Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 1-for-1 on point-after tries in Sunday's 13-0 win over the Saints.
Analysis: It was a low-scoring affair Sunday, but Gould was afforded enough opportunities to produce points for fantasy managers. The veteran leg hit from 24 and 46 yards out and now owns a strong 84 percent conversion rate through 11 games. The 49ers may be asked to score more than 13 points against the Dolphins' dangerous offense Sunday, making Gould a strong play for Week 13.

Gould went 1-for-1 on field-goal attempts and 5-for-5 on point-after tries in Monday's 38-10 win over the Cardinals.
Analysis: San Francisco's revamped offense moved the ball with ease on Arizona's defense, resulting in plenty of low-pressure kicks for Gould in the blowout victory. The 39-year-old is putting together another reliable season with an 82 percent conversion rate on field goals while converting 96 percent of his PATs. Gould carries a high fantasy floor into next Sunday's tilt against the Saints.
Nov 22, 2022 11:19 AM EST
Gould went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 1-for-2 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Chargers.
Analysis: Gould wasn't tasked with difficult kicks Sunday (long of 26 yards), resulting in his second game with three made field goals over his last three appearances. The veteran kicker shanked a PAT, as he is prone to do once or twice a year. San Francisco's offense got a lot healthier coming out of the bye week, so Gould's fantasy stock is on the rise heading into a matchup against the Cardinals next Monday.
Nov 14, 2022 11:07 AM EST
Gould was a perfect 1-for-1 on field-goal attempts and 4-for-4 on point-after tries in Sunday's 31-14 win over the Rams.
Analysis: San Francisco's offense was clicking with new addition Christian McCaffrey scoring three touchdowns, so Gould was given the easy task of hitting a chip shot field goal and tacking on PATs. The veteran leg won't be available for Week 9, as the 49ers are entering a bye week. Gould will resume play against the Chargers on Nov. 13 as a reliable fantasy kicker on an offense trending upwards for the second half of the season.
Oct 31, 2022 11:13 AM EST
Gould went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 44-23 loss to the Chiefs.
Analysis: Gould was in rare form Sunday, splitting the uprights on long attempts from 49 and 50 yards out respectively. The 11 total points is also the highest mark for the veteran kicker through seven games. Gould makes for a fine kicking option against the Rams next Sunday.
Oct 24, 2022 9:00 AM EST
Gould (knee) did not attempt a field goal and converted both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-14 loss to Atlanta.
Analysis: Gould injured his knee making two tackles last week, but he was healthy enough to suit up for Sunday's contest. Hopefully the veteran's injury designation moved fantasy managers away from him for this dud. The positive news is that Gould looked healthy on both of his successful point-after tries, putting him back on the map for a matchup with Kansas City next Sunday.

Gould (knee) was removed from the 49ers' injury report Friday and has been cleared to play in Sunday's game in Atlanta, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Though the 49ers signed Sam Sloman to the practice squad earlier this week to have another kicker on hand as insurance, Gould made enough progress in his recovery from the left knee contusion he picked up in last Sunday's win over Carolina to get the green light for Week 6. After sitting out the 49ers' initial Week 6 practice Wednesday, Gould returned to the field Thursday as a full participant and seemingly erased any concerns the 49ers might have had about his health. Through San Francisco's first five games this season, Gould has converted six of nine field-goal tries and 11 of 11 extra-point attempts.
Oct 14, 2022 10:52 AM EST
Gould (knee) was listed as a full practice participant Thursday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Gould's full listing comes as somewhat of a surprise, after he was listed as a non-participant Wednesday and wasn't seen doing any kicking work in the open portion of Thursday's session, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. However, the 39-year-old must have done enough behind the scenes Thursday to convince the 49ers that his left knee contusion isn't anything that will affect his availability for Sunday's game in Atlanta. The 49ers were still compelled to sign kicker Sam Sloman to the practice squad Wednesday, so he'll be on hand as an insurance option in the event that Gould's condition takes an unexpected turn for the worse heading into the weekend.
Oct 13, 2022 1:18 PM EST
Gould (knee) was working out on a side field during the media-access portion of Thursday's practice and is expected to be listed as a non-participant for the second straight day, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, Gould was in uniform during the 49ers' second Week 6 practice, but he didn't attempt any kicks and was spotted doing jogging and conditioning work. Though Gould's injury is a contusion to his left knee -- his non-kicking knee -- he could still be experiencing enough discomfort in his plant leg to put his status in question for Sunday's game in Atlanta. The 49ers signed Sam Sloman to their practice squad Tuesday and will presumably elevate him to the 53-man roster if Gould isn't able to handle kicking duties Sunday.
Oct 13, 2022 12:10 PM EST
Gould (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Gould sustained a knee contusion during the team's Week 5 win over the Panthers, and while he appears to have avoided a serious injury, he may still miss some time to rehab the issue. The 49ers will work out numerous free agent kickers this week in the event that they need an emergency replacement for Week 6.
Oct 12, 2022 11:48 AM EST
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said that Gould will be reevaluated Wednesday for a knee contusion sustained during Sunday's 37-15 win over the Panthers, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Gould appears to have avoided any serious knee damage after sustaining this injury in the third quarter of the 49ers' Week 5 win, though the exact severity of this issue should become clearer following Wednesday's evaluation. Shanahan added that the team will try out free agent kickers this week in case the 39-year-old is ultimately ruled out for this coming Sunday's game against Atlanta. Gould made one of his two field-goal attempts and all three PATs before exiting against Carolina, and he has converted 17 of his 21 total kicking attempts so far this season.
Oct 10, 2022 3:10 PM EST
Gould is believed to have sustained a left knee contusion during Sunday's win over the Panthers, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Gould was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game shortly after suffering a knee injury while making a tackle in the third quarter, but he isn't believed to be dealing with any structural damage. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for next Sunday's game against Atlanta, but he appears to have avoided a significant injury.
Oct 9, 2022 5:32 PM EST
Gould (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Panthers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Gould was banged up while making a tackle on a kick return in the third quarter Sunday, and he'll be unavailable down the stretch. His status for next Sunday's game against Atlanta isn't yet clear. Prior to his departure, Gould converted one of two field-goal attempts while making all three of his extra-point tries.
Oct 9, 2022 3:55 PM EST
Gould is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Carolina due to a left knee injury, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Gould made a tackle on special teams in the third quarter of Sunday's matchup and limped off the field afterward. It's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return to the game.
Oct 9, 2022 3:24 PM EST
Gould went 1-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 3-for-3 on point-after tries in Monday's 24-9 win over the Rams.
Analysis: Gould whiffed on a 42-yard attempt in second quarter, but was otherwise perfect on the night. It was the sure-footed kicker's second miss this season, although the other one was blocked. Gould remains a safe play heading into a matchup against the Panthers on Sunday.
Oct 4, 2022 2:12 PM EST
Gould went 1-for-1 on field-goal attempts and 1-for-1 on point-after tries in Sunday's 11-10 loss to the Broncos.
Analysis: Gould wasn't needed much in a low-scoring affair, but he rewarded fantasy managers with a 51-yard make in the thin air of Mile High Stadium. Now operating as the oldest kicker in the league, Gould has proven he can still hit from 50-plus, going 3-for-4 on attempts from that distance last season. Consider the veteran leg a safe kicking option against the Rams next Monday.
Sep 26, 2022 12:07 PM EST
Gould went 2-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 3-for-3 on point-after tries in Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seahawks.
Analysis: Gould would have been perfect had Seattle's Mike Jackson not blocked the kicker's third short field-goal attempt and returned it for Seattle's lone touchdown of the game. The 40-year-old still finished with a strong fantasy line in comparison to last week's low-volume result. Gould should get a couple extra yards added to his max kick distance in the thin air of Mile High Stadium in a road matchup against Denver on Sunday.
Sep 19, 2022 7:38 PM EST
Gould was a perfect 1-for-1 on field-goal attempts (25-yarder) and 1-for-1 on point-after tries in Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Bears.
Analysis: Gould is one of only a few 49ers who can say that they got the job done in a disappointing offensive showing in the 2022 season opener. The soon-to-be 40-year-old is as reliable as they come -- as evidenced by him remaining perfect in treacherous conditions at Soldier Field -- so long as his offense gives him scoring opportunities. Gould remains a safe kicking option heading into a Week 2 matchup at home against Seattle, where it is currently forecasted to be sunny and clear at Levi's Stadium next Sunday.
Sep 12, 2022 3:32 PM EST
Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 on extra-point tries in Friday's 28-21 preseason win over the Packers.
Analysis: Gould was tested early with an attempt from 50 yards out, and the veteran split the uprights with ease. The 39-year-old probably won't hit from much further than that at his advanced age, but Gould remains one of the more-accurate kickers in the NFL heading into 2022.
Aug 13, 2022 11:14 AM EST
Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 3-for-3 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Rams.
Analysis: Gould hit clutch field goals on the 49ers' final drives of the first half and overtime to help propel his team to the playoffs. The veteran kicker also had to fill in at punter for the first time since 2009 after Mitch Wishnowsky (concussion) was knocked out of the game on kickoff coverage. Gould finishes the regular season with another solid campaign, going 20-for-23 (87 percent) on field-goal attempts and 39-for-40 on PATs. The 38-year-old remains a strong kicking option in DFS formats when the 49ers take on the Cowboys in the wild-card round on Sunday.
