PK Phil Dawson - San Francisco 49ers
|5-11, 200||Born: 1-23-1975||College: Texas||Drafted: ---|
Quick fantasy outlook: After four years at or near the bottom of the rankings in kicker scoring opportunities, the 49ers shot up to number one in 2011 and number two last year. That should provide a significant fantasy boost to free agent acquisition Dawson, who typically saw limited scoring opportunities during his 14 years with the Browns. Candlestick Park is not the most kicker friendly stadium, but then again neither was Cleveland's. Dawson comes off perhaps his best season ever - missing only twice and one of those was blocked. He made seven field goals of 50+ yards in both of the past two seasons. He'll now be working with holder/punter Andy Lee and long snapper Brian Jennings. The key coaching staff members remain intact from last year, boding well for Dawson's kicking opportunities.
