In a game where the 49ers struggled to move the ball in the snow, Dawson was unphased by the inclement weather, proving again that he is one of the most accurate kickers in the league even in his age-41 season. Next week's matchup against the Jets' league-average offense could keep the score close enough for Dawson to turn in a solid game.
Signed Saturday to replace Chris Boswell (abdomen), Bullock put up decent fantasy numbers, despite the Steelers going for their eighth two-point conversion of the season. It remains to be seen who will do the kicking for Pittsburgh in Week 14 against the Bills, who allow opposing kickers an average of 7.3 points per game.
Tucker's perfect season continued Sunday as he made all six of his kicks to account for eight total points. His five extra points were more than twice his previous season-high as Baltimore was able to put up 38 points on Miami's defense. Tucker's field goal was his league-leading eighth FG of at least 50 yards this season. For reference, no kicker made more than seven such kicks in the entire 2015 campaign.
Prater tied his career high for field goals made in a game Sunday, easily logging his most productive day of the season along the way. Prater again showcased his leg power by notching his second 50-yarder in four weeks. He'll look to stay on fire next week against an average Bears defense allowing the 17th-most points per game in 2016.
The 14 points marked a season high for Gostkowski, who has now logged 24 points over the Patriots' last two games and heads into the fantasy stretch run with some momentum.
Per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, it was thought that Boswell might be able to give it a go Sunday, but the team will play it safe with him and Bullock will get the nod in Week 13, thus making him a plug-in option for those who had hoped to use Boswell in their fantasy lineups.
With Boswell unable to go Sunday, Randy Bullock will handle the Steelers' Week 13 kicking duties.
Bullock's signing goes hand in hand with the news of Chris Boswell dealing with an abdomen issue. If Boswell is unable to play on Sunday against the Giants, Bullock will be slated to handle the kicking duties.
Boswell's addition to the injury report obviously came late in the week with the game just one day away, so the severity of his abdomen issue is a bit unclear. If he's ultimately unable to play, coach Mike Tomlin may elect to go for two after each touchdown.
Santos' game-winner in overtime clanked off the upright and barely squeaked in. He's still perfect in each of the past four weeks nd has missed just one PAT this season. While the Chiefs offense isn't continually explosive, they have allowed him the third-most field goal attempts in the league this season. With the Falcons on deck next week, there may be plenty of points to go around.
