  • Giants' Aldrick Rosas: Hits field goal, extra point

    Rosas converted a 25-yard field goal and an extra point in Monday's 24-10 loss to Detroit.

    The first-year kicker has now hit both of his attempts on the season, both within 29 yards. Typically the kicker on a team with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Eli Manning would have starting potential. At this point, however, the Giants don't look good enough on that side of the ball to give their kicker much of a chance.

  • Phil Dawson K | ARI

    Cardinals' Phil Dawson: Hits game-winner

    Dawson hit three of four field goals and an extra point in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over Indianapolis.

    After hitting field goals of 27 and 40 yards earlier in the game, Dawson missed a 42-yarder as time expired in the fourth quarter that would have won the game. After a Jacoby Brissett pick, Dawson got another chance and ripped a 30-yard winner in overtime. The 19-year vet is four of six on field-goal tries to start the season.

  • Blair Walsh K | SEA

    Seahawks' Blair Walsh: Misses PAT in Week 2

    Walsh made two field goals Sunday but missed his only point after attempt.

    Walsh's long was of 27 yards. His penchant for missing PATs is partly what got him released in Minnesota last year.

  • Matt Prater K | DET

    Lions' Matt Prater: Connects from 56 yards on MNF

    Prater converted his only field-goal attempt and lone PAT during Monday's 24-10 victory over the Giants.

    Prater had an angel on his side Monday, as his lone field goal bounced off the horizontal pipe and luckily found its way through the uprights. While that only made for Prater's second field goal try in as many games, both of his attempts have been successful and, notably, from 56 yards out or longer. Next week's matchup with the Falcons should be a high- scoring affair and could lead to more chances for Prater to show off his reputably strong leg.

  • Broncos' Brandon McManus: Shanks lone field-goal attempt

    McManus hit all six of his extra-point attempts, but hooked his 49-yard attempt in the first quarter wide right.

    McManus later hit a 50-yard field goal that was nullified by a Dallas penalty, so there's hope that McManus doesn't have a case of the yips. That said, the Kid has missed two of his first three official field goal attempts to start the season after inking a lucrative extension. His reputation is that of a fantasy starter, but keep McManus on a short leash in the coming weeks.

  • Nick Folk K | TB

    Buccaneers' Nick Folk: Perfect on field goals in opener

    Folk connected on field goals of 42, 50 and 23 yards and made two of three extra-point attempts in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

    The veteran kicker delivered as expected, providing a tangible reminder of why he quickly prevailed in the preseason kicking competition against Roberto Aguayo. Folk showed impressive leg on second-quarter 50-yarder and a missed extra-point attempt following Robert McClain's pick-six served as his only blemish on the day. Folk appears primed for plenty of scoring opportunities this season due to the Bucs' improved offense.

  • Cody Parkey K | MIA

    Dolphins' Cody Parkey: Converts game-winning FG

    Parkey made four field-goals and an extra-point attempt in the Dolphins' season-opening victory over the Chargers on Sunday.

    Parkey converted a clutch 54-yard kick with 1:10 remaining in the fourth quarter to give the Dolphins the lead for good. It was a fantastic start to the season for the 25-year-old, which he will hope to continue against the Jets in Week 3.

  • Bills' Stephen Hauschka: Nails lone FG attempt Sunday

    Hauschka recorded the Bills only three points in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

    After missing a 46-yard field goal, his lone attempt, in the team's season opener, Hauschka converted on a 45-yard kick in Week 2. He is now 1-of-2 on the season and will look for more opportunities in Sunday's contest against Broncos.

  • Browns' Zane Gonzalez: Converts only field-goal attempt Sunday

    Gonzalez converted on a 38-yard field goal during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Ravens. He also made his only PAT attempt.

    Gonzalez is perfect on the year, hitting both of his field-goal attempts during the first two weeks of the season. However, with Cleveland's inept offense, his chances will be slim, making him an untrustworthy fantasy option.

  • Jets' Chandler Catanzaro: Connects on both opportunities Sunday

    Catanzaro made both his field-goal attempts during Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

    Catanzaro continued his hot start to the year Sunday. Although the Jets don't figure to put up a lot of points this season, Catanzaro seems like a reliable three points once the team gets him in position.
