Cairo Santos Not an Ideal Week 1 Streaming Option

Thursday, September 7, 5:35 PM

Chicago Bears kicker Cairo Santos had over 91% of his field goal attempts last season. The veteran kicker only missed two field goals in 2022. However, he did miss five extra-point attempts. Santos returned for his fourth consecutive year with the Bears this season despite some minor struggles last year. Unfortunately, the Chicago kicker has limited fantasy value in Week 1. Last year, he averaged only 6.1 fantasy points per game, making him the 27th-highest-scoring kicker. More importantly, he faces the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Santos scored only 11 fantasy points in the two matchups against the NFC North rivals last season. Fantasy players can find a better streaming option on the waiver wire than Santos.

Brandon McManus goes 3-for-3 against Chiefs

Monday, September 18, 5:28 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Brandon McManus converted on all three of his attempts vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, hitting from 22, 32, and 49 yards out. The former Bronco supplied the only points for the Jaguars, as they lost 9-17. McManus has started off the year on a positive note, with a 100% conversion rate on both PATs (4-4) and field goals (4-4). He should continue to be a fringe top-10 kicking option.
