Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Misses extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made two of two field-goal attempts and three of four extra-point kicks in Thursday's 41-25 win over Detroit.

Fairbairn's extra-point miss was his second of the season. He went wide left after Houston's first score of the day, but the failure did not come back to bite the Texans, who scored on six of their 12 possessions and had a defensive touchdown. Fairbairn, who has recorded nine points in three of the past four games, is tied for 22nd in kicker scoring with 7.27 points per game.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Perfect in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made both field-goal attempts and all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 27-20 win over New England.

With much better conditions Sunday than he had in last week's game in Cleveland, Fairbairn was perfect inside Houston's dome. He's recorded nine points in two of the last three games.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Misses FGA in three-point loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn missed his lone field-goal attempt and successfully converted his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Browns.

Fairbairn's wind-blown 46-yard attempt sailed wide left, his third miss of the season. The Texans eschewed a field-goal try earlier in the game when interim head coach Romeo Crennel opted to go for it on fourth down inside the Browns' five-yard line, an attempt that proved unsuccessful. Fairbairn returns home, where the conditions will be more favorable, in Week 11 against the Patriots.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Connects from 54 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn successfully converted two of two field-goal attempts and all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 27-25 win over Jacksonville.

One of Fairbairn's field goals was from long range, a season-high 54-yarder, his second boot from beyond 50 in 2020. The nine points was Fairbairn's highest total since Week 5, the last time Houston faced Jacksonville.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Misses second FGA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn converted two of three field-goal attempts and both extra-point kicks in Sunday's 35-20 loss to the Packers.

Fairbairn shanked a 38-yard attempt, just his second miss of the season, but benefitted from two stalled red-zone trips to register eight points. It was the third time in the last four games he's had multiple field goals.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Scores six points in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn converted his lone field-goal attempt and three of four extra-point kicks in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Titans.

Fairbairn's first missed extra point of the season turned out to be costly. Had he made the kick, Texans head coach Romeo Crennel would not have felt the need to go for a two-point conversion later (it failed). The kicker's six-point effort snapped a two-game run in which he posted double-digit points and converted all six field-goal tries. The difference against Tennessee was the Texans' ability to finish drives. They scored touchdowns on all four of their red-zone looks, reversing a trend that had them settling for field goals on four of five red-area appearances the previous two weeks. Fairbairn currently ranks 20th in scoring among kickers with 7.3 points per game.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Has 12-point week in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn converted all three field-goal attempts and was three of three on extra-point kicks in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jaguars.

Houston's offense moved the ball more consistently in Week 5, reaping the benefits of an effective running game, which enabled Fairbairn to post a season-high 12 points. He's scored 23 points over the last two weeks, and Sunday's game was third in five contests that he's converted at least three field goals.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Takes advantage in red zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn converted all three field-goal attempts and two extra-point kicks in Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Vikings.

Fairbairn was the beneficiary of Houston's failure to finish in the red-zone (zero TDs in three trips), although he got a chance to show off his leg with a boot from 50 yards out. His 11 points were a season high and marked his second double-digit tally of the season. The four-year kicker has been inconsistent through four weeks -- 2, 10, 3, 11 points -- which is befitting the NFL's 28th-ranked scoring offense (20.0 PPG).

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Three points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn did not attempt a field goal and was successful on all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 28-21 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 3.

The Texans' wildly inconsistent offense has rendered Fairbairn unplayable -- he's recorded two, 10 and three points through the first three games. Notably, six of Houston's 10 drives ended in three-and-outs Sunday, naturally capping Fairbairn's upside.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Registers 10-pointer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made all three of his field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point kick for 10 points in Sunday's 33-16 loss to the Ravens in Week 2.

Fairbairn rebounded from a disappointing two-point effort Week 1. The Texans' offense made only two forays into the red zone, so they needed Fairbairn's leg more than they would like, including boots of 44 and 45 yards. Houston's offense hasn't been in sync the first two games, which could make for inconsistency from Fairbairn. Perhaps it's due to the new weapons or a new play-caller, offensive coordinator Tim Kelly. Houston looks to solve it's issues Week 3 on the road against Pittsburgh.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Misses lone FGA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn missed his only field-goal attempt and made 2-of-2 extra-point kicks in Thursday's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.

Fairbairn pushed a 51-yard attempt late in the second quarter. It was by no means a chip shot, but it served as a momentum shift. After the miss, the Chiefs moved into position to kick a field goal as time ran out in the first half and extended their lead to 17-7. As Kansas City piled on points, the Texans attempted a two-point conversion after one of their touchdowns, and Fairbairn was limited to two points on an evening in which Houston's offense converted touchdowns on all three of its red-zone appearances.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Staying with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn is signing a four-year contract to stay with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 26-year-old kicker played all 16 games each of the past three seasons, converting 83.7 percent of field-goal attempts and 91.7 percent of extra-point tries, including 10 of 16 from 50-plus yards. Fairbairn's volume has been far less consistent than his accuracy -- 25 FGAs in 2017, a league-high 42 in 2018, and then 25 again in 2019. The average of 30.7 per season is a reasonable expectation for 2020, assuming the Houston offense remains solid with Deshaun Watson leading the charge.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Scores seven in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn converted one of two field-goal attempts and four of four extra-point kicks in Sunday's 51-31 loss to the Chiefs.

In a game that became a shootout, one in which the Chiefs scored touchdowns on seven consecutive drives, sending Fairbairn out to attempt field goals was not part of the thought process in the second half. One year after leading the NFL in points, Fairbairn dropped back to 19th among kickers with 100 points. The 25-year-old placekicker enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Sends Texans to divisional round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn converted both of his field-goal attempts in the Texans' 22-19 overtime win over the Bills in their AFC wild-card playoff game.

Fairbairn booted a 41-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter that sent Houston to the divisional round after an accurate 28-yarder in overtime. The 25-year-old placekicker has made all of his kicks over the last seven games, going 9-of-9 on field goals and 16-of-16 on extra points.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Quiet finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made both of his extra-point kicks in Sunday's 35-14 loss to Tennessee in Week 17.

With nothing on the line for the Texans, head coach Bill O'Brien limited his skill position players, including quarterback Deshaun Watson and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who dressed but did not play. Running back Carlos Hyde (five snaps) and Darren Fells (two special teams snaps) were kept under wraps most of the day, while Kenny Stills (knee) and Will Fuller V (groin) were inactive. That resulted in an nonexplosive offense that limited Fairbairn's opportunities to put points on the board.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Delivers division-clinching win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn successfully converted all three field-goal attempts and two extra-point kicks in Saturday's 23-20 win over Tampa Bay in Week 16.

In a throwback to 2018, the Texans' offense stalled three times in the Buccaneers' red zone and needed Fairbairn to bail things out. He did so from 32, 25 and 37 yards, the last one being the game-winning score that clinched the AFC South for the Texans. Fairbairn has 98 points, which is middle of the pack among kickers, entering the regular-season finale against the Titans next week.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Perfect in Week 15 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made his lone field-goal attempt and all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Titans in Week 15.

The Texans were in the red zone five times and converted three for touchdowns. The other two ended with Fairbairn's 29-yard field goal and an interception. He has just 22 field-goal attempts in 2019 after a league-leading 42 tries last season. Houston's red-zone efficiency has robbed Fairbairn of opportunities; however, the third-year kicker is in line for a potentially productive Week 15 when Houston faces Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers rank 30th in scoring defense.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Scores six points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made his lone field-goal attempt and all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 38-24 loss to Denver in Week 14.

Fairbairn showed off his leg once again, connecting on a 54-yard field goal for Houston's lone first-half score, but that was his lone FGA. Houston fell behind 31-3 at half time, and playing for field goals was not an option in the second half. Fairbairn's made three of six from beyond the 50 this season and 10 of 16 over his career.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Marginalized in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made all four of his extra-point kicks for four points in Sunday's 28-22 win over New England.

The Texans were in the business of scoring touchdowns against New England's top-ranked scoring defense, which limited Fairbairn's scoring opportunities. Houston scored touchdowns on four of its five trips to New England's side of the field.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Perfect in Week 12 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn made both of his field-goal attempts and both extra-point kicks in Thursday's 20-17 win over the Colts .

Fairbairn connected from 35 and 36 yards and remains a perfect 9-for-9 inside the 40-yard line. His overall productivity, however, has dropped off in 2019, largely due to Houston scoring more touchdowns when entering the red zone. Fairbairn ranks 23rd among kickers with 6.5 points per game.
