Bills | Dan Carpenter limited Thursday

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:29:52 -0800

Buffalo Bills PK Dan Carpenter (groin) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so Carpenter's status is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Thanks to Buffalo's game being moved away from the blizzard conditions in New York, Carpenter ($3,100) should remain a top FantasyScore option as your kicker, if you're willing to pay up for a booter, of course.

Jets | Nick Folk gets company

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:36:13 -0700

New York Jets PK Nick Folk no longer has to contend with PK Billy Cundiff, who has since been released. However, Folk will now have to hold off veteran PK Dan Carpenter before the team's final roster cut Saturday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Folk isn't even being drafted as a Top 25 fantasy option according to the average draft position (ADP) rankings. The winner of this job will have very little fantasy value unless the Jets suddenly morph into an offensive juggernaut. Unlikely.
