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.

Jason Sanders A Mid-Level Play In Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 12:38 AM

Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders wasn't able to continue his super hot streak in Week 17 but was able to deliver on a couple of field goals. He made two of them within 39 yards and made his only extra-point attempt of the night against the Baltimore Ravens. He'll welcome the Buffalo Bills into Miami in Week 18 for a game that decides who takes home the number-two seed in the AFC. The last time they played, in Week 4, Sanders only saw two extra points and didn't get to attempt a single field goal. The offense turned in one of their worst performances which shouldn't happen twice to the same team while playing at home. Sanders will likely get plenty of field goal work to make sure they put points on the board and get some home field advantage for the playoffs.
