Panthers' Graham Gano: Three points versus Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/27/2016) Gano converted his lone field goal attempt in Friday's preseason game against the Patriots.

Gano's 29-yarder gave him his only points of Friday's contest, when the Panthers' offense failed to move the ball and put him in scoring situations. When called upon, Gano has converted all seven of his field goal attempts across Carolina's three preseason tilts, although he did miss an extra point last week against Baltimore. Coming off a career-best 146 points last season, Gano's fantasy value currently sits at its highest level since he entered the league in 2009.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/27/2016) Franks' teammate Marshall Koehn was released by the Dolphins on Saturday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

After winning the job as an undrafted rookie last season, Franks was able to fend off undrafted rookie Marshall Koehn. Franks didn't have many opportunities last year, converting 13 of 16 field-goal attempts and 33 of 36 PATs. The gap between field-goal tries and extra points figures to be much smaller this year.

(8/27/2016) Gostkowski made two of four field goal attempts en route to scoring seven points in Friday's preseason win over the Panthers.

Gostkowski, who missed a 30-yarder and a 52-yarder on Friday, missed just three times on 36 field goal attempts in 2015, and career-wise carries a 87.3 percent mark. After recording a league-high 151 points last season, Gostkowski remains atop the fantasy kicker rankings while working behind the Patriots' offense.

Dolphins' Marshall Koehn: Hits field goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/26/2016) Koehn connected on 45-yard field goal in Thursday's preseason win over the Falcons.

Koehn is battling with incumbent Andrew Franks for the kicking job. While Frank, who was 13-of-16 last season with the Dolphins, certainly has a leg up, Koehn made a good showing on Thursday night as Franks missed his only attempt. Look for this kicking battle to come down to the final preseason game.

Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski: In form as season approaches
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/26/2016) Gostkowski has made all five of his field goal attempts, en route to recording 17 points over the Patriots' first two preseason tilts.

Gostkowski is healthy as the 2016 season approaches and by virtue of four straight years in which he has recorded more than 150 points, including a league-high 151 in 2015, he remains atop fantasy kicker rankings while working behind the New England offense.

Falcons' Matt Bryant: Ruled out for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/25/2016) Bryant will not play in Thursday's preseason matchup with Miami for undisclosed reasons.

Bryant is coming off of an injury shortened 2015 that saw him connect on just 14-of-18 field goals. Entering his age-40 season, the veteran kicker is competing with Shayne Graham, who replaced Bryant for the final six games of the season last year, for the kicker spot. Bryant's absence will give Graham a few extra in game reps in Thursday's game.

Bengals' Zach Hocker: Strained tendon in plant foot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/25/2016) Hocker has been bothered by a strained tendon in his plant foot, preventing him from practicing during most of training camp and the preseason, reports.

Hocker has missed out on an opportunity to displace incumbent Mike Nugent, who has missed three field goal attempts in the first two preseason games.

Bengals' Mike Nugent: Rough preseason so far
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/25/2016) Nugent has missed three field goal attempts so far in the preseason, though his competition in camp has been hurt, reports.

Nugget might see a push from Zach Hocker on Sunday against Jacksonville. Hocker has been out the last two games with a strained tendon in his plant foot. Nugget has been serviceable but never really outstanding as a field goal kicker in his tenure with the team, though he's added to his value with his ability on kickoffs.

Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Struggles continue in Tuesday joint practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8/24/2016) Aguayo, who admitted Monday that he might be overthinking when kicking had another three misses in Tuesday's joint practice with the Browns, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The rookie kicker had admitted Monday that he was perhaps focusing "too much on detail and techniques" on the misses he'd had until that point, and that he just needed to "kick the ball." That approach would have come in handy Tuesday, when Aguayo misfired on three kicks in the joint practice session, including one particular miss that drew groans from the crowd. Head coach Dirk Koetter made no bones about his kicker's struggles when speaking to the media, but deferred any questions to general manager Jason Licht about whether another kicker might be brought in as competition for the 2016 second-round pick if the struggles continue. "He's struggling," coach Dirk Koetter conceded after Tuesday's practice. "He's struggling a little bit right now. He has to work his way through it. We've talked to him. He knows what he has to do. He's working through it."
