by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9:13 am ET) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said kicker Nick Novak is adjusting to the kicking operation -- the snapper and the holder -- when discussing Novak's miss in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, the Houston Chronicle reports.

O'Brien acknowledged the actual kick -- a 53-yarder that fell well short of the crossbar -- was not close, but he wants to see Novak getting "comfortable with the whole operation."

(10/5/2015) Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein connected on a 30-yard field goal and hit all three of his extra points in Sunday's 24-22 victory against Arizona.

Although he hasn't been used extensively, Zuerlein has still been rock solid with six field goals and eight extra points. While that's not going to garner much fantasy attention, he certainly has produced as well as St. Louis could have hoped thus far.

Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos makes seven field goals in Week 4 loss

(10/5/2015) Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos made all seven of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Bengals.

Santos had all of four field goal attempts through three weeks this season, but nearly tripled his total with his efforts Sunday. The Chiefs face the relatively porous defense of the Bears in Week 5, which could lead to a fair amount of scoring chances for a team averaging 25 points per game.

Vikings kicker Blair Walsh misses another field goal in Week 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2015) Vikings kicker Blair Walsh made two of three field goals and both extra point attempts in Sunday's loss at Denver. He missed a 39-yard field goal attempt. "He needs to make those kicks. It's disappointing," head coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities.

Walsh's struggles continue as he's missed a field goal in his of his last seven games, including the preseason. He's 5 of 7 on field goal attempts during the regular season.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2015) Chargers placekicker Josh Lambo was officially 3 for 3 on field goals attempts, including the game-winner, and was also perfect on three extra points in helping defeat the Browns on Sunday.

Lambo was good from 46, 45, and 39 yards, but he missed a 44-yard attempt on the final play of regulation only to be bailed out by a penalty on the Browns.

In a year in which plenty of kickers have already missed important kicks for teams throughout the league, Lambo was extremely fortunate to get a do-over in this one.

(10/5/2015) Packers kicker Mason Crosby made 1 of 2 field goals and 2 of 2 extra points in Sunday's victory over the 49ers.

Crosby missed his first field goal of the season at the end of the first half Sunday, but he made his next attempt, from 31 yards out. Crosby has totaled 33 points on seven field goals and 12 extra points through four games this season.

Jaguars kicker Jason Myers misses two key field goals Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2015) Jaguars kicker Jason Myers connected on 2 of 4 field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Myers was 5 of 6 on the season entering Sunday, and while his two made field goals provided some fantasy value, both misses proved to be costly for the 1-3 Jaguars.

With six seconds remaining in the game, Myers missed what would have been a go-ahead 53-yard field goal, and he again failed to connect in overtime, pushing a 48-yarder wide left on Jacksonville's second possession of the extra period. The Colts subsequently assumed possession at their own 30 yard line and marched down the field for a game-winning field goal of their own.

Browns PK Travis Coons sends four through uprights Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2015) Browns placekicker Travis Coons was perfect again Sunday, hitting four field goals (40, 36, 33, 28) and converting his only extra point attempt.

Coons remained flawless on the season, providing his best scoring output to date. As a cheap option in daily formats, Coons certainly returned well over his projected value. The Cleveland offense must perform more consistently before he can be confidently recommended to Fantasy owners, but it has been scoring more points than expected recently.

Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski maintains perfection Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2015) Raiders standout placekicker Sebastian Janikowski connected on two field goals and two extra points in the Week 4 loss to Chicago.

The veteran kicker is now 7 for 7 on the year after making kicks from 29 and 41 yards. Janikowski has shown no signs of aging, and still possesses one of the most powerful legs in the league. The Raiders get a matchup with a stingy Denver defense next week in Oakland.

Saints kicker Zach Hocker misses potential game-winner in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2015) Saints kicker Zach Hocker made 2 of 3 field goal attempts and added two extra point conversions in Sunday's win against the Cowboys.

Hocker nailed both a long 51-yard field goal and a chip-shot 29-yard kick in third quarter, but most will likely remember his lone miss on the night - a short 30-yard attempt that would have won the Saints the game with only a few seconds left in regulation.

The Saints quickly made amends for Hocker's error when Drew Brees found C.J. Spiller for an 80-yard touchdown on the second play of overtime, but the miss was now Hocker's third of the season (two field goals and one extra point).

Still, Hocker is 7 of 9 on field goal tries this season, so he likely has some leeway, but he would be advised to make the most of his chances over the next few weeks.
