Player Outlook
Santos averaged 6.5 Fantasy points per game last year and 6.2 the year before that. It's not necessarily a byproduct of his talent, more like an indicator of how weak the Bears offense was at giving Santos field-goal tries. Their upgraded offense should push Santos to an extra point per week, but it's still not enough to make him a reliable weekly Fantasy kicker. He might have some upside weeks during the year, at which point you can claim him off waivers.

  • Bears' Cairo Santos: Won camp battle

    Santos is the Bears' starting kicker, as there is no kicker on the roster for him to compete with, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports. Santos has been extremely accurate in his three years with the Bears and he was more than 90 percent accurate on his field-goal attempts in 2022. The reason he wasn't much of a fantasy factor was because the offense often didn't score enough points. If the offense can make a leap this season, his accuracy may intersect with volume. If that happens, he could be a sneaky option in 12-team leagues.

  • Bears' Cairo Santos: Another season of high accuracy

    Santos converted an extra point in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18 and ended the season with 90 points over 16 games played. Santos has been extremely accurate in his three years with the Bears, and he was over 90 percent accurate on his field-goal attempts this season. The problem for fantasy is the Bears offense. He averaged well less than two field-goal attempts per game, and he hasn't averaged more than two attempts in any of his three years with the team. Unless the Bears offense makes a significant jump in 2023, his volume will make him tough to roster as a primary option in 12-team fantasy leagues. He's under contract through 2025.
