Robbie Gould: Back on track with nine points

Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 3-for-4 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 33-6 win over New England.

Analysis: Gould was finally given an opportunity to hit multiple field goals in a game for the first time since Week 3. The 37-year-old did miss his first PAT of the year, but the fault should be placed on the blocking unit who allowed a defender through to block the kick. The 49ers' offense has picked things up over the last couple weeks, which bodes well for Gould's scoring opportunities heading into a favorable matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Robbie Gould: Six points on SNF

Gould converted his lone field-goal attempt from 49 yards out while going 3-for-3 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Rams.

Analysis: The 49ers' offense came back to life after an embarrassing showing last week. Unfortunately the game script still didn't provide a whole lot of scoring opportunities for Gould. The veteran leg is 8-for-9 on field-goal attempts through six games, only missing once from beyond 50 yards. The volume hasn't been there, but Gould remains one of the more-accurate kickers in the league heading into a road matchup against the Patriots on Sunday.

Robbie Gould: Just one FG attempt in loss

Gould converted his lone field-goal attempt from 37 yards out and went 2-for-2 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 43-17 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: The 49ers have been decimated by injuries this season, resulting in an ugly couple weeks from the team as a whole. Gould's fantasy value has been limited during this cold spell, but he has remained consistent when called upon. With another week to heal up, perhaps the team gets back on track in the scoring department in a primetime matchup against the Rams on Sunday.

Robbie Gould: No FG attempts on SNF

Gould did not attempt a field goal and went 2-for-2 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: The 49ers' offense sputtered for the first time this season, resulting in an empty fantasy line for Gould. The veteran leg has been reliable when called upon this year (6-for-7 on field-goal attempts and 11-for-11 on point-after tries), so there will always be potential for value so long as the offense puts him in position to score. Look for the entire unit to bounce back in a favorable matchup against Miami on Sunday.

Robbie Gould: Misses first kick this year

Gould went 3-for-4 on field-goal attempts and a perfect 3-for-3 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 36-9 victory over the Giants.

Analysis: Gould suffered his first miss four weeks into the season, shanking a 55-yard attempt wide right in the whipping winds at MetLife Stadium. The silver lining here is that the 37-year-old converted his other attempt from 50-plus yards Sunday, bringing him up to 2-for-3 from that range after going 0-for-4 in 2019. It appears that Gould still has some distance in his leg to complement his excellent accuracy. The 49ers' offense hasn't slowed down since losing multiple key players Week 2, and the battered unit could continue to put up points in another weak NFC East matchup against the Eagles on Sunday, making Gould a solid play next week.

Robbie Gould: Scores seven points in victory

Gould converted his lone field-goal attempt (46 yards) and went 4-for-4 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Gould continued his clean start to the 2020 season, and is now 3-for-3 on field-goal tries and 6-for-6 on point-after attempts. The 49ers lost some key players in an injury-riddled victory, but the veteran leg remains a safe option in a soft matchup against the Giants on Sunday.

Robbie Gould: Perfect in 2020 debut

Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-20 loss to Arizona.

Analysis: Gould picked up where he left off in 2019, when he finished the season going 17-for-18 on field-goal tries. The 37-year-old even hit from 50-plus, a range he went 0-for-4 on during the 2019 regular season. Gould's accuracy combined with the 49ers' ability to consistently move the ball into opponent's territory make him a strong fantasy option. A favorable matchup against the Jets is on tap for Week 2.

Robbie Gould: Considering wind in empty stadiums

Gould expressed in an interview with Good Morning Football that playing in empty stadiums during the 2020 season could impact the wind kickers have to deal with.

Analysis: Gould suggested that the wind swirls more without fans in attendance, which could potentially make long-distance kicks even more difficult this upcoming campaign. While that could be an interesting development for all kickers to consider depending attendance policies, Gould personally will be aiming to rebound from a 2019 season that saw him miss eight of his 31 field-goal attempts as well as an extra-point try in 13 games played.

Robbie Gould: Takes step back in 2019

Gould went 23-for-31 on field-goal attempts and 41-for-42 on point-after tries in 13 games during the 2019 regular season.

Analysis: Gould had a rough start to the 2019 season after finishing 2018 as the most-accurate kicker in the league. The 36-year-old missed seven kicks over his first six contests (12-for-19), and then he went down to injury Week 9 in what appeared to be a disastrous campaign. Undrafted rookie Chase McLaughlin filled in admirably during Gould's three-week absence, which put the veteran's status as starter in jeopardy. The team went back to Gould in Week 13, and he responded by going 17-for-18 (including his first make of 50-plus yards) over his final eight games of the season (including the playoffs). The kicker's second-half bounce back should restore the 49ers' and fantasy owners' faith for the 2020 season.

Robbie Gould: Perfect in Week 17

Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts (30, 470 and 2-for-2 on point-after tries in Sunday's 26-21 win over Seattle.

Analysis: Gould remained perfect on field-goal attempts for the fourth straight week, going 9-for-9 over that span. The 37-year-old appeared to take a step back with a shaky start to the 2019 campaign, but his strong finish to the year restored faith in fantasy owners. He did finish the regular season without hitting a field goal of 50 or more yards (0-for-4 from that range), but he remained accurate from under 50 by going 23-for-27 on the rest of his attempts with two of those misses coming via blocked kicks. Gould should continue to be a high-floor kicker in San Francisco's above-average offense through the playoffs and when he returns to action during the 2020 fantasy season.

Robbie Gould: Nails game-winning kick

Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 4-for-4 on point-after tries in Saturday's 34-31 win over the Rams.

Analysis: It was only a 33-yard attempt, but Gould split the uprights as time expired to seal the victory for San Francisco on Saturday. The 36-year-old has turned in two perfect kicking performances over the last three weeks and has been far better recently -- 8-for-9 on FGAs and 13-for-14 on PATs over the last four weeks -- after a rough start to the season. Gould has yet to hit from beyond 50 yards (0-for-4 from that distance), but his otherwise-accurate leg on an offense that has moved the ball well this year makes him fantasy-worthy heading into an important matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Robbie Gould: Misses first extra point

Gould was a perfect 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and went 1-for-2 on extra-point tries in Sunday's 29-22 loss to Atlanta.

Analysis: Gould turned in his first perfect performance when attempting three or more field goals this season. The veteran kicker still had a blemish when he shanked his first PAT. Gould has been better overall since returning from injury (6-for-7 on field-goal tries), making him a worthy option against a soft Rams defense Saturday.

Robbie Gould: Scores 12 points in shootout

Gould went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts (30, 41) and 6-for-6 on point-after tries in Sundays 48-46 win over the Saints.

Analysis: Gould put the bow on an incredible comeback victory for San Francisco with a clutch field goal as time expired in New Orleans. This was surprisingly the first clean multi-attempt game for the veteran this season. The 36-year-old is coming off of three consecutive seasons of 95 percent or higher field-goal accuracy, but he sits at just 67 percent (16-for-24) over 10 games. Gould's drop-off may be related to injury, bad luck (two blocked kicks) or simply diminished skills in his 15th season as a pro. Despite his early-season struggles, the veteran leg remains a safe fantasy option Sunday against Atlanta while kicking for a powerful offense.

Robbie Gould: Suffers blocked kick in loss

Gould (quadriceps) went 1-for-2 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-2 on point-after tries in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Gould returned from a three-week injury layoff and did not appear to be hampered by his quadriceps. The veteran's lone miss came from 51 yards -- and he is now 0-for-4 on kicks over 50 yards -- but the kick had enough leg and only went wide due to being slightly deflected by Marlon Humphrey's finger. Gould should be considered a safe play in a dome against the Saints on Sunday.

December 2, 2019 5:18 AM EST

Robbie Gould: Back in action Week 13

Gould (quadriceps) is Matt Barrows of The Athletic Sunday in Baltimore.

Analysis: After practicing in full all week, Gould didn't have a designation for this contest and indeed will regain his standing as the 49ers' kicker following a three-game DNP streak. Meanwhile, he'll push Chase McLaughlin to the inactive list.

December 1, 2019 8:44 AM EST

Robbie Gould: Sheds injury tag

Gould (quadriceps) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Analysis: Gould appears set to retake the field after a three-game absence. He stands to reprise his role as San Francisco's top kicker, which could make undrafted rookie Chase McLaughlin expendable.

November 29, 2019 1:41 PM EST

Robbie Gould: Working without limitations

Gould (quadriceps) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Analysis: After missing the last three weeks, it appears Gould is ready to resume his starting kicker role against the Ravens on Sunday. If Gould can finish the week without a setback, the 49ers may cut rookie Chase McLaughlin.

November 27, 2019 2:15 PM EST

Robbie Gould: Inactive, as expected

Gould (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Packers.

Analysis: Gould was considered doubtful for this contest, and he'll sit out a third straight contest. Chase McLaughlin will serve as the 49ers' kicker.

November 24, 2019 4:06 PM EST

Robbie Gould: Unlikely to suit up Sunday

Gould (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Packers, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Analysis: Gould last took part in practice Nov. 7, missing two contests in the process. According to Wagoner, Gould was spotted kicking on a side field Friday, so he may be making some progress through his strained right quadriceps. Still, considering his status, Gould seems poised to miss a third game in a row. In the event that happens, Chase McLaughlin will serve as the 49ers kicker yet again.

November 22, 2019 2:07 PM EST

Robbie Gould: Misses another practice

Gould (quadriceps) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Analysis: Gould continues to nurse a lingering quadriceps issue, and he's trending toward missing a third straight contest. Barring an unexpected step forward in Gould's recovery, expect the 49ers to rely on Chase Mclaughlin to handle kicking duties against the Packers on Sunday.
