Wish I had Santos, hot damn

Reid must have had him in fantasy - down 14 with 9:30 to go and he was still kicking field goals...

Go Greenies. That had to be one of the greatest all time FF kicking performances. I think he was a top 10 overall scorer this week in most leagues.

Sticking with McManus next 2 weeks.

Q: who do like Week 7 & beyond?

Brown (dropped today - can't get him until next week)

Catanzaro - trending

Gano - bye this week

I do believe the kicker to get coming out of the bye break will be Connor Barth. TB was leading the league in FGAs before they signed him, but Brindza (with the exception of course of the Saints game) couldn't hit anything. Barth is a pro (Herman used to talk him up) and he nailed all 3 attempts yesterday.

Travis Coons (CLE) has had a couple big weeks B2B. Anybody got anything on him? Browns offense has been clicking.

Josh Brown has been great and his bye week isn't until Week 11.

Our league member in Kuwait (soldier) dropped him last week to pick Barnidge. I was all set to part with Sproles to pick him up, but then I realized I can just swap out Ks.

I was planning on dropping a rostered guy to cover McManus' bye. But is it really worth carrying two kickers? I have a bunch of time share guys I don't want to let go of (Spiller, both Duke and 5-Touch David Johnson, AA.) Dropped players take a week to clear waivers, and Gano is out there as well (dropped for a bye cover last week.)

I could drop McManus and pick up Gano. Since his week 1 explosion, McManus has 40 points. In the first four weeks, Gano had 39 points. Nobody will be able to pick up the Denver K until next week when they're on a bye. I won't be able to put in a claim but after waivers clear I might get him back if I wanted him.

I think given the option of two stud Ks or one solid K who is past his bye - and keeping a PPR RB who might have value later - makes more sense.

F'ing kickers. If I get Gano I probably put him in and never think about my K again this year.

That's a very good call. Barth was the guy that saved the Broncos last year after the Prater/McManus mess. Then lost out to McManus this year in training camp. Barth's always been a pro though, and had some good years on some very bad Bucs teams.

Their 15 FGA leads the NFL through 5 weeks. Plus you'll get him after his buy if you pick him up next week.

In the meantime, Brown, Gould, and Catanzarro are guys I'm trying to lock down in all my leagues, if available.

How bout Lambo? Was trusted to attempt a 60 yards missed but had the distance. Chargers have good offense and bad defense so high scoring games. Good weather so rarely a factor....

I'm guilty of chasing the points on Santos.

Thinking maybe they will be kicking a decent amount of FGs going forward with the Charles injury though.

So when I dropped Vinatieri (yes) it was with the idea that the Colts would be stuck in neutral with Luck and just get worse with him out, but the offense has actually been better with Hasselbeck and Vin is back to his high scoring ways - 11-12 last two weeks.

I'm only rolling him this week because Lambo @ Lambeau is just too fun to say.

I'm almost to the point where I would rather get a kicker in round 13 or so, to ensure I get one of the top 2-3 guys.

On that note, I was lucky enough to get Gostkowski after an owner dropped him for the bye.

I promptly sent Hauschka to the wire.

How Hauschka can sit on the wire in a 12 man league is ridiculous.

GB is not a good matchup for him so I dropped him for Folk this week. However, Lambo has impressed me. Strong accurate leg and he's got a pretty cake schedule coming up so I'll try to get him back.

McManus is such a stud this year

Missed for the first time (from 51) but Manning is such a terrible QB he's going to continue to get a ton of opportunities

I'm covering his bye next week - can't remember the last time I didn't just flat drop my K, but he's worth it

Yeah, I held McManus...dropped A. Bradshaw to get Lambo for bye. I think I'll be able to get Bradshaw back if need be; but league is not ppr, so less concerned.

Added Barth this morning in my main leagues, dropping Gould.

And I thought I was crazy just for thinking about dropping AA for DGB. Hate having that guy rotting on my bench.

Having McManus vs playing kicker roulette can mean an extra 6-9 points in any given game.

Which K would you rather own for the rest of the season?

Gould - Bad weather in CHI makes me want to stay away

Gano - Offense starting to click; has been pretty consistent

Barth - Back with TB; up and down offense scares me a bit

Forbath - At least he is kicking in a dome

Thoughts?

Easy one is Gano. Warm weather, good O but not great so chances

Even though Gould has so much against him except ability, I go for him

Than Barth but TB o can be bad as they play from behind which leads to lower FG attempts

Forbath cannot be played in any league that rewards yardage. He cant kick past 45 and knowing Payton, he wont last this season. Best place to kick though

Tampa Bay as of now one of the leading teams in field goal attempts

Tampa has 18 FGAs on the season in 6 games... the problem is, before Barth no one could make them consistently. For the year they have only made 12 FGs.

Their pace of 3 per game leads the league. Denver is 2nd with 17 FGAs through 6 games. The Chiefs have 19 FGAs, but have played 7 games to date. Fire up Barth everywhere until you're given reason not to...
