Saints' Kai Forbath: Let go by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints have reportedly released Forbath, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

With the move, which follows the team parting ways with Connor Barth, Wil Lutz is now on track to open the season as the Saints' kicker.

Saints' Kai Forbath: Kicking competition remains close
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After four preseason games, it's still unclear Forbath or Connor Barth will enter the season as the Saints' Week 1 starting kicker, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Both Barth and Forbath had only limited opportunities in preseason exhibitions. Forbath, the Saints' kicker for 10 games in 2015, was 3-for-4 on field goals, missing a 50-yarder in the preseason opener in New England. Barth was 2-for-2, but he didn't have a chance to make a 50-yarder as his longest attempt was from 40. Each kicker made his only extra point, and both were solid on kickoffs. Perhaps the team feels more comfortable with the incumbent Forbath, but it would also be hard to cut a guy like Barth considering he didn't miss. The Saints will have difficult decision to make when rosters are due this Saturday, and all fantasy owners can really do is take a wait-and-see approach.

Saints' Kai Forbath: Kicking competition still "dead even"
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The kicking competition between Forbath and Connor Barth is still "dead even," according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com. Both players converted on their lone extra point attempts in Friday's preseason tilt against the Steelers.

Forbath would appear to have the edge due to his incumbent status, but the starting gig remains firmly up for grabs entering the final week of the preseason. A miss or a clutch kick in Thursday's finale would probably sway the decision either way. The winner is not likely to be a top-5 fantasy kicker due to the Saints' consistently high touchdown conversion rate in the red zone but should nonetheless be an above-average option.

Saints' Kai Forbath: Leads in kicking battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath is holding off Connor Barth for the starting kicker job, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, but the competition is "very close and far from decided."

Both Forbath and Barth kicked well during practice on Wednesday, but the battle between the two veterans still remains too tight to call. Although Forbath did himself no favors by missing badly on his only field goal attempt -- a 50-yarder -- in the Saints' preseason opener against the Patriots last week, his incumbent status likely gives him the early leg up.

Saints' Kai Forbath: Too early to call kicking battle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The early returns have been pretty solid for both Forbath and Connor Barth, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Forbath hasn't missed a kick in camp, while Barth has missed only one, and both kickers successfully nailed their four field-goal attempts during Monday's practice.

The reports from earlier this offseason were hardly glowing, as neither Forbath nor Barth instilled a ton of confidence in early workouts before training camp. As a result, it's nice to see both kickers off to a hot early start, though at this stage it's simply too early to call the competition. While the winner of the team's kicking duties should theoretically have some fantasy value backed by a Drew Brees-led offense, it's worth noting that the Saints' kicker production has ranked 28th, 26th, and 16th over the last three seasons.
