  • Nugent converted both of his field-goal attempts while connecting on three of four extra-point attempts in Sunday's victory over the Bengals. Nugent took advantage of one of Chicago's best offensive performances of the season as he posted the second-best fantasy performance by a Bears kicker this season. He could be a sneaky fantasy option, as Chicago kickers have been provided with multiple field goal opportunities in five of their last six games.

  • Mike Nugent: Set to join Chicago
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Bears plan to sign Nugent to replace Cairo Santos, who re-injured his groin during Sunday's 15-14 loss to the 49ers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Nugent previously filled in for the Cowboys' Dan Bailey, who also dealt with a groin injury but returned for Week 13. Given the state of Chicago's offense, Nugent will be among the least attractive options at his position. It doesn't help that he's never been good from distance, connecting on just 11 of 28 field-goal attempts from beyond 50 yards in his career.

  • Cowboys' Mike Nugent: Will be released
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cowboys are slated to release Nugent in the near future, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports. Although Dan Bailey didn't attempt an extra point or field goal in his return Thursday, the Cowboys are confident he's past the groin injury that forced four DNPs in a row. As a result, the team doesn't have a need for a second kicker and will cut Nugent loose.

  • With Dan Bailey (groin), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Chargers, anticipating playing in the contest, Nugent may not handle placekicking duties for the Cowboys in Week 12, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports. Despite Bailey's imminent return, it appears the Cowboys will keep Nugent on the roster this week, and it sounds like both kickers could be active Thursday. Bailey, who has missed the last four games while battling a groin strain, said he's experiencing slightly more stress on kickoffs than field goals, so Nugent could be called upon to handle the former duties if he ends up dressing for the Thanksgiving Day contest. However, if his point-scoring opportunities come to an end, Nugent would lose all of his fantasy value.

  • Cowboys' Mike Nugent: Scores four points
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nugent did not attempt a field goal but did make all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-17 win over the Chiefs. Nugent did all that was required of him Sunday, but his performance was a far cry from his 15 points during his Cowboys debut. Considering Nugent is a stand-in for Dan Bailey (groin), however, the team should be happy with his production thus far.
