Gould converted both of his field-goal attempts (33, 48) and all four PATs in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Rams. Gould finishes the season 39-for-41 on field-goal tries, a conversion rate (95 percent) that was only bested by Graham Gano of the Panthers on 11 fewer attempts. In fact, one of his two misses was a block, so the veteran was even slightly better than his final totals indicate. Maybe the 34-year-old was out to prove the Chicago Bears -- who struggled kicking the ball this year -- wrong for letting him go, as his 49-for-51 mark over the past two years is near the tops amongst all NFL kickers. Whatever the case, Gould looks as good as ever, and should benefit from what appears to be an upward-trending offense in San Francisco next season.
Gould made a 27-yard field goal but missed one of his six extra-point tries in Sunday's 44-33 win over the Jaguars. Gould's missed extra point was just the fourth time he's misfired on 65 total attempts this season. The reliable veteran has tallied 56 points over the past four games, moving him into fourth league-wide in scoring.
Gould was perfect on all six of his field-goal attempts Sunday, adding an extra point in a 25-23 win over the Titans. Jimmy Garoppolo has not only improved the 49ers' receiving options, but his presence has made Gould one of the best fantasy kickers by affording him 15 field-goal opportunities over the past three weeks. The 35-year-old has been as accurate as ever, missing just one field goal (the other was blocked) over that span and going a perfect 4-for-4 from 50-plus yards. San Francisco's offense will face one of its stiffest tests against the Jaguars' vaunted defense next week, so it would be realistic to assume a reduced number of scoring opportunities for the red-hot placekicker.
Gould made field goals from 52, 35, 25 and 41 yards in Sunday's 26-16 win over the Texans, when he also made both his extra-point tries. Gould has now notched 29 points in two games since Jimmy Garoppolo took over as San Francisco's starting quarterback. While it remains to be seen whether his rise in production continues, that's the best two-week stretch Gould has put together this season.
Gould went 5-for-5 on field-goal attempts Sunday, accounting for all 15 of the 49ers' points in a win over the Bears. Revenge games for kickers probably don't move the fantasy needle much, but Gould had about as successful of a return to his former stomping grounds as we've seen in recent history. The 34-year-old stuck it to the club that kicked him to the curb after an 11-year run in Chicago by delivering the final blow from 24 yards out with just four seconds left in the game. This was actually the second time this season that the veteran kicker has nailed five field goals in a single game. While a repeat performance seems unlikely, Gould's excellent accuracy combined with the marked improvement of the offense under Jimmy Garoppolo makes him a strong play in an indoor environment next Sunday against the Texans.
