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.

Saints' Kai Forbath: Signing with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Saints will sign Connor Barth, who will now compete with Forbath, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After cutting Josh Scobee loose earlier this week, the Saints were seemingly in the market for a kicker with just Forbath on the roster. An invitee at rookie minicamp last week, Barth will be tabbed to challenge Forbath, and the former's success rate in the Superdome (8-for-8 in his career) could very well aid in the competition.

Saints' Kai Forbath: Set to compete with Scobee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The New Orleans Saints have re-signed Kai Forbath to a one-year deal, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Forbath returns to the fold, but he's slated to face some competition this summer, with veteran kicker Josh Scobee having recently inked a deal with the Saints.

Saints' Kai Forbath: Nails 57-yard field goal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Forbath made both of his field goals attempts in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Forbath, who converted a 57-yard kick late in the first half, was one of the few bright spots for a Saints' offense that struggled mightily against a resurgent Houston defense. Since joining the Saints in late October, he's only seen three field goal attempts in five games but has made 16 of 17 extra point attempts. Forbath is firmly entrenched as the Saints' kicker for the foreseeable future, and while the team's offense has struggled lately, he's still a starting option for fantasy owners.
