals Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Jaguars kicker Jason Myers connected on 2 of 4 field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Myers was 5 of 6 on the season entering Sunday, and while his two made field goals provided some fantasy value, both misses proved to be costly for the 1-3 Jaguars.

With six seconds remaining in the game, Myers missed what would have been a go-ahead 53-yard field goal, and he again failed to connect in overtime, pushing a 48-yarder wide left on Jacksonville's second possession of the extra period. The Colts subsequently assumed possession at their own 30 yard line and marched down the field for a game-winning field goal of their own.

Browns PK Travis Coons sends four through uprights Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Browns placekicker Travis Coons was perfect again Sunday, hitting four field goals (40, 36, 33, 28) and converting his only extra point attempt.

Coons remained flawless on the season, providing his best scoring output to date. As a cheap option in daily formats, Coons certainly returned well over his projected value. The Cleveland offense must perform more consistently before he can be confidently recommended to Fantasy owners, but it has been scoring more points than expected recently.
