  • Rams' Lucas Havrisik: Could be replaced by veteran

    The Rams are considering elevating veteran kicker Mason Crosby, whom they signed to their practice squad Wednesday, to the active roster to kick Sunday versus Baltimore, Adam Grosbard of The Orange County Register reports.

    Havrisik was chosen to replace Brett Maher as Los Angeles' kicker beginning in Week 8, but he's largely struggled in the role, going just 7-for-10 on field-goal tries, with two of the three misses coming from inside 50 yards. Consequently, Crosby was signed to the practice squad Sunday and is now under consideration to replace Havrisik as the team's kicker for Week 14. Nonetheless, head coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that the Rams won't yet be cutting Havrisik, so the team may be setting up a competition between he and Crosby before settling on a permanent solution.

  • Texans' Matt Ammendola: Likely kicking for another week

    Ammendola will likely serve as the Texans' kicker Sunday against the Jets, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Ammendola has been filling in for Ka'imi Fairbairn (quadriceps) for the past four games, and it appears the 26-year-old will need to fill in for at least one more week. Fairbairn is already eligible to come off of IR, but according to Wilson, the team is contemplating waiting one more week to reinstate him to the 53-man roster.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Comes up clutch in win

    Carlson made two field goals and three extra points in Sunday's 27-19 victory over the Chiefs.

    Carlson had missed a kick of some variety in four straight appearances entering Sunday's contest, but he was true on all his attempts in Week 13, including field goals from 40 and 48 yards that gave the Packers successive five- and eight-point leads late in the fourth quarter. The Packers stuck by Carslon through his rough patch, and they figure to do the same rest of the way.

  • Bengals' Evan McPherson: Pair of clutch kicks in win

    McPherson converted two of his three field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point tries in Monday night's 34-31 overtime win over the Jaguars.

    McPherson started off Monday night's contest by missing a 57-yard field-goal attempt, but he was a perfect 6-6 on kicks after that miscue. The third-year kicker out of Florida drilled a 54-yarder to put the Bengals up by three with 2:28 to go in the fourth-quarter, and he made a 48-yard game-winning field goal in overtime. McPherson's most recent outing should make fantasy managers optimistic about his rest-of-season value, as Jake Browning was able to lead Cincinnati's offense to 34 points in Week 13's affair, which ties the team's season-high in points scored in a single game.

  • Jaguars' Brandon McManus: Another miss Monday

    McManus made one of two field-goal attempts and all four PATs during Monday's 34-31 loss to Cincinnati.

    McManus missed a 48-yard field goal in the fourth quarter that would have given Jacksonville the lead, though he came through from 40 yards in the final minute to push the game to overtime. The 32-year-old made all 15 of his field goals from Week 4 to Week 11, but he's gone 4-for-6 over the past two games and is now 24-for-28 on the season.

  • Chargers' Cameron Dicker: Keeps streak alive

    Dicker made both of his two field-goal tries in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Patriots.

    Poor weather conditions and dreadful offensive inefficiency meant Dicker was the sole catalyst for points on the board, and he delivered by making both of his 38-yard field-goal attempts in the second quarter. The 23-year-old has also not missed a field goal since Week 3. With a proven ability to be consistent week after week, and two or more field-goal attempts in four of the last six weeks, Dicker is a solid start in any league.

  • Younghoe Koo K | ATL

    Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Stays perfect

    Koo made both of his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try during Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets.

    Koo sank multiple field goals for the seventh time this season and continued his perfect streak. He hasn't missed a kick since Week 3,and has 17 made FGs and 14 PATs during that stretch. Koo has made 96 percent of his field-goal attempts this season, which is a career-high mark for a guy who's already considered one of the most consistent kickers in the NFL.

  • Wil Lutz K | DEN

    Broncos' Wil Lutz: Perfect on kicks

    Lutz made his only field-goal attempt while converting both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Texans.

    Lutz continued his perfect streak on field-goal attempts Sunday, making all 12 of his tries since Week 10. With that said, the veteran kicker was unable to produce much against the Texans as the Broncos' offense struggled to get much going throughout the contest. Lutz will look to have more of an impact on the scoreboard when the Broncos visit the Chargers in Week 14.

  • Buccaneers' Chase McLaughlin: Limited to PATs in win

    McLaughlin did not attempt any field goals and made all three of his extra-point tries in the Buccaneers' 21-18 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    McLaughlin did not get any field-goal tries for the second time in three games, although this time that unfolded in victory. The veteran kicker has been true on 41 of the 43 total kicks he's attempted through 12 games, including a perfect 22-for-22 tally on extra-point attempts. McLaughlin will have the benefit of kicking in a dome environment during Sunday's Week 14 divisional road clash against the Falcons.

  • Eddy Pineiro K | CAR

    Panthers' Eddy Pineiro: Makes his kicks

    Pineiro made his only field-goal attempt and lone extra-point try in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Pineiro converted from 23 yards on his field goal. With the Panthers offense struggling to move the ball, though, he was limited to four points for the third straight week. That stretch leaves him with 73 points on the season, placing him outside the top 25 at his position.
