Vikings' Dan Bailey: First misses of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made one of his two field-goal attempts and one of two extra-point tries during Sunday's 21-16 loss to the Packers.

Bailey converted all four of his extra-point tries during the season opener but logged a much more uneven effort Week 2. The veteran's job security still appears stable at this point, but it remains to be seen how much rope Bailey will be given if he struggles with accuracy going forward.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Converts all four XPs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made all four of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Atlanta. He did not attempt a field goal.

There was some talk Bailey's job could be in jeopardy after an uneven training camp, but he made every kick in the preseason and his job security looks decent at the start of the regular season.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Makes two long field goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made both of his field-goal attempts, from 43 and 54 yards, in the Vikings' preseason loss to the Bills on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Kaare Vedvik missed another field goal attempt during the game (he's 1-for-4 in the preseason). There was some talk Bailey's job could be in jeopardy after an uneven training camp, but he made every kick in the preseason and should begin the year as the team's placekicker.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Doesn't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey did not play in Saturday's preseason win over Arizona.

Bailey has been uneven in training camp, but hasn't missed a field-goal or extra-point attempt in the preseason. It looks like Bailey will win the placekicking job after Kaare Vedvik missed two field goals in Saturday's game, but his hold on the job is tenuous.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Stays in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey is re-signing with the Vikings on a one-year, $1 million contract that maxes out at $2 million with incentives, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

With only $250,000 guaranteed, Bailey likely will face competition for the kicking job during training camp. His career field-goal percentage (86.6) is the fifth best in NFL history, but he's trending in the wrong direction after back-to-back seasons at exactly 75 percent. The 31-year-old missed five kicks in the 40-49 range last season, providing most of his value on extra points (30 of 31) and field goals under 40 yards (16 of 17). There will be better choices available at the end of fantasy drafts.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Makes only attempt in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey converted his sole field-goal attempt and made his only extra-point try during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Bears.

Bailey's only field-goal try of the day came from 45-yards. After being signed by the Vikings in Week 3, Bailey made 75 percent of field goals he attempted (21-for-28) and converted 96.7 percent of his extra-point tries (30-for-31). The veteran kicker is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but Bailey shouldn't have difficulty finding a starting job elsewhere in the league if he doesn't re-sign in Minnesota.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Picks up some chip shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey converted all three of his extra-point attempts and connected on field-goal tries of 24 and 29 yards during Sunday's 27-9 win over Detroit.

Bailey looks to be getting back in the swing of things after a dreadful stretch from Weeks 12 through 14 during which he connected on just two of his six field-goal attempts. He's four for four since. The veteran kicker might be trending back up, but he's still relatively high risk and moderate reward. He remains among the league's least-accurate kickers, all the while only four of his 20 field goals this season have gone for over 40 yards, none in the past eight games.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Perfect showing against Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey converted both of his field goals and all five of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 41-17 victory over Miami.

Bailey entered Sunday's game struggling of late, missing four of his last six field goals. The 30-year-old veteran has converted just 72 percent of his kicks, making him hard to trust in fantasy formats.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Has kick blocked
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey had his only field-goal attempt blocked, but made his lone extra-point try in Monday night's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks.

Bailey's scoring opportunities were limited by a sluggish Vikings offense. However, after Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner appeared to boost himself up to block Bailey's 47-yarder, his lone field-goal attempt still played a big part in the game's storyline. Controversy or not, Bailey has now missed four kicks over his last three appearances, no longer making him the model of consistency he once was.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Misses field goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey missed one of his two field-goal attempts but made his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Patriots.

Bailey missed wide left from 48 yards on his first attempt, but later converted from 39 yards on his second try. The veteran has now made just two of his five field-goal opportunities over the past couple weeks, raising concern levels as Minnesota enters the last quarter of the season.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Misses two more field goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey converted one of three field goals and all three PATs during Sunday's 27-20 victory over Green Bay.

Bailey could have had a huge day in both fantasy and real life had he been able to convert on a pair of long-range field goals from 48 and 56 yards out. Now just 4-for-8 from beyond 40 yards in 2018, Bailey may not have the complete trust of the coaching staff going forward, which could play a role in how often coach Mike Zimmer decides to go for it on fourth down in four-down territory down the stretch.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Kicks two field goals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey converted both his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Bears.

Bailey's two field-goal attempts came from 36-yards, and were both successful. Since signing with the Vikings in Week 3, Bailey has missed only three field goals and one extra point. He should see a fair amount of volume during Sunday's divisional tilt against the Packers.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Converts all four kicks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made his only field-goal attempt from 39 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions. He also converted all three extra-point attempts.

After missing two field goals in Week 5, he's made 6-of-7 field-goal attempts in his last four games. His only miss during that span came from 42 yards.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Misses extra point in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey did not attempt a field-goal and made two of three extra-point tries during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

Bailey logged his first game without a field goal attempt as a Viking. The 30-year-old will look to bounce back against the Lions on Sunday.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Three field goals in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey converted three of four field-goal attempts and made all four extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Bailey's only missed field goal was a 42-yard attempt during the end of the first half, but he did connect on a separate 43-yard try. The 30-year-old remains a solid fantasy option against the Saints in Week 8.

October 16, 2018 01:52 PM
Vikings' Dan Bailey: Makes both field-goal attempts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made field-goal attempts of 48 and 37 yards and converted all three extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Arizona.

Bailey missed two field goals the week before, so Sunday's outing was a confidence builder.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Struggles early, finds rhythm late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey connected on three of his five field-goal attempts and knocked through both of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 23-21 win over the Eagles.

Bailey caused some headaches early with a couple of missed kicks in the first half of Sunday's affair. The usually serene kicker seemed a bit rattled following his poor start, but he found his rhythm in the second half. With the Vikings up six points and two minutes remaining in the game, Minnesota opted to send out Bailey for a 52-yard attempt despite him having missed a pair of kicks from closer distance earlier in the contest. Not only did Bailey's boot sail true, but the kick had plenty of distance and split the uprights, all but reassuring Minnesota fans that he'll be their guy moving forward.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Misses two field-goal attempts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made three of five field-goal attempts, missing from 45 and 28 yards, in Sunday's win at Philadelphia. He converted both extra-point attempts.

Bailey looked to be extending Minnesota's woes at kicker early in the game with two misses in his first three attempts, including a 28-yarder. However, he rebounded by essentially sealing the win with a key 52-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Makes three field goals Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey was 3-for-3 on field goal attempts and made two extra points in Thursday's loss to the Rams.

After not getting a single attempt in his Vikings debut, Bailey got the chance to showcase his leg Thursday and was perfect in doing so. The Vikings offense returned to form in Los Angeles, and as long as that keeps up, Bailey should be seeing plenty of opportunities moving forward.

September 24, 2018 03:00 PM
Vikings' Dan Bailey: No kick attempts in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey did not attempt a kick in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

It was a disastrous day for the Vikings' offense, and as a result, Bailey's services were not needed on his first day in a Minnesota uniform. Bailey didn't even get a chance to kick an extra point on the team's lone scoring drive because the Vikings had no choice but to attempt a two-point conversion. This appears to be an outlier day for what was a highly productive Minnesota offense for the first two weeks, so Bailey should still be considered an elite fantasy option at kicker moving forward.
