Ryan Santoso: Returns to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santosa reverted to Detroit's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Santosa drilled both of the PATs he attempted during Sunday's loss to the Bears. It's unclear if he will remain the team's placekicker with Austin Seibert's (COVID-19) status for Week 5 currently unknown.

Lions' Ryan Santoso: No field-goal attempts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso converted two of two PATs during Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Bears.

Santoso got another start with Austin Seibert (COVID-19) still unavailable. Unfortunately, a pair of Lions fumbles killed his chances of having a respectable fantasy day, though the lack of production shouldn't be a surprise for any kicker attached to the Lions offense. Even if Santoso gets another chance with Detroit in Week 5 against Minnesota, he won't be a recommendable fantasy option in any format.

Lions' Ryan Santoso: Set to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso was elevated off the practice squad Saturday.

Santoso will once again handle the kicking duties with Austin Seibert still sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols. The 26-year-old is 3-for-3 on field goals to date, but given the likely tough weather conditions in Chicago on Sunday and an inept Lions offense, don't expect much fantasy production from the kicker.

Ryan Santoso: Reverts to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso reverted to the Lions' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Santoso was elevated to the active roster for Sunday's loss to the Ravens, and he enjoyed a perfect afternoon by making his lone field-goal attempt and both PATs. The 26-year-old could be elevated from the practice squad again for Week 4 should Austin Seibert (COVID-19) remain sidelined.

Lions' Ryan Santoso: Perfect with limited opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso made his only field-goal attempt and both of his PATs during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens.

Santoso was hardly needed before drilling a 35-yard go-ahead field goal with just over a minute left in the game, only for Justin Tucker to come back the other way with a game-winning and league-record 66-yarder as time expired. If Austin Seibert (COVID-19) is forced to miss another week, Santoso could get another opportunity with Detroit in Week 4 against Chicago.

Lions' Ryan Santoso: Elevated to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions elevated Santoso from the practice squad Saturday.

With Austin Seibert (undisclosed) likely unavailable for Week 3 after testing positive for COVID-19, the Lions will rely upon Santoso as their place kicker for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens. The Minnesota product was the Panthers' kicker Week 1 and made both of his field-goal attempts but missed an extra point.

Ryan Santoso: Could be called upon Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso could be activated from the practice squad after the Loins placed starting kicker Austin Seibert (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Santoso linked up with Detroit's practice squad just one day ago, but if Seibert isn't able to clear the league's protocols for COVID-19 in time to suit up against the Ravens on Sunday, the former could end up seeing an immediate starting opportunity. He operated as Carolina's placekicker Week 1 and converted both of his field-goal tries and one of two extra-point attempts.

Ryan Santoso: Joins Detroit's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions signed Santoso to their practice squad Wednesday.

Santoso was Carolina's kicker during the season opener. The 26-year-old made both of his field-goal attempts, but he missed an extra point and was later waived by the Panthers. The Minnesota product will look for a fresh start as he joins the Lions' practice squad.

Ryan Santoso: Released from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans released Santoso from their practice squad Monday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Santoso joined the Titans' practice squad after being cut by the Panthers due to a missed PAT during Week 1. The 26-year-old kicker has made both of his field-goal attempts in the NFL and will look for a fresh start for the remainder of the 2021 campaign.

Ryan Santoso: Joins Tennessee's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso has been signed to the Titans' practice squad, Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com reports.

Santoso was cut by the Panthers after missing one of his two extra-point attempts in the team's season opener. He will now be brought in by Tennessee, where he suited up for three games in 2019.

Ryan Santoso: Cut loose by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers cut Santoso on Tuesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Santoso's debut with the Panthers wasn't horrible, but he did miss one of his two extra-point tries. The move allows the Panthers to hold on to their conditional seventh-round pick. Dominik Eberle is the only other option within the organization unless the Panthers want to continue to explore outside help.

Panthers' Ryan Santoso: Misses extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso made both his field-goal attempts but missed one of his two extra-point tries in Sunday's 19-14 win over the Jets.

Santoso converted from 22 yards on his first regular-season kick as a Panther, but he then went wide left on his first extra-point try. The recent addition fortunately responded by making his next couple kicks, including a 29-yard field goal, but after Carolina already cut ties with Joey Slye following an inconsistent preseason, Santoso will surely aim to eliminate any more simple mistakes going forward.

Panthers' Ryan Santoso: Wins job over Slye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers are going with Santoso as their kicker, waiving Joey Slye on Saturday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Acquired in a trade with the Giants on Thursday, the 26-year-old Santoso made each of his five kicks in Friday's preseason win over the Steelers. He could lose the job in a hurry if he struggles, but he'll at least get the chance heading into a favorable Week 1 matchup with the Jets.

Panthers' Ryan Santoso: Likely wins job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso made both his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Friday night's 34-9 preseason win over the Steelers.

Santoso, who was acquired by the Panthers earlier in the week, took full advantage of his opportunity to kick ahead of inconsistent incumbent Joey Slye. The former Giant started by banging a 52-yarder in off the right upright, then ended by converting a 27-yard field goal. In contrast, Slye missed a 49-yarder before making an extra point later on. Following that display, it'd now be surprising if Santoso doesn't take Slye's job ahead of the Week 1 matchup against the Jets.

Panthers' Ryan Santoso: Dealt to Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso was traded from the Giants to the Panthers in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick Thursday, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

Santoso signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants in January and converted a pair of extra-point tries during the team's first preseason games. The 26-year-old will provide competition for Joey Slye ahead of the regular season after the Panthers cut Dominik Eberle on Thursday.

Giants' Ryan Santoso: Drawing trade interest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso is garnering trade interest from multiple teams before the regular season begins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Santoso's path is blocked in New York by Graham Gano, but he is believed to be a starting caliber kicker. The 25-year-old has experience as both a kicker and a punter.

Giants' Ryan Santoso: Inks future deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Santoso has experience as a kicker and a punter, and he'll add depth at both positions heading into the 2021 season. With Graham Gano and Riley Dixon both under contract, Santoso's a long shot to make the final roster.

January 2, 2021 05:52 PM
Giants' Ryan Santoso: Brought up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants elevated Santoso to the active roster Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

There are currently no concerns about the availability of either kicker Graham Gano or punter Riley Dixon, but Santoso is being called up as insurance because he can handle both positions.

Ryan Santoso: Back with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santoso inked a contract with the Giants' practice squad Wednesday.

Santoso was waived by the Giants on Tuesday, as he was signed by the team as a backup play in case placekicker Graham Gano was forced to miss games while on the COVID-19 list. Santoso will revert back to the practice squad looking to earn another shot around the league at a 53-man roster spot as either a punter or a placekicker.

Ryan Santoso: Heads to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants waived Santoso on Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Santoso typically serves as a punter, but he was signed by the Giants to act as a placekicker in case Graham Gano was forced to miss games while on the COVID-19 list. Gano has returned, however, so Santoso was cut loose. He may revert to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
