Vikings' Kai Forbath: Close battle for kicker job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath and rookie Daniel Carlson were "neck and neck" all spring in the competition for the starting placekicker job and the competition may last through the first couple of preseason games or longer, special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer told Courtney Cronin of

Forbath re-signed with Minnesota this offseason but the Vikings later took Carlson in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. We'd think Carlson would be the favorite for the job since the Vikings spent a draft pick on him, but the competition will be one to watch this preseason.

Vikings' Kai Forbath: Could be on the way out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath's tenure in Minnesota appears to be in jeopardy following the Vikings' selection of kicker Daniel Carlson in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Chris Tomasson of reports.

Forbath re-signed with Minnesota this offseason but the renewing of vows between the two could be short-lived. Newly-acquired kicker Daniel Carlson is believed to be one best kickers in this year's draft class. Forbath's time in Minnesota could be up, but he'll likely still be kicking for someone else next season.

Vikings' Kai Forbath: Staying in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings re-signed Forbath on Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Forbath joined the Vikings in the aftermath of the Blair Walsh fiasco in 2016 and hasn't looked back, despite a challenge from Marshall Koehn in training camp last year. During 23 regular-season games with the team, Forbath has notched double-digit points nine times, powered by 45 of 53 on extra-point attempts and 47 of 53 on field-goal tries. Assuming he upholds that standard in 2018, he should rank among the top-10 kickers backing up a Kirk Cousins-led offense.

Vikings' Kai Forbath: Converts career-high 32 field goals in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath converted 32 of 38 field-goal attempts and 34 of 39 PATs over 16 games in 2017.

Though he finished top-10 in the league in terms of converted field goals, Forbath's 84.2 percent accuracy was just 18th-best leaguewide while his five missed PATs was tied for the most among all kickers. However, Forbath was among the better legs on kickoffs considering he finished as Pro Football Focus' 12th-highest-graded player in that category. He'll now be an unrestricted at the end of the league year, but the Vikings have made no indication they intend to re-sign the seven-year veteran.
