  Texans | Nick Novak in concussion protocol    Sun Aug 21, 04:11 PM

Houston Texans PK Nick Novak (concussion) is in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: Novak has been competing with rookie UDFA Kai'mi Fairbairn and holding a lead, but if this concussion is an issue, it could be put his Week 1 status in jeopardy. You should probably just stay away from the Houston kickers with so many other options in fantasy drafts.

  Ravens | Justin Tucker boasts strong leg    Thu Aug 4, 01:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker claims he could hit a field goal of more than 84 yards in the ideal conditions. 'We think about these things really specifically, if you send me out there you have a reason for it -- because they think I can make a kick,' Tucker said Thursday, Aug. 4, on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. 'To me it doesn't matter where I just have to hit a good ball. If conditions are prime -- like last season, we opened up in Denver, the weather was warm and the field was nice, you're up in altitude so the ball just carries and in pregame I hit the cross bar from 85. So if the situation is just prime, maybe 84 and a half yards.'

Footballguys view: Because you need to know everything. We already think highly of Tucker. In so far as kickers are concerned, he's less odd than most. That said, this is a mighty claim, and if he can hit it from anywhere, at any time, he can be a help in leagues that reward you for distance on field goals.

  Broncos | Brandon McManus showing well    Mon Aug 1, 11:31 PM

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus nailed seven of his eight field goal attempts Monday, Aug. 1, including a pair of attempts from beyond 50 yards. His only miss came from 40 yards.

Footballguys view: The Broncos offense might be scoring more field goals than touchdowns this year if the quarterback play can't get up to at least adequate. McManus is worth a pick in the top 5-6 kickers this year.

  Jets | Nick Folk will have competition    Sun Jun 26, 05:06 PM

New York Jets PK Nick Folk will compete with PK Ross Martin for the kicker job during training camp, but the team would save around $2.2 million in salary cap space if Folk is released.

Footballguys view: Martin was a highly accurate kicker the last two years at Duke, so he can give Folk a run to save the Jets some money. His kickoff leg is not the best, but rule changes should make that less important.

Footballguys view: Boswell was first in the league in field goal attempts and makes per game last year, and he was second to only Stephen Gostkowski in scoring per game.
