Jaguars activated K Chase McLaughlin from the reserve/COVID-19 list. 

McLaughlin was moved to the team's COVID list just last week. Jacksonville placed WR Trey Quinn (hamstring) on the practice squad to make room for McLaughlin on the active roster. He's made 21-of-26 field goal tries this year, additional sinking all 28 extra-point attempts on the season.

Felt like Young-hoe would have been Bob Krafts personal choice of kicker.     😱

How about this: since folks have already made their guesses for this contest, we’ll leave this one be (with apologies for all the distraction to the breaking K news of which there is currently none) a

Man - I suck at this!  lol  In that case, @seahawk 17 will also get a bottle of sauce!  I know the rules say a tie goes to the time-stamp, but I'm a rebel, and I hate stupid rules. 

Picked up Carlson for Sanders over the weekend. Going to seriously reconsider that move. It's looking like Sanders is no joke, and with Fitzmagic back, we'll see them move the ball again.

I picked up Carlson and dropped Koo.  Bad idea.  :wall:

That smarts. What'd he have, like around 23 points on five field goals or something like it?

Yeah, I see he did. Hey, at least you got the stadium right.

If you need help choosing the worst K amongst 4-5 choices, shoot me a PM.

It’s a gifting, wish I could impart it.

Probably sticking with Carlson again this week over Tucker, based on the matchups. Feels gross carrying two Ks.

The Rams fng Matt Gay has 3 40-49 FGs and a couple of 10.0 outings to start his career, good matchup at ARI this week. He was 11/14 and 5/8 from 40-49 and 50+ with the Bucs last year. Also missed 5 PATs and 2 inside 40 in 2019.

Tyler Bass has had some big games and will be kicking in the 49ers temporary home (Cardinals‘ State Farm Dome) - they’re like 6th in FFPA to K.

If it makes you feel any better, I dropped Koo for Carlson this week.

Koo has been phenomenal but I can see how the GB & DET games would make a manager second guess. Cannot believe what a turd the Raiders laid against such a weak team.

I knew I wanted either Koo or Carlson last week... tried to put off the decision as long as I could to see what else might happen in some other games. Then someone in my league jumped on Carlson, forcing me to go for Koo or risk another game. So I took Koo by default. Much thanks to that guy.

Falcons ST coordinator Bernie Parmalee indicated Younghoe Koo (quad) "should" play in Week 13 against the Saints.

For those who still haven't banned kickers in their league, just know Koo, fantasy's overall K1, has been a prodigy with at least 12 fantasy points in six of Atlanta's last seven games. It sounds like he'll be good to go at home on Sunday.

Steelers promoted K Matthew Wright from the practice squad.

He'll replace Chris Boswell, who was downgraded to doubtful for tonight's game with a hip injury. Wright battled Boswell for the starting role at last year's training camp but has been on the team's practice squad since. Wright still holds the University of Central Florida's school record for career points (375) and field goals made (55).

Who do we like for Week 14? I’m dumping Carlson who I’ve used the last two weeks (6.0 & 8.0); top 4 candidates on our wire:

• Meyers v NYJ (gives up the most FFP to Ks)    
• Slye v DEN (3rd most)
• Succop v MIN (2nd most)   
• Hopkins @ AF (5th most)

Seems like no wrong answers here. I like Hopkins and Meyers based on recent form.

I'm rostering Tucker and considering picking up Succop....

I was able to snag Tucker this week on waivers for the Succop bye which necessitated his dropping.

Tucker @ Cleveland and then home vs JAX then NYG

Succop home vs MINN then on the road (indoor games) vs ATL and DET

I think with the unknown weather variable, I would give the edge to Succop w/ two games guaranteed indoors and against poor defenses of ATL and DET.  Anybody concur? or think that I should roll with Tucker?

I made a move to pick up Succup for the reasons you listed above. Great defense, so should be playing with a lead and not discouraged to kick field goals, good offense, great gamescripts and game environments. You never know how kicker production will unfold, but I like all of these factors.

Chris Boswell (hip) practiced in full Thursday. 

Matthew Wright kicked for the Steelers last week with Boswell sidelined with his hip injury. It looks like Boswell will return for Week 14 against Buffalo. He's in a decent spot in what could be a shootout with the Bills.

Rams elevated K Austin MacGinnis to the 53-man roster ahead of Thursday night's game against New England. 

Matt Gay (shoulder) was limited headed into Week 14. It looks like MacGinnis will get the start against the Patriots. MacGinnis made all ten of his field goal attempts for the XFL's Dallas Renegades this year before being signed to LA's practice squad. He's only an option in two-kicker formats.

Rams K Matt Gay (shoulder) is active for Week 14 against the Patriots. 

Gay isn't a great fantasy option for a contest with a 43.5 over/under. Inactive for the Rams are K Austin MacGinnis, RB Ray Calais, RB Xavier Jones, OLB Terrell Lewis, C Brian Allen and WR Trishton Jackson.

Zane Gonzalez (back) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Giants.

Gonzalez will miss at least one game with his back injury. The Cardinals promoted Mike Nugent from the practice squad to replace Gonzalez.

With Zane out- my options are:

 

Zuerlein DAL, @ CIN

Gould SF, vs WAS

Gano NYG, vs ARI

Fairbairn HOU @ CHI

Hopkins WAS @ SF

Wright PIT @ BUF

Nugent ARI @ NYG - Zane's replacement

Not sure what to do, was counting on Zane. Any good streaming options week 14 out of this bunch? Leaning Zuerlein since CIN has given up 10+ fantasy points to kickers 7 games this year

Jaguars promoted K Aldrick Rosas from the practice squad.

In what is seemingly the Jaguars' millionth kicker transaction of 2020, Chase McLaughlin has been waived. The Jags are headed into a potential shootout with the Titans, but Rosas is not on the Week 14 streaming radar.

Vikings’ K Dan Bailey has missed four kicks that would have accounted for 10 points today.

https://twitter.com/adamschefter/status/1338219675537321990?s=21

Lutz also missed his first FG. Not a good day for Bailey who was 27 of 29 in 2019. Lutz is in a mini-slump, missing 2 in a row and 3 of his last 5 FGs.

Jets claimed K Chase McLaughlin off waivers from Jaguars.

Sergio Castillo missed three of his four field goal tries in the first half of Sunday's blowout to Seattle, forcing the team to look elsewhere for his inevitable replacement. McLaughlin meanwhile made 4-of-5 field goals and 3-of-4 extra points in three appearances for Jacksonville this year. Expect Castillo to be waived in the coming days.

Broncos placed K Brandon McManus on the reserve/COVID list.

McManus checked into a local hotel on Monday where he'll self-isolate for the next five days. The Broncos have K Taylor Russolino on the practice squad and can activate him to the 53-man roster if McManus can’t turn around for Saturday. There's still a chance he's cleared in time for kick-off with five consecutive days of negative tests.

Jets waived K Sergio Castillo. 

Castillo was part of "Shank Sunday" around the league, missing three field goals in the Jets' 40-3 loss to the Seahawks. Sam Ficken (groin), who is eligible to return from injured reserve, will presumably be activated to start against the Rams. He will find himself in the K30-32 range for the fantasy semis.

Bucs placed K Ryan Succop on the reserve/COVID-19 list. 

The Bucs' entire specialist trio of Succop, P Bradley Pinion and LS Zach Triner have landed on the coronavirus list. It is unclear which of the three, if any, are positive. The most likely assumption is that one is positive and the other two are close contacts. Whoever is positive will be ineligible for Sunday's game against the Falcons, one that will produce fantasy relevance for kickers. Greg Joseph is the next man up for the Bucs.

Taylor Russolino will kick for the Broncos on Saturday against the Bills. 

Brandon McManus, who was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, would have been eligible for a Sunday game. Denver takes on Buffalo in a Saturday matchup, meaning the Broncos will be without their big-footed kicker. In his place will be Russolino, who played in the XFL this year. He shouldn't be rostered in fantasy leagues as the Broncos are underdogs and therefore unlikely to be in position to attempt field goals.

Zane Gonzalez (back) did not practice Wednesday or Thursday. 

Gonzalez missed Week 14 against the Giants with the back issue. Mike Nugent stepped in and nailed four field goals on his way to becoming the week's highest scoring kicker. Nugent is in a good spot this week against the Eagles since the Cardinals are favored.

Just FYI for all those out there. I know you're picking on points allowed by the defense, and the Jets are bad, but so is Matt Gay (watch -- he now sets a modern record for points scored or something). I have a choice and am rolling with Carlson tonight against LAC. Sanders is also available, but I don't trust Tua and the no WR offense they've got right now. Lynn Bowden? No thanks. No Gaskin or Ahmed, maybe? How will they move the ball?

Ugh. Lot of questions this important weekend in FF.

Its part of why it is still so hard some times to trust Koo...the Falcons are so meh.  But Ryan and Co seem just good enough to get into FG range and then squander a TD chance and settle for FGs which has worked so far...Buffalo decent at that too.  Which is why I go back and forth between Koo and Bass.  Just don't want to miss that Koo 18 point game to settle for Bass getting 11 and lose a close semi final.

And yeah...I entertained Gay much less than the other two.

I also rolled with Carlson. Got us 9 points. I am satisfied with that. Could have been substantially worse.

Is Gay that terrible?

He's universally the highest ranked kicker I see left in waivers. Since I'm a "drop a kicker every week into waivers" guy I have my eye on him. The matchup is certainly there for a lot of opportunities.

It's either him, Succup, or Boswell.

He got cut by the Bucs after being a draft pick, if I'm not mistaken. So not so good. I don't know if his inaccuracy will outweigh his volume. Likely not, and he's consensus #1 based on that. I didn't go with him and took the nine. What's your floor requirement? It is the Jets, after all.

Yeah. That had the makings of a five point game. I'll breathe a sigh and take it. I shoot for 9-11, so that's not bad.

Went Succup instead. He's off the Covid list and is indoors @ATL. 

Gotta think off the bye and needing a win TB controls this game. And Brady and that offense usually have enough misfires in the redzone to give Succup opportunities.

May switch to Gay at the last moment if I feel like I really need a chance at some silly K output. Feel like Gay could give you 15+ points, but could also be terrible and give you negaive 1 left and right and drive you nuts.

Jets activated K Sam Ficken (groin) from injured reserve.

Ficken has been out since Week 11. He's 9-of-10 on field goals and 8-of-10 on extra points this season. The Jets recently cut replacement K Sergio Castillo.
