Rams Bringing Back Brett Maher

Monday, January 1, 7:38 PM

The Los Angeles Rams are signing veteran kicker Brett Maher on Monday after waiving rookie Lucas Havrisik earlier in the day. Maher began the year as the Rams' kicker and played in the first seven weeks before getting cut on Oct. 24, going 17-for-23 (73.9 percent) on his field-goal opportunities and 12-for-13 with his extra points. Havrisik was cut by the Rams on Monday after missing two of his four extra points in a one-point win over the New York Giants on Sunday. LA just has been unable to settle on a kicker all season, but Maher will hope to come back in and be more successful than he was earlier in the year as the team gets ready for another playoff appearance. In the Week 18 regular season finale against the San Francisco 49ers with key starters potentially being rested, Maher should be avoided for fantasy lineups.

Daniel Carlson Healthy For Week 14

Sunday, December 10, 12:45 AM

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson nailed both extra-point attempts and went one for two on his field goal attempts in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders kicker was on the injury report earlier this week with an illness that caused him to miss practice on Thursday, but he logged a full practice on Friday. Carlson was removed from the injury report before their Week 14 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Playing at home will benefit Carlson as he won't have to deal with the weather factor. Carlson will be relied upon in what should be a close game on Sunday.
