Bills' Dan Carpenter: Suffers down year in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dan Carpenter finished the season with 103 points, connecting on 23 of his 27 field-goal attempts and going 34 of 40 on extra point attempts.

Carpenter had the fewest field-goal attempts (27) and worst field-goal percentage (85.2) this season in his three-year stint with the Buffalo Bills . He also missed six extra point attempts, giving him the second worst percentage in the league. He is under contract through the 2017 season.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Ryan says he'll stick by him
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Following another shaky performance - which included his fifth missed extra point of the season - coach Rex Ryan says he's sticking with Carpenter based on his solid track record of kicking well in poor weather conditions, BuffaloBills.com reports. "We've got a veteran kicker that you guys know he can kick the conditions," said Ryan on Monday. "Not everybody can do that. I think obviously the one kick you can't kick it better than he kicked it, the 50-yarder. So you know that is fine."

We're not sure Ryan would have been so nice had the Bills lost Sunday in part to Carpenter's two missed kicks Sunday. We actually think the coach was a bit harsh on the veteran in the preseason, but now that the season has rolled on we're starting to wonder why Carpenter can't get it right on extra points. With the playoff race so tight, another missed kick could cost the Bills their season. That said, Carpenter has proven he can kick in the nasty Buffalo weather, so there's something to be said about not bringing in a new guy and throwing another variable into the equation, one where the Bills have almost no wiggle room left.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Clanking and shanking
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carpenter put up six points in Sunday's win over Houston, going one for two on field goals and three for four on extra points. The missed field goal was a 50-yarder that would have given the Bills a lead that may have been tough for the Texans to overcome.

A missed 50-yarder is forgivable, but Carpenter missed an extra point (he hit the left upright and it bounced out) that could have proved costly -- the second week in a row he's missed one. He's also missed five of them on the season. His 16 for 20 mark on field goals is serviceable for a team that plays most of its games in an outdoor stadium, but Carpenter may be skating on thin ice with the misses in close games. Coach Rex Ryan was all over him during the preseason, but Carpenter quieted things down with a pretty decent run. It looks like Rex's blood pressure may be a little higher again when evaluating his kicker, so we'll see if the coach has anything to say about it this week.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Strong Thursday production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dan Carpenter made all three of his field goal attempts in Thursday's win over the Jets, plus an extra point.

The 10 points is a nice way to start your games this week if you used Carpenter ahead of the weekend. He missed an extra point that could have proved costly in what was eventually a close game, but he's been mostly clean lately, making seven field goals in a row. That leaves him at 12 for 14 on the season, which gives him much better job security than when Rex Ryan was picking on him pretty much every day during the preseason.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Slightly more security?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dan Carpenter made both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Tennessee, while he didn't attempt a field goal.

Carpenter owners may have gotten a bit of a reprieve when Billy Cundiff was let go earlier in the week, but he's still far from being on Rex Ryan's good side after missing two field goals and an extra point so far. A 130-point scorer in each of his two seasons with the Buffalo Bills , Carpenter is far off that pace with just 28 points through five games. That puts him 26th in kicker scoring.
