Raiders' Mike Nugent: Locked in for Week 1
Nugent is locked in as Oakland's kicker after Eddy Pineiro (groin) was placed on injured reserve over the weekend, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Pineiro was placed on IR before roster cuts, officially ruling him out for the entire season. The 36-year-old Nugent offers a wealth of experience, but he's never had the strongest leg and owns an underwhelming 81-percent career conversion rate on field goals. Nugent will make for a low-end fantasy option in Week 1 with the Raiders offense facing a tough Rams defense.
