Santos converted three of four field-goal attempts and made both extra-point tries in Sunday's win over the Broncos.
Santos fared well in his second game of the season, but wasn't able to convert a 47-yard attempt early in the fourth quarter, his first miss of the season. Sean McVay already mentioned there is a chance Greg Zuerlein (groin) is able to return this week, according to Myles Simmons Rams' official site. Santos has done a nice job filling in for Zuerlein and could potentially find himself on another roster should his time with the Rams come to an end in the near future.
Santos is likely to handle kicking duties for the Rams on Sunday against the Broncos after coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that Greg Zuerlein (groin) is, "probably another week away" from returning, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Santos converted two field goals and all three extra points in Sunday's win over the Seahawks in his first game with the Rams. The altitude at Denver provides an added bonus for Santos, who remains an appealing fantasy option as the fill-in kicker for the best offense in the NFL.
Santos hit two field goals and converted his three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 33-31 win over Seattle.
While Santos' fantasy value and tenure kicking for the Rams may be fleeting, he's definitely worth a look in most settings while Greg Zuerlein (groin) is on the shelf. After Sunday's solid showing, Santos has connected on 92 of 109 field goals (84.4 percent) dating back to his rookie season in 2014.
Santos will handle the Rams' kicking duties Sunday against the Seahawks after coach Sean McVay announced Wednesday that Greg Zuerlein (groin) wasn't ready to return to game action, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.
The Rams signed Santos on Tuesday to replace Sam Ficken, who was cut after converting on only one of his three field-goal attempts while replacing Zuerlein the past two weeks. McVay expressed optimism early in the week that Zuerlein might be available by Sunday, but that enthusiasm was dampened when the Rams added Santos to the roster. Assuming Zuerlein progresses as anticipated, Santos' stay with Los Angeles could be limited to just one game, but the Rams' prodigious offense will make Santos an appealing fantasy option however long as he remains on the roster.
The Jets will release Santos (groin) on Wednesday now that he's fully healthy, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Santos couldn't stay healthy enough during the evaluation period to make his case for a 53-man spot, so his run with the Jets will come to a close. He will be free to latch on with another team.
