Vikings' Dan Bailey: Back with Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings re-signed Bailey on Thursday, Lindsey Young of the team's official site reports.

Bailey was hit-and-miss in 2018, connecting on 21 of 28 field-goal attempts, but his accuracy returned last season when he went awry on just two of his 29 such kicks. Overall, he ranks fourth in NFL history with a 93.1 percent success rate on field goals, so he should continue to remain a viable kicker option in support of a Kirk Cousins-led offense.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Nails four field goals in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made all four field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try during Week 17's win over the Bears.

Bailey wraps up the 2019 campaign having played all 16 contests, converting 27 of 29 field-goal tries and 40 of 44 extra-point attempts in that span. The 31-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2020, though the Vikings could have incentive to bring him back, coming off a reliable season.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Busy day in California
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey hit all four field goals and three of four extra-point tries in Sunday's 39-10 win over the Chargers.

The Vikings poured it on, and Bailey attempted four field goals for the third time this season. He was good from 26, 44, 38 and 27 yards, as he continues to be perfect from under 40 yards this season. The 31-year-old has also drilled all four kicks from beyond 50 yards, but his struggles with extra points -- 34 of 38 -- continue to follow him. Bailey will look to have a clean outing in Week 16 against the Packers to try keeping the team's NFC North dreams alive.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Drills four kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made both field-goal attempts and two extra points in Sunday's 20-7 win over the Lions.

Bailey connected on tries from 27 and 50 yards, extending his streak to 10 straight field goals, although he missed a pair of extra points during that stretch. Overall, the 31-year-old has been superb this year, converting 18 of 20 attempts (90 percent), and he'll look to keep it rolling on the road in Week 15 against the Chargers.

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

Bailey made his only field-goal attempt but missed one of his four extra-point tries in Monday night's 37-30 loss to the Seahawks.

Bailey converted from 47 yards on his field goal but went wide left on his final extra-point effort, leaving the Vikings behind by four at a crucial time in the fourth quarter. Through 12 games, Bailey has now compiled 81 points, placing 15th among kickers league-wide.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Limited by game script
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 27-23 win over the Broncos.

Bailey's upside was capped due to game script Week 11, as the Vikings trailed Denver 20-0 entering halftime. The offense was forced into comeback mode, focusing on touchdowns at the expense of field-goal tries. Bailey will next take the field Dec. 2 against the Seahawks.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Perfect versus Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made both field-goal tries and both extra-point attempts during Sunday's 28-24 win over the Cowboys.

Bailey rebounded after missing an extra point Week 9, as he turned in a perfect showing versus his former team and accounted for eight of Minnesota's points on offense. The veteran is primed for a favorable matchup against Denver in Week 11.

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

Bailey connected on a 29-yard field goal but only made two of three extra points in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Chiefs.

Bailey's missed extra point put a damper on Ameer Abdullah's 16-yard touchdown catch, but it didn't end up having a major impact on the final score. The veteran kicker was outshined by counterpart Harrison Butker, who drilled four field goals -- three over 40 yards -- including the game-winning kick. Bailey will look to avoid hiccups in Week 10 on the road against Dallas, where he spent the first seven years of his NFL career.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Nails every kick in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made all four field-goal tries and his only extra-point attempt during Thursday's 19-9 win over the Redskins.

Bailey accounted for more than half of Minnesota's points during the TNF bout. The veteran logged his second contest of the season with four-field goal attempts, but fantasy managers should be wary of chasing that ceiling. Bailey also possesses a worrying floor, having gone without a field-goal try in three games this season. This lack of consistency will make him difficult to rely on Week 9 against the Chiefs.

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

Bailey missed his lone field-goal attempt but made all six extra-point attempts in Sunday's 42-30 win over the Lions.

Bailey missed the field goal wide left from 45 yards early in the fourth quarter, but Minnesota's explosive offensive performance salvaged some of his fantasy production with the six PATs. The 31-year-old is 8-for-10 on field goals and 22-for-23 on extra points this season, but his production has been inconsistent with one or zero field-goal attempts in four of seven games.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Flawless in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey made his lone field-goal attempt and all five extra-point tries during Sunday's 38-20 win over the Eagles.

Bailey's volume of extra-point tries salvaged his day for fantasy purposes. After a rough start to the season, Minnesota's offense has begun to click and things appear to be looking up for the veteran kicker.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Big day in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey drilled all four field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries during Sunday's win over the Giants.

Bailey accounted for half of Minnesota's 28 points during Sunday's win. He converted more field goals Week 5 than in the previous four contests combined.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Nothing doing versus Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey did not attempt a field goal or extra point during Sunday's 16-6 loss to the Bears.

Bailey put up a goose egg in Sunday's divisional match, during which Minnesota's offense was outmatched by the Bears' defense. It's the second time in four games that Bailey has been held without a field-goal attempt. Due to limited opportunities and concerns with accuracy, the veteran isn't a locked-in starter in most fantasy formats.

Vikings' Dan Bailey: Bounces back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey converted both of his field-goal attempts and all four PATs during Sunday's 34-14 victory over Oakland.

Bailey bounced back from a forgettable Week 2 performance in which he erred on both a field-goal and extra-point attempt. While he has the potential to be a fantasy-worthy starter on a Vikings offense averaging the seventh-most points per game in 2019, fantasy managers should keep in mind that the Vikings are set up for a road matchup against Chicago in Week 4. It's generally not advisable to play any kicker in the Windy City against the Bears' stout defense.

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.
